Winterhalter has launched new versions of its popular under-counter glasswashers and dishwashers making them more energy and water efficient.
A new smartphone style touch pad control panel has been incorporated with aim to offer further functionality at ease.
The body of the machine has also been reengineered to give it the longest possible service life.
Additionally, Winterhalter has upgraded its Connected Wash technology, making the new UC’s connectivity simpler and more robust.
Paul Crowley, Winterhalter UK’s marketing manager, said: “Saving running costs and getting the best possible wash results, reliably, are the two key criteria for most foodservice and bar operators.”
He continued: “In terms of meeting those needs, with the UC we think we’ve created something of a masterpiece.”
The UC’s performance is based around a total redesign of the wash arm, including changes to the water channels and jets to optimise water flow and create an improved washfield.
Following tests, the Milton Keynes-based company says that the upgrades show a more effective performance with an 88% removal rate.
Winterhalter claims this compares to a 38% and 14% rate shown by competitor brands.
In terms of running costs, the new washfield reduces rinse water consumption by up to 25%, which in turn, reduces energy consumption and chemical consumption, resulting in a reduction in operating costs of up to 22%.
The new UC is available in four sizes, small to extra-large and is available from dealers with list prices starting from £5,440.
