Discover how the new 50x50cm racks can transform your kitchen routine, raising the quality of service and meeting the expectations of the most demanding customers.

Why choose the new 50x50cm racks for industrial dishwashers

The 50x50cm racks for commercial dishwashers are the most popular and standard size for professional undercounter, hood and rack conveyor dishwashers. These are universal racks, which fit any type of dishwasher and tableware. But what makes them so special? The advantages of these baskets during washing and rinsing are many:

  • Open design: the racks have an open structure, which allows for greater air and water flow than the racks with closed walls. This means that dishes and tableware wash and dry better, leaving no residue or halos. In addition, the open design facilitates visibility of the racks’ contents, making quality control and work organization easier.
  • Distribution of holes: the racks have an optimized distribution of holes in the bottom and sides of the rack, which allows water to reach every corner of the dishes and tableware, even the most irregular ones. The holes also have a distribution such that the tableware does not move or tip over during washing, providing greater safety and stability.
  • Quality materials: the racks are made of flexible polypropylene, a plastic material that is resistant to impact, high temperatures, detergents and bacteria. Polypropylene is also environmentally friendly, as it is 100% recyclable.
  • Quality: the racks are manufactured in Italy according to ISO 9001 standards.

High-performance 20″x20″ rack for professional dishwashers

For Sistema Project Italia, this rack for industrial dishwashers represents the constructive synthesis of a long product design study.

The innovative design of the rack and holes ensure higher water flow and jet pressure from the washing arm, reaching the dishes more easily, allowing for deeper washing and increased sanitation.

The rack is equipped with an easy-grip handle that provides a secure grip on the rack.

The particular design of the rack is also designed to offer another great advantage: the elimination of residual dirt.

In fact, in classic racks it often happens that after each wash, food residues get stuck on the sides and in the interstices of the rack.

The new basket offers high standards of cleanliness and hygiene in which food residues are no longer a problem.

Along with the rack, a series of complementary accessories have been developed that can improve the convenience of washing, such as: 40 cm basket insert for 8 plates, 13 place plate holder, square cutlery holder and round cutlery holder.

Washing tests and comparison between classic rack and new rack

The conditions under which the washing tests were carried out are as follows:

-classic 50×50 rack and a new 50×50 rack were used in the tests, and in both a dish insert was used

-the water temperature in the tank was 55°C

-no detergent or rinse aid was used, only water

-flat plates and glasses soiled with mustard were used and left to dry for 3 hours to create a particularly hard dirt to remove

-The test is divided into 3 STEPs (time in seconds):
.STEP 1: 30″ of washing
.STEP 2: with an additional 90″ of washing.
.STEP 3: with an additional 90″ of washing.
At the end of each STEP, the results were noted.

The chart below shows the levels of tableware cleanliness at the end of the test wash cycle:

Results

As can be seen, with the new 50x50cm dishwasher basket, the dirt levels in the dishes start to decrease already from the first wash cycle lasting only 30″ in which no detergent or rinse aid is used. The improved level of cleanliness is clearly visible to the naked eye on both glasses and dishes.

With the 50x50cm size we have completed the family of new professional dishwasher baskets, consisting of 3 sizes: 35x35cm basket, 40x40cm basket and 50x50cm basket. A complete line of baskets for the restaurant and catering industry for every type of professional dishwasher.
