HOBART's CLIMATE-PLUS energy-saving system for conveyor dishwashers has attracted the attention of various award juries and was recently awarded the dishwashing "BEST of Market" for its innovation.
Offenburg, Germany – After HOBART received several awards from trade magazines and industry associations last year for the development of its CLIMATE-PLUS energy-saving system (including the Catering Star, Cooking Award and Star Award), the world market leader in commercial warewashing technology can now call yet another award their own: "BEST of Market". The Offenburg-based company convinced the jury with CLIMATE-PLUS, which significantly reduces energy consumption when washing dishes and was awarded in the energy efficiency category.
Founder and initiator of the "BEST of Market" is B&L Media Company with the trade magazines GVmanager, first class, 24 Stunden Gastlichkeit and street FOOD business. At the beginning of the year the publishing house called upon its readers to vote for the best suppliers via online survey. The results are based on votes by representatives from catering and gastronomy who voted based on their practical experience.
Flight-type dishwashers significantly reduce energy loss
The newly developed CLIMATE-PLUS energy saving system consists of a combination of drain heat recovery and modern heat pump technology. In total, up to 70 per cent of the energy from the waste water and up to 100 per cent of the energy from the exhaust air is fed back into the wash cycle: valuable energy which is left unused in traditional systems. The system lowers energy consumption and reduces operating costs while achieving a constant exhaust air temperature of 17 °C. The hot waste water passes 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.
