Latest plastic cleaning system will be a bonus for busy hospital caterers
Stand M70, HCA Forum, Hilton Birmingham Metropole, April 20-21 2023
Plastic tableware and glassware, including melamine and polycarbonates, play a big role in many hospital catering setups. However, they can present issues when it comes to cleaning in commercial dishwashers: they flip over, they can be damaged by high temperatures, and they take forever to dry.
At the HCA Forum 2023 Winterhalter will show its latest system for washing plastics, including a specially developed rack designed to allow reusable plastic bowls and plates to be washed in its undercounter and passthrough dishwashers.
The new system for plastic bowls follows a similar model to Winterhalter’s plastic cup washing solution. It involves a specially designed rack that keeps bowls in the right position during washing, a specialised rinse aid chemical to ensure the plastic dries quickly, and a new wash program specially calibrated for cleaning lightweight plastic safely.
Winterhalter’s plastics washing systems result in hygienically clean plastic bowls, plates and cups, washed safely without damage, that dry quickly so that they can be used from the wash.
