Traditional Laundering involves many chemicals, hot water, and high sewage costs. In addition, wash cycles use hot water for thermal disinfection and chemical activation. The wash water, for example, needs to be heated between 135 and 160 degrees F to activate the chemistry. Furthermore, laundry water contains a high concentration of detergents and surfactants, many of which are slow to degrade and require downstream water treatment plants to reduce their content. For these reasons, using Ozone for commercial laundries system saves your money by reducing energy consumption, conserving water, reducing detergent and chemical use, and extending the life of the clothes.
THE BENEFIT OF OZONE FOR COMMERCIAL LAUNDRIES
- Ozone reduces the use of chemicals in the water.
- Water and sewage cost reductions
- There is no need to increase the water temperatures.
- Ozone is capable of destroying bacterial and viral colonies and is also effective against molds and fungi
- Odors can be controlled with ozone. Also, Improve lined quality
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY UNRELIABLE OZONE SCRUBBING SYSTEMS INSTALLED?
Hotel owners and laundry managers have better things to do than to start studying ozone technology. So, how could they distinguish between an effective ozone system and a complete waste of money system?
Unfortunately, poorly designed ozone systems do not provide any benefit to laundry owners. To be sure your ozone system is effective, just confirm if your water ozone concentration reaches 2 ppm (for hotel linen) and 4-5 ppm (for dirty machine shops or hospital uniforms).
Why would it be an intelligent thing to do? Because over 90% of installed ozone for commercial laundries systems operate at lower than recommended concentrations and as you will learn in this article, a system operating at lower ozone concentrations is just a waste of money.
Several years ago, Technology magazine published an article on the subject that provides additional information:
