    What is a Booster Heater?

    A booster heater is a type of water heater that is typically used with dishwashers to heat rinsing water in order to properly sanitize dishes. Booster heaters differ from traditional water heaters as they release water that has already been heated to temperatures ranging from 180 to 195 degrees Fahrenheit. In a commercial dishwasher, this allows the water to reach temperatures to sanitize all utensils and glassware, thoroughly and safely.

    Difference between a water heater and a booster heater

    Unlike your typical water heaters found in any utility room, booster heaters take water that is already warm and heat it to the appropriate temperatures to properly rinse and sanitize china, glassware, cooking utensils, and more in a commercial dishwasher. Booster heaters also require far less energy than a water heater and produce similar if not better results.

    Benefits of Booster Heaters

    Booster Heaters ensure that the final rinse has reached temperatures hot enough to meet sanitation codes. With the temperatures they reach, they also provide quick self-drying and clean dishware. Because the water reaches such high temperatures, water evaporates quickly from china and glassware once removed from the dish machine.
