A Drip sink or cleaner sink is used in factories, hospitals, laundries, mining, schools, public ablutions and many more places. They are designed to clean mops and are used to empty waste from buckets during washing. These units are all wall mounted. Taps are wall mounted above the sink to help flush the waste away. Standard wastes are used but models with larger wastes are called slop hoppers.
LDS Drip sink
The LDS drip sinks is ideal for janitor work. It is wall mounted and serves as a standard deep wash basin with the advantage of a bucket grid (with 10 mm round bars) which can be swiveled upwards. The sink is 600 x 505 x 250 mm and manufactured from Grade 304 (18/10) stainless steel 0,9mm thick and with a 40mm waste outlet. The drip sink is mounted to the wall with stainless steel Eagle brackets which is supplied with the sink.
Install the drip sink 600 mm from the top of the rim to the floor. This is slightly lower than normal sinks but essential for comfortable working procedures, especially when lifting a heavy bucket full of water up to the drip sink.
For a more industrial strength drip sink use the DSG Drip sink or cleaner sink.
There are two types of taps recommended, both are wall mounted as deck mounted taps are not recommended. Once can either use the metered 101R self closing bib tap or the 101D demand bib tap which is also wall mounted (see images below)
