ATLANTA, November 18, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) - Zep Inc. (NYSE: ZEP), a leading consumable chemical packaged goods company that manufactures a wide variety of high-performance maintenance and cleaning chemicals, today announced that Zep Distribution will launch two new metered air care dispensers: TimeMist® Settings and the TimeMist® Micro.
The dispensers will be featured at Zep Inc.'s booth at ISSA/INTERCLEAN and have been selected as a finalist in the 2013 ISSA Innovation Award, which recognizes the cleaning industry's top product innovations of the year.
The modern, sleek dispensers are available in black/metallic and white/metallic to complement every décor. A hinged access door allows for fast and efficient servicing of both units, while a magnetic lock on TimeMist® Settings offers the added benefit of secure and consistent delivery of fragrance.
"These dispensers are ideal for most any commercial application due to their improved performance and ability to be paired with out trusted TimeMist and Yankee Candle® metered aerosol brands," said Steve Nichols, Group President of Zep Inc. "Not only do they offer updated technology and mechanics, along with a more modern aesthetic, they are also able to deliver a substantial cost-in-use advantage."
Users can control the amount or intensity of fragranced metered out (7.5, 15, or 30-minute intervals) with a flexible, easy-to-use interface found behind the access door. Innovative light-sensing technology, paired with mode setting options, ensures that the dispenser runs only when needed: all day, only when lights are on, or only when lights are off.
The unit can be powered by either two AA batteries for one year of service life or four AA batteries for two years of service life, significantly reducing operational spend when compared to dispensers that run on C batteries or less-efficient AA dispensers. For added convenience, a light on the unit indicates when to replace the batteries.
