Food service technology center cost comparison study results #1 (SC1/SC2)
SC1 and SC2 were identical restaurants from the same chain, located less than 20 miles apart in neighboring towns in southern California. Table 2 and Figure 36 below show the comparative steamer water and energy costs in these facilities. The connectionless steamer cost $7 per year for combined water and sewer and $571 per year for electricity, totaling $578 per year. On the other hand, the boiler-based steamer cost $1,944 per year for water and $4,717 per year for electricity, for a total annual cost of $6,661. With a $6,083 per year difference in combined water and energy costs, the connectionless steamer would pay for itself within one year. Although variances in steamer production and kitchen operation may slightly affect the usage at each location, there was clearly an operational cost benefit to the boilerless technology. We are able to provide boiler based speed and performance with all of the efficiency and reliability benefits of connectionless and convection steamers.
