Standard Test Method for Performance of Water-Bath Rethermalizers
|Publication Date:||1 March 2005|
|ICS Code (Buildings for commerce and industry):||91.040.20|
This test method covers the energy consumption and rethermalizing performance of floor-model and countertop water-bath rethermalizers. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a water-bath rethermalizer and understand its energy consumption and production capacity.
This test method is applicable to floor and countertop model gas and electric units.
The water-bath rethermalizer can be evaluated with respect to the following (where applicable):
Energy input rate (10.2),
Preheat energy consumption, time, and rate (10.4),
Idle energy rate (10.5),
Pilot energy rate (10.6),
Retherm energy rate (10.8),
Production capacity (10.8), and
Retherm-energy efficiency (10.8).
This test method is not intended to answer all performance criteria in the evaluation and selection of a water-bath rethermalizer.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
