Wexiödisk make social distancing in the wash-up area possible with their PRM and Sorting Units9 July 2020
Since launching their patented PRM (Pre-Rinse Machine) concept and Sorting Unit, Wexiödisk, has helped thousands of operators minimise their energy, water and labour spend… fast forward to present-day though, and the leading warewashing brand has made it their mission to explain how these unique concepts can also help operators to abide to social distancing measures within commercial wash-up areas as David Glover, UK & Ireland Country Manager for Wexiödisk, summarises:
“Social Distancing will of course be a challenge in many UK kitchens, hence why it’s so important that operators use this time to look at how they can arrange their kitchens and understand which equipment allows for practical and safe social distancing measures to be followed.
One major part of a commercial kitchen is of course the wash-up area – an area that can actually be easily designed with social distancing in mind, through use of equipment such as Wexiödisk’s PRM and sorting unit. These two solutions eradicate the need for pre-rinsing/sorting by hand, which in turn minimises the need for groups of staff to be in the warewashing area at one time.
For example, with the PRM, the kitchen porter simply brings the dirty items to the washup zone and places themdirectly in to the wash rack. Once filled, they push these into the PRM which automatically takes care of an outstandingly thorough pre-rinse process. On the clean side of the washing zone – which can be many metres apart from the dirty zone if an operator wishes – another member of staff can then take responsibility of the clean baskets of crockery/cutlery etc.”
By assigning these warewashing tasks to two separate members of staff, operators will in turn be preventing the need for a single person to keep switching between the clean and dirty side of the washing area, thereby minimising the risk of cross contamination.
