Winterhalter is teeing up dishwashers it claims have the potential to never break down as the star attraction at this year’s Restaurant Show.
On stand UG29 at London’s Olympia between 30 September – 2 October, the warewasher manufacturer will unveil the latest version of its Connected Wash technology which, it says, cuts running costs and improves efficiency, but also offers the prospect of dishwashers and glass washers that are almost 100% reliable.
Paul Crowley, marketing manager at Winterhalter, said: “A dishwasher or glass washer breaking down in the middle of a busy service can be catastrophic.
“Lots of restaurants only have one dishwasher – there’s no back up if it stops working, it’s time to deploy the marigolds. That’s why the potential of Connected Wash is so important. It can warn a service provider of potential problems before the component fails, which means their engineer can come and fix if before it causes a problem.”
The Winterhalter stand will have a feature on Connected Wash, showing visitors how it works, by connecting to the internet and allowing users to monitor machines remotely. As well as warning of technical issues, the system also logs performance data and offers suggestions on how to improve efficiency and minimise consumption of water and energy.
Another highlight of the stand will be the latest Winterhalter undercounter machine, the UC Masterpiece. This has a smart redesign that is claimed to have reduced its rinse water consumption by 25% and its running costs by 22%, but still deliver cleaning results.
