Bars - Rhima Australia

Manual washing and even worse manual drying of glass ware only heightens the risk of transmission of bacteria and viruses. It is a proven fact that mechanical washing with detergent, hot water and RO rinse reduces the biofilm to safe levels. Rhima bar glasswashers are most efficient for your bar, read more below on why.

Why does your bar need a commercial glasswasher?

  • Cost & efficiency
  • Hygiene
  • Labour saving
  • Water & power savings
  • Reduces need for disposables

A bar-size dishwasher can solve all of these problems – and in impeccable style, too. Thanks to these, you no longer have to spend a fortune hiring more people and ensure that every dish that would come out is as clean as it should be.

The High Sparkle machines comply with the stringent DIN 10511 standards which allows piece of mind. To maintain optimum hygiene each High Sparkle machine has a hygiene program. At the end of the day simply activate the self cleaning hygiene program and leave the door slightly ajar.

No more polishing

Australasia has the safest and best drinking water in the world, however this does not mean it is the best water in which to wash and polish glass ware and cutlery. Due to the often high mineral content, the clean final rinse water in a glass washer will leave unsightly marks on glass ware and cutlery when dry. In the past these spots were removed by manually polishing the glasses. However this is a labour intensive and a potentially unhygienic and dangerous practice.

Most bar glasswashing machines add a rinse additive to promote drying. Unless the rinse aid is adjusted to suit glass ware the dosage is often too high and can also leave marks and stains on glass ware and cutlery. It can also have a detrimental effect by reducing the effervescence of sparkling beverages. Detergent used for normal dishwashing can also be too aggressive for glass washing.

The High Sparkle system is designed by Rhima to suit most typical water conditions. With our plug and play High Sparkle system you will save money in reduced labour and breakages. You will also have better infection control practices and hygiene.

Water treatment and Reverse Osmosis

To achieve a polish free result the combination of Rhima’s High Sparkle glass washer and specialist detergents rely on perfect water conditions. Our RO-50 unit guarantees perfect results. Depending on where you live, tap water has certain levels of minerals and salts that when dried leave marks and stains on glassware and cutlery.

The RO-50 has been specifically designed to utilise cold tap water and by passing it through specially designed membrane filters under very high pressure most of these minerals and salts are removed, giving 99.9% perfect water for rinsing. In high sediment areas we recommend the use of our special carbon filters to pre-filter the incoming water and extending the life of the RO membranes.

Dryer - 10x quicker than air drying

When using an RO unit we do not recommend using a rinse aid in the final rinse water as rinse additives degrades the results. Hence the drying time of RO washed glasses can be longer than normal. To assist with quicker drying Rhima has a range of dryers. Simply pull the rack straight out of the machine put it on the dryer and drying time will be at least 10x quicker than air drying.

The High Sparkle bar glasswashers are reliable:

  • Specially constructed integrated wash and rinse arms are made of stainless steel for durability.
  • Self cleaning & non-clogging nozzles ensuring the optimum spray pattern reaching all critical areas.
  • Anti-drip screw connector stopping drips on glasses.
  • Light easy to open door with 4 positions: open, 2 ventilation stops & closed. The ventilation stops optimises drying and prevents condensation without having to keep the door fully open.
  • Soft start feature that protects delicate glassware from sudden movements when the machine starts up, preventing costly chipping & breakage.
  • Plug & play machine.

Efficient, easy to use, and endlessly reliable, the High Sparkle 50 and High Sparkle 40 promise to revolutionise the way you look at dishwashing.

  • Can you run a dishwasher without hot water?

    Yes, you can run a dishwasher without a hot water connection. All Rhima’s machines have a “Thermo stop,” which means the cycle will not complete if the temperature has not reached the safe minimum for sanitation. Cycle times may be longer. For machines connected to cold water, if possible, connect to the 3-phase power supply.

  • Does my machine comply with HACCP Guidelines?

    Rhima has developed a unique monitoring program that takes safety, hygiene, and operational conditions into account. Once correctly set up, your machine will comply with HACCP guidelines. At least once per year, we recommend doing a safety hygiene test on the dishwasher. Rhima technicians are specially trained in carrying out preventative maintenance and HACCP testing on Rhima equipment. It includes temperature checks with a calibrated thermometer, residual protein swabs (before and after), and complete preventative maintenance on the machine.

  • Can I wash other items in glasswashers (i.e., cups and saucers?)

    Yes, you can wash other items such as plates, cups, and saucers in glasswashers. Rhima glasswashers use the same washing technology as our larger dishwashers, where you can wash cups, saucers, and lightly soiled plates. It is not recommended to wash dinner plates unless it is the last cycle before emptying the dirty water and cleaning the machine. If your glasswasher has been set up with our High Sparkle system, then we recommend use for glasses only.
