LP-1 pot and utensil washer

With a foot print of only 690x800mm, the LP1 S8 Plus is Rhima’s most popular pot and utensil washer. Thanks to a chamber height of 810mm the machine is perfectly suited for most small to medium sized operations. The high chamber height is ideally suited for 800mm baking trays.

Benefits of the LP-1 pot and utensil washer:

  • Built in booster heater and thermostop which ensures a HACCP compliant 82oC fresh water final rinse
  • Five cycles pre-set to 120, 240, 360, 480 & 600 seconds each. They are fully programable with a self-cleaning cycle.
  • Hygienic deep-formed tank eliminates pump cavitation
  • Double skinned which means that less heat escapes and the machine is not hot to touch
  • Independent stainless-steel wash & rinse arms
  • Double tank filter with waste collection system
  • Energy saving as the machine reduces power when in standby mode
  • Multichromatic start key which clearly shows the working temperatures and the washing cycles in different colours so that it is clearly visible to users.
  • Self-diagnostic system that notifies if there are any anomalies
  • The internal corners of the double skinned tank are rounded for easy cleaning.
  • Just like all our products constructed entirely in stainless steel 304 with critical items like tanks in 316.


Heat Recovery Unit means the moist air is drawn directly out of the machine when the door is closed, and used for pre-heating the cold water supplied up to around 50°C. As a result, the energy required to reach the final rinse temperature (approx. 85°C) is dramatically reduced. With the LP1 you can save 4.85 kw/h.

The LP-1 pot and utensil washer also improves the room‘s air quality and climate. The heat recovery unit reduces the exhaust air temperature by more than half so that the entire humidity volume is cut down by approx. 10% of the LP1 without a heat recovery unit. This permanently improves the operators’ comfort.

    What is a condenser or heat recovery unit?

    A condenser is a unit that collects the steam that normally is vented from the dishwasher and condensates it. Cold water is circulated through a radiator type device and hot vapours are drawn though by a fan. In many cases the water from the condenser is used for the final rinse process as it is slightly pre-heated.  A heat recovery unit is similar to a condenser but with a larger heat exchanger and the heat that is transferred to the water is used to pre-heat final rinse water. A heat pump is a heat recovery unit that uses a refrigerant to remove all excessive heat from the machine and re-use for the final rinse. In most cases a heat recovery unit eliminates the need for direct connection to external ducting. However, the requirement for adequate room ventilation according to building codes still applies.

    What is the maximum temperature the machine can be connected to?

    If a Rhima machine is connected to hot water, it is recommended to have a maximum connection temperature of 70ºC. The maximum recommended final rinse temperature is 85ºC.

    If your washer has a disinfection cycle, the temperature will reach over 80ºC for 10 minutes or over 90ºC for 1 minute according to relevant standards on time vs temperature.

    Does my machine comply with HACCP guidelines?

    Rhima has developed a unique monitoring program that takes safety, hygiene and operational conditions into account. Once correctly setup your machine will comply with HACCP guidelines. At least once per year we recommend to do a safety hygiene test on the dishwasher. Rhima technicians are specially trained in carrying out preventative maintenance and HACCP testing on Rhima equipment. This includes temperature checks with a calibrated thermometer, residual protein swabs (before and after) as well as full preventative maintenance on the machine.
