Commercial dishwashers in different performance classes are used in all industrial kitchens. In contrast to existing commercial dishwashers, there is an increasing demand for products that use drying technology to meet customer wishes and needs. Various household dishwashers having zeolite mineral during drying prevents water droplets and detergent stains (including surfaces of plastic containers) on the surfaces of dishes and rinsing of sensitive products (crystal glass glasses, etc.). By pointing out that they prevent excess steam from spreading when opened, they highlight these products as environmentally friendly and value-adding compared to conventional household products. In this work, we developed a new commercial dishwasher prototype using a mineral in the drying process. Technical simulations and experiments are used during the development of our innovative prototype with a drying system using a mineral that stores moisture and converts it into thermal energy. This is the first prototype in commercial dishwashers with its innovative drying system.
