Winterhalter is using the Casual Dining Show to showcase its latest warewasher at the Building Design Centre, London in February.
Speed, running costs and quality are watchwords of the casual dining sector, according to Winterhalter, and it believes the show is the ideal platform from which to launch the new PT ClimatePlus warewasher.
Winterhalter claims the new warewasher cuts energy consumption by over 50%, achieves superb wash results and actually cools the kitchen climate.
Now, with the newly developed ClimatePlus heat pump, the company believes it is setting new benchmarks in improved kitchen climate and lower operating costs.
When washing with the PT ClimatePlus, the temperature and water content of the exhaust air from the machine are considerably reduced.
When the air in the kitchen reaches 25°C the heat pump sends the PT’s exhaust air, cooled to around 18°C, back into the room.
As a result, the working environment improves noticeably. Independent trials carried out by equipment testing specialist TÜV SÜD in Germany showed that, when washing with the PT ClimatePlus, the heat given off into the room was reduced by 75% compared to a standard PT model.
Furthermore, in many cases there is no need to fit an exhaust air hood for the machine, giving additional cost savings.
The ClimatePlus heat pump not only uses energy from the steam in the machine’s interior to warm the wash water, it also uses energy from warm air drawn in from the kitchen.
An electrically operated latch controls the switching between the two modes of operation to maximise energy capture.
To illustrate the cleaning power of Winterhalter machines there will be a glass-fronted UC machine on the stand.
This shows visitors the vario power jets working on heavily stained glasses, says Winterhalter.
