The Optima 500 disinfector has a unique clean cycle whereby at the end of the wash cycle the water in the tank is pumped to drain and the water used for the final rinse is subsequently saved for the next wash cycle. This ensures that the machine is always washed with clean water which in turn drastically improves results.

The disinfection cycle allows a wash temperature of 80°C for 10 minutes to meet AS/NZS 4187:2014 Standard. Cycle times on this machine range from 1.5minutes to 50 minutes.

    What is a condenser or heat recovery unit?

    A condenser is a unit that collects the steam that normally is vented from the dishwasher and condensates it. Cold water is circulated through a radiator type device and hot vapours are drawn though by a fan. In many cases the water from the condenser is used for the final rinse process as it is slightly pre-heated.  A heat recovery unit is similar to a condenser but with a larger heat exchanger and the heat that is transferred to the water is used to pre-heat final rinse water. A heat pump is a heat recovery unit that uses a refrigerant to remove all excessive heat from the machine and re-use for the final rinse. In most cases a heat recovery unit eliminates the need for direct connection to external ducting. However, the requirement for adequate room ventilation according to building codes still applies.
