The average hospitality laundry processes nearly 50,000 pounds of linens and uniforms every day and produces nearly 30,000,000 gallons of wastewater every year. Laundries will see costs of $150,000 to over $500,000, and depending on region, those prices are escalating at rates of 5-15% per year. As water shortages become more common around the world, the laundry industry is under increasing pressure to reduce consumption and minimize its environmental impact.
Water recycling is the process of treating wastewater to a high quality in order to reuse back into processes. Advances in wastewater recycling technologies continue to prove beneficial in the reduction of water usage, fuel avoidance, and lessening the impact of wastewater to the environment. With recycle rates up to 90%, water recycling not only impacts the environment, it impacts your bottom line. Operating costs are significantly lowered, while plant efficiencies grow, providing substantial savings to your plant.
Water Recycling as a Service
One emerging innovation in water recycling is CONSERVE, an all-inclusive service designed to conserve water, conserve costs, and conserve capital. CONSERVE builds a unique savings profile based on the real-life operating data of your specific plant. Required equipment to achieve and guarantee the identified savings, is installed by a turnkey installation crew, and produces quality and savings from day one. The CONSERVE partnership continues with an all-inclusive parts, service, and maintenance program that will deliver peace-of-mind and substantial savings to your laundry for years to come.
CONSERVE uses a patent-pending innovation that takes advantage of the robust ceramic microfiltration (CMF) to remove total suspended solids (TSS) and oils & greases, then takes it to the next level with a specially designed reverse osmosis (RO) to remove total dissolved solids (TDS), such as salts, organics, and other contaminants. This combination achieves low TDS, low biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and produces water of the highest quality, with the highest recycle rates in the industry.
Quality water equals quality product. Removal of color carryover keeps your product at its brightest, while eliminating bacteria and viruses keeps your product hygienically clean.
