In an article by Supermarket News on August 26, 2011, the large supermarket chain, Wegmans, announced a move to use a floor scrubber in its stores that uses only water to clean. This move also dovetails with AmeriVap Systems announcement of The Blitzer, a chemical free dry steam cleaner specifically designed for supermarkets and retail foodservice.

The Blitzer, features a stainless steel construction and uses 110 v electricity, common to all installations. The highly portable unit produces steam of only 5% moisture, 220 degrees at the point of contact, and an adjustable pressure of up to 70psi. This low moisture steam equates to only ounces of water used per hour, unlike conventional cleaning methods. The unit also has a 24/7 operating capability and multiple attachments. The Blitzer is available in two formats: a self contained unit on casters with a easy to maneuver handle, and on a chrome cart that allows the user to store all of its attachments and towels, while remaining extremely portable. Both formats come with an included detergent/germicidal tank that is automatically injected with the touch of a button, should the establishment care to do so.

AmeriVap systems, a pioneer in dry steam vapor cleaners recognized a need for a product specific to supermarkets that would effectively clean and sanitize as well as conserve water, enabling companies to address sustainability targets. This information was gleaned through customer feedback from existing grocery customers. “We started designing a commercial steam cleaner suited specifically to the needs of retail food service customers and grocery stores over a year ago,” states Werner Diercks, CEO and founder of AmeriVap Systems Inc. “Since our technology has been used very successfully in major supermarket chains over the last number of years, we were able to design a machine incorporating features that were frequently requested. Basically we created a machine that is very portable, easy to use, and capable of cleaning all of the equipment and fixtures found in grocery stores and retail food service establishments.”

Aside from its portability, ease of use was extremely important in designing the machine, since simplicity is often a crucial factor in sanitation procedures in the grocery sector, where many cleaning tasks are done by entry level labor. As the machine uses no chemicals, sanitizes and cleans only with water, reliance on unskilled labor to properly measure chemicals is removed. In addition, reducing chemical expense is not only eco-friendly, but is welcomed by an industry where margins are razor thin.
