Ozone Technologies is the proud manufacturer of the innovative OTEK laundry system in Australia. We are proud to make the environmental and economic benefits of ozone laundry available and affordable for all on-premises and commercial laundry operations, from healthcare to hotels, aged care to education, and so much more.
Excellent Return on Investment With Ozone Laundry
OTEK units pay for themselves with impressive cost savings and a quick return on investment from reduced utility costs. With the OTEK rental plan, the system does not require capital outlay, as the rental cost is a fraction of the savings made, providing an immediate profit on the monthly investment.
Economic Benefits of Ozone Laundry Tech Solutions
If you want a fast return on investment and an effective way to reduce energy use, OTEK laundry systems make a big difference. Here are the ozone laundry benefits resulting in cost savings.
Reduce Water Use by up to 40%
A traditional wash programme has 5 steps. Usually made up a high-level flush, low level wash followed by three high level rinses.
The water saving is achieved by the elimination of certain steps in each wash program. When commissioning the OTEK system our technicians will reprogram the washing machine. In the example of the traditional wash program the high-level flush and one high level rinse are removed resulting in up 40% water savings.
Reduce Energy Use by up to 90%
A traditional wash programme usually has a 65 degree detergent/bleach bath and the first rinse is split between hot and cold to reduce thermal shock to the linen.
When commissioning the OTEK system our technicians will reprogram the washing machine. Temperature is removed from the majority of wash programs so the washing machine does not fill with water from the hot water service and the washing machine heating elements do not come on resulting in cold water washing. Cold water washing produces significant saving in electricity and gas consumption.
Reduce Dryer Gas Use by up to 40%
Ozone penetrates deep linen fibres to prevent residue build-up. With the removal of chemical softener and lower water retention, it takes less time to dry the linen. Not only does this leave the fibres naturally soft and fluffy, but the average dry cycle of 45-55 minutes can be reduced to 25-35 minutes.
Productivity Savings of Up To 30%
A shorter wash cycle means less time devoted to laundry, resulting in reduced labour costs and increased productivity. An ozone laundry system also eliminates employee complaints of skin rashes, cracking, dryness, and sensitivity caused by harsh soaps, chlorine bleaches, and cleaning agents.
Reduce Chemical Use & Associated Costs
OTEK laundering eliminates the need for high levels of chemicals currently used in conventional laundering systems. Ozone boosts the power of detergents, so your laundry detergent goes a lot further. The use of ozone naturally softens the linen, which means that softener can be removed altogether along with large reductions in alkali and sour.
Reduce Laundry Machine Maintenance & Water Board Charges
Reduced machine operating hours and fewer cycles mean less maintenance and servicing hours. The removal of heat minimises service and replacement of heating elements, too. You also get a 20 to 40% decrease in water and sewer costs, with reduced chemicals and higher oxygen levels for cleaner wastewater.
Minimise Linen Loss
OTEK increases linen life with up to 40% shorter wash cycles and 20% shorter dry cycles. Cold water avoids fabric shrinkage, aging, and deterioration caused by thermal washing at hot temperatures. Also, the OTEK system has been independently tested by the Australian Wool Testing Authority, which confirmed linen could last up to four times as long with this washing technique.
Sample Cost Savings of Ozone Laundry Tech Solutions
OTEK laundry systems from Ozone Technologies are a great way to reduce chemical use and lower utility bills at the same time. The below table outlines an example of cost savings with an OTEK laundry machine installed.
Utilities Per Wash Load (Example 23kg Washing Machine)
Conventional 5-Step Thermal Wash
OTEK Sustainable 3-Step Process
As you can see, you can save around $4.00 per load of laundry and reduce chemical use, thanks to ozone laundry tech solutions.
