KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR MEIKO’S NEW BOTTLE WASHING SYSTEM
But how do you wash bottles, inside and out, maintaining top-level hygiene without using excessive labour and chemicals?
This is why Meiko has launched its own BOTTLE WASHING SYSTEM.
"MEIKO's new bottle wash rack and adapter are a fast, efficient and simple solution for all standard bottle sizes and shapes," says Meiko UK MD Paul Anderson.
“Washing bottles usually requires bespoke washing solutions tailored to an individual bottle size. But Meiko has engineered a robust solution that is also fast and provides the guarantee of total hygiene that caterers demand.
"Caterers choosing Meiko equipment can be assured that the washing results provide the highest level of hygiene, tested to DIN 10534. Meiko dishwashers deliver a high temperature wash and rinse certified to inactivate the coronavirus as well as bacteria such as E-coli 0157 which is responsible for many instances of food poisoning."
To use Meiko M-iClean UM dishwashers as bottle washers, the bottom wash arm is replaced with the BOTTLE WASH ADAPTER.
This system uses separate, sealed channels to first send wash fluid into the bottle, then separately, rinse aid. Specially designed nozzles spray the chemicals directly into the bottles, along with water, guaranteeing that the full power of the jet enters the bottle – ensuring that everything is hygienically cleaned.
Meiko machines have a theoretical capacity of 640 bottles per hour, and each Meiko rack can hold up to 16 bottles.
What is more, the Meiko Bottle Washer takes bottles up to 114 mm wide and up to 370 mm tall.
The MEIKO bottle washing system is suitable for all M-iClean UM/UM+ machines. The flexible plastic rack is suitable for a wide range of bottle sizes (up to a diameter of 114 millimetres) and heights and can even be retrofitted for all M-iClean UM and UM+ under-counter dishwashers from 2009.
