CHICAGO, IL (September 14, 2015) –Cornelius proudly presents Viper Elite™ Carbon, the latest in frozen beverage dispensing. It expertly combines brilliant design, superior performance and world-class quality that you can rely on.

Building on nearly 50 years of experience, Viper Elite is the most reliable FCB unit on the market.  At Cornelius we pride ourselves on providing the best quality by actively completing continuous quality improvements to ensure we keep our customers up and running! With Viper Elite we have built on our strong platform by increasing life expectancy on some of the components as well as adding in some upgrades such as the new pressure transducer. This transducer provides drink flexibility, ensuring our customers are able to perform as syrups change in the future. With Viper Elite Carbon, we’ve given Viper Elite a styling update featuring contemporary design elements, such as rounded corners, combined with premium materials and finishes giving this category a timeless look.  Smooth continuous surfaces provide an enhanced cleaning experience making the unit easier to wipe down and maintain.

Alan Duncan, President of Key accounts for Cornelius, had the following to say about the Viper Elite Carbon, “It is easy to see why retailers and consumers are attracted by the updated design of Viper Elite Carbon. Our research shows that 81% of FCB sales are driven by impulse purchases.  Viper Elite captivates consumers encouraging them to dispense only the best in frozen beverages.  Our engineers have taken the Elite series to a new level of reliability and uptime, making sure our customers can maximize profits.”

Jeremy Martin, VP of National Accounts and Distribution for Cornelius, added, “Viper Elite Carbon marries the store of the future design language with the “Best In Class” quality designs of Viper Elite to create the most visually striking and most reliable Frozen Carbonated Beverage unit on the market. The unit creates a significantly improved consumer experience in one of the most profitable, and growing, categories for convenience retailers and manages uptime through patented “Intelligent Defrost” and premium reliability”.
