Granuldisk has launched the Granule Smart+ warewasher, developed with retail sector sites in mind, but can also be deployed in other kitchen types utilising a broad variety of cookware for preparing food.
The front-loaded machine fits in less than 1metre2 and can clean and sanitise all wares used to cook food in a professional kitchen. It features dual power: Plus mode for crockery, glass, and plastic ware, as well as Granule Technology for pots, pans, chicken grids and other items that needs an extra boost. Granule Smart+ has a smart built-in loading table, but can also be operated as a system, with multiple baskets and trolleys. Product manager Ulrika Ahnfelt Gran said: “Granule Smart+ is available in four editions, aiming to fit different types of customer needs. Each edition comes with a selected accessories package and can be further customised. There are two editions especially developed for retail customers: Retail Edition and Retail FreeFlow Edition. These editions are created to make it easy to handle both wares like chicken grids as well as more delicate deli counter display ware.”
Granule Smart+ is claimed to save up to 2.8litres of chemicals, 1,400litres of water and 50kWh energy per day compared to manual washing in sinks. The unit washes up to 7 GN1/1 per cycle and up to 168 GN1/1 or GN1/2 per hour. Sites will not have to pre-wash or soak, as the appliance’s granules can clean and sanitise loads in 2.5 minutes.
Ahnfelt Gran added: “Granuldisk is on a mission to eliminate the pre-washing and washing in sinks one drop at a time, and at the same time provide the highest performing and most sustainable ware washing solution.
“Our warewashing machines use granules, water, and a small amount of detergent to mechanically scrub pots and pans clean. The blasting power combined with high temperatures washes hygienically clean in a matter of minutes, using in average 70% less water, energy, and chemicals than any other pot washing method.
“The new Granule Smart+ will improve the ergonomics and work environment and provide various beneficial savings for the customer.”
