Wexiödisk pre-rinse machine ‘cleans up’ at FCSI Awards

Combining an ambition to manufacture the world’s best warewashing equipment, with a drive to lower energy usage and environmental impact, Wexiödisk has taken the UK foodservice market by storm in the past year. Now to top off a fantastic 12 months for the Scandinavian company since the UK launch, Wexiödisk has been awarded the FCSI ‘Sustainable Catering Equipment Award 2013’ for the innovative, sustainable, WD-PRM6 Pre-Rinse Machine.

The award-winning Wexiödisk WD-PRM6 was designed and developed to replace the more traditional pre-wash hand shower which often precedes most commercial dishwasher installations.

As a consumer of a significant amount of water, especially when left on during service, as is often the case, traditional hand showers can cost the operate substantial amounts of fresh water and heating energy. In comparison, the Wexiödisk WD-PRM6 utilises the warm, chemically enriched waste water from the adjacent warewasher to effectively pre-rinse the plates, prior to entering the dishwasher.

In addition to the visible reduction in energy usage, the WD-PRM6 is able to reduce man hours, improve efficiency and enhance the working environment with less splashed water on the surfaces and the floor around the wash-up area. For an average establishment which uses a typical hand shower for a 30 second wash per basket, based on 150 baskets a day – the equivalent to 55,000 baskets a year, the savings achieved by the WD-PRM6 are truly remarkable:

  • Up to 200,000 litres of water per year
  • Up to 40% reduction on cleaning chemicals per year
  • Up to 8,000kw of electricity per year
  • Up to 4,200kg of CO2 per year
  • Up to 90 man hours per year.

The FCSI Sustainable Product Award, presented at the CESA Conference in association with the FCSI and BHA at the Savill Court Hotel & Spa in Windsor, saw Wexiödisk follow in the footsteps of a number of other leading manufacturers to scoop the top spot for the pre-rinse machine at this year’s award.

UK & Ireland Country Manager for Wexiödisk, Simon Frost, explained his delight having taking the top spot:

“To be recognised in an award such as this is a fantastic achievement for all involved in the company. With a heritage built on the very best in manufacturing, intrinsically combined with sustainability and the environment, Wexiödisk has developed one of the most advanced product ranges on the market. The Wexiödisk WD-PRM6 has been designed to not only save caterers on their energy usage but also reduce chemical intake, man hours and provide significantly enhanced results, time and time again.”
