Winterhalter’s UC machines with thermal disinfection programme available with Pay Per Wash

For care homes, sanitisation is an essential. Winterhalter’s UC undercounter machines are available with a thermal disinfection option – and care homes can now install them under the Pay Per Wash initiative, which means there’s no upfront cost, operators simply pay for each wash as they go along.

The UC is a front-loading machine that’s available in four different sizes, small, medium, large and extra-large. The thermal disinfection wash cycle meets the HMT2030 regulations by washing at 73ºC for 3 minutes, delivering total hygiene control. Using this wash programme, the UC can handle up to 10 racks per hour, with the racks ranging in size from 400x400mm in the small model to 500x540mm in the extra-large. When the thermal disinfection programme is not required, the UC can handle up to 48 racks per hour. Its compact size means it can fit into small kitchens, while its high output means it can wash quickly and effectively. (more…)
