Key points to consider when buying a dishwash dosing system
6 February 2017
Thanks to innovations and advancements in technology, there is a constant supply of chemical dosing systems on the market. When companies decide on a supplier, cost considerations generally form the basis for the decision-making processes but there are additional factors that should be taken in consideration.
Based on years of industry experience and customer feedback we think that the following are important points to consider when choosing a dishwash dosing system:
Compact product design
Chemical dosing systems are often installed in areas with limited space; therefore, a compact and robust product design is very important. Brightwell Dispensers Quantura range of dosing equipment has a compact, robust and professional product design that fits into any modern kitchen environment.
Accurate and consistent dosing of dishwash chemicals
The accurate and consistent dosing of dishwash chemicals is essential to deliver high quality cleaning results. Brightwell Dispensers’ Quantura range of dosing equipment incorporates innovative microprocessor controlled dosing technology to ensure consistent and precise dosing of dishwash detergent and rinse-aid. Accurate flow rates are easy to control and to regulate, and through Brightwell Dispensers’ unique special pulsing technology even super low flow rates for dishwash chemical injection can be achieved. The integrated intuitive programming interface offers a wide range of configuration options for an extensive range of operating modes.
Cost efficient equipment
Chemical dosing systems allow businesses not only to maximise cleaning performance but also to forecast their cleaning costs in a more efficient way. In addition, these systems accurately dispense the correct amount of chemical needed each time, without the risk of chemical spillage, misdosing and pilferage.
Easy installation and maintenance
Ease of installation is vital so that the job can be done quickly and efficiently, whilst minimising the impact on the kitchen operation itself. Brightwell Dispensers Quantura Range comes pre-wired to speed up the installation time and has a wall bracket with an integrated spirit level for easy installation. Additionally, the intuitive programming helps to speed up the programming process. The units are easy to clean and the quick-access front-mounted pump cover allows for easy changing of peristaltic tubes.
Is the chosen dosing system compatible with the chemicals? Chemical compatibility tests will ensure that the chemicals are suitable for the chosen dispenser. Test procedures should include pumping tests to determine the average life cycle of the components with the relevant chemical and submersion tests to identify any erosion or compatibility issues with the materials. Brightwell Dispensers offers their customers* a chemical compatibility test to ensure that specific chemicals are compatible with the chosen dispenser.
System access codes
When it comes to dosing systems, it is important to ensure that only authorised personnel have access to the system. Our Quantura dosing systems come with security access codes to eliminate unauthorised access to the unit.
Suppliers should offer a good pre/after-sales service as well as customer service. It is important that a supplier is interested in the long-term success of your company and is able to provide installation/maintenance advice/training for the equipment you purchase.
While this is not an exhaustive list, we hope it gives some insight into what you should look for when buying a new dishwash dosing system.
