After previews across Europe, Hobart’s new Two-Level Washer is now available in the UK.
The machine is designed to save time, energy, water and space while doubling the capacity and productivity of a conventional hood-type, by way of an additional washing chamber.
With space at a premium in modern kitchens, the machine’s two wash chambers offer flexibility. At peak times, for instance, a utensil wash programme can take care of heavily soiled pots, pans and cutlery in the lower compartment, while up to three racks of dishes can be washed on a separate programme in the upper level.
The specially designed utensil wash programme is also said to eliminate the requirement for manual pre-treatment of heavily soiled ware in a separate sink, the space for which is often not available in smaller sites.
Though the machine’s capacity may be double that of a conventional hood-type, the water and detergent usage is designed to remains the same.
The Two-Level Washer’s water consumption is monitored constantly via Hobart’s ‘senso-active resource management’ function. For low amounts of soil, water consumption should remain low; when it detects increased levels of soil, it increases water levels, claimed to help reduce operating costs by 20% when compared to a conventional machine.
The machine’s ‘Genius-X² Fine Filter System’ cleans soiled water in three steps, reducing detergent consumption by up to 35%. Coarse soil and food waste are collected in the strainer basket, preventing them from reaching the tank.
Tim Bender, sales director, Hobart Equipment Division commented: “Some 4 years in research and development, the Two-Level Washer demonstrates Hobart’s superior innovation prowess in action. The machine is not only the decade’s most important launch, it represents the future of warewashing – the very embodiment of doing more with less.”
Hobart will be staging an exclusive weeklong open house at its Peterborough HQ (30 September-4 Oct) enabling dealers and consultants to get to grips with the latest machine. Each day between 10am-2pm, the company will be staging a series of demos of the new Two-Level Washer, as well as introducing new warewash and cooking innovations. Lunch is also provided.
