Vulcan 936RX - 36" Heavy Duty, Snap-Action Thermostatic Gas Griddle with Dual Ignition - 81,000 BTU

  • CAD Regular price $7,495.00

The Southbend 936RX is part of their "900RX" series of gas griddles. This is their heavy-duty series with mechanical snap-action thermostat controls, which gives precise temperature control from 200-500° Fahrenheit (+/- 15 °F to set point at idle).

Unlike Vulcan's MSA series, it has a dual ignition, so you can light this griddle with either an electric spark or manual ignition. And it also comes with a front manifold shut-off valve, which allows the thermostat set points to be preserved.

The 936RX has been designed to meet the needs of full-menu, high-volume casual dining and fast casual restaurants. It is built on a low-profile base that is compatible with kitchen equipment stands or refrigerated bases to optimize cooking height for the restaurant operator.

Standard thermostatic controls (sometimes known as modulating or throttling thermostatic controls) will keep the temperature within 30-40 degrees of the set point, and sometimes with a lagging response due to heavy loads of products, which can cause slower heat recoveries.

Vulcan's Snap-Action thermostatic controls will, on the other hand, control the temperature within 10-15 degrees from the set point, and ensure a faster recovery time, making these perfect for cooking items such as burgers and breakfast fare.
