When it comes time to specify the new CLeN conveyor washer from Hobart, not advocating for the advanced energy and labor-saving models is doing your clients a long-run disservice. Hobart CLeN Energy Recovery and Advansys models offer next level efficiency with up to 20 percent energy savings and a 90 percent reduction in hot water use. Additional savings are had with Hobart’s Automatic Soil Removal (ASR) system, which keeps wash water cleaner for longer. Meanwhile, the savings from the Hobart CLeN Energy Recovery and Advansys models recuperate initial upcharges in just 12-18 months.
Next level efficiency
Stepping up from the base model to CLeN Energy Recovery models provides your customers with superior performance and significant savings on building-supplied hot water and cold water used for tempering. Energy Recovery CLeN models feature Hobart’s Drain Water Energy Recovery (DWER) technology, which provide an enhanced energy saving solution that delivers up to 20 percent energy savings over the CLe series and effectively cuts building-supplied hot water usage up to 90 percent. DWER models also temper the drain water, eliminating 90 percent of the cold water needed for tempering, ensuring reduced water usage while still complying with plumbing codes.
Even greater energy and resource savings can be achieved by specifying Hobart’s CLeN Advansys model. Not only does the Advansys version offer all the cleaning power of the CLeN base plus the resource efficiency of the DWER, it also includes Hobart’s Automatic Soil Removal (ASR) system. Available only on the CLeN Advansys model, the ASR system works by collecting and systematically pumping out large and small soil items missed during pre-scrapping. This automated process keeps wash water cleaner and for longer periods of time. This also reduces the use of chemical detergents, de-liming agents and frequent water changes, saving money and reducing the overall cost of ownership.
Upgrades that pay for themselves
At a recommended price of just $3,500 above the base model CLeN price, the DWER system on the Energy Recovery model will typically pay for itself in just over a year. Meanwhile, the Hobart CLeN Advansys model’s recommended price is just $4,500 above the CLeN base price ($3,500 for DWER technology, $1,000 for the ASR system), leading to a 12-18-month ROI, with continued savings experienced over the life of the dishwasher.
