Ecolab- Mary Browns Installation Course

Installation course for Ecolab equipment at Mary Browns Restaurants

Project Background and Arriving at Store

Introduction

Ecolab is a chemical company that provides various forms of cleaning chemicals and sanitizers to businesses like restaurants, retailers, hotels and grocery stores.

Ecolab has recently won a bid to re-outfit the majority of Mary Browns restaurants  with their products right across Canada.

As a field technician you will be a critical component to a successful installation rollout. Please study this course carefully and be sure to carry a physical copy of the provided guide with you in the field. 

Installation Parameters

  • Installs are to be conducted between the hours of 8am -10am and  1pm–5pm 
  • Weekend installs are permitted following the time parameters above.
  • All equipment and product from previous supplier should be neatly boxed up and left with the restaurant manager. Instruct the Restaurant Manager to review their municipality’s chemical disposal process when removing the Avmor products from their Restaurant. Installers should also ensure boxes, labels, bags, etc. from QSR install kits are cleared from floor and shelving areas and disposed of properly.
  • Ensure staff are trained on both how to test sanitizer as well as how to replace empty product bags before you leave the site. Ecolab personnel will be providing in-depth training after our install, but it is important staff knows how to do these 2 things immediately.
  • Bring all remaining equipment with you when leaving a site.  

PPE

The safety and well-being of our technicians is and always will be of great concern to CCIS.

Safety has to be first when starting any job and wearing proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), especially proper eye wear is mandatory while on a CCIS site.

It does not matter whether it is simply removing a soap dispenser or installing dilution units, there are hazards in what we do each and every day. Identifying and taking steps to minimize these hazards goes a long way in protecting your safety.

Site Conduct

Good housekeeping standards must be maintained in all work areas at all times. The contractor must:

  • Clean up any dust that may result from drilling for installations
  • Must clean up any spills/debris/dust that results from transportation of equipment or construction
  • Clean up any debris left from old equipment.
  • Maintain a clean and organized working area where product is staged/stored.

No food, drink, or gum chewing is allowed in your work area.

Dress Code

CCIS Technicians must observe a dress code that projects a professional image. A CCIS collared shirt, name badge/photo identification and lanyard will be provided and must be worn to all sites. 

Technicians must arrive well groomed and presentable. No jeans will be allowed onsite. 

Electronic Sign Off

Each technician  will be required to submit an electronic sign off form for each site completed.

The sign off can be completed from a laptop computer or a smartphone. A URL link will be provided.

Your submissions play a critical part in reporting and project management. As such, these submissions are mandatory.

Compartment Sink Click & Clean Installation

Installation Protocol

During this component of the installation, you will learn how to mount the 2 Valve Click & Click Dispenser at the Compartment sink.

The next several slides will take you through the complete installation of the unit. Please note that the Click & Clean unit pictured in the instruction slides are yellow and red. The units being installed for the Mary Brown's roll-out will be red and blue (like in the examples below)

Compartment Sink Diagram

Remove Sink Stickers







Remove all previous sink compartment stickers before beginning. Use a razor scraper to help get them off if you experience difficulties 





Apply new compartment sink stickers to replace the old stickers you just removed. 

Mounting the Dispenser (1/3)

Hold the unit up to the wall and mark top 3 holes for drilling.

Drill holes for wall anchors with 9/32” or ¼" drill bit. Use dampened paper towel to catch dust.

Install wall anchors

Mounting the Dispenser (2/3)

Install screws - Do NOT overtighten.

Slide dispenser into bottom slots then curl top part of dispenser into top slots.

This is a good time to clean up any dust from drilling.

Mounting the Dispenser (3/3)

Double Check the Orientation of the Sink and Dispenser "Wash, Rinse, Sanitize"

Make sure to turn ball valves so they are in a horizontal position and that they turn freely.

Select and insert appropriate metering tips. Purple for Wash side and Light Purple for Sanitize Side.

Above: Wash side barb + Purple metering tip.

Above: Sanitize side barb + Light Purple metering tip.

Installing Tubing (1/2)

10. Cut product tubes to reach from hose barbs to Check Valves (Note Arrow on Check Valve) and to Mating Caps

* Ensure arrow on Check Valves point towards the dispenser*

Install Product Tube Flag and Mating Cap (In this case at the Sink the cap is Black) on Product Tubing.

Product tubing is installed from the metering tip/hose barb to the bottom of the chemical concentrate container

Installing Tubing (2/2)

Secure all pickup tubing with anchors and zip ties so that the tubing is tight and straight to the wall and out of the line of work at the sink, zip ties every 18 inches

 

Always ensure that product line is hidden when possible… IE: Run under sink instead of over when possible.

Installing Discharge & Water Supply

Slide end of discharge tube (Blue for Soap, Red for Sanitizer) over the discharge outlet eductor. Run hot water over the first 3 inches of the tube before pushing it on the eductor.

Connect a water supply hose 3/8” in diameter to the water inlet swivel.

Connect the other (female) end of the hose to the water supply and turn the supply on

Faucet Adapters

You will potentially be required to use an adapter when attaching the dispenser to the water supply. T&S, Chicago & Fisher adapters will be included with each kit. It is critical that you take the unused adapters with you when leaving the site and store them in a safe place. 


At trial sites T&S was the most commonly used adapter, followed by Chicago and lastly Fisher. 




From left to right: T&S, Chicago , & Fischer.

Installing Product Racks

Level rack on the wall off the floor 6 inches. Mark 3 positions for drilling.

Drill holes with ¼ " drill bit and install anchors and Screws with Washers. Leave ½" away from Wall

Hang rack on the screws, tighten screws and place sticker .

Installing Test Strip Holder

Select location of test Strip Holder away from sink – to prevent test strips from falling into water.

 

Drill 2 holes with ¼ " drill bit and install anchors in wall. Also Drill holes in Test Strip Holder.

Screw Test Strip Holder to the Wall. Insert test Strips.

Reverse Sink Install & Wallchart

24. If the Sink Orientation is Reverse: Meaning that the Wash sink is on the far right followed by Rinse in the middle and Sanitize on the far left – We have to place a reverse label sticker on the dispenser like the one on the left of the picture below. Also must switch Discharge Hoses and Product tubing to match.

Use Ecolab provided silicone to mount Wallchart.

Priming for Use

Remove air from the system by briefly turning the ball valves

Open one ball valve to start flow of water and concentrate solution.

Run it until the tube is primed.

Repeat priming on the other side.

Place Wallchart

Place the 3-compartment/2-compartment sink wall chart next to the dispenser (Use caulk on back of all wall charts, adhesive tape provided will not adhere properly causing the wall chart to fall off the wall). 

Ensure placement of wall chart is in an area that minimizes the opportunity for water damage.

Testing the Sanitizer

  • 1. Withdraw and tear off 1 strip of quat test paper.
  • 2. Immerse paper in solution for 10 seconds (DO NOT get excess foam on test strip)
  • 3. Remove, let dry for 30 seconds and immediately compare with specimen colors on color chart to determine corresponding parts per million (ppm)

What NOT to do

Above: Remember to Caulk holes in walls after removing old equipment!

Above: Remember to remove old wall anchors after removing old equipment!

Mop Sink Click & Clean Installation

Installation Protocol

During this component of the installation, you will learn how to mount the 2 Valve Click & Click Dispenser at the Mop Sink

The next several slides will take you through the complete installation of the unit. 

Mop Sink Diagram

Preparing the Dispenser 1/3

There are several steps we must do before the dispenser can be mounted. 



Start by unscrewing both knobs from the face of the dispenser. Be sure to hold the knobs in the off (horizontal) position while doing this.






Remove the manifold from the casing 





Replace the left white eductor with the green eductor found in your kit. Attach the bottle fill discharge tube to the green eductor. 

Preparing the Dispenser 2/3






Now, remove both stickers from the dispenser.





Apply the two brown Mop Bucket/ Bottle Fill stickers to the dispenser. 





Insert the dark blue metering tip into the barb of the green eductor (bottle fill) and the turquoise metering tip into the barb of the white eductor (mop bucket fill)





Connect small section of product tubing from barbs to check valves on both eductors.

Preparing the Dispenser 3/3




Reattach the manifold to the metal casing. Be sure to hold the knobs in the horizontal position while screwing them in. 




Attach the water connection elbow to the brass inlet on the dispenser. 






Attach the bucket fill discharge hose to the white eductor. 




Attach each product line to T Connector. 







The dispenser is fully prepped. We can now move on to the mounting phase of the installation. 

Mounting the Dispenser 1/2






Start by mounting the Dispenser back plate within the mop sink enclosure.






Insert the fully prepped Dispenser into the back plate. Slide the top in first, then the bottom. 






Mount the product rack in the mop closet close to the dispenser. Be sure to get manager approval of where you are installing it. Ensure the rack is under the dispenser. 







Attach the black cap to the purple outlet on the product bag. Ensure the cap and outlet are flush. Run the product line attach to the cap up to the T connector leading to the dispenser


** Be sure to secure all product tubing with zip ties so they are neat and out of the way.**

Mounting the Dispenser 2/2




Attach the brass Y valve to the water hook-up in the mop sink. 

Attach the water connection hose to one of the outlets on the Y valve 

Attach the water connection hose to the white elbow on the dispenser. Make sure to tighten the metal clamp to securely attach it.  





Attach a water connection hose to the other connection on the Y valve. This will allow the user to dispense fresh water when they require it. 

Mounting the Dispenser 3/3

Wall Charts & Spray Bottle Rack




Install the Mop Sink Wall Chart and Product Guide Wall Chart next to the dispenser (Use caulk on back of all wall charts, adhesive tape provided will not adhere properly causing the wall chart to fall off the wall). Ensure placement of wall chart is in an area that minimizes the opportunity for water damage.




Install the Spray Bottle Rack in a convenient location for users. Be sure to check with the manager to confirm the placement location is ideal.  



Be sure to fill up each type of spray bottle and place it on the rack. Ready availability of the product will help ensure users are actively using their new cleaning program.  

Each type of product bottle gets a different type of trigger attachment. See above for a visual of each trigger type and its corresponding product. 

In order to fill up the Glass Cleaner Spray Bottle, first fill to the neck line with water. 

Next inset the Product Chamber into the neck of the bottle. Insert the Glass Cleaner Spray Trigger through the Chamber and tighten. 

Universal Tool Holder






Consult with the manger/supervisor where they would like the Universal Tool Holder installed. Install it, making sure it is level. Use grout lines to help you if installing on tile. 

Mop + Mop Bucket Assembly

You will find both a green & a blue mop bucket in the packaged boxes. Assembly both of these, and leave them near the Mop Sink. An Ecolab representative will be be making a store visit after your installation on to train staff on proper cleaning procedures. 

You will find two mop heads as well as blue and green mop handles. Assemble these and hang them from the Universal Tool Holder you mounted in the previous step. 

Deck brushes (blue+green) are also included. Assemble them and hang them from the Tool Holder.
