The EDA-2 and EDA-3 feature a pressure and pressureless compartment cooker with electric steam boiler. The cooker is constructed of all-welded satin finish stainless steel, type 304. The doors have a removable inner liner of aluminum plate with full perimeter gasket seal, an outer liner of one-piece all-welded stainless steel, and a wheel-and-screw closing mechanism. The doors, with a clear opening of 10-1/4” x 26-3/8”, latch upon closing and open 15° upon latch release.
The lower compartment is a pressure cooker only and operates at a maximum pressure of 6 psi (41kPa). The upper compartment is either a pressureless free-venting cooker or a pressure cooker operating at a maximum of 6 psi (41kPa), as selected by the operator. The control housing is constructed of stainless steel with a full-access removable panel. Each compartment has independent automatic timer controls with visual and audible signals. In the lower compartment and the pressure mode of the upper compartment, the controls automatically shut off and exhaust the incoming steam, drain the condensate from the compartment and sound a continuous signal until turned off manually. In the pressureless mode of the upper compartment, the controls include a mode selector switch and a steam flow cut-off when the door is opened.
Each compartment is provided with universal pan supports. Each optional sliding shelf will support two full size steam pans.
The compartment cooker is mounted on a cabinet base with full perimeter angle frame, reinforced counter and boiler mountings, electric boiler with controls which include the following as standard: water treatment system, automatic water level control, pressure gauge, water gauge glass, pressure control with secondary safety pressure control, air vent, safety relief valve, CSD-1 boiler controls, automatic boiler blow down, nickel plating, and split water line. Thermostatically controlled cold water automatically condensates exhausted steam into water before releasing it to the drain. The cabinet is constructed of all stainless steel #4 finish type 304, hinged doors and 6” (152mm) stainless steel legs fitted with 4 adjustable flanged feet for securing to the floor.
