VTEC's infrared platform is the first product in a line of products that will be sold under the IRX brand. IRX is an infrared extreme, it's a true infrared platform that brings productivity, energy savings, and ease-of-operation to the end user. You can replace any traditional charbroiler with the VTEC and realize benefits immediately because you have more usable space and you can control your cooking environment much more effectively. The gas savings alone will pay for the unit, but the best part is with the even-heating on this unique charbroiler, you will see consistent results batch after batch no matter who's managing the grill.
Charbroilers historically have been something that have been very difficult to manage. Traditional charbroilers cook with a lot of convective drying and conduction, as a result, the moisture is stripped out of the food. The VTEC charbroiler utilizes infrared energy. It cooks as quickly as any other platform, but without that convective drying you will actually produce more yield, meaning your food comes off noticeably larger, heavier, and juicer than you would get off any traditional charbroiler. VTEC's burner system is made up of three components. You have an atmospheric burner, and a emitter panel, and a stainless steel cooking grate. The 3 of these components work together to generate a true, infrared platform. Unlike traditional charbroilers which have hot spots and cold spots, every burner zone is entirely uniform with the VTEC platform; this allows the unit to be partially used in off-peak hours, saving ever more energy. It also allows different temperatures to be utilized on one grill for different products. It's typical for heavy-duty charbroilers to exhibit as much as 400-450 degrees of temperature difference across corners, on the VTEC platform plus or minus 20 degrees.
In addition to the operational improvements, you will also see labor savings in cleaning. Everything that falls in the emitter panel is reduced to carbon and ash. As result, cleanup is completely dry, you simply brush away the debris. There is no need to ever remove the carbon-emitter panels, unless it is time for replacement. Because everything that falls on these emitter panels is reduced to ash, you have no grease or debris falling into the crumb tray that could cause secondary fires or flare-ups. The VTEC is available in 14" through 60" sizes, that's one burner zone through five. And what that offers is the ability to cook a number of different menu items on a small platform and zone control on larger platforms, meaning you could set one burner for one temperature range and another burner for a different temperature range. The Vulcan VTEC infrared charbroiler is a game changer. We deliver increased production and improved food quality with consistent results, all while reducing your gas and labor usage. Experience true infrared cooking and taste the difference.
