The Hubbell Model JTX electric tankless booster heater contains high powered heating elements that heat water only when there is demand from the dishmachine. When hot water is needed, a built in flow sensor measures the exact flow rate and that data combined with temperature readings at the heater's inlet and outlet are processed by the electronic temperature controller. This data is continuously transmitted to the temperature controller, which constantly calculates the precise amount of power (kW) needed to achieve the desired temperature. A zero cross over firing signal is sent to the heater's fast acting triacs in order to modulate the heating elements to the precise level needed to meet demand. The Hubbell tankless booster heater uses only as much power as is needed, while delivering accurate and consistent hot water temperature.
Note: The Hubbell Model JTX is designed for use with conveyor and flight type dish machines. This product is not intended for use with door style dish machines.
Tankless Booster Saves MoneyEnergy Savings
By heating water more efficiently...over 98% efficient...and essentially eliminating standby heat loss, the typical owner will save over 2300 kW·Hrs per year! Add to that the reduced maintenance costs of the Hubbell tankless booster compared to a tank type booster and the annual savings easily add up to over $750 per year.
2300 kW·Hrs x $0.16 per kWh = $368.00 Annual Energy Savings
Free up floor space, improve the look and cleanliness of your kitchen, and improve the longevity of your booster when you mount the Hubbell tankless on the wall.

A sophisticated electronic temperature controller with LED digital display provides the user interface. The temperature controller processes all flow and temperature data and calculates the precise amount of power needed to meet demand.
|Operator Control Capabilities|
|Power Limiting:||Allows the operator to reduce the power consumption by any percentage to provide installation and operational flexibility and savings.|
|Diagnostics:||Display inlet and outlet temperatures, flow rate and error codes to assist in troubleshooting.|
|Cost Calculator:||Determine the exact cost of operating the heater. Input your cost per KWÂ·Hr and the controller displays total KWÂ·HRs consumed, total cost of operation, and total hot water usage (shown in gallons or liters).|
|Temperature Control:||Set the digital display to the desired water temperature in °F or °C.Â Fully adjustable in 1° increments from 32-194°F (0-90°C). A user adjustable +/- 3° calibration feature provides additional control for superior accuracy.|
Each heating element is switched on/off using a fast acting solid state triac with zero cross over firing control. This switching schema provides full modulation of each heating element, ensuring that the precise amount of heat is added to meet demand. To improve operating efficiency and component longevity, each triac is mounted to a heat sink located on the incoming supply piping so that heat generated by the triac during the switching process is dissipated into the water.
All Hubbell tankless water heaters, including all 3 phase models, are engineered to operate as a balanced load and operate at 0.999 Power Factor. All Hubbell 3 phase models are designed for 3 wire (3 live, 1 ground) and 4 wire power systems and draw equal current across all conductors to maintain the power integrity of the users electrical system. Hubbell does not recommend the use of heaters that operate as an unbalanced load, as is common with staged heaters designed for star systems (3 live, 1 neutral, 1 ground) that require use of the neutral leg.Â All load switching in Hubbell tankless models is performed as zero cross over, eliminating phase angle firing interference and associated EMI issues.
The Hubbell tankless control schema ensures that usage is equalized across all heating circuits. To achieve this, once the controller has calculated the precise amount of kW required, all circuits are energized in a staggered fashion such that each circuit is proportionally and independently energized and then time staggered between circuits. This Full Resource Staging Schema reduces EMI output, increases component longevity, and provides highly accurate and consistent hot water temperatures.Â For three phase models, all circuits are fully modulated and synchronized to operate as a balanced load.
Remote Control:Ability to remotely enable or inhibit the heating operation of the unit using one of the following two methods:
1. Customer supplied 24VDC signal is user configured for either Inhibit Mode or Normal Operation Mode.
2. Customer supplied volt free contact is user configured for either Inhibit Mode or Normal Operation Mode.
Priority Control: An integrated SPDT potential free dry contact (NO/NC 10A @ 240VAC) energizes when the unit is heating and de-energizes when not heating. This feature is useful when it is desirable to give the water heater priority over another electrical load to ensure that both are not operational at the same time.

For outdated models or dishmachines not listed consult Hubbell for recommended tankless booster size.
This selector chart is based upon 40°F and 70°F temperature rises, and 20psi flow.
All booster heaters are rated at 100% of the capacity of the dishwasher as recommended by the National Sanitation Foundation.
- Inlet and Outlet Valve assemblies simplify installation by integrating unions, shut offs, drain ports and relief valve port
- Heating chamber designed and built to ASME Section VIII and is "UM" stamped
- Water Treatment System: Provide superior mineral scale prevention and corrosion control by feeding a special blend of scale control compounds into the hot water stream before the booster. The in-line system includes a clear cartridge housing to allow an operator to view the cartridge and determine when it needs replacement without the need to open the system.
- Shock Absorber: Reduce the harmful pressures resulting from quick closing dishwasher solenoid valves by installing a shock absorber between the booster and the dishwasher
- T&P Relief Valve for installation in the hot water outlet piping. Required in Kentucky and Massachusetts
- Remote Control Display allows the heater to be installed in a remote location. The 3" x 5" NEMA 4 display enclosure can be located up to 250' from the heater and gives the operator full remote control and monitoring capabilities
