MEIKO USA Inc. announced the launch of the kube\CS 70; a chemical sanitizing, door-type dishmachine. The first of its kind in MEIKO’s history; the machine is the culmination of years of industry research and feedback from chemical agents, end users and service providers.
For over 80 years, MEIKO has earned a reputation as a major player in the high-temp warewashing arena. The intuitive design, ease-of-use and industry-leading efficiency synonymous with the MEIKO brand endure with the launch of kube\CS 70.
Built with a single-piece of 304 stainless steel, door-construction is the kube’s namesake. A durable, wraparound, cube-like door eliminates the multi-piece door guides of other models.
The digital control panel and dosing pumps are mounted underneath the machine for time-saving operation, maintenance and chemical agent access.
The machine is completely modular and easily disassembled for quick refurbishing. An experienced service agent can have the entire machine completely disassembled in 15 minutes and the motor removed in less than three.
The kube\CS 70 features interchangeable stainless steel wash/rinse arms easily accessed, removed and replaced without the need for tools.
The machine is Energy Star and NSF rated with a maximum throughput of 40* racks per hour. Using a mere 1.18 gallons of water in a 90 second cycle, the kube\CS 70 is one of the most efficient machines on the market.
*Using a user-selected 72 second cycle, kube\CS 70 has a maximum throughput of 50 racks per hour.
“At 50 percent of the commercial warewashing market, low-temp is a huge growth opportunity for us; and it’s also a huge bet,” said David Ciampoli, VP of Sales and Marketing. “The kube\CS 70 was developed by MEIKO engineers across the globe and our folks are famous for setting the bar pretty high. We’ll figure out fast if the market accepts a higher standard in low-temp, or stays with the status quo.”
The kube\CS 70 has several industry-firsts for a low-temp warewasher. In its class, the machine offers the first digital function display, automatic fill and drain cycles, automatic chemical prime and temperature drain, and ergonomic, bottom-mounted controls. The machine’s strong tubular frame and lack of door guide strips add additional industry firsts for low temps.
