Master-Bilt’s Glycol Parallel Rack System

August 2, 2017 | No Comments »

Master-Bilt’s Glycol Parallel Rack System has multiple compressors that only run when necessary, maximizing efficiency and saving on energy costs. When the system determines that another compressor is needed to handle higher workload, another compressor kicks in. Many times, only one compressor is needed for off-peak hours, while still maintaining proper food safe temperatures for all your refrigeration equipment. When performance is needed during peak hours, more compressors turn on to keep up with the demand for extra cooling capacity.

The use of ethylene glycol is circulated through a loop, typically copper or ABS piping, to cool refrigeration equipment. Return lines carry heated glycol from each piece of equipment back to the remotely mounted rack system for re-cooling.

Along with energy savings, is a reduced refrigerant charge which is completely contained within the wall of the parallel rack system. This means that only the chilled glycol is distributed to the kitchen. Less refrigerant and piping mean less chance of refrigerant leaks. Further, ethylene glycol is nontoxic and deemed a “greener” more environmentally friendly solution.

The most unique feature of the Master-Bilt Glycol System is its floating heat pressure technology that lowers the energy consumption of the refrigeration system by as much as 25%. The system also uses full digital controls vs. mechanical controls in competitive equipment. These state-of-the-art digital controls provide greater precision, diagnostics, data logging and monitoring capability.

The Fly-Bye Floor Drain Trap Seal by Bar Maid

July 31, 2017 | No Comments »

Protecting your kitchen from harmful invaders like bacteria, viruses, flies, and cockroaches is an essential priority of any kitchen. Should these invaders find their way into your kitchen, they could prove to be not only a nuisance, but harm the food safety of your kitchen.

Bar Maid’s new Floor Drain Trap Seal helps protect your kitchen from these invaders that tend to thrive in damp environments like a floor drain. The patented one-way valve from Bar Maid doesn’t allow for outside invaders, and allows water and solids to flow down the drain.

The Fly-Bye Floor Drain Trap Seal also prevents odors and sewer gases from entering your kitchen through the drain. It is very simple to install, essentially making your drains maintenance free.

The reversing airflow of unprotected floor drains can also allow the aerosolization of pathogens and emission of not only foul odors, but also harmful and potentially flammable gases. The FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal acts as a vapor barrier to help prevent gases such as methane, hydrogen sulfide, and radon from infiltrating the kitchen, improving air quality.

Running a successful kitchen keeps you busy enough! You won’t have to worry about your drains by using Bar Maid’s Fly-Bye Floor Drain Trap Seal!


  • Installs quickly and easily in minutes
  • Makes drains virtually maintenance free
  • Stops fruit flies and cockroaches from escaping
  • Keeps bacteria, nasty smells and gases in the drain
  • Stops the need for adding primers and fresh water
  • Does not impede flow rate
  • Pesticide-free
  • Patented 3-part design allows fluid to flow down, but nothing to come back up
