Uses 76% less energy and 45% less space than prior models.
The CLe blower dryer is the perfect finishing touch to one of the most energy-, water-, labor- and space-efficient conveyor dishwashers in the industry, Hobart’s CLe.
The drive to dry: Get your ware 98% drier. The faster your ware dries, the faster you can use them, increasing productivity, lowering inventory. With the CLe blower dryer, ware is 98% drier.
Designed for higher operation efficiency. We tested the amount of moisture left on compartmentalized trays. As you can see, without the CLe blower dryer, ware—especially trays—retains a lot of water that can take a long time to dry. With the CLe blower dryer, drying time is significantly reduced and, in some cases, even eliminated. As a result, most of your ware can go right back into operation. It’s not only a time issue, but it could have sanitation implications, too.
The CLe dishwasher and CLe blower dryer: An integrated system designed to deliver drier ware. Hobart engineered the CLe dishwasher and blower dryer to operate as one integrated system. To reduce humidity levels in the blower dryer, the CLe dishwasher is designed to help prevent humid heat loss from the end of the machine. The blower dryer introduces a small amount of fresh air to keep humidity levels low. Meanwhile, baffles below the conveyor redirect air upward, recycling the drying air within the chamber, reducing heat loss. A lower-watt heater—reducing energy usage—can thus be used to keep the air hot and humidity levels low. With the resulting humidity levels of approximately 25% to 35%, the ware dries much more efficiently.
A small footprint and longevity add up to a very sustainable unit. It’s a perfect fit for any sustainable operation. Only 33" long, the CLe blower dryer is 45% smaller than previous models. Its longevity is ensured by legendary Hobart construction. The chamber and frame are made of stainless steel. The three 3.3-kW heating elements are designed with over-temperature protection devices for longer life. The blower system is interwired with the dishwasher, so that it runs only when the dishwasher does, saving wear and energy. The heavy-duty, 2-H.P. direct-drive motor (no belts to break, change or maintain) has thermostatic and solid-state motor overload protection that automatically resets. Finally, the CLe blower dryer operates at 66.7 to 67.2 dBA, significantly lower than OSHA’s permissible exposure level (PEL) of 90 dBA.
