Can You Save Water with Dry Sanitation?

Sterilex dry sanitation products save time, water, and money.

Water shortage is a major issue affecting 40% of the global population and is projected to rise. Cargill, Tyson, Nestle, Coca-Cola, and others have implemented aggressive water sustainability goals to help reduce their environmental footprint while maintaining high food safety standards.

One place to look for water savings is entryways. Replacing a single doorway foamer with a powdered sanitizer, such as Sterilex Ultra Step, can save up to 11,000 gallons of water annually — helping achieve corporate sustainability goals while maintaining, and often reducing, microbial counts at critical control points.

A Sustainable Answer for Dry Sanitation

Sterilex offers manufacturers a pair of powdered floor sanitizers, including its newest product, ProvaStride. ProvaStride provides quality managers at quat-sensitive plants an alternative to Sterilex Ultra Step. Both ProvaStride and Sterilex Ultra Step provide a comprehensive claim set including the ability to kill Cronobacter sakazakii, Listeria monocytogenes and Campylobacter jejuni on hard, non-porous surfaces. They are also both formulated with a blue color that makes them easily distinguishable from white food ingredients.

Increase Operational Efficiency + Sustainability

Save Water. Make every drop count with no more wasted water in doorway foamers. Switch to an EPA-registered solid floor sanitizer and make strides to meet corporate sustainability goals to reduce water usage. As a bonus, Sterilex Ultra Step and ProvaStride can be used on improperly pitched, poor-draining floors and in drain-free areas. Less water equals less micro growth.

Save Money. Make every dollar count. Stop pouring money down the drain with excessive chemical usage and labor costs. In a recent trial, a Sterilex customer switched from liquid quat foot baths to Sterilex Ultra Step, reducing their labor by over 75% — saving approximately $9,360/year.

Save Time. Make every minute count. Quit wasting time titrating doorway foamers, battling equipment maintenance or cleaning mats. Sterilex Ultra Step and ProvaStride are easy to apply and, depending on your facility, may only require daily reapplication. Replenish as needed to ensure footwear and tires are properly covered, only replacing if the product is fully dissolved or visibly wet. In the trial, our customer saved 14 labor hours/week, eliminating daily floor mat cleaning.

Save Equipment. Make every dollar count by eliminating extra equipment maintenance and compressed air. Sterilex powders are compatible with a wide variety of surfaces and are perfect for poor-quality floors. Both are easily applied by hand into a mat or with a broadcast spreader.
