Chemical dispensing and dosing solution specialist Hydro Systems has introduced DMx, a warewash dispenser that is designed to enhance food safety compliance in commercial kitchens and restaurants.
Featuring secure data transmission via Hydro Connect, a cloud-based Internet of Things platform, DMx should prevent unauthorised users from accessing the dispenser and provides operational data to help the facility run more efficiently.
Hydro Systems global product manager John Goetz said: “At a time when cleanliness is more important than ever, foodservice establishments are looking for ways to enhance consumer confidence and visibility into their own operations.
“The DMx ensures food safety compliance with temperature sensing capabilities inside the wash tank and rinse lines, as well as enhanced real-time reporting through Hydro Connect. This technology is the future in smart dosing and food safety for all types and sizes of kitchens.”
With Hydro Connect, DMx is aimed at providing increased visibility of data on productivity, chemical usage and costs. It also features maintenance alarms to remind staff when it’s time to de-lime the dish machine, change the tank water or change a squeeze tube. This should prevent damage to dish machinery, avoid rewashes and reduce the chance of unclean dishes reaching customers.
Available in two- and three-pump models, the DMx supports both solid and liquid chemical formulations and can work on most high or low temperature door, conveyer and flight-style machines. A re-designed motor drive and pump race should offer reliability. Additionally, the dispenser is certified by various global standards, including Electrical Testing Laboratories (ETL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and Conformitè Europëenne (CE).
DMx should be installed and set up with minimal time, training or prior experience, thanks to the multi-lingual Hydro Connect Mobile Application. It also features pre-wired power, signal and conductivity cabling to save operators time and money.
Goetz added: “With advanced features and added safety measures, kitchens can rely on DMx to effectively clean dishware with every use. This in turn supports guest satisfaction and the bottom line.”
