Hobart’s advanced Opti-Rinse technology is the industry’s most advanced water- and energy-saving rinse system.
Hobart’s advanced Opti-Rinse technology is the industry’s most advanced water- and energy-saving rinse system. Opti-Rinse technology creates a strong and powerful spray by forming an S-shaped pattern across the surface of the ware. The pattern means a saving of more than 50% in water and energy, and even helps you save additional money by reducing the size of the booster heater required.
Depending on the size of the operation and number of hours the machine is used, this can add up to an average annual saving of $7,685 to upwards of $15,000.
Designed for efficiency from the inside out. The FT1000 has the lowest water consumption in the industry. The FT1000 warewasher maximizes efficiency and minimizes waste in almost every detail. Hobart’s cascading water system conserves energy and water by replenishing each tank with the heated water from the adjacent tank, as it moves through the machine from the rinse to prewash area.
Meanwhile, our exclusive soil-management system results in fewer tank fills, which reduces water, detergent and energy use. Sloping screens and deep collection baskets work together to suspend food soil and keep it out of the tanks.
Additional features save more water and energy:
Multi-layer curtains separate wash and rinse zones to reduce carryover of water and control air movement to help keep proper operating temperatures.
When activated, the Dish Limit feature stops rinse water flow and alerts the operator to unload the ware. When no ware is detected, electronic sensors automatically initiate an energy-saving idle mode. Insulated chamber and doors help hold heat for greater energy efficiency.
Even if you serve more and more people each day, you can cut down on the energy it takes to clean up after them. Hobart’s optional Advansys Energy Recovery system can reduce the FT1000 warewasher’s energy consumption by as much as 16% or $3,200 a year.
The Advansys Energy Recovery system achieves this saving by taking advantage of the heat energy that the machine already generates—heat that would otherwise simply be vented outside, and recycles it to preheat the incoming water supply to the booster heater.
The Advansys Energy Recovery system allows operation using a cold water supply for the final rinse with temperatures as low as 55°F/10°C.
Like all Hobart products, the FT1000 flight-type warewasher is designed to help you achieve the highest return on your equipment investment over its entire life cycle.
The longer life starts with a heavy-gauge, stainless steel frame, combined with the FT1000’s heavy-duty rolled hem rail, which together add greater strength and structural integrity, plus superior support for the flight belt.
The doors and chamber are insulated, double-wall, stainless steel construction, and the doors are hung on heavy-duty stainless steel brackets designed to stand up to the kind of daily use and abuse kitchen equipment can suffer.
The stainless steel drawn tanks minimize the number of welded seams, and all pumps and impellers are stainless steel, further adding to the FT1000’s durability.
A variety of features helps ensure that the FT1000 is reliable and hard-working. Totally enclosed, fan-cooled motors are equipped with inherent overload protection for longer life. Corded and cabled, prewired connections reduce the potential for water and moisture damage. The control panel is water resistant for added reliability. Low-water sensors for the power wash and power rinse tanks protect the heating elements.
