DESIGN: Fully automatic, flight-type dishwasher machine­ consisting of a load section with power recirculating­ prewash, an 8 foot power wash, power rinse and final rinse section. Included with each machine­ will be flexible plastic strip curtains to control­ over spray.

CONSTRUCTION: Stainless steel tank and chambers with No. 3 polish on appearance surfaces. Frame, legs and feet to be constructed of stainless steel. Inspection­ doors to be chamber width.

PUMPS: Recirculating stainless steel pumps with stainless steel impellers. Pump housing has easy to remove coverplate for access to impeller. All pumps are self-draining. 150 gpm prewash; 292 gpm power wash/power rinse.

MOTORS: Totally enclosed fan cooled design, with inherent overload protection. Prewash, power wash and power rinse motors to be 3 H.P. each, conveyor 12 H.P. Available in electrical specifications of 200-240/60/3 and 480/60/3.

CONTROLS: A stainless steel control center with electronic digital controls mounted at eye level. ­Power “On/Off” and “Start/Stop” switches integrated into keypad. Digital display indicates door(s) open, low temperature alert, tanks/final rinse temperatures, and other pertinent operating data. ­Additional “Start/ Stop” switches are located at each end of ­machine.

FLIGHT-TYPE CONVEYOR: Stainless steel side links, tie rods and conveyor tracks. Injection molded, resilient Duraflex flight links.

VENT: Single built-in vent duct with dampers mounted­ in cleanable cross duct.

RECIRCULATING PREWASH SECTION: Prewash compartment is fitted with upper and lower wash arms. Prewash flush down for prewash tank bed. Large removable one piece perforated stainless steel screen sloped downward to deep stainless steel scrap basket.

TANK HEAT: Power wash and power rinse tank water­ temperatures are thermostatically controlled. Low water protection is provided. Specify either electric­ or steam heat.

FINAL RINSE: Easily removed final rinse arms.

CONVEYOR DRIVE UNIT: Powered by a 12 H.P. motor­ . Trip mechanism provided on unload section. Jam protection is provided by load sensing switch at drive platform. Conveyor speed adjustment of 4 fpm to 8.5 fpm is provided in the main control box.

DRAINS: Manual, hand operated, located in each tank.

No other control system allows easier monitoring.

The controls are placed in a convenient panel that lets operators verify proper operation and temperatures at a glance.

Digital display ­indicates the unit is on, and ­confirms that the doors are closed. Automatic door interlocks

­prevent the pump and conveyor from operating if the doors are open. Easy-to-read digital display indicates ­accurate temperatures of the 150°F wash, 160°F power rinse, 160°F dual rinse and 180°F final rinse — critical for proper HACCP system record-keeping.

Stainless steel pump is built for long life.

The stainless steel pump housing and impeller offer­ greater durability and long life. The pump motor is totally­ enclosed and fan cooled (TEFC) to protect it from water spray during dishroom clean-up. The pump

is also externally mounted to the frame for added ­rigidity and easy ­access to the clean-out port.

Scrap baskets capture food particles­ and are easy to clean.

The sloped screens that carry scraps to the scrap baskets are steeper, so less soil gets into the

tanks. The basket opening is larger for easy cleaning and basket handles have been ­designed for easy liftout access.

The FT900 Series saves water and energy.

The unit is designed to cut water­ and energy usage,­

yet provide ­effective cleaning­ and sanitizing that meet NSF International­


This is achieved through a ­carefully balanced ratio of ­ water flow to pressure.

At 292 gallons per minute (gpm), the machine offers excellent wetting and ­flooding over ware. Insulated doors also reduce heat loss. The unit’s 2.2 gpm/120 gallons per hour rinse flow rate (the lowest in the industry on a standard ­machine) saves both water and the energy to heat it.

Wider, variable speed ­conveyor ­offers ­ increased throughput.

The conveyor on the FT900 ­Series is wider so it can handle more ware. ­Result: more volume and versatility, quicker work.

Its speed is servicer adjustable­ for the type of ware, soiled condition, or workforce requirements. It can be adjusted­

from 4 to 8.5 feet per minute.

Optional Energy ­ Recovery system.

The optional ­Energy Recovery system captures escaping heat and steam from the ­exhaust air and

uses a heat exchanger to recycle it into energy. This free energy is used to preheat the incoming water­ supply before it enters the booster heater. The cold ground temperature water­ passes through a heat exchanger­ positioned directly in line with the machine’s­ exhaust system to capture the energy

from the exhaust air to elevate the temperature of the ­water to 128° before it enters the booster heater.

Flush arm keeps load end clean.

The load end also has a ­readily removable flush arm to rinse food scraps into the prewash area scrap basket.

Self-draining pumps help keep water clean.

Pumps are self-draining when the machine is shut down, so there is no residual water left in the pumps.

Installation is quick and easy with ­modular ­design, minimal wiring connections, and ­single point vent.

Modular design means the FT900 installs quickly, and reliably. Sections fit through 42" doors. The ­control panel is already in place, premounted to the power wash/power rinse/final rinse section.

Wiring connections are ­minimal, and there is only a single vent connection, saving time and expense. The control box uses a ­“single plane” circuitry ­design for easy acces-

sibility during installation and service. The FT900 is ready to run quickly.
