The use of ozone is useful for disinfecting in very varied cases. As we mentioned some days ago, the laundry is an essential need for any cleaning department, both in large companies and in public institutions, but in the clinics and hospitals the laundry plays even a more important role.
Its proper use not only contributes to comfort and aesthetics, but also helps to control infections. Normally, it requires a high consumption of water and electricity, so by using an alternative system, it also impacts positively the environmental and financial results of hospitals.
Laundries in clinics and hospitals
The powerful disinfection capacity through the use of ozone has made it an ideal option to purify water from swimming pools and tanks. Something essential in the laundries of hospitals. More and more institutional laundries are adapting ozone treatment as a complement to conventional chemicals and methods.
Ozone washing systems work by injecting ozone into the wash water. The O3 molecule decomposes rapidly oxidizing the fatty oils that cause dirt to adhere to the cloth, disinfecting the water and the sheets as the washing process progresses. And since it does not leave chemical residues on the fabrics, it requires less rinsing than other bleaching agents.
The ozone technology promises better deodorization, shorter laundry cycles and improved sanitation, all with the use of water at a lower temperature, which saves energy and costs. As an oxidant, ozone is stronger than chlorine and has been shown to be a highly effective disinfectant, even if used in sterilization systems. In addition, ozone generators can be installed as a complement to conventional systems, allowing older laundries to adapt their facilities without having to replace expensive machines.
The consumption of water can be significantly reduced (between 15% and 25%) if the use of ozone technologies is adopted, while the energy expenditure is reduced, since the need to use hot water will be much lower. Washing at lower temperatures can help to extend the useful life of the sheets washed frequently and, moreover, it is something that users and patients value, since the sheets are more spongy and soft than those bleached with chlorine.
At GreenBiozone we have ozone generators for all applications. Depending on the needs, we will propose the installation that best suits each case.
