ASTM F2379 - 04(2016)

Standard Test Method for Energy Performance of Powered Open Warewashing Sinks

Status : Current   Published : October 2016



1.1 This test method evaluates the energy consumption of powered open warewashing sinks. The food service operator can use these tests to evaluate and select a suitable washing device and understand its energy consumption.

1.2 This test method applies to powered open warewashing sinks (powered sinks) with the following characteristics: a large main water sink with electrically powered water pump(s) and multiple high flow water nozzles. The unit may include gas or electric heaters to maintain water temperature. These powered sinks are designed to run for predetermined cycle duration and accommodate pots and pans of various shapes and sizes as well as cooking utensils. They are intended for stand alone use and require little supervision. The powered sink will be tested for the following (where applicable):

1.2.1 Maximum energy input rate ( 10.2),

1.2.2 Preheat energy consumption and duration ( 10.3),

1.2.3 Idle energy rate ( 10.4),

1.2.4 Pilot energy rate, if applicable ( 10.5), and

1.2.5 Washing cycle energy consumption ( 10.6).

Note 1:  This test method applies only to the powered portion of the unit. Other compartments (sanitizing, rinsing, and so forth) are not evaluated.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4  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.
