But what can you expect to save by installing energy conservation systems? For each of the products listed below, you'll find the percentage of total energy conservation.
Tunnel washers began production in the mid 1970's. Initially, they were designed as a tube where the linen was fed in a rope-like fashion. Linen passed through several treatment baths accomplishing the wash process. Water was fed in a counter flow arrangement to the linen and chemicals were added through a hollow tube with a cup on the dip end.
NEWARK, Del. -- Faced with a five-year state-wide drought as well as sky-rocketing utility costs, the University of Delaware has taken a proactive stance in energy conservation.
With 55 new retrofitted laundry rooms, the University is spearheading a conservation effort which puts them in a position to save 3.5 million gallons of water per year and 769,000 kilowatts of electricity per year - enough energy to light every household in Newark for three weeks.
