Hobart Warewash has been honoured for the levels of innovation characterised by its class-leading range in advance of one of Europe’s biggest events.
The company was awarded a HOST 2015 SMART label presented by the organisers of the biennial Host exhibition, staged in Milan later this month.
Hobart was among a number of leading global companies honoured for providing operators with solutions “characterised by a particularly high level of innovation”. The company’s leading PREMAX FTPi and PROFI FTNi flight type machines were singled out for special praise by an international panel of judges who cited functionality, technology, the environment, as well as social and ethical aspects as key factors in the award.
David Riley, Managing Director of Hobart Warewash UK, said: “We are delighted that our efforts to drive product innovation across our range has been acknowledged at such a prestigious global event. This shows that our equipment is valued by specifiers and end-users across the industry who recognise the roles of innovation and engineering excellence in terms of raising standards.”
With clean cut styling on the outside and a host of unique innovations within, Hobart’s FTPi and FTNi are the most economical warewashers of their types ever made.
The machines include world-first patented twinLINE technology which makes it possible to wash trays on a separate conveyor while the other items are being washed in the machine making for vastly superior operational efficiency. For ease of use, trays are then automatically stacked in the exit section of the machine. Crucially, the system increases capacity without increasing footprint and makes washing up to 30% faster.
The machines also use their own energy to ensure a stable internal temperature balance – a precondition for achieving consistent and hygienic results. Hobart’s CLIMATE PRO System recycles 100% of the machine’s thermal energy also significantly reducing the energy consumption of the machine.
HOST 2015, which is the international exhibition of the hospitality industry, is taking place from October 23rd-27th.
