OZONE in Laundry


Ozone is a highly active energy source that replaces the use of heat, in that it accelerates the work of water and chemicals in the laundry process, as well as hastening the destruction of soil and micro-organisms.


Ozone forms hydroxil radicals which are 3000 times faster and 11 times stronger than chlorine with disinfection.



Why we use OZONE


Reduce laundry operating cost
Reduce water by up to 30%
Reduce energy use
Cold water washing - 40°C instead of 72°C
Reduce chemical cost by boosting it's performance
Dramatic saving on washing cycle times
Cleaner waste effluent
Kills pathogens - Approved by SABS (SANS 10146:2012)
Ozone reverts back to oxygen - no residue on linen
Reduces your Carbon Footprint

What are enzymes?


They are proteins produced by all living organisms that act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate or not at all. Perhaps a simple explanation "Catalysts are materials that help reactions move from a beginning to an end. Catalysts are not used up in the reaction so they are available to help multiple reactions."

Why are enzymes important?


The enzymes used in laundry detergents act on materials that make up a variety of stains and soils so that these materials can be washed away more easily. These enzymes are named after the materials they can act upon, for example, proteases break down protein based stains, lipolases break down lipid (fat) based stains and amylases break down starches and other carbohydrate based stains (amyl is Greek for starch). Since one enzyme molecule can act on many substrate (i.e., soil) molecules, a small amount of enzyme added to a laundry detergent can provide a big cleaning benefit to the consumer.
