TRADITIONAL POT WASHING REPLACED BY GRANULE TECHNOLOGY REDUCES WATER CONSUMPTION BY 50%.
After a case study showed remarkable water savings of over 91% when manual pot washing in sinks at the London Heathrow Marriott Hotel was replaced with a GRANULDISK solution, GRANULDISK now releases a second study – this time replacing a water-based dishwasher.
The second case study from GRANULDISK raises the bar, as the company now covers a replacement of a water-based pot washing machine with a GRANULDISK wash solution. Just as in the previous case, water meters were installed to measure water consumption for three months prior to and after installation of the Granule pot washer – and the results are in.
The water meter readings proved a 50% decrease in water consumption, which also means substantial energy and chemical savings. Dishwashing staff also testified to spending less time in the washing-up area and now have a two spare hours a day.
The new figures might not be as jaw-dropping as in the Marriott case, but bearing in mind that this site was already using a pot washing machine to start with puts things in a very different perspective.
- Documenting the change-over from a water-based pot washing machine to one of our Granule pot washers was actually very interesting for us, as it gives a very good picture of just how much waste pre-washing really represents, says Ulrika AHNFELT GRAN, GRANULDISK Product Manager. Of course, we already knew that, but having the proof in black and white not only gives substance to our claims – it also proves that the often hard to believe calculations in our business evaluations in fact are credible.
The second GRANULDISK case study was conducted at a major hotel in the centre of Stockholm, and the F&B Manager reports that positive effects are clearly noticeable throughout the operation, even in the dining area. As the porters now have more time on their hands, they are helping the servers out by sorting tableware, which in turn leaves the servers with more time to pamper the guests and add more value to the customer experience.
