Many people believe you need hot water, lots of detergent, and long wash times to properly clean your laundry. Once upon a time, that was true. However, there have been significant advances in laundry technology over the years – including the development of laundry ozone generator systems.
Ozone laundry systems provide wash cycles that are more efficient, gentle and effective. It’s also a more environmentally friendly choice. Ever wondered how high-end hotels have such bright, pristine linens and fluffy towels, even after serving thousands of guests everyday? The secret is ozone laundry systems. But how does an ozone laundry system work? We answer this question in the next section.
How Does an Ozone Laundry System Work?
Ozone laundry systems are a ground-breaking process that utilises a powerful oxidizing gas called ozone. Ozone (O³) contains three atoms of oxygen rather than two, making it extremely reactive. Ozone laundry systems create ozone by combining oxygen and electricity. The ozone is then dissolved in the washing water.
When the ozone water comes into contact with organic materials in your laundry, it destroys (or “oxidizes”) them. That includes bacteria, viruses, mould, or other microorganisms. Ozone also breaks up many inorganic materials, including soils and greases. This makes it easier for water to remove these contaminants from your laundry and wash them away.
Benefits of the Ozone Laundry System
Ozone laundry systems like the OTEK System by Ozone Technologies provides a quick return on investmentonce installed and delivers huge savings in operating costs while delivering pristine, clean laundry:
Reduces energy use by up to 90% by operating without hot water service
Delivers water savings of up to 40% with shorter wash cycles
Productivity savings of up to 30% with shorter wash cycles
Reduces dryer gas use by up to 40%
Reduces chemical costs as ozone boosts the power of detergents
As ozone laundry systems use cold water, the impact on fabrics is also limited, delivering savings in avoiding linen wear and damage over time.
Efficiency of the Ozone Laundry System
Ozone laundry systems deliver breakthrough speeds in laundry. This is because the powerful oxidising effect of ozone allows for shorter wash and dry cycles. Ozone laundry systems are also better for the environment as they require less water, less energy and less chemical and detergent use. This makes them incredibly useful across key industries like hospitality, healthcare and hotels, where efficiency and fast turnarounds are important while ensuring a high standard of cleanliness.
