MEIKO Warewashers Win Kudos For Sensor Technology
The German company won a Kitchen Innovations award this year in the US for raising the bar on water conservation with its GreenEye-Technology integrated system for flight-type warewashers. A light coaching system indicates which conveyor belt should be filled for maximum water efficiency, sensors detect the location of the dishware, and these lanes are then targeted for optimal delivery of fresh rinsewater only where needed. All other final rinse systems deliver water across the full width of the conveyor belt, leading to significant waste in water, energy and chemical use, as well as environmental impact. MEIKO’s GreenEye-Technology system dramatically reduces final rinsewater consumption (depending on the type and amount of ware being loaded) can be reduced by up to 66%. This also proportionally reduces the use of heating energy and chemicals. Operating expenses are significantly improved and environmental impact is reduced.
