Vulcan ARS48 Details

Make the most of your cooking line by adding this Vulcan ARS48 48" self-contained refrigerated chef base to your kitchen! This base has two drawers and can hold up to a total of (4) 12" x 20" x 6" pans of ingredients close at hand. By keeping ingredients nearby but still refrigerated, you can prevent additional trips back and forth to the refrigerator while still protecting your food from time and temperature abuse.

Each of the drawers has 14 gauge stainless steel drawer slides, a magnetic snap-in gasket, and a self-closing mechanism to ensure that the drawers close properly no matter how busy your staff is. And, for when you need to load or unload the drawers, they also have a stay open feature to hold them open while you work. Plus, to reduce interior condensation the drawers have controllable anti-condensate perimeter drawer heaters.

This unit features a stainless steel countertop with a marine edge that helps to contain drips and spills until they can be cleaned up, reducing the chance that your floors could become slippery. The top has a maximum weight capacity of 625 lb. so you can place your countertop charbroiler, griddle, or other equipment safely on top.

The front, sides, and interior of the cabinet are also made of stainless steel for long-lasting durability and ease of cleaning. Inside, this chef base has 2" thick high-density, foamed-in, non-CFC insulation to help maintain cold interior temperatures and add extra rigidity to the cabinet. A set of 4" casters is included to make it easy to roll this unit away from the wall for easier servicing and cleaning. Plus, when you need to access the refrigeration system for service or maintenance the side, front, and rear access panels are easy to locate and remove.

The front-breathing design of the refrigeration system allows for zero-clearance installation against walls and between other equipment. The system uses a 1/3 hp compressor to circulate the R-404A refrigerant and the automatic non-electric condensate evaporator, off-cycle evaporator defrost, and condenser filter make this model easier to maintain. The interior temperature range of 34-38 degrees Fahrenheit is controlled by the INTELA-TRAUL controls. A 115V electrical connection is required for operation.
