Save Thousands of Litres of Water a Year

T&S Water Saving

Dishwasher manufacturers go to great lengths to ensure that their products use as little water as possible. But the pre-rinse spray, used to rinse excess waste product from the plates before they go into the dishwasher is generally unregulated. Pre-rinsing is an essential stage in an efficient dishwashing process as it keeps the wash water cleaner for longer and loosens remaining deposits for a faster wash. After the initial tank fill, a modern, environmentally friendly dishwasher uses as little as 2 litres or less of fresh water to wash each rack of tableware. But the pre-rinsing operation can be using up to 15 litres of fresh water a minute with the pre-rinse units commonly seen in the UK. The same pre-rinse performance can be achieved using just 2.46 litres of water a minute using the Low Flow spray valves developed in America by T&S Brass. Low Flow valves direct a concentrated fan of water onto the plate for a fast and efficient washing action with the minimum of waste. This can save a busy commercial catering organisation up to 500,000 litres of water a year. Good for the environment and the balance sheet.

T&S Low Flow valves have a universal fitting which means that it can replace the standard spray valve on many existing pre-rinse spray units. It is also available on a wide range of complete pre-rinse units, available for single water supply or hot and cold supplies and can be supplied with or without a basin filling faucet.

T&S introduced the first pre-rinse unit to the foodservice industry back in 1947 and since that time has set the standard for innovation in its field. First Choice Catering Spares Ltd is the exclusive supplier of T&S pre-rinse units and hose reels to the UK commercial catering market.
