Current hygiene demands – and how thermal disinfection is the solution

With COVID-19 at the forefront of everyone’s mind, we believe thermal disinfection plays a crucial role in meeting exemplary hygiene standards.

Current official laundry practice standards (AS/NZS 4146:2000 Australian New Zealand Laundry Standards) dictate that, in order for dirty linen to be properly disinfected, it must be ‘washed so that the temperature of the load is maintained at a minimum of 65°C for not less than 10 minutes, or at a minimum of 71°C for not less than 3 minutes.’

As leaders in our field, Richard Jay’s team of experts can recommend ways to achieve this, including the use of Electrolux’s efficient dosing system  – a smart function that provides information on whether or not each wash cycle achieved desired temperatures, and for how long. EDS gives validation reports, including temperature reached and held, to adhere to the official guidelines. Efficient dosing is a smart system that can also save your organisation up to 40% in chemical costs.

Across the entire range of Electrolux industrial washing machines, the efficient dosing system is a simple way of knowing if the required standards have been achieved. The validation report is easily downloadable to USB and viewable on any PC or Mac – providing crucial peace of mind at this challenging time.
