McDonalds Bulk Program
Combined bulk CO2 and syrup system for beverage dispensing.
Both systems are permanently installed inside the restaurant and integral to the beverage supply system. Tanks are refilled from outside without the need to enter the resturant or interrupt operations.
- The CO2 system uses the Carbo-Max® 450, 750 or 1000 series tanks
The bulk syrup system consists of two or more bulk tanks permanently installed inside the restaurant. Each tank hold 75 gallons (300 liters for the international system) of beverage syrup and replaces bag-in-a-box and other packages.
Syrup is withdrawn from a tank and fed to the beverage machines upon demand. When one tank is empty the system automatically switches to the next full tank while the empty tank is sanitized by the automated Clean-in-Place panel and made ready for its next fill.
Filling the syrup tank from the truck takes less than ten minutes and is part of the store's regular delivery service.
The bulk syrup system is NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) listed under standard number 18. The system includes all hoses and the Clean-in-Place panel for tank sanitizing.
Also available as a portable model for restaurants in which tanks must be moved to receive syrup delivery.
System is available internationally in accordance with host country legislation and approvals.
