The Proper Guide to Choosing Chemical Dispensers for Your Facility

Keeping a clean and hygienic facility is important for any business, institution or commercial space. Especially during these times where cleanliness determines the safety of the operational environment. However, with the number of cleaning chemicals present, it can be difficult to properly and efficiently apply them while keeping the environment and people safe. That's where chemical dispensers come in - these devices provide a means to safely and accurately dispense cleaning agents into the proper dilution ratios. In this blog, we'll be discussing the proper guide to choosing chemical dispensers for your facility.

Determine your facility's cleaning needs - The first step in choosing the right chemical dispenser is to determine what type of cleaning tasks need to be accomplished. The dispenser will be required to handle and dispense the appropriate chemicals for the specific cleaning application. For instance, a commercial kitchen may need to clean oils, grease, and grime from cooking surfaces whereas a medical facility may require sanitization of patient areas. Each of these tasks requires the right chemicals which can be matched to a proper dispenser during the selection process.

Consider the type and size of the facility - After determining the cleaning needs, consideration should be given to the size and layout of the facility. The size determines the number of dispenser units needed. A small space may only require a single unit for a specific cleaning agent, while a large area may require multiple units with multiple chemicals. The layout of the facility also affects the placement of the dispensers. Dispensers should be located in areas that prevent blockages, avoid traffic areas and easy to access but not in areas where it would be unsafe for the operators.

Look for automated or manual units - Chemical dispensers can come in both manual and automated models. Each type has its advantages depending on the environment and cleaning task. Manual units are beneficial in small facilities while automated units are better suited to larger spaces with more intensive cleaning needs. The automated dispensers take the guesswork out of dilution ratios, ensuring the correct ratios of water and chemical are used every time which reduces wastage and labour costs.

Consider sustainability - Another important factor to consider when choosing a dispenser is its environmental impact. Cleaning chemicals can have an impact on the environment and health if not used and disposed of properly. Look for dispensers that are go-green approved, such as the ones with sustainability certifications. It's also important to check if the chemicals being dispensed are eco-friendly and safe for the environment.

Check out the latest guide to dispensing options - Finally, it's wise to consider the latest guide to dispensing options, such as the one provided by Dustbane. This guide offers a broad range of products with great recommendations for various specific cleaning applications. The guide provides details on different types of dispensers and their usages, the benefits of each, and how to choose the best one for your facility. Getting familiar with the different types of dispensers can save time and money during the selection process.

Conclusion: Choosing the right chemical dispenser for your facility can be overwhelming, but following these steps can ensure you pick the right one for your specific needs. By taking into account the cleaning requirements, size of the facility, automated or manual units, sustainability concerns, and relying on recommendations from the latest guides, you can make an informed decision that will make a positive impact on the cleanliness and safety of your facility, employees, and the environment.
