MENOMONEE FALLS, WIS. - Alto Shaam is launching new water treatment and cleaning solution accessories to help operators further reduce labor costs. 

The company’s new reverse osmosis systems, available in three different sizes, extend product lifetimes and protect oven investment. They can be integrated with Alto-Shaam Combitherm® ovens, as the preferred solution for treating water that contains sediments, chlorides, minerals and other total dissolved solids (TDS), as well as removing chlorine and other corrosives to help minimize water-related diseases. 

“Now so, more than ever, foodservice providers and outlets are looking at ways to reduce cost,” said Jeff McMahon, senior director of product management for Alto Shaam. “Labor, and specifically the cost and availability of labor, remains an enormous operational challenge, and manual cleaning absorbs huge amounts of staff time. These new product accessories have been specifically designed to help overcome this challenge and help reduce costs, as well as maintaining product lifetime and ensuring all equipment is safe to use.” 

Designed for use in liquid injection self-cleaning ovens, Alto-Shaam has also launched a new high-strength cleaner which is designed to cut through grease, fats and other cooking debris. Paired with the automatic self-cleaning feature on its Combitherm® and self-cleaning rotisserie ovens, the cleaner eliminates the high labor costs associated with manual cleaning. 

For ovens without a self-cleaning feature, a new non-caustic oven cleaner is also available. The spray on foaming cleaner, which is safe to use on all Alto-Shaam equipment, eliminates the need for labor-intensive scrubbing.
