"Each day we save about 4 hours just for the pot washing,
and the wash result is excellent."

Thomas Day, Head of Hospitality Services, Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh






The catering department at Heriot-Watt University serves around 2000-2500 meals per day which covers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Before the refurbishment all pots and pans were washed by hand - a very time consuming and tedious work.

After installing their Granule Maxi® pot washing solution from GRANULDISK, staff went from scrubbing pot and pans by hand in deep sinks, using heavy loads of hot water and harsh chemicals, to quickly scraping pans clean from food debris, loading them into the Granule pot washer and choosing a program. Quick, easy, hassle-free, while making substantial savings in water, chemical and labour costs.


“Each day we save about 4 hours just for the pot washing, and the wash result is excellent”, says Thomas Day, Head of Hospitality Services at Heriot-Watt.


Aside from happy and motivated staff, reduced operational costs, and a lower environmental footprint, Thomas and the team also noticed a very welcomed side-effect, as the pots and pans started to shine like new, just after a few wash cycles.



With a history dating back to 1821, Heriot-Watt University has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, leading-edge research, which has made it one of the top UK universities for business and industry. The university is set within its own grounds on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
