What Is Drain Water Tempering and Why Is It Important?
09 October, 2018

Commercial dishwashers are an important part of any foodservice operation, whether large or small. Automatic dishmachines contribute in a big way when it comes to labor efficiency and cost savings. And, perhaps the most important contribution is performance; after all, the serving pieces, prep ware, and glasses must be spotless and sanitized.

However, there’s an element you should be aware that is often overlooked when considering the cost of operating your dishmachine—

Drain Water Tempering

This term refers to the process of cooling drain water (or wastewater) as it exits the dishwasher.

Why is it important?

Drain water tempering is defined in the national plumbing code and has been adopted by many cities and municipalities to help protect the integrity of drain lines. The temperature of the water leaving a dishwasher must be cooled to 140 degrees Fahrenheit or below so it’s not too hot when entering a drainage or sewage system. Water that is hotter than 140 degrees can degrade pipes and cause leaks in the drain lines.

Step 1

If you’re concerned about how drain water tempering may affect your foodservice operation, the first step is to know your plumbing codes. Do some online research and discuss the issue with a licensed plumber.

Step 2

Next, make sure the drain water from your commercial dishwasher is properly cooled before entering the drain system. This is important because it’s likely repairs to leaky drain lines will cost more than keeping your wastewater cooled to the correct temperature.

How it works

By now you’re probably wondering how the drain water tempering process works. In most cases, cold water is added to the drain water as it is exiting the dishwasher. The method can vary; some solutions use electrically actuated technology which requires a power source to open and close a cold-water valve. Other systems consist of a variably designed mechanical cold-water valve which works without the need for an additional power source.

If you determine drain water tempering is required, find out if your commercial dishwasher manufacturer offers a drain water tempering kit (drain water tempering kits are available for all Hobart dishmachines). A professional installation is recommended and once the kit is operational, a cold-water valve will automatically add cold water to the waste water when it starts to drain at the end of a cycle.                      

Technologies are also available that reduce the reliance on a tempering kit. The Hobart Advansys™ CLeN Conveyor Type dishwasher packs a punch when it comes to water and energy saving technologies. This dishmachine comes with the money-saving Drain Water Energy Recovery technology (or DWeR). DWeR is an exciting innovation that captures the heat from the hot wastewater to increase the temperature of incoming water from a cold-water line. Drain water is cooled below 140 degrees, reducing the amount of tempering water needed by up to 90%, saving a lot of water and money.

Whether you opt for installing a drain water tempering kit or purchase a machine with built-in drain water tempering technology, remember to keep your foodservice operation compliant with plumbing codes.

And, remember that commercial dishwashers are not the only pieces of equipment that produce hot wastewater. Check your operation for other equipment that may require a drain water tempering process, such as boilers, humidifiers, and other automatic cleaning equipment.

Contact Hobart at 888-4HOBART if you have any questions and/or would like to learn more about the installation of a drain water tempering kit.

How the Hobart Advansys LXGeR Helps the Whiskey House Make Its Mark
04 January, 2017

On the edge of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, inside a low-slung building tucked between the San Diego Chinese Center and a chic women’s apparel retailer, sits The Whiskey House; an inviting watering hole and restaurant that features more than 600 whiskeys, craft cocktails, 20 international draft beers, an eclectic wine list and a menu of house-made fare. Known for its Old Fashioneds, The Whiskey House is a new addition to the San Diego bar and restaurant scene. As a hangout looking to make a name for itself, creating a positive first impression for patrons with increasingly discriminating tastes has been important, says Ryan King, the bar’s owner. In a city consistently ranked among the nation’s top 10 best metro regions to live, the city’s residents have no lack of choices of where to spend their evenings. This makes competition among San Diego bars aggressive, with little room for unforced errors. Building on his more than 24 years of hospitality industry experience, King chose to make a significant investment in not just his bar’s inventory of whiskeys, wines, liquors and draft beers, but in the purchase of high-quality Riedel wine and bar glasses, too. With signature cocktails and drink options available and quality glassware to serve it in, King thought he had all bases covered. But there was one problem. “We used a rental glasswashing machine, but our glasses were coming out smelling like chlorine,” King said. “We ended up having to pour out drinks and wine when people complained, and it threatened to give us a bad reputation.”


Like many commercial glasswashing machines available for rent, the Whiskey House’s rental required sanitizer, but left behind significant chemical residue. Looking to stand out in the competitive San Diego restaurant scene, and knowing that his customers expect more from their drinking and dining experiences, King needed to find a solution for the Whiskey House that would ensure fast turnover for the busiest shifts. He found one in the new Advansys™ LXGeR high-temperature glasswasher from Hobart. 

After installing the glasswasher, King said that he and his employees now spend their time focusing on running the business and mixing incredible cocktails, instead of worrying about whether the glassware is clean. In fact, King said, when others in the business ask about the glasswasher, he recommends it in a heartbeat.




2016 Best in Class Awards
19 December, 2016

FE&S presents the results from the 2016 Best in Class study, where foodservice professionals were asked to rate individual factories on a list of specific attributes.

The data collected was used to create a composite score and determine the winners of FE&S' 2016 Best in Class Awards. Hobart Dishwashers/Warewasher won Best In Class Overall!

Foodservice operators, dealers and consultants cast their votes for the best of the best among foodservice equipment and supplies manufacturers.

Every foodservice equipment and supplies manufacturer strives to achieve best in class status in the eyes of their supply chain partners. The fact remains, though, that only a few factories earn the right to truly claim Best in Class status. That's because the only way to achieve this elite status is to provide value in multiple ways as defined by the customer. With that in mind, Foodservice Equipment and Supplies presents the data from our 2016 Best in Class Study

In this exclusive research, FE&S' subscribing foodservice operators, dealers and consultants evaluate equipment and supplies manufacturers on seven critical characteristics that impact their purchasing decisions:

  • Product quality
  • Product value
  • Product design and aesthetics
  • Service and support
  • Sales representation
  • Product inventory and availability
  • Product information availability

Those participating in the survey prioritized these factors in order of importance and then rated the individual factories they work with in a given product category on these attributes. Our research team then combined the individual results with those from other participants from the category to create a composite score and identify those manufacturers that the readers of FE&S feel are Best in Class.

These comprehensive results highlight those factories that establish the benchmark for understanding and meeting the needs of the entire distribution channel.

11 April, 2016

The Wheat Penny Oven & Bar is an unexpected find in Dayton, Ohio. More West Coast than Midwestern, the owners of the restauarant, Liz Valenti and Elizabeth Wiley, have described it as pizza-centric, but featuring rustic, creative dishes and a bar that serves up fresh, handmade cocktails.

Open six days a week for both lunch and dinner, the Wheat Penny has had a strong following since it first opened in 2013. The restaurant’s patrons are attracted by its California-style pizzas, locally-sourced ingredients, vegetabledriven dishes and diverse wine, beer and cocktail menu.

A popular restaurant for casual, yet upscale dishes, a majority of the restaurant’s patrons typically pair their meals with a glass of wine, a craft beer or a cocktail. Throughout the week that keeps two bartenders busy, while Friday and Saturday nights demand three bartenders to keep orders filled for the house’s 99-seat room.

While busy is good for any up and coming restaurant, having a slow bar is not. As the Wheat Penny made a name for itself and found more of a following, the bar was increasingly having trouble keeping up. The reason, said Andrew Maines, the restauarant’s bar manager, was that in addition to mixing cocktails, pouring beers and uncorking wine, bartenders were also pulling double duty by washing most of the glassware by hand.

“For all of our wine glasses and cocktail glasses, we would use the triple sink under the bar for washing, and allof our pint glasses we would send back to the kitchen to be run through the dish washer,” Maines said.

Typically though, Maines said that wasn’t enough. Glasses that went through the kitchen dishwasher often had to be rewashed. And no matter where glasses were washed, all had to be thoroughly inspected and polished before meeting any diner’s lips. While this ensured quality, Maines explained that it put a heavy burden on the bar staff.


Needless to say, the routine was both tedious and slowing the time it took to fill orders.


The Wheat Penny’s owners and managers are always looking for ways to make the restaurant’s operations more efficient, Maines said, which is why it began looking forways to take pressure off the bartenders and dishwashing staff. They found one with the new Hobart Advansys™ LXGePR glasswasher. With more than 100 years of foodservice and food retail equipment manufacturing experience, Hobart built the Advansys LXGePR glasswasher to address the concerns that restaurants and bars have with glass washing – high labor costs, unsatisfactory results, sanitizing residue that clings to glassware and unpleasant odors.

Unlike using a triple sink, the LXGePR offers the ability to clean between 29 and 38 racks of glassware per hour based on light or normal wash cycle selection. The Advansys LXGePR also provides:

• A PuriRinse cycle that incorporates a potable water rinse to remove chemical residue;

• Washing and rinsing from standard hot (120 degrees and cold-water supply lines; and,

• An ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliance that uses just 1.14 gallons of water per rack.

Once installed, Maines said the Hobart glasswasher had an immediate impact.Not only did it take a significant load off the bartenders, but glassware comes

out consistently clean.

The biggest problem for us (before the new glasswasher) was that wenever had any idea what the condition of the dish tank water in the kitchen

would be. Midway through a busy night, we would be getting glasses backthat needed to be rewashed,” Maines said. “With the Hobart glasswasher,

the water stays clean a long time, and when it’s time to replace it, drainingand refilling only takes a few minutes.”

To keep both the glasswasher and bar operations running smoothly, Hobart built-in advanced service diagnostics and sensors that notify operators of dirty water or a clogged wash arm with alerts displayed on an easy-to-read panel. It also features an automated de-lime cycle that automatically adjusts the recommended de-lime frequency based on water hardness.

Installation of the LXGePR at the Wheat Penny was easy, Maines said, and required training was minimal.

“It takes standard-size racks, so that makes it easy,” Maines said, adding that the machine’s one-button operation makes it pretty much self-explanatory.

Hobart engineers designed the LXGePR glasswasher to require little in the way of daily maintenance. Each is built with a deep-drawn, stainless steel tank and housing that keeps the unit clean and enables it to blend in to any décor. At shutdown, an auto clean cycle sprays down the inside of the machine to facilitate quick cleaning.

All-in-all, Maines said he is very pleased with the Wheat Penny’s investment. The Hobart Advansys LXGePR has sped up operations behind the bar, taken demand off the kitchen and has eliminated double washing.

Hobart Introduces New Glasswasher Designed for Bars and Restaurants
26 February, 2016

Advansys™ LXGe eliminates chemical residue; delivers better customer experience


Hobart introduces the new Advansys™ LXGe glasswasher, the first machine specifically designed to clean and sanitize glassware in bars and restaurants. The new ENERGY STAR® qualified washer produces cleaner glasses by eliminating chemical sanitizers, resulting in better-tasting drinks and an improved customer experience.


“As the trend in craft beers and handcrafted cocktails continues to grow, bars and restaurants are looking at the entire drink experience, and a cleaner glass is a key part of that,” said Carrie Hoff, product line manager. “The LXGe glasswasher gives operators the ability to serve customers their best, in a glass that’s free from the negative effects that chemical residue can have on the taste, smell and appearance of beer, wine and cocktails.”


The Advansys LXGe glasswasher offers operators a choice in how to clean and sanitize their glassware with two models, and it boasts unique features to save significant costs in water, energy and labor:

  • The LXGeR model uses high-temperature rinsing from a cold-water supply, eliminating the need for chemical sanitizers.
  • The LXGePR model uses potable water to thoroughly rinse away chemical sanitizers and chemical smells from the final product.
  • “Soft Start” feature helps prevent and reduce glass damage (available on both models).
  • Auto-clean cycle saves time spent on manual cleaning (available on both models).
  • Automatic alerts save troubleshooting time and makes machine maintenance easier.
  • The LXGeR model uses 0.62 gallons of water per rack.
  • The LXGePR model uses 1.14 gallons of water per rack.
" The biggest problem for us (before the new glasswasher) was that we never had any idea what the condition of the dish tank water in the kitchen would be. Midway through a busy night, we would be getting glasses back that needed to be rewashed,” Maines said. “With the Hobart glasswasher, the water stays clean a long time, and when it’s time to replace it, draining and refilling only takes a few minutes. "
- Andrew Maines, Wheat Penny
- Ryan King, The Whiskey House
" Our customers complained about the smell of the glasses,” said Miller. “We spent time rewashing glasses, we had to change the water every hour or two, and pretty much needed an extra person to spend all their time washing glasses.”rnrn“I would tell other restaurants that it’s definitely a buy,” Miller said. “It’s worth it. "
- Amber Miller, Bunker's Bar & Grill
" Before our LXGe glasswasher, we used to have to send our glasses back to be re-washed. The machine has streamlined our operation, reduced labor or our dishwashers and reduced breakage. The time the staff saves not returning glass racks back and forth is definitively worth the investment. "
