Rack Conveyor Dishmachine Design - 1 CEU
FCSI and fishnick offer an engaging conversation between designer and researcher about what can go sideways in real-world dishmachine operations and how to avoid the most common mistakes.
Amin Delagah, the lead dishmachine researcher at the PG&E Food Service Technology Center, shares some of the surprising results he uncovered during his field research. Connie Dickson, FCSI, poses a hypothetical dishroom project, and together they talk through the details and arrive at an efficient, cost effective, customer-pleasing design.
• Learn how you can save your customer money on water and energy by installing a dedicated water meter
• Find out why it makes sense to spec equipment with advanced built-in diagnostics
• Learn the energy-saving benefits of designing dishrooms with long entry and exit dishtables that support batch washing of racks
• Learn how to effectively specify appropriately sized dishmachines based on the types of wares being washed and how overspray wastes money

Top Shelf Kitchen Design: 4 Steps to Efficient Equipment
Finding efficient cooking, holding, dishwashing and refrigeration equipment for your kitchen design is not difficult if you know where to look. And, justifying that equipment to your client – or defending it against value engineering – is much easier if you know how to model the cost savings for each piece of equipment.Join Richard Young from the Food Service Technology Center and Dick Eisenbarth from Cini-Little International for a webinar that will guide you through the four steps of the FSTC method – a simple approach to finding efficient equipment and modeling cost savings.
