SMEG Ecoline of commercial dishwashers

At the trade show in Sydney, Smeg released there Ecolinecommercialdishwashers.

After installing one of these dishwashers I had the chance to check them out.

The Ecoline range of commercialGlasswasher / dishwasher, still have all the features in the programming & have paristaltic pumps for rinse aid & detergent.

Due to being single skinned machines they don’t have a counter weighted door but they do have a very impressive door support. Most owners of commercialdishwashers know how easy the supports can pull through the door frame, the door drops passed its stop point & damages the hinges. Very costly!

The wash / rinse arm has a quick release, easy to remove & clean.

Three sets of sieves in the wash tank to filter out the debris before it blocks the wash arms.

Overall great machine.

New MKN FLEXI COMBI Oven Install in brisbane

New 10 tray MKN Combi Oven, Flexi Combi. This oven uses less water than most ovens on the market & in Europe it has won the Energy Star Award. (see below)

This is a great oven to use & I,m sure that in the near future, netflix will become an option for the touch display. It’s just like using an iPad, the quality of the screen is great.

The size of the cooking chamber is larger than all the ovens in its class, so I’ll ask the question, Does size matter?

I fitted a BWT Best Protect water filter system with a maxi flow for a pre filter. This will protect the inner working of the oven.

Gambaro’s get a new Commercial Smeg dishwasher.

Thank you Gambaro’s for purchasing this Smeg commercial dishwasher.

600 x 500 dishwasher rack size, 22 plates per wash thats 6 plates extra per wash, doesn’t sound much but over a busy night it makes a big difference.

It was an interesting job, installing this machine but Wayne (stainless man) did a great job in modifying the bench, as you can see in the photo below there were water taps mounted to the wall which prevented this machine from going fully back.

The Hobart H67 Chris & I pulled out had the back panel cut out which allowed debris to build up behind the machine, I wasn’t going to do this to the new machine.

After a few adjustments & some new valve the new Smeg CWC611D commercial Dishwasher fitted perfectly.

Chris, Impec & the Chemical company Bris-Safe have fitted there detergents & checked the settings & titration level. Thanks Guy.





Smeg 600 500 Rack Commercial Dishwasher

I had the pleasure of commissioning a CWC621DH at a child care centre this week, what a great machine!

This unit has a heat recovery & runs on cold water.

Therefore the customer doesn’t need to install a canopy & extraction fan over the machine, saving on costly fit outs.

The extra 100mm rack, which doesn’t sound much will give room to fit extra plates & have the trays standing upright in the rack reducing the drying time.

For the service technician, all of the controls are located in the front, easy to program & use.
