The Grilling

Hubbard Products' commercial director gets a grilling on the Hubbard Econ-O-Pack

What is your product and what does it do?

Hubbard Econ-O-Pack is an innovative approach to utilising recycled waste energy from the refrigeration and chilling processes used in the meat trades sector. When combined with ECA-approved energy-efficient Cooling Systems, the Econ-O-Mate heat recovery module provides energy and tax-efficient cooling with the added benefit of reduced water heating costs, giving substantial long-term energy savings. By reclaiming heat created in the refrigeration process, water can be heated to temperatures in excess of 50C for use on-site.

Who is it aimed at?

Manufacturers and retailers that use cooling equipment for cooling, chilling or freezing, who wish to reduce their carbon footprint and save money. The system is particularly aimed at the meat processing sector where hot water is required for cleaning and washing.

How will it improve a business?

Econ-O-Pack delivers cost savings on a wide range of levels; it reduces the need to generate heat and lowers a site's carbon footprint in an eco-friendly and economically viable way. It also reduces system wear and tear, as well as physical carbon emissions created by service engineers travelling to and from locations. Also, when combined with any Hubbard ECA approved system, businesses may claim 100% capital allowance against their tax bill.

How much does the product cost?

The Econ-O-Pack System starts from just 1,100 (ex VAT) and we estimate it will take just two years to recover the initial cost of the unit. Hubbard offers a full survey and installation service.

Why should people spend their cash with you?

As the first to qualify conditioning and cooling equipment for the Carbon Trust's Energy Technology List, we aim to make Hubbard the only realistic choice for anyone specifying energy- efficient coolers or conditioners.
