There are many cleaning applications in textile manufacturing and industrial textile laundering.
In textile factories, manufacturing equipment, accessories, water recycling system filters, and wastewater filters must all be cleaned and maintained in order to keep the plant running efficiently. Minimizing downtime, by using the safest, most economical and environmentally friendly products that clean effectively, is critical. Returning filter system flux rates back to 100% is also important and can be accomplished with the right cleaning regimen. Typical textile manufacturing soils include: dyes, inks, pastes, lint and fibers.
Industrial laundries need fast-working, low-foaming, economical products to remove many soils and stains. Typical laundry soils include: dirt, oils, greases and sweat and other biological soils – often requiring a formulated enzyme cleaner.
