Would you like to save Water, Electricity and Chemical costs for your Laundry?


Published : Wednesday, April 28, 2021

With the cost of water increasing and the Eskom tariffs continuing to rise, businesses are either looking at alternative methods of energy, or how to reduce their current monthly consumption. In the laundry industry, you can counteract these price hikes, by purchasing equipment that has been proven to be the most resource efficient equipment on the market. 


Water Savings:


Electrolux industrial washing machines can lower your water consumption by up to 40%. 


Electrolux washers, feature a built-in Automatic Water Saving (AWS) technology which determines the exact weight of the load and adds the precise amount of water for best results. This significantly reduces water consumption and energy costs. Other brands fill up the washer to the same water level for each cycle, no matter how much laundry is in the machine. In our experience, washers are loaded at 60-70% of the machines capacity which wastes a tremendous amount of water and money. AWS solves that problem. It’s an incredible software feature available only on Electrolux industrial washing machines.

The Electrolux Washers also feature the Compass Pro microprocessor, which enables MEGA’s technical team to easily adjust parameters such as water levels, temperature, and drum action to lower your resource use and costs. They also have a high speed extraction range. If you would like to make your laundry operation faster to process more volume, save time for your employees and customers and save electricity in your Dryer, Electrolux offers Washers with 450G extraction. The 450G Washers high water extraction ensures that your clothes or linen have less residual moisture when taken from the Washer, therefore saving drying time and electricity.


Dryer Savings:


Electrolux Dryers can help your business benefit from the energy saving features. Not only is our line of industrial laundry equipment environmentally sustainable, but your business will immediately notice utility cost savings, making these machines a great long-term investment.


How do our Dryers save you money?


  • Axial Airflow – Electrolux Dryers benefit from an advanced technology that consistently reduces drying times and increases savings on energy. With axial airflow, instead of the standard radial airflow, this superior airtight design uses heat more efficiently, by entering the drum from the back, rather than skirting around the drum from the top, which dissipates the warm air.    
  • Residual Moisture Control (RMC) - The RMC drying feature measures the moisture level of a load of laundry throughout the drying cycle, automatically stopping the dryer when the optimal “dry” level is reached. This helps to prolong the life of linens and clothes by eliminating over-drying, as well as providing savings in electricity costs. Electrolux RMC settings can be customised per cycle.
  • Reversing Drum - Drums that reverse periodically throughout the drying cycle help to prevent tangling/balling, helping clothes/linen to dry quicker, with lower energy consumption and less wear-and-tear. This feature saves 7-10 minutes per cycle.


Chemical Savings:


Electrolux offers a product called Efficient Dosing System (EDS). EDS adjusts detergent according to the weight of the load in the Washer, which improves wash results and reduces detergent costs. With the EDS your laundry solution will be more cost efficient than ever. EDS allows the washer and the detergent dispensers to communicate effectively and calculate the precise amount of detergent based on the load weight and selected wash program. The system also gives you access to statistics to help you control costs, via the USB connection.
