EZ-Clean Gasket

Keeping traditional PVC gaskets clean and functional demands a never-ending battle. Dirt and mold hide in tight places. Reaching them requires awkward solutions involving paper towels and butter knives. Cleaning this way is a major hassle and only marginally effective. And it’s not the way it has to be.

That’s why Traulsen created the EZ-Clean Gasket for its hot and cold units. Made of durable, sanitizer-resistant Santoprene®,  our gasket makes it easier for your team to ensure food quality and safety. The EZ-Clean Gasket can be removed and reinstalled several times without being compromised. By adding the EZ-Clean Gasket to your Traulsen unit, you can: 

  • Support Sanitation Efforts:
    The EZ-Clean Gasket features a proprietary one-fold or “bellow” design, which makes it simple to eliminate dirt and mold.
  • Save Time and Effort:
    Santoprene material enables quick cleaning with just the use of sanitizer and a washcloth. No additional tools required.
  • Reduce Replacement Costs:
    Lab testing indicates a 50% life span increase for Santoprene over standard PVC gaskets, as cleaners often make PVC brittle.
bare tube coil

Bare-Tube Coil

Pop quiz: When was the last time your condenser was cleaned? If you don’t know, you’re far from alone – but you might be in need of a service call to prevent costly repairs, since dirty coils are a leading contributor to compressor failure.

Fortunately, Traulsen is helping you extend the life of your compressor by introducing the Bare-Tube Coil. Laboratory research indicates that, under typical commercial conditions, you might never have to clean this condenser. Ever.

By adding the Bare-Tube Coil to your unit, you can: 

  • Enjoy Ease of Maintenance:
    Without fins, dust and dirt have virtually no surface area to cling to, making regular coil cleanings unnecessary.
  • Preserve Factory Performance:
    Compressors work harder when dirty condenser coils inhibit airflow. The Bare-Tube Coil permits ample airflow passage into the condenser, and therefore extends your compressor’s life.
  • Save Money:
    Finned coils that aren’t cleaned can become blocked and less efficient. Since a Bare-Tube Coil doesn’t become blocked, it comparatively saves enough energy to pay for itself within two years of use (based on $.15/kWh).  
EZ-Open Foot Pedal

EZ-Open Foot Pedal

Moving food from the oven to your temperature-holding cabinets used to be tricky. One hand struggled to balance a heavy tray, the other hand pried open the unit, and then you hoped the door wouldn’t close on you before you finished. You wanted something better, so Traulsen developed the EZ-Open Foot Pedal.

Ergonomically positioned close to the door and offset from the floor, the EZ-Open Foot Pedal enables you to open your cabinet by simply pressing a lever with the ball of your foot. By adding the EZ-Open Foot Pedal to your cabinet, you can:

  • Reduce Spills:
    Product can be secured with both hands, minimizing potential contact with a moving door.
  • Support Sanitation Efforts:
    Fewer spills reduce the possibility of cross-contamination.
  • Enjoy Hands-Free Access:
    The EZ-Open Foot Pedal complements Traulsen’s standard stay-open door feature.
EZ-Change Interiors

EZ-Change Interiors

You said that reconfiguring the shelves in your cabinet shouldn’t be an ordeal, and we agreed. You said that you should be able to move shelves quickly and without tools, and we thought you were exactly right. You said you also wanted all components of a new configuration system to be easy to clean and dishwasher-safe, and we thought this was brilliant, so we created EZ-Change Interiors.

With EZ-Change Interiors, pilasters can easily be placed over your unit’s side-mounted shoulder screws and moved into place by hand—no tools required. The 16-gauge stainless steel tray slides simply drop into labeled grooves to ensure proper alignment.

By adding the EZ-Change Interiors to your unit, you can:

  • Enjoy Timesaving Versatility:
    Quick, no-tools reconfiguration helps you create the space you need, when you need it.
  • Minimize Spills:
    EZ-Change tray slides hold up to 75 pounds without bending. For big jobs, consider our heavy-duty tray slides that support up to 150 pounds of product.
  • Support Sanitation Efforts:
    All pilasters are dishwasher-safe.

EZ-Change Interiors arrive factory-installed in R- and A-Series cabinets. On G-Series equipment, this option will be packaged for customer installation.
