Researching a high temp washer for your restaurant? Trying to decide between high temp and low temp dishwashing and sanitizing options? Read on to help inform your decision.
High temp dishwashers require – you guessed it, a high temperature of 180 degrees Fahrenheit to sanitize those dishes. Your normal water heater should never be set that high (in general never above 120 degrees) so the high temp option requires something called a booster heater. The booster heater cranks out the hot hot water specifically and only for your high temp washing needs.
With the booster heater, you have the option of gas or electric. At Reliable Water Services, we recommend the gas option – mainly because the money savings are drastic. But the electric options do take up less space, and also don’t need to be vented. So there are a few things to consider.
Another benefit of the high temp washer is that you don’t have to worry about those sanitizing chemicals required by the low temp dishwashers. These harsh chemicals require proper training and usage, as well as a storage location. And, they are pretty tough on the environment – definitely not the “green” option.
It’s important to decide if a high temperature dishwasher is right for your business. Hopefully these articles can help with that decision!
