Customer questions about this product

Can I put warm items in my air curtain merchandiser to chill them?
This unit is intended for maintaining cold product temperatures, but not for making warm items colder. For best results, items loaded into this unit should be pre-chilled to proper serving temperatures, and ambient conditions should not exceed 75 degrees Fahrenheit / 55 percent relative humidity.
I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Does Beverage-Air warrant this item for use in a food truck?
This item is covered under Beverage-Air's warranty contingent upon the unit being kept in a controlled climate. This means that the interior of the food truck may not be susceptible to extreme high or low temperatures. If warranty service is required, the truck must be able to sit stationary for 24-48 hours to allow for a technician to service the equipment.
What does the “H” or “HC” mean in the newer Beverage-Air model numbers?
This is a representation that the unit is using a “Hydrocarbon” refrigerant. This would include both R290 and R600a refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by Beverage-Air in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Can this item fit through a standard height 80" doorway ?
Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

Beverage-Air VMHC-18-1-G Details

Create a stunning display of grab-and-go items with the Beverage-Air VMHC-18-1-G VueMax 52" gray air curtain merchandiser. This merchandiser boasts bright LED lighting, adjustable, 2-position shelves, and price tag molding to make presenting bottled beverages and packaged snacks a breeze. Because it's certified for these products, it's the perfect way to encourage quick, on-the-go purchases. Plus, the sides of the unit are made of lowE double pane glass for increased visibility. These glass panels are tempered to help retain cold air.

For energy savings, the unit comes standard with a night curtain. Simply lower it during off-hours to maintain temperatures more efficiently, trapping cold air inside the display area. The refrigeration system, with (2) 1/3 hp compressors, also circulates eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. The merchandiser's overall design maintains temperatures between 36 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

The design also ensures minimal maintenance, with an easy-to-clean painted steel interior and an automatic defrost. The condenser slides out for easy service, too. A powder-coated gray steel exterior and foamed-in-place CFC-free polyurethane insulation provide structural integrity, while 6" adjustable legs allow the unit to stand straight and tall on uneven ground. Durable, attractive, and energy-efficient, this merchandiser is a great unit for a range of businesses, from convenience stores to fast casual eateries. It requires a 115V electrical connection for operation.
