Substantial water savings

The Nor:disk machine provide better efficiency work productivity compared to the old method of pot washing by reducing the most challenging work task which is manual pre-washing. These manual pre-wash chores, nobody likes to perform in today’s work environment. Manual pot washing required strength to scrub the stubborn stains and the older age group people often find it a difficult task for them. We are very happy to have such innovative product in our organization to enjoy the great benefit of this product.
