The new Energy STR single-tank rack conveyor warewasher from Winterhalter is claimed to save operators up to £1,050 per year in energy consumption if used for six hours a day - which translates into savings of more than £10,000 over the lifetime of the machine.
The air heat recovery system uses energy from waste steam to heat incoming cold water, cutting energy use by 6kW per hour and minimising the steam released into the kitchen.
It provides a big capacity in a small footprint, measuring just 1,300mm long but processing up to 110 racks per hour. A
special programme ensures the best results and processes for different items - for example, the glasswasher setting reduces temperature to 65°C to prolong the service life of the glass. T
he rack-activated zones adapt to changing volumes, so fewer resources and costs are incurred during quieter lulls, while the rapid programme increases conveyor speed at peak times.
