FDA states that most chemicals require a dwell time for effective kill rate. In order for wipes to be effective they have to be 70% or greater of alcohol base. 70% of greater alcohol can deteriorate your cart handles and metal baskets. The Arch utilizes a PH nuetral chlorine dioxide that will not effect your carts. We have partnered and conducted testing with the largest cart manufacturers around the world to back this claim. The Arch is spraying the entire cart with a focus on high touch areas on the top cart surfaces.
We set out to find a happy medium with “wet” carts vs wipes. We atomize the spray making less than 25 PPM when a raindrop can be 500 PPM. This ideal spray can be compared to fog, you feel the moisture but not “wet”. The unit is designed for incoming carts into the holding area, which will allow for required sanitizing sit time.
Yes, we are a distributor for a chemical that is approved by FDA to kill Covid -19, and has no effects on the grocery cart plastics or metals.
You can fill the tank from the top of the unit through the filler neck.
We believe in building American made quality and provide a 1-year parts warranty with a 2-year option, click here for more details.
The Arch is very simple to maintain, we recommend a one time a year check over to replace air filter and clean nozzles. We have partnered with a national service team.
