Ozone in laundry
To get the most out of
Use of ozone in industrial laundry
Industrial laundry is a growing business model in today's society, due to the type of life we lead. Its main operating costs are energy consumption, consumption of hot and cold water, detergents and products. In addition, they are generally forced to pay a discharge fee for the amount and type of discharge generated, generally in urban areas. Searching for sustainable alternatives that allow the entrepreneur to make their business more profitable, reducing the environmental impact and the costs derived from it, has become a priority in recent years.
Ozone is a powerful oxidant, which when diluted in the wash water, generates significant benefits for the employer and the environment. Ozone enhances the action of detergents, and therefore reduces their consumption, but also reduces washing times and the number of rinses, reducing water consumption and the amount of waste per kg of laundry. In many cases, it also allows for the complete elimination of hot water, considerably reducing energy consumption. In the end, all these advantages allow the businessperson to save money for each kg of laundry, to be able to wash more kg per day, reduce the amount of waste and reduce the pollution level of the waste for each kg of laundry washed, managing to optimize the process, making its more profitable and sustainable laundry.

Why use ozone in your industrial laundry?
Advantages of using ozone in your industrial laundry
Save on detergents
Ozone is a powerful oxidant, and by dissolving it in water, it enhances the action of your laundry detergents. That is, you will need less detergent to achieve the same or better results. Depending on the type of garment to be washed, you can even reach a total reduction of the detergent.
Save water and energy
The oxidation potential of ozone allows you to reduce washing times, the number of rinses, and the use of hot water in your laundry. This causes that for each kilo of clothes to be washed, you will consume less water and less energy.
Reduce washing times
If you use ozone in your washing machine, you will be able to reduce washing times and the number of rinses thanks to the powerful oxidation action of ozone, which will allow you to carry out more washes per day, and increase the performance of your industrial laundry.
Whiter and softer
Ozone is a powerful bleach, thanks to its powerful oxidizing capacity, which allows for whiter garments with less detergent. On the other hand, ozone provides a peculiar softness to garments and prevents the crystallization of detergents, which do so much damage in nursing homes and people with sensitive skin.
If you save detergents, water, time and energy for each kilo of laundry, you are reducing your operating costs, and if you also manage to do more washes per day, you will ultimately achieve a considerable increase in the profitability of your business.
By installing an ozone system in your laundry, you will considerably reduce the discharge of chemicals into the sewage system, and you will reduce water and energy consumption, reducing the environmental impact of your laundry and protecting the environment.
What type of ozone generator do I need?
Below we show you the ranges available to inject ozone in your laundry.
1. What is the difference between the ranges?
The 4 ranges include the ozone generator, with compressor and the oxygen concentrator. The first difference is the HIDRO VT ranges, it is used to inject ozone directly into the water pipe, that is, directly into the flow that supplies water to the washing machines. To achieve this, they include a pump and a venturi to inject the ozone gas into the pipe and a contact tower to homogenize the mixture. The HIDRO V ranges, on the other hand, are used to inject ozone into a buffer water tank through recirculation with a pump and venturi.
The second difference is in the type of control. The -EPS have an automatic power control controlled by a PLC and allow washing always with the same amount of ozone dissolved in the water. The -ES on the other hand, have a manual power control and introduce a fixed and constant amount of ozone, which can cause some washes to go with more or less ozone than others depending on the water demands.
2. What range do you recommend?
It depends on how you have your hydraulic system. If you have a buffer tank from which you supply water to the washing machines, use a HIDRO V. If you do not have a buffer tank, install a HIDRO VT on the main line that supplies water to all the washing machines.
Regarding the control, obviously an -EPS is better, which will allow you an automatic control, however if you want to save some money, you can use the -ES and assume that some washes will go with more ozone than others.
3. How much ozone do I need?
If it is a HIDRO V, for recirculation in the buffer tank you will have to apply 1ppm for each cubic meter of incoming water. In other words, if you fill at 20m3/h, you will have to have at least a 20gO3/h unit. If it is a HIDRO VT, you must calculate 1 ppm for the maximum flow of the pipe. If your maximum flow rate is 20m3/h, you will need a 20gO3/h ozone generator.
