This Hatco FR-3 food rethermalizer heater’s submerged heating element warms the water in a rethermalizer or bain marie holding tank, raising temperatures to between 140 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit to thaw and hold chilled, precooked foods at safe serving temperatures. Water circulates continuously in the heater tank to reduce the risk of cool spots that could affect food quality. Operators can adjust water temperature with the exterior thermostat, while an energy cutoff system shuts off the unit when water temperatures rise unexpectedly. Once water reaches the set temperature, an indicator light will illuminate to streamline operational oversight.
The Hatco FR-3 bain marie heater can be attached to the bottom of a rethermalizer or bain marie’s holding tank with its standard 2-inch plated brass plumbing fittings. This 7.75-inch-wide 16.88-inch-deep by 12.25-inch-high unit features a rust- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel front and a silver-gray hammertone body to withstand heavy use in commercial settings. To simplify maintenance, this dual-reservoir system features a heating compartment that contains the permanently submerged heating element, while its sump section traps and collects soil for draining. For efficiency, water containing more than 3 grains of hardness per gallon (GPG) should be treated and softened before being supplied to this water heater.
