Restaurants, catering, healthcare, and retail are all very different sectors with specific needs. But they have at least one thing in common: washing is key to all of them. The way your team washes tools and other utensils can boost productivity, safety and quality – or hinder it. It comes down to your choice of equipment, processes, and how your team is trained. That is why picking the right machine to handle large volumes of utensils is so important. It is, after all, a decision for years to come, but that should deliver results right away. So, how do you decide? There are some key factors to consider when choosing an industrial washer, no matter what the particular use case may be.

1. Performance

Obviously, performance is a key factor to consider. It is mostly measured in washing capacity – the amount of utensils washed per cycle – and the washing cycle length – the time to complete the cycle. The faster and bigger the better, at least for most cases. But there are other important factors to consider, like the ability to handle to wash items of different sizes or to adapt the wash to the load size, less water and detergent for smaller loads, and higher intensity washing for bigger ones.

Look for features such as robust washing capacity, efficient cycle durations, and advanced technologies that enhance cleaning performance. A high-performing industrial washer should not only remove tough residues and contaminants effectively but also do so with optimal resource utilization, ensuring both economic and environmental sustainability.

Take Sonae, a multinational business group present in 90 countries which operates hundreds of retail stores. They took 23 hours to wash utensils and work tools per day and store, and workers dedicated around 53% of their working time to these sanitizing tasks. With the Multiwasher, they saved 74% of time in washing utensils and work tools such as trays, trolleys, bakery screens, chicken roaster grills, suckling pig trays, replacement trolleys, shopping baskets, among others.

2. Materials

The materials that make up an industrial washer play a crucial role in determining the longevity and reliability of an industrial washer. In particular, look for resistance to corrosive elements. For example, stainless steel should be a priority for crucial components.

Opting for high-quality materials not only ensures the industrial washer can withstand the rigors of frequent use but also contributes to resistance to corrosion, maintaining its structural integrity over time. Investing in a machine constructed from durable materials is a strategic choice that pays dividends in the form of extended equipment lifespan and consistent performance in the challenging environments characteristic of industrial applications.

3. Cost and savings

As with any purchase, price is a crucial factor that demands careful consideration. However, it’s essential to approach this decision with a strategic mindset, weighing not only the upfront costs but also the long-term savings. This involves an assessment of operational costs, energy efficiency, and maintenance expenses throughout the lifespan of the industrial washer.

By finding the optimal balance between initial investment and ongoing operational efficiency, businesses can make informed decisions that contribute to both financial prudence and sustained performance.

4. Ergonomics

In an industrial setting, the dimensions of any equipment are crucial. For a washing equipment in particular, the ergonomic design significantly impacts operator comfort and efficiency. The dimensions of the industrial washer should align with the available workspace, optimizing floor space utilization. Furthermore, ergonomic features contribute to operator well-being during operation and maintenance tasks.

A thoughtfully designed industrial washer ensures not only a smooth workflow but also minimizes the risk of operator fatigue or discomfort, enhancing overall productivity in the industrial environment. For instance, the ability to load a full cart into the machine or simply select from a list of pre-saved wash programmes greatly reduces strain. An intuitive and user-friendly design facilitates seamless operation, reducing the potential for errors and streamlining maintenance tasks.

5. Flexibility

Flexibility is a key factor when procuring industrial washers. An industrial washer should adapt to various loads and types of materials, offering a tailored cleaning solution for different industrial applications. Look for an industrial washer that allow customization of wash cycles, temperature, detergent, and pressure to ensure optimal washing performance for different items processed.
