How to Properly Clean Gilbarco Dispensers

Gilbarco Encore 700

Every so often we get asked, “what’s the proper way to clean a dispenser?”  Like anything exposed to the elements, it is going to get dirty and using the improper cleaning techniques or cleaning agents could lead to further damage.    Just like washing your car will extend the luster and life of your vehicle, so will periodically cleaning your dispensers!

Technicians are not responsible to clean dispensers on service calls as this is typically a task that is performed by the station owner/manager.  But it is important that a technician recognize when improper cleaning agents and procedures being implemented by the station show the signs of chemical attack or damage so they can then inform the customer that their methods are doing more harm than good..

 

Gilbarco has put together a document, Proper Cleaning of Dispensers that you can view and download here.

View the full maintenance instructions from MDE-3893 Encore and Eclipse Owner’s Manual here.
