Questions to consider:

  • Do you have a preference for the manufacturer of your glasswasher?   Camlab can provide Smeg, Miele and Camlab Cub Glasswashers.
  • What type of wash do you require? There are two types to consider,  baskets to hold the glassware, or injection racks for taller vessels and hard to clean items.
  • Do you need an additive pump? Most glasswashers come with a pump but you will need additional pumps for neutraliser, anti-foaming agents etc
  • Do you need any peripheral equipment? How do plan to monitor the performance, will you need a printer or a USB interface?
  • Are there any other options you might need like a detergent store or a steam condenser?
  • What sort of water supply do you have? We will need to know if you have sources of cold and hot water or just cold.
  • Do you have a source of deionised water for the rinse programs? Tell us if you have a  deionised water supply or a bench mounted reservoir, maybe you don’t have a source at all?
  • Lastly, what sort of power supply can you provide? The power supply needs to be 13Amp, 30Amp (240Volts, single phase) or  (400Volts) three phase(16amp/phase).

Once you know what parameters you have to work with you can go ahead and choose a glasswasher that will fit into the space you have allocated.
