WYPALL* X Wipers: Selecting the right wiper and dispensing system for your cleaning task

There’s no doubt a cleaner workplace is a safer, healthier and more productive workplace. From industrial environments and manufacturing floors to healthcare and food production, different workplaces have unique requirements from light duty, delicate or hygienic cleaning to tough maintenance tasks.

A key objective of these cleaning and wiping tasks in any work environment is to ensure product quality and machine performance without compromising productivity or efficiency while facilitating safe and healthy working conditions for the staff.

Kimberly-Clark Professional* has been partnering with businesses to create Exceptional Workplaces* where safety, health, productivity and efficiency remain the primary focus. Kimberly-Clark’s broad range of wipers covers every cleaning task in diverse work environments and includes WYPALL* X re-usable wipers that combine cleaning efficiency and super absorbency with economy and reduced wastage.

The HACCP-certified WYPALL* X wipers range includes WYPALL* X50 light duty cloth wipers, WYPALL* X60 multipurpose cloth wipers, WYPALL* X70 regular duty cloth wipers and WYPALL* X80 heavy duty cloth wipers.

However, given the different types of cleaning requirements in various workplaces, Kimberly-Clark’s Wiper Selection Guide recommends three factors to be considered when choosing the most appropriate wiper product from the WYPALL* X range: Wiper Performance, Dispensing System and Operating Efficiency.

For instance, wiper performance in any particular cleaning task will depend on characteristics such as absorbency, strength and tear resistance, solvent resistance, low lint quality, and colour options for task segregation. Selection of a suitable wiper dispensing system will hinge on the cleaning application and environment with factors such as capacity, portability, sanitary constraints and sheet size coming into play. Dynamics influencing operating efficiency may include reusability, balancing wiping performance with environmental impact, waste reduction, and hazardous substances clean-up.
