Original Abstract

A new computational tool which enables to analyze flows of energy through the professional laundry care process from utilities to every single consumer was developed and is introduced in the paper. The tool combines theoretical balance modelling with experimental data from real premises. The tool is presented through a case study involving a steam heated industrial laundry with capacity of 1.5 t of linen/h first with outdated energy system second with up-to-date energy system and apparatuses. The case study shows how it is possible to conclude the impact of each process parameter to the total energy demand.
