SEE HOW THE M-iQ FROM MEIKO
DELIVERED BIG SAVINGS FOR MARRIOTT
Frontier Energy, the industry leader in commercial kitchen energy and water efficiency and appliance performance testing, recently reviewed two flight-type rackless conveyor dishwashers at The Marriott Hotel in San Ramon, California: a past-generation flight conveyor dish machine, then the M-iQ from MEIKO, equipped with exhaust air heat recovery.
The results of this independent audit were clear:
- The M-iQ used 63% less total water and 84% less hot water
- This yielded an 84% reduction in gas energy consumption
- Electrical energy use was reduced by 19%
- Estimated peak demand was reduced by 36%, from 70 kW to 45 kW
The audit concluded that switching to the MEIKO M-iQ flight type machine would result in a total annual savings of more than $23,000 for the San Ramon Marriott.
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE M-iQ FLIGHT-TYPE RACKLESS CONVEYOR SYSTEM
|The unique Air Concept system draws warm air towards the machine entrance, preheating the ware and reducing energy consumption.|
|MEIKO’s Energy Concept system features a “smart” internal booster heater and integral waste air heat recovery system to further reduce energy use, while automatically adjusting the final rinse temperature to a constant, sanitizing 180°F.|
|The M-iQ Filter system provides active water filtration, improving first-time washing results while dramatically reducing detergent consumption.|
|MEIKO's optional GreenEye™ feature provides visual lighting indicators to help operators load the machine in the most efficient way possible — and also includes the Green Filter system, removing even smaller food particles for enhanced washing performance.|
