KFC gets timely upgrade with Mitsubishi Electric cooling

KFC, Mitsubishi Electric

The recent KFC project in Banbury, Oxfordshire involving Kinlochs and Son (KSL) demonstrated that a restaurant refurbishment often requires more than just a change of menu.

The KFC franchisee needed the project completed in 7 weeks, and chose Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Quality Partner, KSL.

Kevin Gregory, contracts manager at KSL, says: “The franchisee was keen on the idea of saving energy via a VRF air curtain and recognised the advantages in selecting an economical system which provides a rapid return on the initial investment. During the summer months the newly installed air curtain will deliver cool air and stop flying insects from entering the premises - a major consideration for food outlets.”

The Mitsubishi Electric City Multi VRF heat recovery system offers simultaneous heating and cooling, distributing surplus heat from cooling operations to other areas of the building. Featuring twopipe technology for quicker installation and a BC controller for ‘intelligent’ decision making, the new system will deliver instant efficiency savings and could reduce energy consumption by up to 30%.
