Industrial dishwashers, which are widely used in the field of an industrial kitchen, are among the indispensable products. It stands out with its efforts to reduce water and detergent consumption in industrial dishwashers, and the consumers’ preference for these products is increasing. Our company produces industrial dishwashers in various models and capacities. Unlike our existing products and our competitors’ products, the washing area and the products to be washed are technically detected by the users in R&D studies. An innovative prototype has been designed and developed that contributes to the reduction of detergent consumption. In the industrial kitchen sector, for the first time in our country, variable dish capacity (providing washing specific to various filling capacities) with an innovative smart technology (providing washing only in the filled section with the detection system) that reduces water and detergent consumption in the washing process according to their types (glass/plate, spoon/fork, etc.) is applied to the industrial dishwashers. It has been ensured that the industrial dishwasher prototype is obtained with several new and innovative features compared to the original and existing industrial dishwashers reducing water and detergent consumption. R&D studies have been made by using engineering calculations, simulations, and experiments in cooperation with industry-universities.
