Energy+ = BIG savings in dishwashing

Multi-award-winning machine debuts at HEFMA 2008

Health Estates & Facilities Management Association 2008 conference and exhibition,

21 & 22 May, 2008, Chesford Grange, Kenilworth

Winterhalter's GS500 'Energy ' can save energy, water & money Winterhalter will spotlight its award-winning GS 500 Energy+  pass through dishwasher at HEFMA 2008. Energy+ recycles exhaust heat from the steam and hot wastewater and returns it to heat the incoming cold water. This not only slashes heating costs, it also removes the need for a separate extractor hood and makes wash area working conditions much easier, because there is very little waste steam when the machine is opened.

It does all this without affecting performance – the biggest machine in the range, the GS 515 Energy+, can process up to 70 extra large racks (500 x 600mm) every hour, delivering hygienically clean results.

Winterhalter glass and dishwashers are available with preferential discount from the OGC under contract number A126449A. The Seg numbers are 99/6; 99/8; and 99/1.
Energy+ is part of Winterhalter’s overall energy reduction initiative, called IRT (intelligent resource technology). IRT is designed to take warewashing into a new generation of low running costs and ease of use.

Inside the Energy+ system is an air-to-water heat exchanger that uses the waste steam from a GS 500 pass through dishwasher to heat the incoming fresh water. An additional water-to-water heat exchanger recycles the heat from the waste steam, taking the heat from the wastewater and using it to heat the incoming fresh water.

The Energy+ system reduces the total connected load by up to 6 kW. The company estimates it can save as much as £1,095 per year on a single machine, and this saving can only rise along with electricity costs.

Energy+ has won a number of international awards, including the FCSI Award, the Innovation Award at Sirha in Lyon, The Caterer Excellence Award at Hotelympia 2008 and the Special Award for Efficiency atIntergastra 2008.

Winterhalter provides a total solution for warewashing, from pre-sales advice to after-sales service, training and maintenance, as well as a budget-friendly rental scheme.

Alongside its market-leading dish and glasswashers, the company’s range includes utensil washers, advanced water treatment machines, cleaning chemicals and detergents. For further details, call Winterhalter on 01908 359000, see, or email
