As Australia’s leading beverage dispensing company, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. And as part of the global Hoshizaki group, environmental concerns are central to our beliefs.
Our new range of Lancer Soft Drink Superchillers were specifically engineered to meet our stringent environmental targets, and we have been delighted with the results.
So far sales of the new Lancer Soft Drink Superchiller S4E & S8E have resulted in reductions of over 6,000 tons of CO² emissions compared to the previous model.
That’s equivalent to approximately 1,500 cars off our roads!*
Our Lancer Soft Drink Superchillers deliver high volumes of carbonated soft drinks at high speed in the harshest ambient conditions.
They are installed at most Australian hotels, stadiums, cinemas and quick service restaurants for Coca-Cola, Schweppes, Hungry Jacks, Village Cinemas and Hoyts.
Our Superchillers are also exported to many markets including New Zealand, The Philippines, India, and South Africa.
The innovation and energy reduction of the Lancer Superchillers were just two of the elements which led to Lancer winning a 2011 Australian Business Award for Product Excellence.
“We’re extremely proud of our engineering team who worked intelligently with our key customers to come up with the design changes which led to this significant achievement” said our Managing Director, Joe Thorp.
It’s the same desire to improve performance and environmental impact that led us to develop the all new Lancer Ecco Heat Free Hot Water™ system.
We're delighted that this innovative product has been the recipient of a 2011 Australian Business Award for Best Eco-Friendly Product and a Manufacturers Monthly Endeavour Award for 2011 Australian Industrial Product of the Year.
Lancer Ecco Heat™ is an innovative system that captures the superheat waste from large air-conditioning or refrigeration systems and uses it to heat water.
“With a payback of less than 18 months it’s a terrific opportunity for businesses to reduce their hot water energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint” says Joe Thorp.
Lancer Ecco Heat™ is available nationally through Actrol.
