01Uses existing sinks: simple retro-fit capability.
New sink needed: retro-fit not an option, capability not available.
02No kitchen modification needed: for either UPI Sonic Wash™ system with sink, or retro-fit UPI Sonic Wash™ system.
Expensive kitchen re-work: requires extensive electrical and plumbing changes.
03Saves labor: unattended washing, no manual scrubbing, requires load and unload only.
Saves labor: unattended washing, some manual scrubbing, requires load and unload only.
04Saves energy: washes at lower temperatures.
Consumes more energy: higher wash temperatures and heaters required.
05Saves chemicals: needs small quantities of non-caustic surfactants.
Requires harsh detergents: needs large amounts of expensive aggressive chemicals.
06Less environmental impact: less chemicals discharged to the waste stream.
High environmental impact: needs more changes of water and discharges harmful chemicals.
07Saves water: less sinks fills.
Uses more water: excessive sink fills required.
08Reduces effluent: less sink draining, better quality & less quantity of effluent via grease trap.
More sink draining needed: with negative impact and effect via grease trap.
09Superior sanitation*: ultrasonic cavitation and surfactants kill pathogenic organisms.
Doesn’t meet sanitation standards: not achievable or attainable.
10Superior results: less hard water spotting and tendency of ware to flash dry.
Not able to compete: not achievable without chemical treatment and energy use.
11Superior cleaning: cleans all hidden surfaces.
Limited to flat surfaces: inaccessible areas can’t be cleaned.
12Quieter in operation: passive cleaning, no moving parts.
Higher noise levels: jetted sink relies on turbulence, increased noise with decibel spikes.
13Always working: reserve capability, ensures 50% washing capacity always available.
Mechanical failure: failure of pump results in total loss of washing capacity.
14Simple maintenance: self-diagnostic supported by web and phone. Site visit rarely necessary, limited loss of production time.
On site service required: service agent must call for maintenance with potential loss of production time.
15Health & Safety: passive cleaning with no moving parts.
High agitation required: jetting action and dynamic motion.
16Health & Safety: no dangerous chemicals or hot water required.
Reduced operator safety: harmful caustics chemicals and hot water required.
17Cares for the environment: non-caustic surfactants in discharge with less volume to the waste stream.
High water & detergent consumption: greater volume of harmful chemicals discharged to the waste stream.
18Cleans all kitchen & dining ware: including china, pottery, wood, aluminum, stainless steel etc.
Metal ware only: cannot wash fragile items.
19May qualify for Public Utility Company rebates: PUCs offer rebates for both energy and water savings.
Does not qualify for Public Utility Company rebates: not available for these pot washers.
20Cleans every shape and size of ware: cleaning capability unaffected by geometry, shape or size.
Design not flexible: cleaning limited to areas impinged by jetting action.
21Increased cleaning productivity: increased throughput speed.
Longer cleaning time: pressure jetted slower and less effective.
22Used for intended purpose only: cannot be used for improper purposes such as employee bathing.
Possible improper use of machine: by operators creating public health, safety and liability issues.
23Longest industry warranty: no moving parts thus reduced failure, four-year warranty.
Standard industry warranty: multiple moving parts, increased failure potential. Three-year warranty.
