Winterhalter Innovates With Smart, Efficient Warewashing Heat Pump

Winterhalter’s PT Series warewashers, already impressive when it comes to cleaning results, speed and economic efficiency, now set a benchmark for a better kitchen climate and lower operating costs. Its rack pass-through warewashers are the first to offer the newly developed, highly efficient ClimatePlus heat pump, which takes the thermal energy from the machine and the air in the kitchen, using it to warm the tank water and rinse water. Tests show that when washing with the PT ClimatePlus, the heat given off into the room is reduced by 75% compared to a standard PT model. The PT ClimatePlus uses 53% less energy than a standard model without a heat-recovery system. By slashing running costs, the ClimatePlus quickly pays for itself.
