Safe Chemical Dispensing and Containment in the Hospitality Industry

The importance of safe chemical dispensing in the hospitality industry, as a whole, cannot be understated. Sanitary food service, restrooms, and hotel rooms are only a few necessities when it comes to hygiene for this industry; and safe, resourceful chemical dilution and dispensing are key factors for the hospitality industry to provide a clean and safe environment.

Specifically in hotels, the wide spectrum of sanitary and chemical needs indicates a great need for closed loop chemical dispensing systems. A closed loop system promotes safety, ensuring safe chemical containment and dispensing, which reduces the risk of injury. Additionally, a closed loop system promotes savings – if expensive chemicals are spilled or not accurately diluted it results in lost dollars. When a variety of chemicals are being used for many different areas in one industry, proper containment and dispensing become important to meet safety and sanitary standards.

At RD Industries, our closed loop technology provides this safety and accuracy benefit at all stages of the process through precise dilutions and dispensing technologies. In partnership with our customers, we strive to serve the hospitality industry by providing them with the safest, most cost-effective solutions on the market.

 

Rewind: Taking a Look Back…

RD Industries partners with local High School to beta test the SafTfil® Wall Mount Dispenser.

In the spring of 2013, an RD sales executive approached a local high school to help us with our final stages of testing our SafTfil® Wall Mount Dispenser in a real-world application.  The school welcomed the opportunity to partner with RD and our sales executive installed Wall Dispensers in the janitorial closets throughout the school.

Our Wall Dispenser was developed with the end-user in mind – keeping performance, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility in mind.  One- or two-port modules with the ability to link up to six ports together and a choice of flow rates, provides our customers with the possibility of several combinations.  Also, our dispensers were designed to be maintenance-free.  With their limited footprint and economical construction you can easily replace a unit for less than the cost of a service call.

RD installed dual-port, dual-flow units at the high school to provide janitors with the flexibility for quickly filling bottles or mop buckets.  Periodic check-ins with the school/janitors during the beta testing provided us with quality feedback during our testing period.  The units proved to be beneficial for the janitors to quickly dispense diluted cleaning solutions, as well as provided accurate chemical dilutions, while keeping safety in check with a closed loop system.  Also, the school can attest to the unit’s durability as they have been in use for over a year now and all of the units are still in place!

The SafTfil® Wall Mount Dispenser underwent further testing and was certified under the Uniform Plumbing Code, as well as the National Plumbing Code of Canada, in the summer of 2013 (click here to view our certificate of listing).  Since our official launch in early fall of 2013, thousands of units have been installed in a variety of end-user applications: from hospitals in California to schools in Canada to nursing homes in Texas to hotels in New York as well as applications in Brazil, Australia, and Europe.

RD Industries provides a full line of Closed Loop Chemical Containment and Dispensing products, including our SafTfil® Wall Mount Dispenser and Portable Dispensing Unit (PDU).  When used in conjunction with RD Bottle Inserts and Cap Adapters, our customers “close the loop” on their chemical dispensing system, providing safe and accurate dilution control systems for end-users.  Click here to learn more about the SafTfil® Wall Mount Dispenser.  Please contact us today for more information!
