No more polishing. Brilliance inside.

The UC Excellence-i with integrated reverse osmosis device makes it easy to run under counter cutlery washers with osmosis water even in narrow counter areas. Because the reverse osmosis system is fully integrated into the UC-S / UC-M,  the space requirement is only limited by the dimensions of the warewasher.

The UC Excellence- i delivers a perfect combination of under counter cutlery washer and reverse osmosis. The water treatment process is fully integrated into the wash process to deliver flawless wash results everytime.

When it comes to longer wash breaks, the AquaOpt function prevents the return of salt deposits and the negative impact this has on the washing result. Optimum water is always used when washing to achieve the best wash result and sparkling cutlery.

The warewasher’s touch display is used to control communication and the operation of UC Excellence-i devices. The operational status is shown on the display – this allows immediate reaction to faults.

The legally required water safety device (WSD) is already built into the device. Just connect power and water and the warewasher is ready to go. This doesn’t involve additional installation work or extra costs.

UC Excellence-iPlus models are fitted with an integrated softener. Thanks to the VarioAqua function, various water qualities can be stored in the washing programs. The integrated softener provides softened water when filling and self-cleaning. Osmosis water is subsequently used for the first wash onwards. The softener increases the life span of the osmosis membrane and the performance. A plus in the economic efficiency of the UC Excellence-iPlus.
