Traulsen Introduces New Milk Cooler with Top-Mounted Refrigeration and Forced-Air Design

Fort Worth, TEXAS – January 27, 2014 – Traulsen, a leader in the design and manufacture of premium commercial refrigeration equipment, announced today the launch of the Traulsen Milk Cooler, featuring a top-mounted refrigeration system and forced-air design.

“We’re constantly talking with K-12 customers about the challenges they’re facing in the kitchen, so we can determine how and where we can help,” said John Davis, director of engineering and marketing for Traulsen. “The Traulsen Milk Cooler is an excellent example of what happens when you take time to listen to customers. What we heard was a need for a reliable, longer-lasting milk cabinet that provides better access for younger students. So we set out to design a milk cooler that features Traulsen’s quality and reliability, and that is easier to use and maintain.”

Traulsen’s research uncovered multiple areas of concern for K-12 foodservice personnel whose operations include milk coolers including usable height and gasket life preservation.

By placing the milk cooler’s refrigeration on top of the unit, Traulsen was able to drop the cabinet closer to the ground. Traulsen believes its new milk cooler has the lowest loading height in the industry, which means the cartons of milk/beverages are more accessible for younger children.

The Traulsen Milk Cooler also has a sliding front-door design that helps protect the EZ-Clean Santoprene® gasket from normal wear and tear.

Manufactured with a 100 percent stainless steel cabinet, reinforced exterior bottom, and heavy-duty dunnage racks, Traulsen’s new milk cooler comes with a three-year warranty for parts and labor, with an additional two years for the compressor.
