Kaivac Awarded Patent

Hamilton, OH – June 2, 2010 - The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded a patent to Kaivac, Inc., for its QuickDraw System.

  This instant chemical-injection system is specifically designed to allow users in smaller facilities to take advantage of Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning® System.

  Using the systems multimode spray gun, users can apply cleaning agents to surfaces and then rinse those areas clean in a much more precise and targeted manner.

  Along with the spray gun, the patent applies to the systems ergonomically designed, lightweight “ hip pack” that contains the unit’s chemical pouch.

  “Some of the highlights of the QuickDraw System that helped it earn a patent are that it speeds up the cleaning process and reduces water usage by as much as 50 percent,” says Tom Morrison, Vice President of Marketing for Kaivac. “This allows the user to clean as many as 75 [restroom] fixtures on a single tank of water.”

  Kaivac has been awarded multiple patents for its products during the past 12 years. This is the company’s tenth patent, and it has 13 more patent applications awaiting approval.

  “We are very proud of our patented products,” says Morrison. “Obviously they are very innovative, which is why they have earned these patents. But that means nothing unless they help users clean faster, more thoroughly, and more hygienically. That really is our goal.”
