Ozone is used for commercial laundry systems in hotels, jails, nursing homes, and hospitals as an energy and cost savings alternative. These same advantages can be brought to your dairy laundry systems.
Ozone use replaces hot water for laundry and reduces chemicals. This will conserve energy and save costs for your dairy.
Diaries may have large quantities of laundry to complete each day. Dairies may use towels or rags to wipe teats prior to milking, these towels are washed between each milking. Ozone will disinfect these towels better than any detergent or hot water. This will reduce bacteria, and reduce the chance of cross-contamination between cows during milking.
How it works
Ozone is dissolved into water that is used in the laundry process. Cold water with ozone is used as opposed to hot water. Ozone is also added into the machine in the gasseous form to be dissolved into water during laundering process.
Detergents are still used at lower levels, and hot water use is eliminated. Only cold water is used in the laundry process.
In some applications, as there is less detergent used a rinse step in the cycle can be eliminated and less water use can be achieved.
Benefit of Ozone
Hot water usage is eliminated, saving energy and saving costs.
Disinfection of towels and laundered materials is achieved, reducing cross-contamination of illness and disease on your dairy.
Towels and laundered linens will have longer life span with lower detergent use and lack of hot water.
