Scale in washing machine and dish washer due to hard water
Company: Divani Hotel Group, Greece
The Divani Hotel Group has both, business hotels in the cities, and hotels for tourism at the various costlines of Greee. In this actual case there is their own laundry, which caused problems. In the washing machines limescale gathered in the washing drum. Our customer was forced to clean them chemically and mechanically twice a month. Limescale was detected on the inner walls of the dishwashers. The maintenance man carried out a chemical cleaning every month.
Two Merus rings were installed around the main cold- and hot-water pipe of the dish washers and around the corresponding feed lines of the washing machines.
How our customer checked up on the results
The dishwashers do not need any extra chemical cleaning anymore at all, because no new limescale develops on the inner walls.
The limescale crusts in the washing machines started to soften. At the same time the deposition of new limescale stopped. The washing machines never had to be cleaned chemically again.
After having made the first positive experiences it was decided that no more fabric softener should be used and still the laundry came out of the washing machines as soft as before.
Furthermore it was observed that new towels which didn't use to become soft right after the first wash, become soft immediately now and can be used instantly instead of having to be washed at least twice before being utilized.
