And now there is an energy efficient Vending Machine!
Vending Machine industry has been passing through the best revolutionary stage ever! The vending machine industry has designed and delivered huge and high electricity eating vending machines in its earlier stage but now the time has changed and so is the trend. And the leading cold drink and cold drink Vending Machine company Coca Cola has taken a step ahead towards developing sustainable Vending Machines.
The company has manufactured an energy efficient vending machine model A011 as a part of the Apollo energy-saving vending machine development project. The company has obviously put the Vending Machine into test in Japan.
What is this energy efficient Vending Machine?
To know what is this energy efficient vending machine is, first let’s get some idea on how a traditional machine consumes energy. In a traditional vending machine, electricity is supplied to cool down the temperature to keep the products cool. The machine then cool downs the temperature of the container and thus helps food stay fresh for longer time. The temperature in the machine would rise gradually if cooling was stopped for long periods of time, since only a portion of the products in the container were cooled in response to sales — the traditional machine’s effort to limit electricity consumed. However to overcome this issue, this all new vending machine from Coca-Cola cools all products at night time, which limits the machine’s rise in temperature, even after it stops using power for cooling for long periods of times.
Coca-Cola’s A011 vending machine also uses more vacuum insulation materials, so the machine is not affected as much by outside temperature. According to company source, they have made the doors more airtight to save energy and help provide cold products.
Features and Advantages
This awesome vending machine has some of the most stunning features such as it recharges during cheaper off-peak times, consumes less energy, helps food and snack stay fresh for longer time, has more airtight door system which helps internal temperature stay cooler for longer time. Thus, any Vending Machines Business owner who buys this machine, will have reasons to cheer!
While there may be many other features that are not listed here, this machine has some advantages biggest of which is energy saving. The machine has been developed to make people save energy and we will promote our save energy initiative with launch of this machine – said the company officials. The machine’s energy efficiency will also help company in achieving its target to cut energy usage by 15% in wake of Japan earthquake. The company will also bring down its electricity usage by around 15 percent this summer by turning off outdoor advertisements at more than 30 locations across Japan, shutting down some offices for a week. There are other plans as well to achieve our save energy target – said the company.
