The Issue with Dilution Control.

27th November 2017

Dilution Control Systems

Dilution control is an issue, almost every facility manager knows the risks associated with workers manually mixing chemicals, the glug-glug idea that the more product they use, the better the cleaning result. Today, managers understand that this method of mixing is inefficient, inaccurate and unsafe, resulting in soaring chemical costs.
When taking shipping costs into the equation, it is more economical to supply chemicals in a concentrated for. Concentrated chemicals don’t include water like the ready-to-use consumer counterparts, they are lighter and come in smaller packages. The end users then simply dilutes the concentrates on site.

A chemical dispensing system is necessary for a number of reasons but most importantly for safety to ensure that the right amount of chemical is being used. Chemical dispensing systems not only save on shipping, but they promote proper cleaning, safety controls and better chemical usage.

 

What Is Dilution Control?

A dilution control dispensing system is designed to automatically mix concentrates with water, after which it is dispensed into secondary containers such as spray bottles and mop buckets, or equipment— all the while protecting workers from being exposed to the chemical.

Using a chemical dispensing system will improve safety by eliminating chemical exposure, but it will also take the guesswork out of diluting chemicals. At the push of a button, precise amounts of concentrates are diluted for end user use.

 

Dilution Control Systems Encourage Safety

Before dilution control systems the best method of measuring chemicals involved pouring the concentrate into a measuring cup or making an educated guess as to the correct amount of chemical to use. These methods could of course lead to using too little of the chemical, which resulted in sub-par cleaning. Or, too much chemical was used, which could damage surfaces.

For example, if an employee added too much chemical to their bucket for cleaning a floor. After they mopped using the too high concentrate solution, the floor could became far too slippery. And as any facility manager knows, a slippery floor is a disaster waiting to happen, potentially resulting in lost business.

 

Dilution Control Systems are Cost Effective

Chemicals are expensive, and a dilution control system ensures that they’re used only in the amount that’s appropriate. They effectively reduce waste by accurately dispensing the correct amount of chemical. It’s significantly cheaper to purchase the concentrated chemical and dilute it onsite.

The Evans e:dose rang with the Dema Extreme 4 eight dilution dispenser (see image below) delivers accuracy and cost control. One dial, four products, for a total of eight dilutions. Total dilution control for the Evans range of super concentrate cleaning products.
