It was a powerful entry-level medium sized glasswasher that could clean up to 480-pint glasses per hour using a standard 400mm basket.

  10. Water Softener Regeneration

    Water Softener Regeneration

    A manual 8 or 12 litre water softener can be fitted to any Glasswasher or Commercial Dishwasher machine, and is an extremely important piece of equipment, when in hard water areas, that will ensure good washing results, can lower detergents usage and most importantly reduce the build-up of limescale to avoid expensive breakdowns and guarantees of suppliers' warranties.


    For light use, regeneration once a month will be sufficient – more intensive use can require two regenerations per month. If washer starts to scale up (turns white internally), then you will need to up the frequency to a more regular interval.
