A Quick Story About Spartan Scientific’s Custom Solutions
In 2018, a commercial dishwasher manufacturer presented Spartan Scientific with a problem that has been plaguing and costing them money for years. The problem was that their dishwashers were always being used within a variety of different settings, locations, and applications. Depending on location, some of the dishwashers were receiving 10 psi of water pressure, while others were receiving 100 psi of water pressure.
Different water pressures are a very common issue, but herein lies the problem; each dishwashing cycle requires approximately 4 GPM (Gallons Per Minute) to effectively clean, sanitize, and rinse. In addition to the 4 GPM requirement, they also required the valve body to be made of a composite plastic, be able to withstand 180° F, and work at many different voltages including 24 VDC, 120 VAC, and 240 VAC.
So, to maximize efficiency while saving energy, Spartan Scientific designed, prototyped, and manufactured a custom one piece solenoid valve solution that incorporates an internal “Flow Restrictor”, which in turn eliminates potential leak points. This flow restrictor will take whatever water pressure the dishwasher is seeing and will meter the inlet to the solenoid valve so that exactly 4 gallons of water is used in each cycle.
Because of Spartan Scientific’s wide range of capabilities and resources, Spartan was able to design and manufacture a valve body made of composite plastic that could withstand temperatures of 180° by using injection molding. The last requirement were the voltages, but because Spartan Scientific offers all of their products with every standard voltage, this was easily completed.
This is just one example of how Spartan Scientific has been known to help their customers save money, save time, and get peace of mind. The Spartan Scientific company has continued to grow by enhancing the customer experience and forging meaningful customer relationships, all while producing the highest quality products that are both practical and reliable.
