Leading UK warewasher expert joins Hubbard Systems

After Hobart and Dawson, Mellor looks forward to building the Comenda brand

One of the catering equipment industry’s most experienced dishwasher specialists, Jonathan Mellor, has joined Hubbard Systems as Technical Sales Manager responsible for the Comenda brand.  Mellor has twenty years’ experience in commercial dishwashing, working with Hobart and Dawson MMP.

The move follows Hubbard Systems’ appointment as UK distributor of the Comenda brand by The Ali Group.  “We aim to offer the same level of customer support for Comenda as we do for Scotsman icemakers,” says Simon Aspin, commercial director of Hubbard Systems.  “That means recruiting the top experts in the industry – and Jonathan certainly fits the bill.”


Washing dishes at the speed of EnergyLight

Winterhalter’s new passthrough warewashers deliver huge time-savingsThe PT warewasher from Winterhalter

Winterhalter’s latest PT series of passthrough warewashers has new systems that make them extra fast, cutting wash times and increasing capacity.

The EnergyLight system reduces the time needed to heat up the rinse water by 26%, by continuously pre-heating the incoming water supply.  At the same time it cuts running costs, because it uses the energy in the machine’s wastewater to heat the inlet water, via a heat exchanger.

Meanwhile the PT has a clever way of managing the energy which reduces the cleaning time for each wash cycle, increasing the rack capacity by up to 28% per hour.  It does this by channelling the power available to whichever component of the warewasher needs it most at that given point in time.  (more…)

Winterhalter Wins Case at the Inner Temple

Prestige venue persuaded by performance and service support

Winterhalter's MTR multi-tank conveyor dishwasher systemBased in the heart of London’s legal quarter, between Fleet Street and the Thames, the Inner Temple is one of the four ancient Inns of Court and has been home, workplace, school and library to generations of barristers and judges. Today, whilst continuing to serve over 8,000 members, the Inner Temple is a prestigious venue available for weddings and receptions, banqueting and corporate events.  Collectively the Main Hall restaurant, four function rooms and garden can host over a thousand visitors at a time, and the site is open seven days a week.

Don’t get steamed up about energy prices

Winterhalter’s UC Energy machines keep warewashing costs down as energy prices rise

Winterhalter Energy UC seriesTraditionally, warewashing has been a huge consumer of resources.  With energy prices expected to rise by some 8% in 2013 (according to MoneyExpert.com) pubs, bars and restaurants will be looking at how to cut their energy bills – especially when it comes to warewashing.

With this in mind Winterhalter developed the UC Energy undercounter dishwasher and glasswasher. It not only offers users substantial savings in energy costs but also improves the working environment around the warewasher, through its innovative use of heat exchange technology. (more…)

The XS Factor: making glasses and dishes cleaner

Extra small, ultra-efficient reverse osmosis water treatment system from Winterhalter

RoMatik XS from Winterhalter

Winterhalter has developed a highly compact reverse-osmosis water treatment system.  The RoMatik XS (eXtra Small) is designed to work with undercounter glass and dishwashers, such as Winterhalter’s own UC Series.  It combines all the benefits of a full-size system with low running costs and long service intervals. 

Reverse osmosis systems are recognised as the best way to treat water to ensure perfect glass and dish washing results, with no smears or odours.  Water is passed though an ultra-fine membrane which removes nearly all the impurities and particles that cause cleaning problems.  But traditional systems are large – often too large for the site.  Winterhalter’s new mini-system measures just 469mm (h) x 142mm (w) x 515mm (d), so is easily small enough to fit beside or even on top of the warewasher.  Yet it can process up to 90 litres of water per hour, removing 98% of particles.  (more…)
