Hobart claims to have “raised the bar” in terms of glass and cutlery washing by introducing its Hydroline ROI-500 reverse osmosis system on select commercial machines.
It insists the technology produces perfect, streak-free glassware and cutlery, while delivering protection against limescale and removing minerals from the water to save 30% on chemical usage versus previous offerings.
The system is designed for operation on the company’s GX/GXP glasswashers and FX/FXP undercounter dishwashers.
Tim Bender, sales director for warewashing at Hobart , says the most obvious benefit of the system is that it frees kitchen staff up from having to spend time hand polishing glass and tableware items.
He called it a “real breakthrough” in terms of glassware and cutlery cleaning due to the practical and financial benefits of the system.
“This system purifies the water and so removes all the harmful minerals, meaning the machine will last longer and operate more efficiently. It also has a low operational cost compared with traditional systems which use a demineralisation cartridge,” said Bender.
The Hydroline RO-I 500 system is powered and controlled by the warewasher, negating the need for a separate power supply. This allows the water consumption rate and filter replacement situation to be monitored and displayed on the machine control panel.
