IMC/Teddy Compartment Sinks: The Best Defense Against COVID-19

Indoor dining is slowly coming back to life in the new normal. That means your reusable dishes, utensils & other wares are going back to work & must be thoroughly sanitized. With the updated FDA guidelines regarding ware washing, you’ll need a fully capable compartment sink to get the job done.

In this article, we’ll explain the importance of having a compartment sink in your establishment & offer up some IMC/Teddy products to serve your needs. Let’s begin.

Why Do You Need a Compartment Sink Exactly?

We’ve spoken before about the complete ins & outs of a compartment sink. There’s no question that compartment sinks are absolutely mandatory in every commercial kitchen, large or small. With the advent of COVID-19, compartment sinks are more important than ever.

The truth of the matter is compartment sinks offer the best way to wash, rinse & sanitize your wares. With indoor dining coming back, compartment sinks are your best ally in fighting bacteria/viruses & keeping your guests safe.

How? Let’s briefly run through the intricate process of a typical 3 compartment sink.

Essentially, compartment sinks enable you to scrape away any leftover food on your wares. The first compartment is used to scrub all surfaces of the wares in warm, soapy water. Sanitizing will not destroy bacteria & viruses if excess grime is in the way.

In the second compartment, the previously cleaned items are rinsed in warm water. Soap residue can prevent sanitizer from killing germs. The key is this: complete rinsing makes sanitizing more effective.

In the third compartment, your wares are soaked in a chemical sanitizing solution or hot water. The items are completely submerged. The crucial final step is to let your wares air-dry. Towel drying may contaminate your newly washed items & you will have to repeat the whole process over again. Here’s a look in visual form:
