For facilities where mobility is important and space is limited, pre-portioned chemical packets could be a helpful addition or alternative to chemical proportioners.

These pre-measured, concentrated products come in a variety of sizes and chemical compositions. Some can be dissolved right into a bucket or bottle of water and others will need to be mixed, but all are simple to use.

However, these products are not fool proof and will require training. Although chemicals are pre-measured, workers might think that if a little chemical is good, a lot must be better, mixing more than the allotted amount of product into the water. This could become a safety concern and lead to ineffective product mixes that leave behind sticky residue. Education, training, labeling and control will need to be highlighted with the use of these products.
