When you run a laundry, you’re probably aware of the risks of dosing. Transferring chemicals from IBC tanks to storage tanks can be hazardous. When things go wrong, employees’ health and environment can be affected negatively. Therefore, the transfer should to be carried out carefully. Recently we installed Smart Filling and Smart Dosing at a laundry in the Dutch Caribbean. Here’s what that looked liked.
Safer and Greener Filling of Storage Tanks & Dosing of Washer Extractors
Our client chose for Smart Filling
to transfer detergents from IBC tanks to their storage tanks. Smart Filling features a safe 4 step QR scan process (see below).
And the dosing of washer extractors happens with Smart Dosing.
Vartex Smart Dosing installation is an all-in-one central dosing system for automatic dosing of liquid chemicals to washer extractors. The powerful PLC makes it possible to dose up to 12 chemicals and up to 15 washing machines. With Smart Dosing’s user-friendly OS, dosing detergents becomes easier and greener.
With Smart Dosing and Smart Filling, data is stored in the cloud so users can track their detergent use in the Laundry Intelligence Dashboard. You can determine the level at which new detergents are ordered. The system notifies your chemical supplier and a new order is placed automatically. This way, the chance of running out of detergents is decreased. That’s smart.
Safety Through Simplicity
Safety should be something that can be realized through simplicity. Luckily, with technology that mission becomes easier to achieve. Smart Dosing is Vartex’ compact, all-in-one central dosing system for automatic dosing of liquid chemicals to washer extractors. The powerful PLC makes it possible to dose up to 12 chemicals and up to 15 washing machines. And the safer way to transfer chemicals from IBC tanks to your storage tanks is through Smart Filling. Smart Filling works according to a 4-Step Scan Procedure.
Simply put, four different QR codes must be scanned before the chemicals can be transferred. It works like this:
In this modern day and age, these QR codes can be displayed and scanned on your smart phone. All you need is a QR scanner, which is delivered with Smart Filling. Smart Dosing and Smart Filling are engineered for a green and safe dosing experience. However, both systems are available separately; you can use the one with or without the other.
