Medanta multi-specialty medical institute relies on MEIKO technology
Spread across 43 acres, Medanta is one of India’s largest specialty hospitals located in Gurgaon, a bustling town near New Delhi. Medanta has 1250 beds and over 350 critical care beds with 45 operating theatres catering to over 20 specialties. Medanta is specially geared to international patients, helping generate a growing trend in medical tourism. According to Indian estimates, almost 200,000 foreigners fly to India for medical treatment every year.
The hospital has recently installed a MEIKO M-iQ model B-M54 V6 P6. Deepak Batra is General Manager, F & B at Medanta - The Medicity, who explains: “Medanta is a high volume operation requiring a durable and quality cleaning solution. MEIKO is a world leader in flight type conveyor dishwashers and was a natural choice for our operation, as the health and safety of our patients is our top priority and we didn’t want to compromise in this aspect;"
"Hence we chose MEIKO."
“We all know that this machine has the design property of a heat recovery system. At this point we have not investigated/calculated how much energy the machine is saving in terms of energy, as the earlier machine was of a lower capacity and the load of the kitchen has now increased a lot when compared to earlier days.”
No additional ducting or exhaust infrastructure were required for the installation at Medanta. The M-iQ’s integrated heat recycling features releases minimal moisture and heat into the dishwashing area, which helps to keep the area cool and generates no extra load to building HVAC system.
The M-iQ features a superb air management system and process-oriented heat recovery module which eliminate the need for a direct exhaust air connection. As well as ensuring optimum energy efficiency, MEIKO’s M-iQ machines also include a one-of-a-kind filter system which enables the machine to clean itself. The pumped rinse system only needs to be filled once to completely remove all the dirt from the machine.
M-iQ machines use 33% less energy, water and detergent than their predecessors,while delivering a 30% improved cleaning performance thanks to a high-pressure wash system. Heat recovered from the washing process is re-used by means of a clever 3-stage energy control system. The system dynamically adjusts changes in heating distribution to minimise energy consumption. Using exhaust heat as a source of free energy to preheat the incoming final rinse water also permits high temperature sanitization using a cold water supply.
