Why should Hand Sanitiser dispenser choose the food-grade silicone tube produced in the clean room?

Expanding hand hygiene infrastructure in public spaces is recommended by the World Health Organization, but even if officials lack the resource to invest heavily in new equipment they have an opportunity to improve health outcomes. The pandemic has drawn the public’s focus to hand hygiene practices like never before, and public health departments and government officials can continue to educate people on proper hand hygiene behaviour. It the single most effective and economical measure that they can encourage.

So, choose a qualified hand hygiene dispenser is important to us, it concerns to our hand safety. Different from Soap dispenser, hand sanitizer dispenser is using alcohol based hand sanitiser or hand disinfectant, requires higher corrosion resistance and stability of the dispenser than soap solution.

Dust-free workshop

A dust-free workshop does not mean that there is no dust, but only to control the dust within a certain amount. For the production of food-grade silicone tubes, the dust particles on the surface of the product cannot be seen with the naked eye, and it is safer and more stable than other products during use. It is well known that the surface of silica gel is bright and sticky after extrusion, especially with strong adsorption capacity, it is easy to absorb dust in the air and stick to the surface, making it feel a little dirty, even if it is wiped with alcohol, it is a temporary solution. Starting from the production environment of food-grade silicone tubes, the entire workshop is a dust-free workshop, so why is there dust?

Food-grade silicone tube is a product that can be directly contacted by the human body. It requires great safety features. It requires that the product cannot produce harmful gases or substances (including dust) that are harmful to the environment, human body, or volatilize (including dust) from the source to the production. The environment where the silicone tube is made is not clean enough. Due to the characteristics of silicone, vacuuming (the dust carries many bacteria) will still have an impact on the human body if it is not sterilized. The dust is adsorbed on the surface of the food-grade silicone tube and the user directly This dust is directed to the human body. The food-grade silicone tube produced in the dust-free workshop will hardly stick to dust and naturally will not have any effect on the human body.

Another advantage of dust-free workshops for food-grade silicone tubes is that impurities will be greatly reduced. After purchasing products, enterprises will find some impurities (called particles in the industry) on the surface or wall thickness of transparent food-grade silicone tubes. These impurities Most of the sources of occurrence are in the process of extrusion and compaction. Because the environment is not strict enough, the dust (≥500 micron particles) in the air falls into the rubber compound (it is difficult to find it with soft eyes). The food-grade silicone tube shows that there are particles on the surface that affect the appearance of the product. If the particles are large and dusty, this food-grade silicone tube cannot be sold externally (it does not meet the food safety regulations). In the silicone industry, the clean room will be kept at a stable temperature (the temperature of the machine cannot be changed continuously, and the central air conditioner can reach other air conditioners with unstable temperature). The clean room is a closed environment and the indoor temperature should be controlled at 21°~ Between 26°, a stable temperature will effectively slow down the hardening and cross-linking speed. This can only be operated in a closed environment and the clean room can meet this requirement. The temperature stability in the clean room will affect the food grade silicone The tolerance range of tube hardness is positive and negative. The more stable the temperature of the dust-free workshop during the time of the silica gel compaction, the better. Only the airtight and clean environment of the dust-free workshop can do it. The longer the food-grade silicone tube material is exposed outdoors, the better. It also means that the positive and negative tolerances of the hardness of the finished product are larger. The positive and negative tolerances of the hardness of food-grade silicone tubes are generally controlled at about ±3 degrees under the constant temperature and clean environment of the dust-free workshop, and the food-grade silicone tubes produced in the dust-free workshop are not used. The positive and negative tolerances are between ±5-7°, which proves that the hardness stability of the food-grade silicone tube produced in the dust-free workshop is greater than that of the food-grade silicone tube in the ordinary environment.

In general, dust-free workshops are indispensable for silicone products companies, representing the company’s external strength. At the same time, they are safe and stable for food-grade silicone tubes, medical silicone tubes, pharmaceutical silicone tubes, and peristaltic pump silicone tubes. There is a lifting effect.

Ningbo Changqi

Founded in 2003, Ningbo Changqi (Doctorclean®) is one of the first hand hygiene products manufacturers in China and the earliest manufacturer in the medical disinfection market. The whole factory covers an area of 30,000 square meters, has its own injection workshop, assembly workshop and packaging workshop, with several sets of automation equipment, in order to ensure the quality of the important parts of the product 100% self-made. Main products include: manual (push type) hand sanitizer dispenser, non-contact (automatic induction) hand sanitizer, elbow operated disinfectant dispenser, etc., widely used in hospitals, schools, airports, stations, shopping malls, office buildings and other public places.

All materials of the dispensers, including parts, are produced with new materials, which not only guarantees the service life of the product, but also makes the product look more glossy and textured. Among them, the hose structure of the distributor tube has always used the silicone hose produced in the dust-free workshop. Compared with the ordinary hose structure, it has better chemical performance and logistics performance. You can rest assure on using the alcohol based hand saitiser & hand disinfectant inside Doctorclean®’s hand sanitiser dispenser.
