Optimum equipment for the catering trade

From professional dehumidification and heating technology to food quality assurance

Optimum equipment for the catering trade

High quality for high standards

In the catering trade, high standards must be met in every respect – whether it comes to the comfortable and flexible interior design of restaurants and event rooms, reliable quality assurance of food that is stored and processed, strict compliance with the hygiene regulations, or special technical equipment ensuring faster and safer workflows for the staff. Trotec supports caterers who set great store by high-quality dishes and service by supplying them with the ideal technical equipment: with powerful dehumidifiers, high-end heating devices, precise measuring instruments and versatile screen fences.

If the demands for quality in the catering trade increase, so do the requirements as regards the technical equipment. In every respect. Providing the latest technology, the Trotec Group supports restaurant owners and event managers in order to ensure that their special service is on everyone's lips and that their reservation books keep on filling. For quality begins in the technical equipment of the working spaces and dining areas.

Dehumidification in commercial kitchens

On the one hand, food is steamed and cooked in a restaurant kitchen, whereby much water is released into the air. On the other hand, the worktops and appliances are cleaned thoroughly during the evening and nighttime hours – usually using large amounts of water. All these workflows cause the relative humidity in the kitchen and dining area to increase to a very high level. For application in the catering trade, the Trotec Group provides mobile and stationary desiccant dehumidifiers of the TTR series of different performance classes. These dehumidifiers are controlled via an integrated electronic hygrostat guaranteeing that the humidity level does not exceed 60 percent. The models of the TTR series are also perfectly suited for dehumidification applications in cold storage rooms since they work reliably even at temperatures down to -20 degrees Celsius.

Another ideal solution for the catering trade, particularly for dehumidifying storage facilities, are Trotec's stationary condenser dryers of the DH series. They impress with a particularly high dehumidification performance and especially high profitability.

Climate values in the catering trade at one glance

To allow employees to keep an eye on the humidity values at all times, Trotec's moisture measuring devices and particularly the climate data loggers offer reliable measurements – whenever climatic details are concerned.

Thermometers for reliable food control

In a high-end restaurant kitchen, a food thermometer is of course a must-have. Using the compact BP2F and the robust BP5F, every catering expert is perfectly equipped and able to check the maintenance of the cold chain or cooking temperatures of dishes. Thanks to their infrared technology, the food thermometers can on the one hand be used to determine the surface temperature of individual foodstuffs or entire goods pallets. On the other hand, the convenient fold-out penetration probe made of stainless steel can be used to easily and reliably identify the core temperature of the goods or dishes.

Additional heat for every event

Additional heat at the push of a button: This is in a particularly great demand during events in separate halls and dining tents. Using the electric heater fan of the TEH series you will get the right amount of heat for every application. The electric heaters, which can also be fastened to a wall, can be used in a flexible manner almost everywhere while consuming no oxygen. Owing to the integrated thermostat control, the generated warm air current can be infinitely adjusted to the desired temperature – for an optimum feel-good warmth for your guests.

Cosy warmth for the outdoor gastronomy

Making sure that your guests feel at ease during cooler evening hours on the terrace and can admire the starry sky, the IR 1200 S, IR 2000 S, IR 2570 S radiant heater provides targeted warmth at the tables without preheating. This elegant quartz radiator can be mounted on a wall or ceiling and can be used in a flexible manner thanks to its adjustable inclination angle. Without disturbing the guests, by the way – for this infrared radiant heater does not produce any odours or noises during operation.

Odour neutralisers: fast and reliable

After a barbecue, a show cooking event or a sumptuous buffet, the dining area must be quickly cleaned – and freed from food odours. This is where Trotec's odour neutralisers come into play. They ensure clean, fresh air in the rooms in a professional and fast way. Naturally without the use of any chemicals or fragrances!

Screen fences for setting up separate areas

Often, guests renting the restaurant facilities for a special event wish to have a private area where a buffet can be set up for the VIPs, or where smaller groups can retire for a conversation. The screen fence VarioScreen from Trotec can be set up quickly and provides ideal protection for the guests.

Make use of Trotec's best practice industrial services

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 962-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!
