Glassware Washing Process- Tips for Laboratory & Life Science

Glassware Washing Process

We have answered some of the questions our customer had about how to improve the glassware washing process in their facilities. Our Steelco equipment offers options and solutions that are ideal to solve little issues that any lab facilities come across during the everyday work load. Here some of the questions and answer from our experts:

There are times when we process twice the normal amount of workload, how can we organise our wash room?

Steelco has developed sophisticated dedicated drying cabinets, tailored to accept washed glassware on racks from washers without changing baskets. This solution allows to slide racks full of glassware into the drying cabinet while uploading another washer cycle.

How do we ensure chemicals are not condensed onto the glassware and that are dosed correctly during the cycle?

• Always check the flow meters to ensure correct chemical dose is administered.
• Measure the PH in the water.
• Measure TOC of final rinse water to meet
the cycle acceptance limits.
• Check and measure the conductivity meter of purified water in final rinse.
• Check the purified water system and the maintenance of the distribution system.

I have purified water in the final rinse, do I need a softener for the cycle?

In hard water areas it is advised to use on-board water softeners to reduce permanent hardness in the incoming hot and cold water during the washing. Calcium build up not only reduces the life of your system, it also presents a serious and considerable risk potential for cross contamination within the hydraulic circuit of your washer. Steelco offers fully integrated softening solutions that will protect the machine, ensure ultra clean glassware and stable water feed to reproduce the validated cycles. Softened water also reduces the amount of chemicals required which is advantageous on revenue and environmental grounds.
