The commercial laundry equipment industry serves the hotel, school, hospital, restaurant, laundromat, corrections, athletic, car wash, cruise ship, senior care and manufacturing markets with washing, drying and pressing systems. From clothes to uniforms and linens to towels, America’s commercial launderers process textiles for reuse. During which, they consume 12M gallons of chemicals per year including liquid detergents, bleach, softeners, degreasers, conditioners and starch. Bulk chemicals are delivered in pails, drums, IBC totes and even tankers to high volume launderers. Chemical inventory monitoring and dispensing systems, like those manufactured by Knight Equipment, are critical to laundry efficiency, quality and cost. At this North Carolina hospital, an EchoPod ultrasonic level transmitter is installed in each IBC tank filled with laundry chemicals. The non-contact sensor replaced a multi-point float switch that needed ongoing maintenance due to the sticky nature of their detergents. Additionally, with continuous measurement, the hospital now maintains real-time inventory control and proactively manages their chemical supply chain.
