Having been rolled out in the European market, Wexiödisk is now introducing its automatic cutlery sorter, the ACS-800, to the UK.
Specifically designed to help operators improve hygiene standards, the ACS-800 minimises the need for kitchen porters to touch cutlery after being washed in a Wexiödisk warewasher. This is thanks to Wexiödisk’s logistics system, with a buffer band and sorter, which together work to automatically transport clean cutlery into a sorter which can be pre-programmed to separate up to 3,600 pieces of mixed cutlery per hour.
By utilising this system to its full potential, caterers can obtain optimal cutlery hygiene standards, particularly within public sector venues such as schools, universities and hospitals where the pupil/staff-member/visitor will be the first to touch the cutlery in the sorting box, after it has come out of the dishwasher.
David Glover, UK and Ireland country manager at Wexiödisk UK, explained: “Many public sector and B&I venues operate a part self-serve/canteen-style catering regime which involves the customer picking up their own cutlery, hence why Wexiödisk’s hygiene-led ACS-800 is important, allowing operators to easily remove all points of human contact with the cutlery before being picked by the customer.”
The ACS-800 is also designed to save time and improve the working environment, as it eradicates the laborious requirement of sorting cutlery by hand.
