Simpli-Flex ice cream cone dispensers from the Modular Dispensing Systems Division of Tomlinson Industries organize and dispense cake, waffle, and sugar cones with a 1-3/8” to 3-3/8” cone lip diameter. Simpli-Flex cone dispensers are self-adjusting to hold cones snugly, yet gently enough to prevent breakage and waste, and protect cones from contamination and moisture, keeping cones fresh longer.

Manufactured of FDA-approved materials, these dispensers are available in heavy-duty, polished stainless steel or tough gray tinted plastic. They are NSF (National Science Foundation) listed and all components are dishwasher safe.

A complete line of mounting accessories is available from Modular, including the popular Z-stand and countertop rotary stand. Modular also offers dispensers for cups, domed and flat lids, and condiments, as well as napkin dispensers for countertop, tabletop, and in-counter mounting.

Refcon has developed EnergyPak, an integrated foodservice facility refrigeration, air conditioning, domestic hot water, and space heating system. Refcon has several patents pending for its EnergyPak module and total EnergyPak system, which consolidate foodservice refrigeration, heating, and air conditioning into a single, unified system and capture up to 90 percent of the waste heat as usable energy. EnergyPak can deliver as many as 16 LEED certification credits.

EnergyPak can increase refrigeration and air conditioning system efficiency by as much as 45 percent and delivers as much as an 80 percent reduction in overall refrigerant charge. Companies can expect to achieve a payback of less than 2.5 years with this system, according to Refcon.

EnergyPak’s consolidation reduces the number of system components and complexity, increasing system reliability. The system also saves space with its compact design.

As part of the their EnergyPak total system offering, Refcon can provide a full range of EnergyPak project support services throughout facility design, construction, commissioning, and grand opening, as well as ongoing monitoring services afterwards.

VKF Renzel USA Corp.’s line of PVC shelf dividers are custom made-to-order to prevent wasted shelf space, while the company’s sign holders can be used in various ways such as:

• Snapping into a C-channel of gondola shelving
• Sliding into a price label holder
• Using in a sign clip

The sign holders can be produced in any size desired and there are also three standard sizes. There is also a sign holder with a metal clip that is similar to the sign holder with the significant difference that the metal clip on the back snaps securely into any C-channel of gondola shelving. For horizontal panels, there is a sign holder with two metal clips that vary in size, the first designed for shelving ¼”-3/8” thick and the second for shelving 3/8”-1” thick. The sign holder easily attaches to glass or wood shelving by sliding the two metal clamps onto the shelf edge. Renzel also makes a PVC pocket for any shelf set-up that work well in sign clips.
