Warewasher manufacturer Winterhalter has signed up to exhibit at next year’s Hotelympia, showcasing its latest launches including passthrough hood machines, utensil washers and high volume conveyor washer systems.
During the exhibition on 5-8 March at London’s ExCel, will display the UC undercounter range, with its hybrid integral RO system,
Stand 1320 will also feature Winterhalter’s latest range of cleaning chemicals, including menu-specific formulas to tackle problems associated with, for example, protein, tannin or starch.
The key feature on the new PT and UF models is said to be connectivity, using Winterhalter’s Connected Wash technology. It allows each machine to be monitored from anywhere in the world, using an app or portal on a computer, tablet or smartphone. It can highlight good or bad practices, issuing alerts if the machine is not operating correctly and offering advice on cost savings.
Connected Wash can also help deliver a 100% first-time-fix rate in the event of breakdown, since the data it provides should enable the engineer to bring the right equipment to do the job. Furthermore, the data can warn of a potential component failure before it happens, so the engineer can fix or replace it before it breaks down.
Another feature on show is the new PT’s enhanced energy management system. This is designed to minimise energy use while focusing power where it’s needed – for example, to ensure water is always hot in the wash tank.
Winterhalter’s latest MT machines have a rinse system that are claimed to reduce water consumption by 15 to 20%. They also have a new heat pump option, which uses ClimatePlus technology to trap hot air and vapour, and recycle it to heat the cold water supply, which should reduce energy consumption and pump cool, dry air into the wash area.
