Hydro Systems, an independent manufacturer of proportioning and dispensing systems, introduced EvoClean, a venturi-based, water-powered laundry dispenser for on-premise laundry (OPL) applications with three to eight chemical products.
“The EvoClean is revolutionary because unlike other laundry dispensers, it does not require squeeze tubes. This drives dramatic reductions in service parts and maintenance costs,” said John Goetz, global product manager, Hydro Systems. “Once the unit is calibrated, its delivery performance is precise and it will not drift or under-dose chemicals due to squeeze tube wear. This gives laundries less downtime and the predictably clean results they expect with every wash.”
According to the Alliance for Water Efficiency, water represents more than half of a laundry’s total operating costs. To reduce water and energy consumption, the EvoClean employs an eductor that restricts water flow to 0.5 GPM or 1.0 GPM (nominally) and forgoes the use of AC and DC motors, which require more power to operate. The EvoClean is 50 percent lighter than other traditional peristaltic pumps and takes up less space within a laundry facility, leading to simplified installation and maintenance.
The system is available in four, six and eight product configurations for two flow rates and is compatible with Hydro Systems’ Total Eclipse Controller. The Total Eclipse Controller features a 20-formula capacity and Auto Formula Select, along with a large LCD that displays formula names, dispenser status and various diagnostic reports. Users can access reports on product usage, costs per formula, system settings and more through the controller.
