ASTM F2141 - 07(2019)

Standard Test Method for Performance of Self-Serve Hot Deli Cases

Status : Current   Published : May 2019



1.1 This test method evaluates the energy consumption and performance of self-serve hot deli cases. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a deli case and understand its energy consumption and performance.

1.2 This test method is applicable to electric, fully open or partially open, hot deli cases that have been designed to hold and merchandise prepackaged hot food. For staff-serve hot deli cases, refer to Test Method F2472.

1.3 The deli case can be evaluated with respect to the following (where applicable):

1.3.1 Energy input rate (10.2),

1.3.2 Energy and temperature at the minimum setting (10.3),

1.3.3 Energy and temperature at the maximum setting (10.3),

1.3.4 Energy and temperature at the manufacturer's recommended setting (10.3),

1.3.5 Holding capacity (10.4),

1.3.6 Holding temperature calibration (10.4),

1.3.7 Preheat energy rate (10.5),

1.3.8 Idle energy rate (10.6), and

1.3.9 Holding energy rate (10.7).

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
