James Robinson patents automatic chemical dispensing for sanitation in commercial kitchens and founds Auto-Chlor System with regularly scheduled service routes.

In 1938, James D. Robinson conceived the idea of an Automatic Chlorination System. Simply put, equipment installed in customer accounts would automatically dispense a proper amount of chemical sanitizer into rinse water.

In 1939, James D. Robinson patented his Automatic Chlorination device and set out to revolutionize warewashing and sanitation methods. Shortly after the National Standards Foundation (NSF) was established in 1944, Auto-Chlor System became one of the organizations contributing members and remains active with the Joint Committee for Food Equipment to this day.

The most important component in our low-energy, high efficiencydishmachines is 80 plus years of innovative technology.

Many years, patents and satisfied customers later, Auto-Chlor System has become a national leader in the production and installation of Low Energy Dishmachines. We have expanded from dishwashing into Commercial Laundry, Housekeeping, Hard Surface Cleaning and Disinfecting.
