【目的】 乾燥が適切で省エネタイプの食器洗い乾燥機 を得たい。
【構成】 乾燥行程に移行すると同時に、先ずファン５ を駆動し、この間の庫内温度を庫内温度測定用センサー ４により測定すると共にこのセンサー４で測定される温 度の変化量から内容物の量を判断して制御回路６で乾燥 時間を演算し、本格的な乾燥行程に移行する。
PURPOSE:To prevent the useless consumption of energy and prevent the generation of the trouble of a half dried state by automatically controlling the completion time of the drying process according to the quantity of the content articles. CONSTITUTION:When a washing process completes and the shift to a drying process is performed, only a fan 5 is driven for a certain time, and the temperature in a container during this time is measured by a sensor 4 for measuring the temperature, and this value is inputted into a control circuit 6 at all times. The variation quantity of the temperature in the container for a certain time (during the drive of the fan 5) is calculated on the basis of the information supplied from the sensor 4 for measuring the temperature in the container which is inputted up to this time is calculated. When the variation quantity is large, it is judged that the quantity of the contents is less, and the drying time is set short, and a heater 13 is driven, and after the lapse of the set time, the drying process is completed. On the contrary, when the variation quantity is less, it is judged that the quantity of the contents is large, and the drying time is set long, and the heater 3 is driven, and after the lapse of the set time, the drying process is completed.
