One item that oftentimes goes hand-in-hand with renting a mobile kitchen is renting a mobile dishwasher unit. At Mobile Kitchens USA, we have trailers and skids of different sizes that can be configured to your specifications. But how do you know what type of mobile dishwasher is best for your needs?
The answer is that it really depends on your operation. There are several factors to consider when it comes to choosing the right type of mobile dishwashing unit for your specific situation. The most important factors to look at are how many meals you plan to serve in a day and what kind of “peak” traffic you are expecting. If you know the answers to these questions, it’s easier to decide what type of dishwasher will best suit your needs.
Let’s delve a little deeper into each type of dishwasher:
Rack Type (Conveyor) Dishwashers
These are typically used in commercial kitchens. The average workload will be a restaurant serving around 1,500 meals during a rush period. A good rack/conveyor dishwasher will be able to clean up to about 400 racks of dishes per hour.
Flight Type Dishwashers
A flight type dishwasher is a larger style of a commercial dishwasher. If you have a high-traffic volume of dishes that need to be cleaned every day (and especially during peak hours), you will want to consider a flight type dishwasher. These are designed to handle as many as 14,000-20,000 dishes per hour. Because they do not require racks, the dishes are placed differently onto a moving belt that feeds into the washing machine. Between this and the larger overall size, they can more efficiently clean large quantities of dishes, glasses and silverware.
The size of the dishwashing trailer you need may depend on the type of dishwasher you require. Flight type dishwashers are bigger in size and will need more space to efficiently operate.
