TONDA is the display case for home-made gelato in which gelato makers across the whole world cherish and promote their art.TONDA perfectly preserves the gelato and displays it, creating a thrill. It offers ergonomics and comfort with optimum inclination and rotation of flavours towards the operator and protects the environment thanks to its choice of materials and energy savings. To give this project form and technology, the IFI R&D department has worked with a designer with refined experimental attributes:
TONDA is available in a single model – display case diameter 1356 mm (53,38”) with a 1500 mm or 1350 mm (59,05” or 53,14”) base, or a round base and in 12, 15 and 18 pan versions. The basic structure is made of tubular steel, epoxy powder painted at 356°F. The display surface moulded in AISI 304 polished stainless steel has been designed to hold 12/15/18 trapezoidal gelato pans. There are LED lights at the sides of the display case: these are highly efficient, produce minimal heat and consume little energy. The central flavours holder has been lowered so you can see the gelato and the flavour cards more clearly. The refrigeration system is ventilated and has a radial evaporator to guarantee completely uniform temperatures inside the pans.
The working temperature of the gelato display case is around 6.8°F to 0.4°F, though this can be lowered to -7.6°F for supercooling. TONDA has been tested in a climatic chamber at 95°F with 60% RH. A tropicalised version is also available: remote condenser unit tested at 109.4°F. Tonda is CE certified for Europe, ETL for
North America and GOST Standard for Russia
TONDA individual portions may also hold from a minimum of 29 to a maximum of 199 small glasses, in which case the central flavours holder can be replaced with a tray. This accessory item (stainless steel tray with methacrylate tray) is useful especially during the low season to reduce the quantity of gelato on display: the flavours most popular with customers can be displayed alongside the individual portions, which remain popular regardless of the season. The display case can also hold pans with accessories for sticks for maximum versatility and adaptability to different settings. The accessory is made of opaque perforated Plexiglass and is always used in the standard 5-litre trapezoidal pan. At the centre of the display case you can insert chrome or neutral flavour cards or an accessory for the individual portions.
Circular movement of the ice cream containers resulting in uniform temperature.
TONDA is also available in the “4 seasons” version. By activating the switch button, the display case will automatically change from the gelato function (-6.8°F/- 0.4°F) to the pastry function (+35.6°F/+46.4°F with 60/70% relative humidity), and vice versa. It is also necessary to replace the gelato pans with stainless steel trays, possibly equipped with plexiglass accessories (trays and accessories optional, see technical manual).
The TN (Normal Temperature) version of Tonda is two display cases in one: simply operate the control panel to switch from pastry (+37.4°F, 70% RH) to praline (+57.2°F, 45% RH MAX).TONDA Pastry/Praline can be fitted with AISI 304 stainless steel trays and methacrylate accessories for storing and displaying up to a maximum of 198 helpings of small pastries, cakes and individual portions in appropriate containers. Tonda’s ideal technical function and display features are combined to create an arrangement of products displayed to their full aesthetic potential In the sophisticated praline sector, the praline version of Tonda can be put to excellent use. The 18/10 stainless steel trays and methacrylate accessories can hold more than 600 chocolates in compositions that emphasize products that combine the good taste and formal creativity of refined chocolate making.
