Nelson has launched the Café Plus dishwasher for the demanding requirements of busy cafés and delis.
Calibrated to provide optimum results across cups, mugs, plates, glasses, and cutlery, Café Plus has seven programmes and can wash up to 60 baskets per hour.
A soft-start option is designed to protect delicate items as it gently builds in pressure to prevent chipping, cracking, or braking.
Thermo-acoustic insulation to the door and wash chamber is said to prevent heat from escaping and contributes to the almost silent running of the machine, so it's suitable for front of house sitting.
Café Plus features a shallow wash tank that is designed to use the minimum quantities of water and energy necessary, drawing 2.5 litres of rinse water per cycle which is then used in the subsequent wash.
Using less water means that filtration becomes more critical and Café Plus is fitted with a three-part filtration system that should maintain water quality by trapping food particles and dumping them with the wash water at the end of each cycle.
A lower volume of water should also mean that fewer chemicals are required, and the peristaltic pump dosing system for detergent and rinse-aid should release the optimum amount per wash cycle.
Wash tank coverage is enabled by the two stainless steel combined wash and rinse arms with strategically-angled directional jets.
The clear electronic controls are designed to be user friendly and, in the event that a problem should occur, the machine has a self-diagnostic fault system. A self-clean programme should avoid the need for manual cleaning and this will commence automatically at the end of service.
When the machine hasn't been used for a while it will revert to standby mode to ensure no unnecessary energy is wasted.
