Hotpack Vertical SpaceSaver(TM) Washers Offer a Small Footprint and Operate Easily

Hotpack Vertical SpaceSaver(TM) Washers are an excellent choice for areas where floor space is tight. These compact units, which offer all of the basic features of Hotpack Undercounter Washers, have been equipped with automatic detergent and neutralizer dispensing pumps, without increasing the size of the cabinet. Designed to meet the lowest floor space requirement, SpaceSaver units typically require 35% less floor space than similar featured competitive models. For maximum convenience and efficiency, the load height of 33" (84 cm) off the floor allows users to load the washer without bending over. Controls are at eye level for simple operation. Options include a wide variety of specialty baskets, a separate DI pump, and a HEPA-filtered drying package for applications that require maximum throughput.

Hotpack SpaceSaver Washers feature a fully programmable PLC control with touch screen user interface. Users can select from preprogrammed wash cycles or develop custom cycles to fit specific needs. The large touch screen display allows easy navigation and provides full sentence help screens for novice users. Temperature selections up to 82°C are available for different loads. Hotpack SpaceSaver Washers offer the same spindle rack capacities for handling various glassware loads as do undercounter models.
