Join FCSI and fishnick for an engaging conversation between designer and researcher about what can go sideways in real-world dishmachine operations and how to avoid the most common mistakes.

Amin Delagah, the lead dishmachine researcher at the PG&E Food Service Technology Center, will share some of the surprising results he has uncovered during his field research. Connie Dickson, FCSI, will pose a hypothetical dishroom project and together Amin and the designer will talk through the details and arrive at an efficient, cost effective, customer-pleasing design.

  • Learn how you can save your customer big dollars on water and energy by installing a dedicated water meter
  • Find out why it makes sense to spec equipment with advanced built-in diagnostics
  • Learn the energy-saving benefits of designing dishrooms with long entry and exit dishtables that support batch washing of racks
  • Learn how to effectively specify right-sized dishmachines based on the types of wares being washed and why overspray wastes big dollars
  • Find out why pre-rinse operations cost more than you think and why a best-in-class dishmachine can actually have the lowest lifecycle operating cost

The FSTC is proud to
partner with the CRA
