Meiko has claimed that its new KA Series rack-conveyor dishwasher has a feature in common with aeroplanes.
It says that the sealing tape that was used in the manufacturing process, consisting of a unique silicone foam with acrylic adhesive on one side, is also used in aerospace technology.
According to the manufacturer, when the KA Series rack-conveyor dishwasher was being developed, its modular design posed a challenge for its engineers.
It proved difficult to seal large sections of metal sheeting across adjacent modules, especially on uneven surfaces.
Furthermore it was essential that the sealant was multi-purpose, easy to fit, durable and able to withstand wide swings in temperatures – since the water temperatures inside commercial dishwashers can range from 140⁰F to 185⁰F.
Meiko says that research revealed that seals in airplanes must meet similar demands, so its engineers tested, and then chose, aeronautical sealing tape.
And the company claims that the sealing tape is right in line with the Meiko promise of using only the best materials available.
The company said: “At Meiko, we’re continually developing new cleaning technologies, always with the bigger picture in mind: people, nature and resources.
“Meiko takes on the challenge to create the world’s best cleaning technology with the introduction of the KA Series rack-conveyor dishwasher.”
