Hood Type Dishwasher: A Commercial Industry Must Have

When buying new or replacement hood type dishwashers, there are many different types, models, and systems to choose from. A commercial dishwasher, unlike other appliances, is a low-interest product that is chosen based on the available budget, the intended use of the appliances, the design, a preference for appearance, and “must-have” factors.

The food sector is increasingly engulfed by the critical approach taken by both the government and consumers to establish effective control methods and advanced options to assure safer and enhanced products. Safe work procedures ensure the safety of employees, but they must also ensure that the food produced is safe for consumers.

What is a Hood Type Dishwasher?

Commercial hood-type dishwashers, also known as pass-through dishwashers, are perfect for high-volume use in restaurants and catering establishments. With the help of the prewash table and basket exit, hood-type dishwashers allow for constant dishwashing at a comfortable working height. As a result, the washing process is completely coordinated. The hood is raised, a new basket is entered, and the hood is dropped while the machine works. Once the hood has been lowered to wash the next load of utensils, you can gather the next dirty dishes and load the next basket.

Because no bending or lifting is required during operation, hood-type machines are more ergonomically efficient than underbench machines. While the machine runs, racks can be loaded and pulled out as a one dirty enters the wash chamber.

There is now an obvious boundary between dirty and clean dishes, which improves hygiene. A sink can be added on the offensive side and fitted with an overhead spray nozzle to pre-rinse dishes before entering the machine, enhancing productivity for more soiled dishes, however it is not required.

Why Rhima Hood Type Dishwashers are the Best Solution for Your Business?

In most countries, most commercial dishwashers with a power rating of above 6kW and a design that is above the counter require an exhaust hood. However, in Australia this is dependent on the requirements of your local council as to whether an exhaust hood is required. Steam condensers, which use contemporary heat recovery technology, can often eliminate the requirement for separate extraction hoods.

Commercial dishwashers can wash roughly 20 to 25 racks per hour due to their simple loading and unloading. Most hood-type washers use three-phase power with built-in rinse aid and detergent dispenser. If required these machines can be converted to single phase (15 amp) however it is not recommended for operational requirements.
