Checklist dispenser maintenance


Post-pandemic; the new standard for hygiene

Covid- 19 hit in 2020 and lasted for almost 2 years. Few of us could have imagined that we would go back to where we left off. Yet, the behaviour of consumers has changed. More people are now cautious of the environment and the surfaces they encounter or touch.

Schools, restaurants, retailers, hotels, cinemas, and gyms have permanently introduced stations where customers can sanitize their hands. Even face-covering has become the new normal, and we can still see people with face coverings and even stations with face coverings.

In addition, with increased chemical usage in areas that have remained essential, such as hospitals and supermarkets, now more than ever, it has become crucial to maintain all dispensing equipment, which needs to be maintained regularly for optimal operation.

With this in mind, we have put together the below checklist to assist our customers in recognizing areas that require particular attention:

  • Chemical Concentrate Dosing Systems – Check that filters have been cleaned to prevent obstructions and foreign particles from entering the chemical inlet tube and ensure that the correct dilution is used.
  • Laundry Dosing Systems – Peristaltic tubes require changing every 6-9 months, but if they have been left dormant, the tube has remained in a compressed position for far too long, compromising the finished results. A simple tube change will avoid unnecessary and costly downtime.
  • Dishwash Dosing Systems – The pandemic has hit the catering industry hard. When the sector is given the go-ahead, they need to be 100% operational and, once again, ensuring that peristaltic tubes are changed and that filters are cleaned will mean that go means go and not amber.
