What is a pre-rinse spray valve?
A pre-rinse spray valve is a handheld device that uses a spray of water to remove food waste from dishes and utensils before placing them in the dishwasher. In a typical restaurant, dishwasher consumes more than 50% of all the water used in the restaurant, and nearly 50% of that water is used by a pre-rinse spray valve to rinse the dishes before actually washing. In other words, a pre-rinse spray valve consumes a quarter of the water consumed in a restaurant.
A low-flow pre-rinse spray valve is one of the easiest and most cost-effective water saving devices any food service operation can install. The design of low-flow pre-rinse spray valves allows them to use significantly less water than standard models, but without sacrificing cleaning power.
How it can save water and energy?
A traditional spray valves will use from 10 liters to 15 liters water per minute. But a low-flow, pre-rinse spray valve will use around 4 liters of water per minute. Low-flow valves are still powerful enough to rinse dishes, but use far less energy and water.
If the low-flow pre-rinse spray valves uses hot water to rinse dishes so by saving water, you also save energy. Using low flow pre-rinse spray valves is a great method to save money, save water and energy, so help the environment.
