Disinfector times and temperatures
The Washer Disinfector operator may select to guarantee the temperatures for any re-circulated phase of the cycle. If the Washer Disinfector temperature guarantee is selected, the phase will not begin timing until the re-circulated water temperature reaches the set point. If the Washer Disinfector re-circulated temperature drops below the set point during the phase, the timer will stop. Once the Washer Disinfector set point temperature is again met, the phase-timer continues from where it stopped thus assuring the set temperature during entire treatment phase time.
