Original Abstract

In comparison with washing at home the professional laundry care process in commercial laundry premises presents an environment-friendly alternative. Experience from up-to-date premises with capacity up to 5000 tons of linen p. a. shows that only from 5 to 6 litres of water are necessary for each kilogram of linen. In case of washing at home the water requirement exceeds 20 l/kg. The same tendency can be observed in energy consumption as well as dosing rate of detergents. A way to drive down operational costs is the whole process optimization and integration of various pieces of equipment such as heat exchangers for effluent water waste heat utilization. However, the basic condition for good results is that the solution has to be hand-tailored for the specific premises.
