dome dishwashersNot a single restaurateur who respects his business will leave the kitchen without a good dishwasher. Manual labor, of course, is cheaper, but a professional dishwasher can cope with washing much faster, and possibly better, not only washing dishes from food debris, but also disinfecting it. A domed dishwasher is a popular type of professional equipment for moderate catering establishments. It will be discussed in this article.

Features of this technique

Dome dishwashers are different from other types of professional equipment (tunnel and frontal cars) simplicity of design, which makes them more reliable. The design feature is that the dishes and kitchen utensils are loaded into the washing chamber from above, on which they then put on a special sealed hood, similar to a dome. Under this dome, the entire washing process is carried out.

For different types of dishes (plates, pans, glasses), as well as cutlery, separate baskets are provided. Hot water under pressure is sprayed onto the dishes from above and below, and detergent comes from the dispensers. After washing in the same tank, the dishes are rinsed and dried under hot air. The whole process takes no more than three minutes, so in one hour the machine can wash up to 2000 plates.

Note! You can connect the machine to cold and hot water, however, when connected to hot water, additional filters will be required to soften hard water.

Dome dishwashers can be equipped with additional tables for making dishes. Perhaps the presence of a sink with a shower for pre-flushing food debris from objects.
