Is it possible to operate a dishwasher without using hot water?

Yes, a dishwasher may be used without access to hot water. All Rhima machines contain a “Thermo stop,” which means the cycle will not complete if the temperature does not meet the safe minimum for cleanliness. Cycle times may be longer. If possible, connect machines that are linked to cold water to a three-phase power supply.

What is the difference between a condenser and a heat recovery unit?

A condenser is a device that catches and condenses the steam that is ordinarily released from the dishwasher. A radiator circulates cold water while a fan draws hot vapors through the opening. Because the water from the condenser is slightly pre-heated, it is frequently used for the final rinse procedure. The heat transmitted to the water is utilized to pre-heat final rinse water in a heat recovery unit, similar to a condenser but with a larger heat exchanger.

A heat pump is a heat recovery system that employs a refrigerant to take excess heat from the machine and reuse it for the final rinse. A heat recovery unit, in most circumstances, eliminates the necessity for a direct connection to external ducting. Building rules, however, nevertheless require appropriate room ventilation.
