Ozone laundering delivers many different types of savings - from decreased annual costs to tangible benefits for the environment
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Research by ClearWater Tech, LLC, a leading designer and manufacturer of air and water purification technology, reveals that ozone laundering can reduce commercial laundry costs by nearly 40 percent. A recent case study of the EcoTex™ ozone laundry system compared costs to traditional laundering systems.
"Ozone laundering delivers many different types of savings - from decreased annual costs to tangible benefits for the environment," said Cameron Tapp, president of ClearWater Tech. "Our ozone-laundering equipment increases a facility's energy and labor efficiencies and provides a higher level of cleanliness and disinfection while lowering costs."
The EcoTex™ Advanced Laundry Oxidation System uses the power of ozone and oxygen to enhance cleanliness and save money in commercial laundering. The research was conducted at Apple Farm Inn and Suites, a 104-room hotel located in San Luis Obispo, Calif., from late 2006 into 2007. The laundry facility at Apple Farm Inn consists of two 80-pound commercial washers.
Apple Farm Inn experienced savings of 38 percent in operational costs related to its laundry facility, which encompass water, chemical, electrical, natural gas and labor costs. The ozone system used 18 percent less water and shortened each cycle by 11 minutes. Additionally, 27 percent less hot water was used per cycle. With a shorter wash cycle, less detergent used and faster drying time, sheets and towels are softer and cleaner after laundering and have a longer life.
"With the cost savings Apple Farm Inn experienced, the ozone laundering system at paid for itself in less than eight months," said Tapp. The savings extend beyond the four walls of the hotel laundry room - using less water, electricity, chemicals and natural gas also benefits the environment. Furthermore, ozone laundering positively impacts the work atmosphere, producing a cooler and better-smelling laundry facility as well as lower potential for mold and mildew growth in and around the washers.
