LG’s TrueSteam™ Dishwasher
KOTA KINABALU, Feb. 4, 2015 – LG Electronics (LG) will be showcasing its latest steam dishwasher equipped with the company’s unique TrueSteam™ technology at the 2015 LG InnoFest (Innovation Festival) held in Malaysia from February 4 to 5. The innovative dishwasher is driven by LG’s powerful TrueSteam™ technology which provides users with the powerful clean that they demand, but also is energy efficient enough to garner an A+++ Eco-rating. The advanced dishwasher also implements a variety of healthcare features such as LG’s UV sanitization technology, while its SmartRack™ organization system boosts user-convenience.
LG’s TrueSteam™ Technology
The dishwasher’s TrueSteam™ technology is activated when the Steam Power mode engages. High-temperature steam particles are discharged from carefully aimed pressure nozzles so that soil particles are dispersed and dishes are left cleaner. Steam temperature and pressure are managed by the built-in steam generator, which is powerful enough to virtually eliminate tough soil residue, whether burnt or dried.
For dishes that require a softer touch, the Steam Care offers a more gentle steam clean. Because there may not be a sufficient quantity of delicate items to fill a single load, the dishwasher’s Steam Dual Spray feature enables different water pressures to be used on the upper and lower racks so that multiple types of dishes can be washed at once to help save water, energy and time.
After the wash cycle has completed, the dishwasher employs a unique UV lamp sanitization process that eliminates up to 99.9 percent of any remaining bacteria. This feature, combined with LG’s TrueSteam™ technology, provides more hygienic results and allows consumers to leave their dishes inside the washer for up to four hours without any renewed bacteria growth. Taking approximately 25 minutes and effective for up to 95 minutes, the UV sterilization cycle is programmed to run a second time if the dishwasher door has not been opened after two hours.
For greater organization options, the unique SmartRack™ system allows for various rack configurations. This design feature allows the interior of the dishwasher to be more flexible, maximizing usable space and accommodating odd-shaped bowls, pans, platters and other items. All three tiers are designed to contain different types of dishes: the lower rack is suitable for dishes, bowls, pots and pans, while the upper rack is designed for cups and wineglasses. The third rack is intended for items such as espresso cups, utensils and kitchen tools. In addition, the third rack is height adjustable, which adds flexibility by making room for oversized utensils such as spatulas, whisks or salad tongs. All in all, the SmartRack™ system sets a new benchmark for loading convenience.
LG’s Inverter Direct Drive Motor
The dishwasher’s Energy performance (A+++) is underpinned by LG’s Inverter Direct Drive. This advanced motor technology optimizes the power needed for each load by directly transferring energy from the motor to the water spray system through a simplified structure.
LG’s Silence On technology, combined with layers of sound dampening insulation, help reduce the dishwasher’s noise levels to just 38dB. Furthermore, LG’s Smart Diagnosis™ feature helps customer service representatives quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues, limiting costly and inconvenient service visits.
“Our consumers have indicated that they are frustrated by the time that they need to spend rinsing dishes off before they can be placed in the dishwasher,” said Seong-jin Jo, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “LG’s TrueSteam™ technology gives users this time back by virtually eliminating the need to rinse dishes prior to using the dishwasher. The TrueSteam™ dishwasher’s enhanced cleaning power and reduced energy consumption are just some of the many ways that LG uses superior innovations to make life much more convenient. With operational noise levels as low as 38dB, the new dishwasher keeps the home quiet and peaceful as well.”
