One of the advantages of dishwashers is that they fully take over the process of washing dishes. In addition to the usual washing unit can also be dried. Below we will talk about what types of drying in dishwashers are, and tell you about their pros and cons.
The main types of drying
To date, there are several main types of dryers installed in dishwashers:
- intensive heat exchange with a cooled liquid;
- condensation drying;
- zeolite drying;
- turbo dryer;
- intelligent drainage program;
- static drying.
Each type differs from each other in its technical characteristics and features that must be considered when choosing a dishwasher. However, this requires familiarization with all methods of drying.
- Drying by heat exchange - this system is quite complex in terms of operation. This method is based on the pressure difference - around the cavity where the dishes are washed, there is an empty cavity containing cold water, while the dishwasher itself produces heat. Since hot air is lighter than cold air due to which pressure is formed. All evaporation rises, where the air is taken from the cavity of the machine by the air intake. It is worth noting that this device produces enhanced air flow.
- Condensation Drying - this type of drying is one of the easiest and easiest to use, it is often installed in aggregates, but it has one significant disadvantage, which consists in the longitude of the process. The whole system is based on the principle of condensation - all the water from the dishes evaporates and settles on the walls of the machine, after which it flows down into a special compartment. This type of drying is suitable for those who are not in a hurry.
- The zeolitic method of drying - this type of drying in the dishwasher is the most innovative. It uses a special heat transfer material called "zeolite".The drying process is quite interesting, in the base of the dishwashing chamber there is a tank with a substance that is connected to the main compartment by a small hole for the passage of water. During the runoff and the ingress of water to the material, a chemical reaction occurs, from which the zeolite begins to emit a huge amount of heat, thereby evaporating water. The resulting heat raises upward, gradually draining the dishes. One of the features is that after the end of the dishwasher, when the main chamber is opened, there will be no steam there. You should not be afraid that the zeolite will quickly exhaust its resource, a special structure will not allow it to collapse. The only drawback is that this system is used only in expensive models of dishwashers.
- Turbocharger - the name of this method speaks for itself. The principle of operation is quite simple, the system heats the air to a certain temperature, and then using a powerful built-in ventilation system inflates it around the chamber, blowing all the dishes. However, despite the advantages of fast drying, there are some considerable disadvantages - the machines with this drying system are quite expensive and they have increased power consumption, which is associated with air heating.
- Intellectual program - appeared quite recently, and it has not yet been widely used in dishwashers. Its essence lies in the fact that an external sensor is installed in the system, which reacts to the state of the external environment, and depending on it, various methods of drying will be applied.
- The static method is the simplest of all the above methods. There are no complex devices in the system; washed dishes are simply processed with warm air, hence the name. However, the minus immediately catches the eye - it is in the time of the operation.
We told you about all the main types of drying in dishwashers, as you can see, all of them have their pros and cons. But when choosing a unit here you need to focus on your preferences and financial capabilities. It will be important to read the reviews of people about what types of drying in the dishwasher, the most qualitatively cope with their work, as people often write true reviews.
