Do your restaurant dishwashing needs require hot hot water? Considering a high temp dishwashing set up? Wondering if you should go with the low temp option?
When it comes to commercial dishwashing needs, the options are generally between low and high temp dishwashers. Low temp washers require sanitizing chemicals to get things clean. High temp set ups require that hot hot water. Specifically, the water must be heated to 180 degrees Fahrenheit, however normally your water heater should be set not to run about 120 degrees. So how do you get the hot water needed to sanitize those dishes? The answer: a booster heater.
Booster heaters do just what it sounds like – they boost the water temps temporarily so you get that 180 degree water you need. The heaters themselves can be either gas or electric, depending on what’s best for your needs. In general the gas versions are cheaper to run, and require less maintenance – which basically means you save money in the long term by going with gas. However, the electric units are cheaper to purchase up front, and do not require venting which can save a lot when it comes to your buildout. They also take up less space.
