Procedures

In laundries, the demand on hygiene, quality, safety and cost reduction is steadily increasing. Jointly with you, we develop a concept that ensures optimal performance and safety for your laundry. The products and procedures used are perfectly customized for your company and your needs – the efficient and safe way. This ensures savings in product, water and energy consumption.

ECOSAN 3.0 procedure

Efficient management of the resources water, heat and energy are of vital importance for the competitiveness and sustainability of laundries that often try to reduce the consumption of water and energy.

This usually results in inadequate stain removal and lower degree of whiteness due to low washing temperatures, grey and discoloured laundry due to lack of rinsing and increased use of chemicals to compensate the low washing temperatures.

By developing the third generation of the ECOSAN procedure, we have made a significant step towards a sensible water and energy saving concept. The ECOSAN 3.0 procedure is a safe, ecological and economic washing procedure for washing lines.

ECOSAN 3.0 is the first procedure that uses water and detergent from the main washing and rinsing cycle for prewashing. The heart of the new ECOSAN 3.0 is our AQUAHEAT PURIFIER. With this innovative combination of filter, heat recovery and adsorber, it is now possible for the first time to process the oxygenic water that is heavily contaminated with suspended matters and fluffs.

The result: 15-20% lower detergent consumption and a water demand of merely 3 l/kg. This procedure also ensures the optimal rinsing out of fluffs and hair due to a water consumption of 6 l/kg in the rinsing zone.

ENERGY procedure

The DERVAL ENERGY procedure is our response to heavily soiled work clothing, increasing energy prices and increasing operating costs in laundries – because time is money! In commercial laundries, the time factor decides on the cleanliness of the textiles, the company’s capacity and the costs for the care of the textiles. Therefore, quick washing cycles at optimal cleaning quality is not only an economic factor for a laundry but particularly an advantage in competition. 

The DERVAL ENERGY procedure combines cost minimization with care quality and laundry durability. The washing process is effective and efficient even in the temperature range between 40 and 60 °C. Visible cleanliness and conservation of the protective functions of the textiles are ensured at all times, and a complete washing bath can be omitted.

Extensive practical testing with thewash-power booster DERVAL ENERGY has shown that pre-washing is no longer required, even for heavily soiled work clothing! This has decidedly positive effects for the balance of a washing procedure!

Savings of energy (50 %), water (30 %) and time (20 %) as well as full machine workload due to elimination of cool-down (for mixed fibres) are advantages that confirm the effectiveness and efficiency of the ENERGY procedure.

Disinfecting procedures

In the event of an officially decreed epidemic case, laundry disinfection is mandatory and required by law in accordance with §18 of the German Infection Protection Act (IfSG) A (bacteria) and B (viruses). In this case, the laundry must be treated with a disinfecant and using a disinfection procedure that have been tested and approved by the Robert Koch Institute.

Otherwise, leased laundry as well as laundry from hospitals, retirement homes and nursing homes is suspected to be infected. This type of laundry is usually washed according to the procedures listed by the VAH or RKI. In this case, the compliance with these listing specifications serves exclusively the purpose of prophylaxis; there are no legally founded regulations.

For the sale in foreign European countries, the detergents or disinfecting washing procedures must meet European standards: DIN EN 1276 (bactericide), DIN EN 1275 (fungicide) and DIN EN 14476 (virucide).

We offer you products and procedures that are listed by the RKI and VAH as well as comply with the European DIN standards. Due to the very low dosing quantities and short reaction times, our disinfection procedures are particularly tissue-conserving and economical.

LANADOL ABAC procedure

Wet cleaning with LANADOL allows the gentle and still effective disinfection of sensitive textiles even at 30 °C. LANADOL ABAC complies with the requirements of RAL 992/4 for resident laundry and disinfects textiles in the rinsing process according to the EN standards 1275 (yeast, fungi), 1276 (bacteria) and 14476 (rotavirus/vaccine virus) within 5 minutes without using peracid bleach that damages fibers and colours.

LANADOL ABAC is also suited for the disinfection of protective clothing and respirator masks and can also be used as rinsing zone disinfectant in washing lines. LANADOL ABAC is hard water-resistant and provides textiles with antistatic properties and a slight finishing effect.

ESDOGEN procedure

Common chemothermal disinfection is performed as from 60°C. The disinfection of wool, silk, applications or other sensitive textiles would damage the sensitive fibers at 60 °C and make them unattractive. The VAH-listed ESDOGEN disinfection procedure is the perfect solution for such sensitive textiles and prevents damage to the fibers while saving energy and water costs as well as protecting the environment.
