For outsiders, getting a glimpse of some of the tools of the trade of an industry can sometimes be interesting. We all share certain tool requirements for hygiene and sanitation – brooms and brushes, buckets and mops－regardless of whether it is for personal home use or industrial application. It is interesting to see how industry has shaped those tools, however, when they contribute to commercial production. A snapped handle or broken head might be frustrating, but no big deal when you are cleaning your lounge. But at work, every tool, down to the most insignificant, has a cost value, both in its replacement and in how its performance affects production.
Again, outsiders might think that is no big deal – so what if your mop handle broke? It still works, right? Or, as another example, if your flour scoop at home has snapped off halfway through, that is OK, because you only ever scoop around 10 scoops a month anyway when you bake a loaf on occasion. What if you are baking a few thousand loaves a day? What if you travel several hundred metres or more with your mop each working day too? On that scale, every malfunction pops up as a visible cost, which is why industry has tailored various tools for optimum long-term performance.
Sometimes Smart Is Not a Complex Thing, It Is Simple
As a case in point, while domestic scoops for food ingredients and the like can be relatively flimsy things, at an industrial scale, that simply will not do. Scoops are essential tools throughout many industries, including the food industry, and when you are digging into ingredients with them eight hours a day, they need a lot more engineering behind them to perform as commercial tools. Scoops at play in industry resemble the domestic version but have some key differentiators. Right off the bat, industrial ones have optimised ergonomics in their handles and working area too. They will be formed from a single piece to eliminate bacteria-harbouring crevices, and they will have a known or measured capacity.
The Vikan scoops, for example, are made from extremely tough polypropylene, but they are also metal-detectable, having metal fragments embedded within them. That is because tools might chip or fragment in the food processing industry, for example, and such contamination can be easily weeded out with the fragments being picked up by a metal detector.
As industrial-grade tools, Vikan scoops can also tolerate temperatures from as low as -20°C all the way through to around 121°C. Upon closer inspection, not quite your Saturday morning bread loaf flour scoop after all! Rather, scoops and in fact all other cleaning and processing tools have, in their industrial versions, loads of smart architecture, regardless of the fact that they might appear to be the same as the domestic equivalent at first glance.
