Using the right chemicals and good water treatment can pay dividends in cutting running costs and extending the longevity of your kit.

●Ecolab’s Apex warewashing system promises to provide excellent cleaning results while reducing water and energy use and making the warewashing process simpler and safer for kitchen staff. The Apex system’s controller

provides real-time monitoring of operations and logs elements of the warewashing process, such as wash and final rinse temperatures. Ecolab sales-and- service associates use a tablet PC to download, process and analyse the Apex system’s operational data to establish each restaurant’s operational challenges and efficiency ratios. The information is presented in a dashboard report, allowing users to review system operations, including data for every rack washed. A comparative study,

undertaken by Ecolab and the Institute for Work Safety in Germany, found using solid warewashing products reduced body strains by up to 90% when compared with liquids. The solid products are lighter and easier to lift, and will not spill, helping to improve employee safety. The new Apex products include

two new detergents that provide outstanding cleaning and stain removal as well as three rinse additives with enhanced formulations for higher performance.

to maximise cost savings and prof- itability, and when it comes to warewashing, this means reduc- ing their daily consumption of water, energy and detergent.” David Smithson, chief execu- tive at Classeq says: “Embodying the brand’s ethos – ‘warewashing made simple’ – our new collection of under-counter glass and dish- washers includes 13 machines across two ranges, the Standard and Duo. Operating on a digital system rather than electro- mechanical, the chemical dosing is run electronically and ensures the required amount of chemicals are dispensed in each wash.”

●Derek Maher from Crystaltech, the largest specialist company for the installation and servicing of all makes of glasswashers and dishwashers, says: “It is not just the machines themselves that can provide energy and water savings, as using the right type of cleaning chemical can enable the lowering of wash temperatures and still give sparkling clean results.” Crystaltech offers a reverse osmosis (RO) system, which pushes purified water through the wash cycle, meaning fewer chemicals are required at lower temperatures by up to 70%, making it a much more energy efficient proposition. It also removes the need to hand-polish glassware, therefore saving staff time and potentially transferring germs with cleaning cloths. ●Kevin Johnson, managing director at Monarch Water, says: “Water treatment equipment should be seen as an investment and insurance to help maintain a successful business rather than a cost. With professional advice, wholesale benefits can be achieved from the point of its installation, providing appliance protection, energy bill and labour savings by virtually eliminating the scale build-up caused by the calcium and magnesium. “An estimated 60% of the UK

suffers from the effects of hard water. The composition of hard water has a harmful impact on the end-quality of warewashing results if not treated. Investigate and take professional advice to ensure that you adopt the right protection.”
