Hobart has set out its stall by declaring that its newly-launched FX undercounter and GX glasswasher machines are its most innovative yet.
The latest machines offer customers a potential 30% reduction in operational costs versus existing Hobart models, while the introduction of a host of practical features is designed to add further value to the range.
New quirks include an “intelligent” integrated soil sensor that can adjust the rinse consumption depending on soil levels. The system promises sparkling results but with significantly less consumption of chemicals and water.
Two litres per cycle is enough for the perfect finish, according to the Peterborough-based company. It quotes figures that show just one machine can reduce the C02 emissions of an operation by more than 1,000 kg in a year based on an average of 600g emission of CO2 per kWh currently in Germany.
It also claims that switching to Hobart’s FX to wash 50 cycles per day, 365 days a year, could save 1,700 kWh of energy, 20,000 litres of water and 65 litres of chemicals, compared with a benchmark machine using 3 I/cycle.
Tim Bender, UK sales director for warewashing at Hobart UK, said: “The original FX and GX series were developed for high capacity operations with a focus on ease of use, consistency and keeping costs low. The brand new series retains these core elements and successfully builds on them, resulting in the most advanced, intelligent, energy efficient dishwashers ever created.”
Operators can save further time and energy and improve kitchen efficiency with the brand new optional ‘2 in 1’ racking system, which doubles the machine’s capacity allowing for larger loads when most needed.
Additionally, the machines’ functionality can now be controlled at the touch of a single button. The display lights up automatically when it detects a hand approaching the panel and can be fully customised for ease-of-use to include messages with clear text or symbols.
