Because it does not waste water or use chemicals, TAC is an environmentally friendly option that doesn't create an off taste in the drinks. With a variety of configurations, capac- ities, and technologies available, VZN sys- tems can address the specific water needs of any operation. VIZION is a brand of A.J. Antunes & Co. Family owned and operated, A.J. Antunes & Co. also manufactures foodser- vice equipment under the ROUNDUP® may promise similar results, but they also require cartridge changes on a weekly, bi- weekly or monthly basis. With a VZN sys- tem, only mechanically pure water enters the carbon cartridge, reducing the filtration load and preventing clogs. This minimizes maintenance issues and ensures the carbon cartridge only needs to be replaced on an annual basis. Because the ultrafilter is both self cleaning and long lasting, the VZN sys- VIZION (Con't. from p. 16) tem can provide owners and operators with better water and better ROI. The VZN system can also include our Template-Assisted Crystallization (TAC) technology to address the most significant maintenance issues in the foodservice mar- ket: lime scale. A problem caused by hard water, lime scale reduces the efficiency of equipment and damages components, lead- ing to an increase in service and costs. TAC reduces lime scale by 96-98 percent to ensure operations have fewer maintenance FOR FOODSERVICE NEEDS, WASSERSTROM FULLY PROVIDES By Nathan Wasserstrom, Founder N.

THE EZ GRIP FRY BASKET: GRAB IT, GRIP IT, LOVE IT Unlike many kitchen hazards that are eas- ily visible, ergonomic hazards impact workers over time and are not immediate- ly recognized as harmful. If you've ever slung fried food as a part of your job, then you know how much of a toll a food-laden basket can take on the wrist or forearm. A load of fries in a basket might only weigh 5 lbs.; however, the force on the hand can be 15 to 18 lbs. due to handle length and the distance the hand is from the center of gravity of the basket. The current flat han- dle design of most fry baskets makes them awkward to hold, especially when filled. Turning the basket to dump its contents is not as easy as it should be, and over time the user feels unnecessary fatigue. FMP's new EZ Grip Fry basket handle is an innovation in kitchen ergonomics. The vinyl-coated handle is designed to better fit the natural shape of the hand when gripping. This physiological differ- ence means less "squeezing," which translates to reduced stress on the hand, wrist and forearm. The improved grip also provides better leverage when turning the basket to dump its contents. The FMP line of fry baskets includes the EZ Grip basket, which is a regular fry basket with a vinyl-coated EZ Grip han- dle, and the EZ Grip Plus, which, along with the innovative handle, comes with a patented corner reinforcement and a dou- ble front hook. These features add signif- icant durability to the EZ Grip Plus and allow the man- ufacturer to offer a two year guarantee on the life of the basket. Stop by the FMP booth #3822 and feel for yourself how comfortable a fry basket handle can be. We're confident that once you grab one and give it a good grip, you'll love it.

MAVEA AIMS TO BE INDUSTRY STANDARD SEE WHAT'S NEW AT US REFRIGERATION Drawers are now available on all under- counter and work-tops, salad prep tables, mega top tables and pizza prep tables for the Value Series. These models can be ordered with many different configurations with a combination of drawers and doors, or if you decide later that you need draw- ers in place of the door, that is possible too! The doors are interchangeable with the drawers. The door hinges and drawer guides just 'snap' into pre-engineered slots, making a change from doors to drawers a snap! Deciding between wire shelves or bak- ing sheet pan racks for your reach-ins is no longer an option with our Value Series models. You can now use either wire shelves or full size baking pans (or steam pans) without changing the guides on all of our Upright Refrigerators and Freezers— Another innovation by US Refrigeration to give the consumer more versatility! US Refrigeration is seeking new deal- ers and distributors to represent this new line of equipment. Please contact the com- pany's national sales office at 888-556- 2112 for more details. If you are interested in purchasing their products, please visit www.us-refrig.com. Nothing works smarter, harder or longer for you than us! For more information, visit booth #1080 at NAFEM. After the show, visit www.us- refrig.com, call 888-556-2112 or email mark.winters@us-refrig.com.
