Equipment distributor Nelson has elaborated on its partnership with Smeg by revealing the role it will play in establishing the Italian manufacturer’s warewashing range in the UK.
Nelson was confirmed as the sole distributor earlier this year and confirmed this week that it will sell, install and maintain the Smeg brand alongside its own ranges.
Managing director, John Nelson, said: “I feel confident that Smeg has a great deal to offer this market and, with its many unique, ergonomic and energy saving features, it looks set to compete very favourably at the highest level.”
Smeg insists its machines will be able to compete at both a performance and energy saving level, and it says it has secured several, important patents to ensure this is the case.
The Greenline CWC630DHE Pass Through will be the first model available to the market and it features a two stage, heat regeneration capability.
The system condenses steam produced during the rinse cycle, uses it to raise the incoming water temperature by 10°C and then harnesses the heat from waste water to heat the freshly drawn water by approximately 20°C.
Smeg also claims that as the Greenline uses less water than most other similar machines — “22 litres compared to around 35 litres” — there is less to heat, which consequently reduces energy consumption.
