Why buy the Direct Catering ED50 Front Loading Dishwasher?

"Fast, Economical, Robust, Hygienic" DC Economy Dishwashers.

The DC ED50 is part of the Economy Range designed to tackle all the harshest marks and rigorous demands whilst being cost effective and economical. The wash cycles last only 180 seconds allowing up to 20 baskets full of dishes to be washed every hour. Maximum productivity is key when in a busy environment. 

Simple controls allow you to maximise efficiency reducing simple errors and making staff training a quick and easy process. A heavy duty wash pump ensures each and every dish is sparkling clean, hygienic and ready to use after each meal service. 

Innovative rinse arms increase the initial response time by 30% and rotation speed by 20% when compared with other units in the same price range. The usable wash height is 305mm allowing large dishes to be stood inside the machine, cleaning them to perfection. The washing power comes from a jet powered spray arm on the top of the wash tank.

Compatible with either hot or cold feed. Maximum water temperature of 60°C. There must also be sufficient water pressure and flow rate.

Customer Q&A

Product Questions

  • Submit your question to our community.

what is a break tank and drain pump
The break tank option on warewashing machines is a mechanism employed to prevent water from within the equipment flowing back in to the water supply. This prevents any contamination and is vital to establishments such as care homes or catering businesses.
A drain pump is used in circumstances where waste water from the machine needs to be pumped in an upwards direction in order to flow to the drain.
