Dishwash Monitors

Posted on
Until now most producers of dishwash detergent, dishwashers and related industries used subjective measuring systems with home made testmaterials. So in fact the Dishwash tests are decades behind on the detergent tests being performed.CFT aims to change that fact. Therefore we introduced the first Dishwash Monitors a few years ago.C.F.T. produces stained melamine resin based tiles suitable for monitoring bleach and cleaning efficiency from dishwashing products.One of the main benefits of our melamine Dishwasher Monitors is the fast production method and the low in batch variety. This is definitely the case if you compare it with home made products. Even though you use a prescribed method of production, all kinds of variables will be different. And most of all the current in home production methods are very time consuming. Using the CFT Dishwash Method you can save a lot of time and money. There has not been any research showing that the use of melamine tiles will give different results than using real dishes. On the contrary the CFT Dishwash Monitors give a more consistent result. If you are interested in discussing this issue we would like to invite you to contact us at or +31 10 460 39 55. Free samples are available at request.

The most important benefit is the fact that the CFT Dishwash Monitors are Objectively Measurable and you can perform reliable Quantitative Analyses. Current methods use mainly visual comparison/scoring. Further advantage is the widespread authority of standard available monitors. Claims can be verified or contradicted.
