Low-Flow Pre-Rinse Spray Valves

A low-flow pre-rinse spray valve is one of the easiest and most cost effective energy saving devices available to the foodservice operator.

In addition to minimizing water consumption, water heating energy and sewer charges are also reduced. Replacing a typical spray valve that flows up to five gallons of water per minute (gpm) with a low-flow unit can yield the following results:

Low Flow Pre Rinse Spray Valve Cost Comparison Chart

The FSTC recommends a pre-rinse spray valve with a flow rate of 1.15 gallons per minute or less, and with a cleanability performance of 26 seconds per plate or less, based on the ASTM Standard Test Method for Performance of Pre-Rinse Spray Valves.

Federal Efficiency Requirements

The Federal Government has issued guidelines for its facilities when purchasing pre-rinse spray valves. These guidelines, published by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) can be followed by any facility interested in energy efficiency and conservation.
