Commercial Warewashing Types
Door-Type Machines: designed for small to medium size operations serving 50 to 100 people per meal. They can wash 810 to 1350 dishes per hour. Door-Type washers are equipped with revolving spray arms above and below the dishes. They have automatically timed wash, dwell and rinse cycles and doors slide upward for loading. For energy savings, chemical sanitizing rinse models are recommended over high temperature rinse models. Glass Washers are Door-Type machines which are ideal for bars and bistros because they double as small warewashers.
Rack Conveyor Washers: move racked dishes either by a chain or pawl. Pawl action uses a single rod to pull racks through. These units come in one-tank models for medium sized operations (serving 150 people per meal), and two-tank models for high volume operations (where space often restricts the use of a big belt-conveyor machine). Rack conveyors can handle 4500 to 5624 dishes per hour. The dish rack is conveyed through a spray pattern directed from upper and lower stationary spray arms at a prescribed GPM flow rate. After the rack has passed through the wash spray, it moves on to activate the fresh-water final rinse.
Flight-Type (Rackless Conveyor) Washers: large capacity Rackless Conveyors are also called Belt Conveyors and Flight-Type machines. They are manufactured for high volume operations catering to more than 1000 people per meal (washing 6750 to 20,000 dishes per hour). The belt conveyors have adjustable speeds and are ideally suited for cafeteria-type operations with heavy tray traffic.
Carousel (Circular Conveyor) Systems: offers the most complete, customized machine for the scullery. Integral scrapping, loading and unloading stations provide the space for high-volume applications while allowing flexibility of labor for non-peak times.
Tray Accumulators: specifically designed to convey trays either on a conventional flat belt conveyor or as “Tray Accumulators” which use the same amount of space as a flat belt conveyor system, yet handle five times as many trays by utilizing the vertical space above the belt. Tray Accumulators are customizable to fit the space requirements of any operation.
Pot, Pan And Utensil Washers: kitchen workhorses, tailor-made for the messy, bulky ware it is designed to clean. Special features offer increased clearance and powerful wash patterns via revolving wash arms. Stainless steel jets spray turbulence to penetrate baked on food and grease and soften food residue. A combination of high pressure and hot water effectively sanitizes all types of ware, including sheet pans and mixing bowls.
