Al Biernat’s, an iconic Dallas destination steakhouse since 1998, has completed the installation of R-water’s disinfection technology.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott rolled out and rolled back restaurant reopening plans earlier this summer following a spike in cases. To continue to serve patrons, the restaurant offered to-go and delivery services during the quarantine, and even launched a “meat market,” allowing customers to order food and where they could then prepare it at home.

In July, the restaurant installed an air purification system, derived from NASA technology. Most recently, they implemented R-Water’s advanced technology which allows them to produce TK60, a hypoallergenic and food-surface safe healthcare-grade disinfectant. TK60  exceeds the EPA’s requirements to be on the N-List and national guidelines for restaurant sanitation, both in efficacy and contact time.

R-Water’s device is attached directly to the restaurant’s water supply to eliminate reliance on the supply chain. While disinfectants commonly used in restaurants include toxic ingredients and require a wet contact time of 10 minutes to work, TK60 destroys pathogens in just one minute and is safe for humans, food contact surfaces and the environment. 

R-Water’s device also produces FC+, an all-purpose cleaner and degreaser. Both solutions are free of toxins, color, and added fragrance; and eliminate the need for multiple disinfectants, sanitizers, deodorizers, degreasers, and surface-specific cleaners. TK60 also complies with FDA code for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required.

R-Water is committed to reducing the spread of preventable infectious diseases and unnecessary human and environmental exposure to chemicals and toxins. Further, R-Water’s technology allows facilities to produce cleaning and disinfecting solutions on-site and ready-to-use, eliminating the need for chemical transport, storage, mixing, and the disposal of toxic chemical containers into the environment.
