SKOPE Catches Judges Eye

SKOPE Refrigeration have been named a finalist in the Project & Product: Resource Efficient Design category of the New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards. SKOPE developed a new fridge that uses CO2 as the refrigerant, eliminating the need for the high global warming R134a refrigerant (HFC = Hydrofluorocarbon). It is this product that has been selected as a finalist in the awards.

 

Through considerable investment in Research and Development and a grant from Callaghan Innovation, SKOPE has designed the B600F-3 CO2 refrigeration system to be very cost effective, whilst maintaining its high refrigeration capacity to ensure the rapid chilling of product. Most importantly, the B600F-3 uses less energy than its R134a predecessor (which was Very High Efficiency in its own right). As there are tens of thousands of beverage coolers in Australasia that could utilise CO2 as a refrigerant, the potential for reduction in power consumption, combined with reduction in environmental impact, is large.

SKOPE’s new environmental test chamber significantly increases testing capacity, ensuring faster project turnaround times and improved accuracy. Almost any environment can be simulated within the chamber, ensuring the cabinet’s performance in the harshest of climates. The new environmental test chamber was key to the success of this project, as it allowed us to test the refrigeration system in varied conditions, loads, and ambient conditions using a ‘Dynamic Heat Loading Simulator’. We can replicate any condition then push it further if it’s not enough to meet the SKOPE standard. SKOPE sets its standards high to ensure client expectations are exceeded. We design products that are made to last, with a focus on durability and extended product life. SKOPE is recognised on the global stage for our work in energy efficiency and natural refrigerant systems.

SKOPE for Inspiration

“The whole can-do attitude that came from the customs team was amazing because I kept throwing things at them.”

David Quon- Hospitality Consultant, David Quon & Associates

“In the bar, we had SKOPE design fridges with glass fronts and soft lighting to showcase the variety of wines on offer. The resulting colour from the illuminated bottles contributes to the warmth and character of the bar.”

Damian Heads- Executive Chef, Steel Bar and Grill

“The team attitude of absolutely everyone we have dealt with at SKOPE in every department has been outstanding. ”

“The Irinox Bakery Day System enables us to produce each and every product to our exacting requirements, no matter how many pastries we are producing. ”

Dominique Colombie- Owner, Paneton Bakery

“Braising meat is very simple with an Irinox Blast Chiller, we just place a temperature probe in it and then leave it to cook. Because it cooks very gently we get up to 15% higher yield due to less moisture.”

Lil Huckle- Food Services Manager and Executive Chef, White Tie Catering

“It is important that the cooler doesn't get too cold as this would freeze the flowers, causing untold damage. We love the MISA Cool Room because the digital controlling unit means stock won't ever freeze.”
