FCSI consultants have judged warewashing equipment from Wexiodisk the ‘most sustainable’ in the market, less than a year after the brand formally launched a UK operation.
Wexiodisk said that picking up the ‘Sustainable Catering Equipment Award 2013’ for its WD-PRM6 pre-rinse machine “topped off” a good 12 months for company in the UK.
UK & Ireland country manager, Simon Frost, said he was delighted to see the company gain recognition.
“To be recognised in an award such as this is a fantastic achievement for all involved in the company. The Wexiödisk WD-PRM6 has been designed to not only save caterers on their energy usage but also reduce chemical intake, man hours and provide significantly enhanced results, time and time again.”
The WD-PRM6 was designed and developed to replace the more traditional pre-wash hand shower, which often precedes most commercial dishwasher installations.
As a consumer of a significant amount of water, especially when left on during service, traditional hand showers can cost the operate substantial amounts of fresh water and heating energy, according to Wexidosk.
However, its WD-PRM6 utilises the warm, chemically-enriched waste water from the adjacent warewasher to effectively pre-rinse the plates, prior to entering the dishwasher.
In addition to the visible reduction in energy usage, the WD-PRM6 is able to reduce man hours, improve efficiency and enhance the working environment with less splashed water on the surfaces and the floor around the wash-up area.
Wexiodisk collected its award at the recent CESA Conference in Surrey.
