Swedish warewashing manufacturer, Wexiodisk, has launched the latest addition to its range of undercounter warewashers.
In what it calls a ‘world first’, Wexiodisk says the WD-4S Glass enables operators to place the door in a space-saving hygienic position, which prevents the growth of bacteria when the machine is not in use.
The WD-4S Glass merges a quiet, yet efficient cycle with the capacity to wash up to 50 baskets per hour, equivalent to 1,000 glasses. The model is specifically designed for washing glasses and has three specific cycles, each featuring wash times and water temperature which can be adjusted for different glass types.
The glasswasher features a pioneering heat recovery system, designed to minimise the release of steam when opening the door whilst also allowing the unit to start pre-heating the incoming water for the following cycle thus saving further energy and reducing the need for specific ventilation.
Additionally, this new airflow system utilises the steam generated to dry the glasses faster, saving the operator from drying glasses by hand. This, coupled with the specifically designed wash basket which tilts the glasses at the optimum angle ensuring that the water does not run along the glasses’ surface, glassware is left smear-free.
The introduction of a new active filter helps to maintain the quality of the tank water for longer, by removing the leftover residue, the same water can be used for up to a full day and still provide a high quality finish. The automatic control of the water temperature ensures a high standard of hygiene and reduces the labour time spent on maintaining the machine. It also features an inbuilt dosing system for both detergent and drying agents simplifying user operation and minimising operator contact with the washing chemicals.
The WD-4S Glass is equipped with a smart, touch sensitive, tempered glass display, intuitive icons for clear and simple operation and a bright, vivid digital screen showing status indication, tank temperature and remaining wash time. Users can easily change between the three glass wash modes or replace the water in the tank with clean water when required, without having to open the door, remove any filters or drain plugs.
The WD-4S Glass automatically empties the tank and refills itself, as well as dosing the correct chemicals and heating the water to the correct operating temperature at the push of a button.
