Applying ozone (O3) to the wash formula, the waste water stream and the pre-treatment system, can reduce operating hours, chemical, water and energy costs. In this three-part series we’ll be exploring ozone and its many characteristics.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE - and TREAT ;
These have been some of the major tenants of our environmental survival plan. When looked at closely, we can see that REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE (R3 ) when combined with the proper applications of ozone (O3 ), become a balanced formula in washroom procedures and practices. R3 = O3.
A Highly Successful Method To Reduce The Energy Cost For Small, Mid-Size And Large Laundry Operations
Next to personnel, the cost for energy (natural gas) is typically the second largest expense in most laundry operations. While the reduction of personnel costs has been successfully addressed through automation for many years, only the largest laundry operations have been able to take advantage of highly discounted natural gas rates offered by most utilities to customers with standby systems.
One successful tactic that many managers are employing in an effort to keep their laundry facilities running efficiently and competitively is to join voluntary conservation programs that offer suggestions on how to improve operations in key areas of utility usage. In this special conservation issue we’ll update you on three conservation programs available to our industry – LaundryESP, WAVE and DfE.
In response to energy shortages and the rising cost of electricity, laundry managers know how important it is to explore new products and technologies that can reduce day-to-day operating costs in their facilities. But while claims of 30, 40 or even 50 percent savings may grab your attention, it is important to know how to correctly evaluate energy saving products.
CAPE CANAVERAL, FL – In addition to exploration and discoveries in outer space, it was at John F. Kennedy Space Center's Parachute Refurbishment Facility (PRF) that ozone was first discovered as a revolutionary laundering agent. AJT Associates of Cape Canaveral, Florida, recognized the sanitizing abilities of the powerful oxidant while working with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on research for wastewater recycling at the facility in 1994.

Hamilton Engineering Awarded U.S. Patent For Companion Water Heater CWIS™ Design
LIVONIA, Mich. — Hamilton Engineering was recently awarded a U.S. Patent for their Cold Water Injection System (CWIS™) contained within their Companion™ Water Heater and optional on all of their hot water storage tanks. The CWIS™ insures the highest efficiency possible in the water heating system by ensuring all of the coldest water enters the heater first, while eliminating any flow restriction or pressure drop on the hot water being supplied to the laundry so common with other instantaneous or on demand water heaters.
