Indel B to further upgrade K Plus mini bars
Compressor mini bars absorb '70% less energy than the best available'
Indel B is preparing to launch an upgraded version of its energy efficiency A and A+ K Plus mini bars — the Compressor mini bar in energy efficiency class A++.
The company’s continual focus on improving energy efficiency means that hotels can save both energy and money by using the K 40 Plus system, said Indel B.
“They absorb 70% less energy than the best mini-bars available on the market, they are environment-care designed and they grant a significant economic saving: about €20 (AED 91, US $25) per year compared to the best absorption mini-bars on the market and about €50 (AED 227, $62) per year compared to the low quality absorption mini-bars on the markets,” said Indel B marketing manager Sara Berardi.
“Only a compressor mini bar can be in energy class A+; all other systems are in energy class E or lower,” Berardi added.
Indel B produced its first mini bar with an “efficient and silent” compressor refrigerant system in 1990, to meet the demand from the Hilton Hotel chain, and has since continued to develop its product lines.
It has won a variety of awards, including recognition in the ‘2009 Excellent Awards — The Italian Award for Tourism’ promoted by Master Meeting.
The K 40 Plus range has an “extremely long” life expectancy, is CFC free, and has much lower risks of refrigerant leaks than an absorption system mini bar because it uses less welding points, said Berardi.
Eventually, Berardi predicts that companies will stop making absorption mini bars because advance compressor solutions are the “responsible choice” for hoteliers.
