This training program has two parts. Part one identifies features and benefits, and provides an operation overview of the Hobart model UW50 utensil washer. Part two is the UW50 utensil washer operator training program in its entirety. The Hobart UW50 utensil washer features an all stainless steel design that ensures durability, meaning year after year of dependable operation. This UW50 is a heavy-duty, fully-automatic, front-loading machine and is ideally suited for the limited space available in super markets, institutions, restaurants, and bakeries. The large strip door system provides an upper door section that automatically slides upward as the lower section is pulled down. In addition, a stainless steel pull out rack provides easy loading of the largest utensils. For example, the UW50 handles 16 large bun pans, meat lugs, deli containers, and mixer bowls as large as 140 quarts. The UW50 is 47" wide, which makes loading and unloading simple and means an easy, efficient, and productive clean-up operation. The UW50 also features dual, revolving upper and lower wash and rinse arms. These four non-clogging wash arms and four rinse arms with removable jets clean and sanitize with a direct spray that covers the full rack. They even remove easily as a unit without tools. A stainless steel sloping strainer system directs food soil to the deep, perforated basket, keeping water in the wash tank cleaner. The basket and strainers remove easily for cleaning, saving time during clean up. A door actuated drain closer automatically closes when the door is lowered. This reduces operator error and increases water savings. The UW50 also features an adjustable timer with two, four, or six minute wash cycles. Each wash cycle is followed by a five second dwell and 19 to 22 second rinse. A two minute wash cycle allows 18 racks to be washed in an hour, the four minute cycle, 12 racks, and the six minute cycle, nine racks. Cap molded dial thermometers provide easy-to-read, eye-level observation of the wash and rinse cycle temperatures. In addition, the UW50 offers a choice of energy-efficient 10 KW electric heat or a steam injector at 15-50 pounds per square inch and 75 pounds per hour steam requirement. Connections are provided for easy hook up of detergent equipment. This reduces installation and plumbing costs. The wash tank has a 27 gallon capacity and requires two to three minutes to fill and has a four gallon per cycle rinse water consumption rate and 38 gallons per minute drain flow. All of these features add up to savings on labor, energy, and water. To begin operation, make sure the overflow pipe, strainer pan, overflow cover, and strainer basket are properly installed. Then, close the drain and turn the selector switch to fill. Press the start button to fill the machine. This takes between two and three minutes. Once the unit is filled, open the doors and insert the utensils into the wash chamber and close the doors. Set the selector switch to the desired wash cycle time. Press the start button. The cycle light illuminates, indicating that a time cycle is in progress. When a cycle ends, raise the doors and remove the rack from the machine. Repeat this procedure until all the utensils washed and sanitized. Part two of this video contains the UW50 utensil washer operator training video. Request part number 328563 for a copy of this program. This program is intended to assist in training the operator of the Hobart model UW50 utensil washer and is a supplement to the instruction manual. The instruction manual provided with your machine has the number ML-27838 on the cover. Be sure the ML number agrees with the number stamped on the data plate on the machine. For more information, always refer to the instruction manual. Replacement manuals can be obtained from your local Hobart office. Warning: electrical and grounding connections must comply with the applicable portions of the national electrical code and/or other local electrical codes. Disconnect the electrical power supply and place a tag on the disconnect switch indicating the circuit is being worked on. Plumbing connections must comply with applicable sanitary, safety, and plumbing codes. Disconnect electrical power to the machine before beginning any cleaning or maintenance procedures. The Hobart UW50 utensil washer features a front-loading, split-door design with a pull out rack. This means easy loading of large bun pans, meat lugs, deli containers, and mixer bowls as large as 140 quarts. This makes your clean-up operation easy, efficient, and productive. In the next few minutes, you will learn model UW50 operation procedures including: parts identification, set up and assembly, operating procedures, cleaning procedures, and maintenance procedures. Let's take a moment to become familiar with the parts of the UW50 utensil washer and their locations. Operation of each part will be explained later in the program. Before beginning set up and assembly, check that the unit is properly installed and plumbing connections comply with applicable sanitary, safety, and plumbing codes. To properly operate the UW50 utensil washer, you must begin with set up and assembly. To begin, open the doors by placing your hand on the handle. Both doors open at the same time. Then, install the overflow pipe in the drain outlet and check that it is properly seated. Next, install the strainer pan, making sure that the opening in the corner of the pan fits around the capillary tube. Now, install the overflow cover located close to the front of the machine and install the strainer basket. Now that set up is complete, let's take a moment to discuss proper rack loading. Mixing bowls as large as 140 quarts can be placed directly on the flat bottom frame rack to ensure thorough cleaning. For smaller items, use the grid insert rack and spread the items loosely across the bottom to allow the water to reach all items. Tray support insert racks may be used for bun pans or trays. Two 20" by 20" dish racks may be used with the frame rack, providing you add flexibility in your utensil washing operation. These racks may be purchased as an optional accessory from your local Hobart office or your authorized Hobart dealer. Keep in mind, stainless steel should clean quickly and easily if the soiling condition is not baked on. Copper utensils may require polishing after prolonged exposure to utensil washer cleaning. In addition, it may be necessary to scrub or prewash some hard-to-remove substances, which may not come clean in the utensil washer. To begin operation of the utensil washer, close the drain by lowering the door onto the drain lever, or you can close the drain by hand. Then, turn the selector switch to fill and press start. This begins the fill process. The timed fill takes about three minutes. After the timed fill is complete, open the doors, insert the rack into the wash chamber, and close the doors. Next, set the selector switch to the desired wash cycle time. The wash cycle duration can be set for two, four, or six minutes. Each wash cycle is followed by a five second pause and a 19 second rinse. Press start after you select a wash cycle time. Notice that the cycle light is illuminated, indicating that a timed cycle is in process. During the wash cycle, check the wash thermometer to make sure the water is at the correct operating temperature, between 150 and 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Following the wash cycle and five second pause, the 19 second rinse cycle begins. Check the rinse thermometer for the correct temperature operation. It should be at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. When the program is complete, raise the doors and remove the rack from the machine. Warning: disconnect electrical power to the machine before cleaning. Place a tag at the disconnect switch indicating the circuit is being worked on. It is recommended that the utensil washer be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each working shift, or at least daily. To begin cleaning, turn the selector switch off. This turns the power off to the machine. Disconnect electric power to the machine before cleaning. If you have a steam unit, manually close the steam valve. With the power off, open the doors. Now, lift the drain lever to drain the tank. Remove the strainer basket and strainer pan. Empty debris from the pan and basket into a trash can, disposer, or pulping system, following the instructions set up by your supervisor. Then, thoroughly wash and rinse the strainer pan and basket. Be careful not to bang the strainers on the table to remove food soil. This could damage them and allow food soil to enter the wash water because a tight seal isn't maintained. With the tank empty, lower the overflow tube to close the drain. After reconnecting power to the machine, set the selector switch to fill and press the start button. The machine will fill and rinse debris into the tank. Once the tank is full, turn the selector switch to off and disconnect power to the machine. Then, open the doors and lift up on the drain lever to drain the machine. Now, remove the overflow cover and the overflow tube. Thoroughly wash and rinse the overflow tube inside and out. When finished, reinstall the overflow tube. With a mild soap and water solution, thoroughly cleanse and flush the interior of the machine. Once the interior is clean, leave the doors open to allow the interior to dry and air out. After the pans and basket are dry, carefully reinstall the overflow cover, strainer pan, and strainer basket. Warning: disconnect electrical power and place a tag at the disconnect switch indicating that the circuit is being worked on before doing any maintenance. The motor has permanently sealed bearings and requires no lubrication. To check wash and rinse arm operation, first disconnect the electrical power to the machine. Then, rotate the arms. They should turn freely and continue to turn for a few seconds after being whirled by hand. Remove any obstructions that are causing improper operation. If the strainer pan and basket are not properly in place, food particles or toothpicks may clog the wash arm nozzles. If needed, the wash and rinse arms remove easily for cleaning. To remove the upper wash arms, unscrew the hand knob. Carefully remove the upper wash and rinse arms. Use this procedure for both sets of upper arms. You can remove any obstruction by cleaning the arms under running water. Replace the upper wash and rinse arms by holding them in place and tightening the hand knob. To clean the lower wash arms, begin by lifting off the lower rinse arms. Now unscrew the rinse arm bearing pin and lift off the lower wash arm. There is no need to remove the spacer on the lower wash arm shaft. As with the upper arms, clean the wash arms under running water. Finally, replace the lower wash arm, replace the rinse arm bearing pin, and replace the rinse arm. Use the same procedure for both sets of lower arms. This concludes operator training for the Hobart UW50 utensil washer. For more information regarding troubleshooting or operation of a UW50 utensil washer, always refer to your instruction manual.
