Swedish warewasher firm Wexiödisk is to introduce its two latest innovations to the UK market for the first time at Hotelympia on stand 1521 in London’s ExCel on 5-8 March.
Seen for the first time at a British trade show, the manufacturer will debut its touchscreen user interface. Designed with ease of use, speed and functionality in mind, the new control system comprises of a bright touchscreen mirroring those of the latest smartphones.
The screen displays what are said to be simple and clear icons including colour-coded alarms which are highlighted on the screen to guide users in the next steps of a procedure as well as displaying various loading and cycle instructions and cycle times.
The interface can also be used to display machine diagnostics for both operators and service engineers as well as cleaning procedures to ensure that they are always carried out consistently to manufacture recommendations.
Another addition to the Wexiodisk stand will be new WD-8 hood machine. The warewashing unit is designed to handle bakery trays, thermos boxes, large cooking pots and pans as well as crockery. Featuring a flexible washing system that should allow users to adjust and reset the water pressure quickly and easily, operators can change between ‘normal wash’ and ‘heavily soiled wash’ functions enabling different items to be washed within one unit.
The WD-8 also has an automatic cleaning programme and rinse temperature controlled by a thermal stop system. The integrated HACCP control system is said to benefit hygiene levels, while a double-skinned hood which is both heat and sound insulating, is designed to reduce energy usage by keeping more of the heat inside the machine.
Other Wexiödisk appliances on show at Hotelympia include the WD-4S, the company’s latest undercounter warewasher with the capacity to wash up to 50 baskets per hour, equivalent to 1,000 glasses or 900 plates and the WD-6 Duplus and PRM-6 machines.
