You do not need more water and energy to clean hygienically; you need more thought - this is MEIKOs philosophy. We are continually developing cleaning technologies but are striving not only to advance technology; we have the bigger picture in mind - people, nature and resources. We unequivocally demand sustainable cleaning technology for a clean world. We strive to integrate apparently contradictory demands into a coherent concept. Absolute hygiene and safety on the one hand, frugal use of water and energy on the other. Awareness of costs as well as economical technology and the use of the most modern intelligent technologies. A Herculean task. MEIKO has taken on this challenge, covering all essential aspects of cleaning technology.
The result: M-iQ. A new definition of cleaning technology.
The M-iQ from MEIKO is a milestone in the development of dishwashing systems, designed to create the perfect balance between maximum cleanliness, optimum efficiency and minimal resource consumption. These major advances in dishwashing technology have primarily been achieved through four outstanding MEIKO innovations: intelligent exhaust air management, the ultimate in filter excellence, a coherent energy concept, and superbly user-friendly operation with the CC-Touch glass control panel.
M-iQ Energy Concept
Three-stage heat output
Optimum energy efficiency
All the processes in the M-iQ are designed to recover heat and channel it back into the system through an innovative process of energy management and control. Thanks to its special, dynamically adaptable design, the M-iQ makes carefully metered use of valuable energy. That means lower energy costs as well as all-round improvements to the indoor climate in the wash-up area.
Teamwork between people and machines
Hassle-free dishwashing process
Optimized capacity utilization enables significant savings
The evolution of dishwashing excellence continues: MEIKO has taken the outstanding dishwashing performance of the M-iQ one step further with its revolutionary GreenEyeTechnology®. This enables genuine teamwork between people and machines for the very first time, leading to concentrated efficiency, greater transparency and a more enjoyable working environment. The light shows the way: The M-iQs efficient lighting system helps users make the dishwashing process run more smoothly. It automatically indicates practical steps that can be taken to improve capacity utilization and save resources - similar to the dynamic information provided by a traffic light system. That means that users always know what the M-iQ is doing and exactly how things are going. The M-iQ achieves perfect wash results and all-new levels of cost efficiency by fostering optimum teamwork between people and machines.
- Teamwork between people and machines
- Hassle-free dishwashing process
- Optimized capacity utilization enables significant savings
The intelligent M-iQ GreenCoach system works according to the principle of "detect, react, evaluate, recommend, monitor". This system enables the machine to detect gaps on the conveyor belt between dishware or between baskets. It responds by only activating the rinse function for specific sections of the belt where dishware has been detected - and it can do this while monitoring up to three lines simultaneously. All the gaps on the belts are evaluated with the utmost precision and with a whole new level of
detail, enabling savings of up to 50 percent in both fresh water and rinse agent.
Maximum energy efficiency
Full compliance with DIN standards
No need for exhaust air connection
M-iQ machines use a brand new kind of airflow technology known as MEIKO AirConcept which offers maximum hygiene, full adherence to DIN standards and outstanding energy efficiency. The air is conducted from the hot, clean area of the machine to the cool feed area. This prevents contamination and simultaneously harnesses valuable heat for the dishwashing process. The integrated heat recovery module eliminates the need for a direct exhaust air connection by reducing the quantities of exhaust air to a minimum and making the exhaust air temperatures cooler. As well as the hygiene and environmental benefits, this technology also helps the machine operators by eliminating hot air from the unloading station to create a much more comfortable working environment
Revolutionary filter system
Active dirt removal
Maximum process efficiency
The highlight and core feature of the M-iQ is the M-iQ Filter. This filter system pulls off an amazing feat by achieving optimum cleanliness with significantly reduced water and detergent consumption. It does this by actively removing filtered food waste from the dishwashing process. The filter collects the food residue from the water and then periodically washes it out of the tank - all without requiring any additional water. Thats the unique M-iQ recipe for outstanding cleanliness.
Even at the end of a long day of cleaning, the M-iQ still thinks actively. With the tank water available the M-iQ simply cleans itself. Any food soil is discharged through the M-iQ Filter with just one filling of the pumped final rinse. This continues in cycles until the machine is empty. Now only the few areas that are clearly blue need to be cleaned manually. But after the previous automatic cleaning this is easier and can be done more thoroughly, quickly and reliably than ever before. In other words: no problem - its taken care of.
We dont see perfection as an unattainable vision, but rather as a day-to-day challenge. That belief has enabled MEIKO engineers to develop a whole new kind of additional filter stage - the GreenFilter. This actively removes even the tiniest particles of dirt from the dishwashing machine, achieving unparalleled levels of cleanliness. Thanks to the activ GreenFilter the machine also uses less fresh water, leading to savings of at least 10 percent. And it only deploys detergent and rinse agent where they are actually needed.
The M-iQ takes a dynamic approach to managing complex tasks: It injects doses of chemicals which are precisely tailored to variations in the speed of the conveyor belt and changing concentrations of dirt on the washware. GreenEye-Technology® reduces the cost of detergent and rinse agent to a minimum. And that also applies to energy costs because the entire dishwashing process only uses what is really necessary at each moment in time.
M-iQ Washing Dynamics
High pressure washing - reduced consumables consumption
New computer-designed wash nozzles for optimal spray pattern geometry
30% improved cleaning power
M-iQ Tank Management
Intelligent water level control
Efficient use of resources
Economical in operation
Uniquely, the new type of M-iQ Filter works in every tank - together they make the perfect team. The show-stopper:
The system works against the working direction - the clean area stays truly clean and the residual particles collect far away from the hygienically clean washware. We do not even leave the water level of the tank to chance. Using the M-iQ Filter we transfer water into the adjacent tank or into any tank that needs it, depending on its operational status.
MEIKOs well-known high cleaning capacity has been significantly increased and optimised in the M-iQ. Its washing dynamics achieve levels which have not previously been possible. Maximum cleaning power with a third less consumables and energy consumption. A clean achievement.
M-iQ AirComfort Drying
Advantage of decoupled air flow
Excellent drying results
Optimal energy efficiency
Maximal ease of use
The air flow of the M-iQ drying is effectively decoupled from the wash section by functional equalisation openings - AirComfort - which achieve excellent drying results while maintaining the optimal level of energy consumption in every phase of operation. This also provides a maximal ease of use at the discharge section.
M-iQ Control Concept
All the information you need - whenever you need it
The BlueVision control system software is the brain of the M-iQ. You can control all the dishwashing functions from the CC-Touch glass display, safe in the knowledge that it only shows the menu items you can actually use at each point in time. By removing any confusing or unnecessary options from the screen, CC-Touch prevents users from operating the machine incorrectly. The user-friendly control system includes a large TFT colour display with a graphical user interface which helps the operator check that
everything is running smoothly. Each user group (kitchen managers, dishwashing personnel, serving staff, etc.) can use the ergonomic M-iQ display to summon up comprehensive information at the touch of a button and save data for subsequent use. Authorised staff members can easily access the control system and systematically define steps to optimise the automated processes. The M-iQ colour display offers a very high resolution which renders graphics, icons and fonts with exceptional brilliance and sharpness.
M-iQ System Diagnostics
Verified standards of hygiene
Enables users to plan start of wash cycle
Guaranteed wash results
Easy - reliable - secure. Simply set up a wireless Bluetooth link to your machines control unit and you can transfer and save all the key system data to a mobile device (CC-Log data module) in a matter of seconds - including all the data required to keep an operating log in accordance with DIN SPEC 10534.
M-iQ technology offers the additional option of browsing comprehensive data either online (CC-Insight) or on a mobile device (CC-Log). One of our latest features is one-click economy management (optional). Precise readings of your energy and resource consumption (water, detergent, rinse agent) give you detailed insights into the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your dishwashing process. The CC-Insight software module with economy management allows you to view your consumption patterns in either graphical or tabular form. That gives you the data you need to analyse and optimise your machines capacity utilisation and individual wash processes. M-iQ. High-IQ dishwashing - intelligent access to all the data you need.
Optimum deployment of staff and machines
Unparalleled cleanliness and cost-efficiency
Takes the strain off kitchen managers
The M-iQ with revolutionary GreenEye-Technology® creates new synergies between people and machines. It uses a more dynamic and transparent strategy to continuously optimise the dishwashing process. The result is an unparalleled level of efficiency and optimum capacity utilisation. And these synergy effects even extend beyond the machine to encompass the whole kitchen area: The dovetailing of the operators and the M-iQ into an outstandingly efficient, self-contained unit takes the strain off kitchen managers, allowing them to focus entirely on their leadership duties. Less supervision is required - plus the wash-up area boosts its eco-friendly credentials. GreenEye-Technolgy® never loses sight of the big picture and keeps everything under control. Thats a green light for a cleaner and more economical future!
