The PT is the markets first pass-through with energy-saving, heat-exchange technology fitted as standard. The system extracts energy from the waste water, using it to heat up the incoming cold water supply. This reduces energy costs by up to 10 per cent.
The PT Series also features an energy-control system that speeds up the washing process, increasing rack capacity per hour by 28 per cent and reducing heat-up time by 50 per cent.
The speed of the system means the PT is ready for action faster than conventional pass-throughs, allowing back-to-back rack washing - a big bonus for busy kitchens in peak times.
The PT’s ‘VarioPower’ feature allows the operator to quickly optimise the programme to suit the delicacy or dirtiness of the wash items. All staff have to do is push the relevant pictogram on the control panel to select the wash they want. VarioPower adjusts pressure, temperature, time, detergent and rinse aid to ensure perfect results are guaranteed, even with stubborn soiling.
Winterhalter claims the PT is the first pass-through that can be truly customised to each site’s requirements and local conditions. The installation engineer can adjust the machine to take account of everything from the type of food on the menu to the hardness of the water and calibrate the machine accordingly.
It is easy to use, whatever the operator’s first language; clear touch-activated pictograms set the program in motion. Visual and audio alarms let staff know instantly if there are any problems, such as a blocked wash field or lack of detergent.
Initially, there are two machines in the range - the PT-M (medium) and the PT-L (large)., with the extra-large becoming available in October. Their theoretical capacity is up to 77 racks per hour for glasswashing and 72 per hour for dishwashing.
