Hard water is especially hard on booster heaters, dish machines, steamers, proofers, combination ovens, and rack and deck ovens.
Any water-fed equipment that requires high temperatures creates a "scale-friendly" environment. High temperatures cause the hard minerals in water to demulsify, creating solid scale depositors. Scale acts as an insultor, potentially causing heating elements to fail.
Hobart twin-tank, non-electric water softeners are available in both compact and enterprise-wide modes. By virtually eliminating the scale buildup caused by the calcium and magnesium in hard water, Hobart water softeners increase both the life and the efficiency of your equipment.
|Equipment Affected||Product Benefits|
|All water-fed equipment||Compact design (with casters) allows them to be moved to provide virtually scale-free water to any warewashing, cooking or beverage equipment.|
|Entire operation||Provides soft water for your whole foodservice operation|
The compact WS-C206 and WS-C208 water softeners are designed to fit easily in a kitchen. Offering high-flow rates-up to 16 gpm (gallons per minute)-both models have high-temperature compatibility. Casters allow you to move them easily anywhere in your operation. Although compact in size, their twin-tank design provides you with a continuous supply of soft water.
To soften the water for your entire operation, Hobart offers the WS-P213. It can allow a maximum flow of 40 gpm in a overdrive configuration, or you can have it configured for ultimate effluent quality for critical applications. This larger unit has quick-connect adapters for simple installation.
