DESIGN: Fully automatic rack transport warewashing system utilizing any Hobart CLe dishwasher or combination thereof. ­Design incorporates tables and rack transport system providing continuous closed-circuit operation­.

OPERATION: Direction of operation may be specified either clockwise or counterclockwise determined by ­facing doors on CLe machine. Hinged doors on dishmachine may be ­specified to face either­ in or out.

CONSTRUCTION: As Applicable:

Dishwasher: Any Hobart CLe Dishwasher or combination­ thereof, selected according to production requirements. Use portion of separate specifications for CLe model(s) selected. FastRack dishwasher is standard with stainless steel front, side and rear panels, frame, legs & feet.

Tables: Table surface is #14 gauge stainless steel with structural cross supports. Table sections are designed­ with positive alignment and sealing­ bolted table joint connections. All “H” frames and other supporting­ members­ of 158" diameter stainless steel tubing with stainless steel adjust-

able feet. Inside width of tabling – 2214". Radius to outside­ of curved sections – 36". Loading section of table incorporates a 114" high rack rest. Rack is disengaged­ from transport chain when placed on lip, permitting stationary loading.


Straightaway Unit: PS22 prewash unit in straightaway to be specified as part of companion CLe dishwasher. Refer­ to individual machine specifications­ .

MOTORS: Refer to individual Hobart CLe model specifications.

TOP MOUNTED CONTROLS: A stainless steel control module with power and “start/stop” ­button is mounted on the top of the machine. Machine control circuitry will be operated from a 120-volt control circuit transformer and 5V/12V DC control circuit.


Racks are delivered through dishwashing ­machine by means of 8,500 lb. tensile strength stainless steel endless chain with oval driving lugs and stainless steel rollers. The drive ­system transports racks

without­ permanent attachment,­ permitting instant engagement and disengagement of racks for cleaning, loading, substitution of different racks, etc.

TRANSPORT CHAIN DRIVE: 1 H.P. ball bearing motor drives a speed reducer. Supplied in same electrical specs as dishwasher. Speed reducer power train is lubricated­ and cooled by an oil bath. A friction drive clutch ­installed in low speed shaft of speed reducer and directly connected to the drive sprocket shaft. Motor has built-in overload protection with manual reset.

DRAIN CONNECTION: Single 2" female connection for dishmachine. May be specified at either clean or soiled dish end. Separate female drain connection for disposer(s) and waste system.

BUILDING HOT WATER CONNECTION: Single 12" pipe ­female connection. (It is recommended that the building water temperature be 140°F.)

STEAM CONNECTION: If steam booster is specified, single 112" female connection for steam coil(s) and steam booster.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION: Single electrical connection­ for all motors, operating controls and electric tank heat. Separate electrical connections required­ for electric booster, electric blower dryer, disposer­ and waste system in front trough.

RACKS: Racks are not furnished as standard equipment. A study of customer requirements must be made to determine the number and type of racks required­ . Hobart racks are recommended,­ however, most plastic racks available from various rack suppliers with Hobart indexing could be used on the FRCLe system.

FILL: Fill water line is equipped with vacuum breaker on downstream side of electrically operated solenoid valve in common piping ­system,

for automatic maintenance of tank level. Fill is interrupted­ whenever a door is opened.


ELECTRIC: Electric incoloy sheathed immersion heaters­ removable from inside tank. Tank water temperature has a microprocessor controlled thermostat with positive low-water protection and magnetic contactor. (Disconnect switches not furnished.) Heating elements are additionally protected by a high limit device mounted on the surface of the element­ .

STEAM: One-inch stainless steel steam ­coils. Tank water­ temperature­ has a microprocessor controlled thermostat­ with positive low-water protection.

Steam supplied to ­machine through high temperature steam solenoid­ valve and line strainer. Each tank supplied­ through common steam connection.

GAS: Regulated power immersion tube gas burner ­system. Tank water temperature has a microprocessor controlled thermostat and a blower with a centrifugal switch. Positive low water protection is provided. Immersion tube is additionally protected by a high limit device mounted on the surface of the tube. A solid-state ignitor board controls the gas valve and provides flame ignition for each tank.

A transformer steps the control circuit voltage down from 120 volts to 24 volts to power the ­ignitor board and gas valve.

For natural gas, gas pressure to burner (customer ­connection) not to exceed 7" W.C.

For LP gas, gas pressure to burner ­(customer connection)­ not to exceed 11" W.C.

If gas pressure is higher than 7" W.C. natural or 11" W.C. LP, a pressure regulating valve must be supplied (by others) in the gas line to the ­dishwasher.

FINAL RINSE WATER BOOSTER HEATER: A steam booster, electric booster or gas booster heater may be mounted under the clean dish table or freestanding on the floor in center of the dish tables.

Steam: A four-pass straight tube heat exchanger­

having­ removable headers. Equipped with solenoid valve and thermostatic control wired in flexible liquid-tight conduit. Bucket type steam trap, pressure relief valves for both water and steam, water pressure ­reducing valve and pressure gauge for outlet water. Maximum operating steam pressure— 50 p.s.i. For steam pressure ­below 20 p.s.i. Booster hot water outlet­ connected to fill and final rinse.

Electric & Gas: Hobart electric mounted hot within water outlet is connected­ to fill and final rinse.

For proper gas ventilation, see the National Fuel Gas Code and Hobart Installation Manual.

FOODWASTE REMOVAL: The FastRack system­ may be equipped with a Hobart Food Waste

Disposer­ or a Hobart Waste Equipment System.


Disposer: Specify Hobart food waste disposer according to size required. Your Hobart ­Equipment Dealer or Hobart Representative can help with sizing­ . Disposer supplied with magnetic starter and push button station, ­having NEMA 12 enclosures, also solenoid valve, vacuum breaker and trough flushing nozzle(s). These components factory mounted, wired and plumbed as applicable. Control ­station for disposer conveniently ­located.

Food Waste Trough: 10", 12" or 16" (inside width) on front of straight soiled dish table, external of table. Trough lengths start at 4 feet (in 6" increments). ­Silver saver in trough, with cover over food waste ­disposer opening. Height of trough permits ­locking of trays under the 114" table lip ­specified at the loading section.

Tubular, sliding tray loops in (3) various sizes, may be specified from front-mounted trough. Number of tray loops determined by trough length.

Waste Equipment System: A food waste trough 10", 12" or 16" (inside width) with or without double skatewheels, may be connected to a Hobart Waste Equipment ­System and should be sized by your local Hobart Representative. Trough lengths start at 4 feet (in 6" increments).


GLASS AND CUP RACK ADJUSTABLE SLANT OVERSHELF: Constructed of #14 gauge ­stainless steel, turned up on back and both ends, with depressed­ front drain gutter and 34" drain tube. Adjustable three ways – height, angle of tilt or slant toward operator and front to back. Supported by extensions of stainless steel “H” frame. Optional length from 4 feet to 9 feet (in 1 foot increments).

EMPTY RACK STORAGE SHELF: Flat, constructed of stainless steel tubing, with ­tubular back and ends. Mounts above Glass and Cup Rack Overshelf on same extensions of “H” frame. Adjustable height, and front to back with Cup and Glass Rack Overshelf. Optional­ length same as slant shelf.


Constructed­ of #14 gauge stainless steel, turned up on back and both ends, down on front. Mounted on stainless steel tube ­extensions of “H” frame, usually
