Misa brings about the age of innovation


Innovation in the Ho.re.ca industry is lead by Misa, the company that has always been committed to researching and developing state-of-the-art ergonomic solutions. Misa presents a revised portfolio aimed at rationalising space, including a corner cold room and a mini cold room with a 20 cm module. The former is available in a number of different configurations adapting to any type of environment and features internal and external-angle fronts. Similarly the new mini cold room with 20 cm modules provides the same performance level as the 40m version, while using less space and is also available in 26 different sizes.

The new semi-recessed doors also contribute to the space-saving quality of these solutions, through the reduction in depth by 20mm of external door panels from 60mm to 40mm for positive temperature and from 120mm to 100 mm for negative temperature. The new door fame can be adjusted vertically and horizontally to ensure an excellent seal between the frame gasket and insulated panels.

Misa also revolutionises cold room floors. P350 is now fitted with a non-slip surface and ensures more efficient thermal insulation and a higher weight loading capacity. The upgraded PLUS monobloc unit offers 28% more cooling capacity while occupying the same space as the previous model.

Energy conservation is another lead concept in the Misa range, thanks to Misa Silent and the new static converter. Ideal for residential areas, Misa Silent guarantees a dramatic reduction in sound pollution. While the static converter is an electronic device for the optimisation of the systems’ "power quality". It features numerous advantages, including: 30% reduction of the committed power capacity, reduction of electrical input, suppression of electromagnetic noise and the parallel management of multiple same-capacity packs with only one converter, which can also be retrofitted.   

From large to small areas, innovation never stops with Misa’s technology.

More value to energy: Eptablue at the GDO and Retail Forum for Energy & Maintenance


Epta took part in the second edition of the GDO and Retail Forum – Energy & Maintenance, organised by IRI (International Research Institute) and held in Milan. Making the most of the store, between cost saving and high performance: this was the core topic of the conference, in which William Pagani, International Sales & Marketing Director at Epta and Alvise Case, Energy Manager at Costan, were lead figures.  

The meeting offered the opportunity to illustrate how refrigeration, air-conditioning and heating systems can be integrated. In this connection the innovative EptaBlue Waterloop technology was presented to a very interested audience. This dramatic solution, in line with F-Gas regulations, provides a dramatic reduction in CO2 emissions and converts existing store cabinets from remote to plug-in using plug&play connections to a water loop system to create remarkable advantages: a 43% decrease in the refrigeration system’s TEWI and a 75% reduction in the refrigerant gas charge. EptaBlue became a key topic for this round table discussion and was also referenced in the presentations of other companies specialising in components compatible with this exclusive system.

Innovation and versatility in application: this is Epta’s recipe to support retailing success; offering high performance solutions and a 100% dependable remote management service to monitor all systems, improve their performance and create savings up to 20% on energy consumption.
