Kitchen Chillers as used on East Coast and West Coast Main Line Trains
ECML embarked upon a recent upgrade programme to their Kitchen, Buffet and Staff Car areas to improve the service and product offering to their passengers. Part of this programme required the design and construction of kitchen chiller cabinets to chill various sizes of food storage and refrigerating cabinets in these areas.
In conjunction with Brush Wabtec, the appointed main contractor for the project, UA designed, tested and produced kitchen chillers now fitted and operational on the ECML fleet including all Mk3 and Mk4 vehicles. Our in house design engineers drew on their vast experience in producing refrigeration units for the rail industry to design, prototype and produce large quantities of kitchen chillers to a very tight lead time and delivery schedule.
This chiller cassette module has been designed to chill approximately 0.75 m3 of volume storage, from ambient temperature of 26 degrees Celsius to 5 degrees Celsius in approximately 30 minutes.
The chiller module is capable of maintaining the average temperature within the storage compartment at 3 degrees Celsius throughout normal service use, and set to cycle between 5 and 2 degrees Celsius.
