Your dishwasher is a vital part of your kitchen, serving dirty plates to customers won’t be as forgivable as an overcooked Rump Steak. Limescale builds up in your machine can be detrimental to your businesses hygiene rating. To provide sanitation dishwashers reach a temperature of 82.2°c, limescale can build up around the heating element decreasing the machine performance and capability of achieving high temperatures for cleaning.
Limescale build up will lead to mineral deposits forming on your plates. This will appear as a white film on your dishes. So how do we tackle it?
While we recommend that all appliances fitted to mains water supplies (mainly commercial dishwashers and glass washers) are installed and equipped with a water softener. The extent on which you will rely on your water softener to protect equipment, the frequency at which you are required to regenerate your water softener and the size of water softener you need will largely depend on whether you live in a hard water area or not.
The hardness of water supplied to your commercial dishwasher can have a considerable impact on machine longevity and wash results as hard water creates limescale deposits, both on machine components and washed items. That’s why most commercial dishwashers are designed to operate in connection with a water softener.<!
