Capillary thermostats are used control the temperature of various appliances in commercial kitchens, including dishwashing stations. The thermostat consists of a temperature sensor and a tube filled with a heat-sensitive liquid that expands or contracts as the temperature changes. This expansion or contraction causes the thermostat to open or close a switch, which in turn controls the heating element or cooling system of the appliance. Commercial dishwasher capillary thermostat

In commercial dishwashing stations, capillary thermostats are used to control the temperature of the water in the dishwashing machine. The thermostats are typically located near the heating element of the machine and are connected to the water supply and drain system. As the temperature of the water in the machine changes, the capillary thermostat responds by either turning on or turning off the heating element, thereby maintaining a constant temperature.

There are several benefits to using capillary thermostats in commercial dishwashing stations. One of the primary benefits is that they are highly accurate and reliable. Because the thermostats respond directly to changes in temperature, they are able to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the washing cycle, even as the load of dishes and the temperature of the incoming water varies. Another benefit of capillary thermostats is that they are relatively easy to install and maintain. They typically require only a few simple connections to the existing plumbing and electrical systems of the dishwashing machine, and they are designed to be durable and long-lasting.

Capillary thermostats remain a popular and effective choice for controlling the temperature of commercial dishwashing machines. They are reliable, accurate, and easy to install, and they are an essential component of any well-functioning commercial kitchen.

Bulb & Capillary Thermostats

Original equipment manufacturers worldwide use thermostat switches designed and manufactured by STEMCO, a Division of Senasys. No matter which style or model you choose, all of the capillary thermostat switches operate using the same physics. A fluid is encapsulated in a metal and when the temperature changes the fluid either expands or contracts. This fluid change moves a diaphragm which is in touch with a snap action switch and either opens or closes a circuit.

Ambient Compensation

Our capillary thermostats can be ambient compensated to offset the differential in temperature which keeps our thermostat controls more accurate as it’s environment changes.

Custom Options

Capillary thermostat switches built by Senasys can also be built to customer specifications. This insures you get the exact control you want without paying for features you don’t need.
