Smartwasher Installed Into Local Councils Waste Disposal Department.
19 November 2018
Rozone have recently installed Smartwasher parts cleaning machines into all depots of a local Council’s waste disposal department. The reason for choosing Rozone`s parts washer is it`s health & safety benefits over solvent cleaning.
The Smartwasher uses an aqueous based, non-hazardous degreasing solution which is heated to 40°c in the Smartwasher machine. This is the optimum temperature for oil-eating microbes introduced to the system through a filter mat, to work at digesting all the oil and grease washed off dirty parts, effectively recycling the solution. This clever cleaning technology called bioremediation eliminates the requirement of a costly service contract by reducing waste fluid generation bringing cost savings as well as environmental benefits.
With fewer risk assessments to complete and assisting compliance with ISO14001, the Smartwashers health and safety benefits were the real deal breaker. Workshop Managers at the Council Depot identified that the previous cleaning methods used on-site at each of their 6 depots did not offer the same SHE benefits as Rozone`s Smartwasher and Union representatives were looking for alternatives to safeguard their workers. The Rozone Smartwasher was identified and Rozone assisted in supplying a Smartwasher free of charge on trial for evaluation by staff. The Smartwasher was a winner all round – for management as it ticked their CSR requirements as well as for the users as it cleaned as well as their previous method without the health hazards, flammability risks and smell! Since then the customer has stated how much of a difference Rozone’s units have had on the business – in cost savings and happy workers!
