PORTLAND, Ore. — Owners, managers and purchasing agents who do business with hospitals, hotels, health clubs and spas are recognizing the necessity of sanitizing laundry germs, viruses, fungi, bacteria and other dangerous bio-hazards.
A cart washer is a long term investment. To be absolutely certain that your purchase is the right investment choice, the choice you’ll be proud of for the next 15 to 20 years, you need a cart washer with a proven track record. Saniwash was developed and refined over 35 years in response to hospital-acquired infection.
- Governmental agencies placed Saniwash systems in their laundries.
- Hospital laundries, and large commercial laundries that contracted with hospitals followed.
- Saniwash systems continue to be purchased and placed in laundries that sanitize critical linens.
Saniwash uses 2 moving washer booms to ensure the scrubbing action is thorough inside as well as outside the cart. A high pressure washing system with a rotating nozzle pattern is standard. It uses an advanced, earth-friendly quat-based biocidal so germs, viruses and fungi are exterminated. Saniwash can be installed as part of a barrier wall to eliminate cross-contamination from soiled carts and contents. It sanitizes up to 26 carts per hour with loading and unloading, saving valuable time and can be operated by one person to keep labor costs low.
McClure Industries offers an Ultra Violet Light Kit that is available for the Saniwash Cart Washer. Each kit consists of (4) 60″ lamps, (1) in each corner of the machine and (1) 48” lamp on the ceiling. Lamps are high-output (800mA), T5 diameter, and constructed from hard glass tubing for superior UV transmittance. Stainless steel shields are also installed behind each lamp to intensify the UV light many times its normal output.
The lamps are “green” containing < 8mg of mercury and they produce no ozone. Lamps shall retain, at a minimum, 80% of initial output for 2 years (17,000 hours) of use. Each lamp is sealed in a water-tight quartz sleeve for moisture protection. The high-output UVC energy will eliminate most surface contaminants (mold, bacteria and other microbial biofilms) and reduce infectious airborne microbial contaminants within the cabinet.
