Environmentally Friendly Spray Nozzle Saves Thousands of Dollars While Conserving Water, Sewage and Energy

BETHLEHEM, PA--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - For drought prone areas looking to save water and energy wherever and whenever possible, a new product introduced by Strahman Valves -- the Kwik Clean 3™ pre-rinse nozzle -- is one of the most cost effective and easy-to-use devices available. The nozzle has been tested under the rigors of the ASTM test method for pre-rinse spray nozzles at the Pacific Gas & Electric Food Service Technology Center (FSTC). A summary of the test report can be found at their website: sprayvalves/. The FSTC is an organization that operates under the auspices of the California Public Utility Commission to promote energy efficiency in the food service industry. Its purpose is to evaluate products and services that can save energy and the organization is an active supporter of the California Urban Water Conservation Council.

The Kwik Clean 3 is a high-pressure, high-efficiency, pre-rinse nozzle for use in the restaurant, hospital, university and water utility industries, as well as in mortuaries, pet stores, groceries and supermarkets. It minimizes water consumption and sewage charges, as well as the cost to heat water.

"Over the life of the nozzle, which is warranted for 10 years and constructed of stainless steel, users can save thousands of dollars," says Kevin Carroll, Strahman Vice President - Wash Down Business Unit and Marketing. "When you consider that the entire nation has been suffering from an on-going energy crisis since the 1970s, and some areas of the country are currently suffering from a severe drought; the Kwik Clean 3 should be well received as an extremely friendly tool to our environment."

In addition to saving both energy and water, the nozzle will help users save enough money to pay for itself in a relatively short period of time.

"Even if used only three hours a day," concludes Mr. Carroll, "the nozzle still saves 60 gallons of water and sewage per day more than standard nozzles, and provides annual cost savings at today's energy rates of almost $500.00 over many other nozzles on the market." (This number is based on average utility costs for water, sewage and energy and compares the Strahman Kwik Clean 3 to standard nozzles on the market.)
