Energy costs are rising. Right now, nobody can say how they will develop in the future. Experts agree on one thing though: for now, costs are staying high for water, chemical products and especially for electricity. It is a relief that technology is moving forward. These days, we can use innovative technology to reduce electricity, water and chemical consumption while still washing hygienically.
Replacing an old machine with new, energy-efficient technology can reduce your operating costs. It is worth taking a close look at an operating cost analysis.
Model input data for the analysis:
Energy price: 0.25 €/kWh
Water price: 4 €/m3
Price of chemical products: 4 €/kg (detergent & rinse aid)
Operating hours: 6 hours/day
Operating days: 365 days/year

Saving energy has never been so easy: with the unique new CLIMATE-PLUS energy saving system, consisting of a combination of waste water heat recovery and state-of-the-art heat pump technology, energy losses during warewashing are enormously reduced. In total, up to 70 % of the energy from the waste water and up to 100 % of the energy from the exhaust air is returned to the wash process – valuable energy which is left unused in traditional systems.
Here’s how it works:
The warm waste water is passed through a heat exchanger unit, where the incoming fresh supply water is heated by the waste water using the counterflow principle. At the same time, energy from the hot exhaust air is also fed back into the wash cycle. Saving energy with the system!
Your benefits at a glance
And this is how it works:
A sensor in the wash tank continuously checks the quality of the wash water and regenerates it as necessary. Depending on the extent of soiling, water from the rinse is briefly fed into the main wash tank as required. The chemical dosing is adjusted to the tank regeneration.
Save up to 60 % of water: The fresh water rinse is used to rinse off the cleaning chemicals. Distribution of the water is the crucial factor with regard to the required volume of water.
The patented fresh water rinse is equipped with special precision nozzles. These disperse the rinse water into a fine curtain of water and thus form a water film on the wash ware. As a result of the ideal water distribution, this micro-thin film is sufficient to rinse off the wash water. In addition to the conventional rinsing, the fresh water rinse sprays the wash ware also with lateral spray arms.
Reduce the energy loss of your dishwashing system by up to 30 % with the patented and standard energy management.
In this system, the hot machine zones are enclosed by the cooler zones such as pre-wash and drying. The resulting temperature curtain ensures that air exchange can only take place within the machine. The PREMAX is characterised by a special temperature profile and exploits this principle in an optimum manner.
