Before the installation of a new dishwashing solution by MEIKO Wash-Up Technologies Ltd., based in Zhongshan, Guangdong province, Chang’an Campus used traditional methods to clean and disinfect cutlery and dishes and the food waste was handled manually. The old system involved keeping a large reserve of cutlery and dishes and the use of disinfectors for cutlery disinfection. MEIKO warewashing systems were selected because of their excellent washing results, combined with labour and cost-saving benefits.

First and second floor facilities include MEIKO B690VAP-CSS-Top flight dishwashers, with Bi-Cord conveyor and AZP 80 food waste dewatering unit with flushing trough, for a washing capacity of up to 7,000 plates per hour. Waste food is scrapped into the flushing trough which feeds the AZP.  In turn, the AZP reduces volume of the food waste by up to 80 per cent, creating significant savings in labour, transport and storage. Third and fourth floor facilities utilize MEIKO B190P flight dishwashers with throughputs up to 2,000 plates/hour.

The CSS-Top system effectively helps to reduce chemicals consumption by up to 80 %. Additionally, incorporating CSS-Top increases warewashing throughput by approximately 20 %, bringing further savings on energy and water consumption.
