Hubbard Systems is to launch its first Comenda warewasher update since it took over the supply of the Ali Group brand from now-defunct Dawson Food Service Equipment earlier this year.
The latest version of Comenda’s F4EHR front loader dishwasher is claimed to combine advanced features with a budget-friendly price. While its footprint is the same as the smaller F3E units, it also has an extra high door, with 400mm clearance, so it can accept bigger dishes and larger loads.
With list prices starting at £4,007, the F4EHR is suitable for those looking for a reliable undercounter machine on a budget. Manufactured by Comenda in Italy, it is marketed in the UK by Hubbard Systems, which backs the machines with a customer support package.
The F4EHR accepts 500mm x 500mm racks and has a theoretical capacity of up to 60 racks per hour. The QHS (Quick Heating System) is said to cut heat up times and optimise water consumption, while the Dynamic filter system should ensure that wash water is kept clean and dishes are washed efficiently.
Four wash cycles are included, from light to heavy soiling. For lightly soiled dishes, the Eco wash cycle is said to clean hygienically whilst saving on water, energy and chemical consumption. At the other end of the scale, the fourth cycle completely drains the tank water at the end of the wash.
The F4EHR is sold with a 24 month parts and labour warranty.
