Ecolab highlights the results of two important solutions - Food Hygiene & Laundry - with case studies.
An international retail company with in-house restaurants invited Ecolab to be the new hygiene partner for all of its in-store restaurants operating in more than 300 locations around the globe. The customer wanted consistently clean serving dishes with greatly improved operational efficiency.
Additional goals included maintaining the international brand’s high level of staff safety and reaching longterm sustainability goals to reduce waste, water and energy within the company’s food operations.
Together with Ecolab’s unique solution, the SmartPower™ warewashing program, the global chain is minimizing the total cost of operations in the company’s dish-wash area.
Dissatisfaction with its current housekeeping service provider compelled a leading U.S. hotel company, Kinseth Hospitality, to ask Ecolab to assess the property’s cleaning operations. A site survey revealed that the laundry service was running a significant number of rewash loads at high water temperatures, wearing down the durability of its linens and driving up energy usage. Additionally, the hotel’s liquid laundry detergent came in large five-gallon buckets, creating safety concerns for employees from product pile-up, potential spills and cramped storage.
Ecolab recommended the Aquanomic™ Low-Temp Laundry Solids Program. The innovative chemistry cleans thoroughly in shorter wash cycles using water at 100° compared to 120° F and higher. Lower water temperatures save energy and extend the life of linens. “Employees also appreciate the small, lighter packaging of our solid detergents,” said Jeffrey Sackett, assistant vice president of corporate accounts, Ecolab. “The Aquanomic detergents come in concentrated solids that alleviate safety and storage concerns.”
Ecolab conducted a two-month trial for Kinseth Hospitality. After annualizing potential savings for70 properties, Aquanomic proved to be a superior solution for the company’s laundry operations.
