Commercial Touchless Faucets
The innovative commercial touchless faucets are top-of-the-range equipment in industrial kitchens. Their built-in sensors detect motion underneath the faucet and start water flow automatically without needing to touch a handle or knob. All you have to do is move your hands around the sensor to turn the faucet on and off.
How Does a Commercial Touchless Faucet Work?
Touchless commercial kitchen faucets consist of 4 main parts. A sensor located at the base of the spout detects motion and sends a signal to the valve. This signal operates the pull action and opens the valve to allow water flow. Once you withdraw your hands, the valve receives a negative message and drives the push action, blocking the water flow. The power source, electricity or batteries, enables the operation. The final component is the spout, which may have a rigid or swivel type with a chrome or nickel finish.
Benefits of Commercial Touchless Faucets
- The most remarkable benefit is improved sanitation. Industrial kitchens are hectic workspaces with tens of hands touching many surfaces. Sink handles can contain a lot more microorganisms even than a toilet handle. Therefore, faucets can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Through hands, viruses can make their way onto food contact surfaces. Hands-free faucets can prevent cross-contamination.
- Commercial touchless faucets provide easy access to water. Having a sensor for faucet operation is a great convenience also for busy kitchens, where employees often work with full hands.
- Commercial touchless faucets limit the water use in your kitchen, saving gallons of water over the years. As they scarcely leak, you can also save on maintenance costs.
