Nilfisk-Advance, the global leader in professional cleaning equipment, has announced the introduction of its new EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - detergent metering system. This is a second-generation development for the company following its 2003 introduction of the ECO Solution on its range of scrubber/dryers.
EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - is designed to provide a modern and highly efficient means of mixing water and detergents in cleaning applications. In tests performed, Nilfisk-Advance has been able to prove that EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - offers significant cost and time savings, as well as more reliable cleaning results. Since the precise dosage of detergent will always be applied, human error in mixing is completely eliminated.
Furthermore, on scrubber/dryers fitted with EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - the detergent is added to the water at the scrub deck - not in the tank. This means that only clean water is ever in the tank, making it unnecessary for it to be emptied or cleaned. This feature significantly reduces downtime and increases productivity.
Whereas manual mixing often gives too much or too little detergent, Nilfisk's EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - measures the exact amount according to the manufacturer's recommended dilution ratios. Highly concentrated detergent such as the disposable Nilfisk EDS Ultra Pack bottles, allow up to 20 water tank loads of running time before the detergent needs changing. To allow total flexibility in the choice of detergents used, refillable bottles are also available. The convenience of having easy-to-change detergent cartridges makes it fast and simple to meet specific cleaning application needs.
On ECO Solution mode, Nilfisk's scrubber/dryers reduce water consumption by as much as 50%. Nilfisk's BR 601 model, for example, only uses 1 litre of water for cleaning as much as 56 m².
The EDS - ECO Dosage Solution - will be featured at the ISSA Interclean exhibition in Amsterdam in May 2006. It will be introduced on Nilfisk scrubber/dryers and to one of the Nilfisk carpet extractor models in stages throughout 2006.
