Why Is Catering Equipment Maintenance Important?
Lack of maintenance can be the main cause of catering equipment breaking down. By keeping your equipment clean, not only will it benefit your organisation for food hygiene reasons and the prevention of spreading bacteria that can lead to food poisoning, but it can also help prevent other issues such as breakdowns or a build-up of grease that could lead to fires.
Regular maintenance extends the lifespan of your equipment, giving businesses a maximum return on their investment and ensuring a good resale value if it is later sold. Having a maintenance and service plan can help your organisation avoid unexpected repair costs and avoid loss of production if equipment is broken and needs repair.
Providing your organisation with competitive maintenance and service plans, Abraxas can plan for any business from care homes, school trusts or other large entities with multiple sites. We have a plan for your company, no matter the size.
What Type of Equipment Can We Service?
Oven ranges, fryers, grills or combi ovens that are supplied by gas need regular maintenance to make certain that they’re operating safely. There are warning signs to look out for, such as a pilot light that blows out, or the presence of yellow or orange flames, instead of blue, which can be a sign of incomplete combustion. If you see these signs, then it’s time to call an engineer.
It is illegal for someone who isn’t Gas Safe registered to work on a gas appliance in a commercial kitchen, so to be sure you’re in good hands, call on one of our engineers at Abraxas for help and peace of mind.
Refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and grills, amongst others, are all electrical appliances in the standard commercial kitchen and frequent inspections should be a priority for all business owners to ensure safe working environments.
Fixed appliances should be inspected and tested at least every 12 months, whereas portable appliances should have a formal visual inspection more frequently. Planned preventative maintenance from Abraxas will take care of the hassle of recording and carrying out these inspections for your operation.
Ventilation and Extraction System Maintenance
A vital part of the catering equipment is the ventilation and extraction system. There are legal requirements in place to ensure the discharge of excess hot air, fumes of cooking and vapours safely in exchange for clean air and to help prevent the build-up of unwanted fumes, heat, smells and gasses, so it is essential that this equipment is regularly maintained.
We ensure that the legal requirements are met and help teams keep the whole system clean to prevent any risk of fire from built-up grease in air ducts.
Gas Safe- and FGas-registered
All our engineers are highly qualified to inspect equipment and check that components are compliant with all the regulations relevant to the different appliances. The team are friendly and polite and will work around you and your staff to ensure the minimum disruption to your operation.
