How do the FR2 and 3CS2 units work? Let us show you how. Water flows by natural convection from the above holding vessel directly into tubes, and a heating element wrapped around the outside. This unique tubular design eliminates issues with hard water and scale, as heating elements are never immersed directly into the water. These heating elements heat the water and the heated water naturally flows upward and returns to the holding vessel. An electronic controller accurately maintains the set point temperature based on your application. Hatco's FR2's are designed to be used with a bain marie or a food rethermalizer. Either holds foods at temperatures between 140 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit, 60-88 degrees Celsius. The desired holding temperature is maintained by an adjustable thermostat. Note that a fabricated water baffle is required when a hydro heater is used in support of a bain marie, in order to prevent the water from directly recirculating back into the unit to maintain even temperatures throughout the water vessel. Designed to fit under the center of sink, Hatco 3CS2 is perfect for three or four compartment sinks, pots and pan sinks, and bar sinks. Electronic controls keep the temperature at 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit, meeting NSF's regulations. That's 82-88 degrees Celsius. The benefits of Hatco 3CS2 and FR2 hydro heaters include accurate and reliable temperature control, reduced labor and training, improved food safety, reduced energy, product quality, longer holding times, and reduced cooking equipment expense, space, and cleaning. The result of a hydro heater's unique heating technology is consistent and reliable with accurately heated water, when and where you need it, every time you want it. And don't forget about the knock-your-socks-off customer service that makes Hatco famous. Call your local Hatco dealer, sales representative, Hatco customer service, or visit AutoQuotes.
