Safekeeping the waste from a nuclear power plant is a well-known problem
Less well known is that many tons of garments and tools with low radioactivity is stored as garbage, condemned because they are too radioactive to use.
As for textiles they can be washed, but the risk is that these tiny radioactive particles lodge somewhere in the machine, and make the machine itself a future hazard.
Electrolux Professional has the technology to supply washing machines with high-quality stainless steel, pore-less welded seams and other water system features that enable them to safely manage load after load of slightly contaminated garments, coveralls or other textiles.
The washer will remain clean of unwanted radioactive pollution, and is safe to scrap after it’s useful working life.
The added bonus of superior wash performance and high energy efficiency together with low water consumption, effectively create a safe environment for us all.
The clean room concept
The clean room concept is the perfect solution for applications in which maximum hygiene and a dust-free environment are important such as pharmaceutical plants, virology laboratories, high-tech industries and food-processing industries.
The clean room option features indirect steam heating which eliminates contamination of the bath.
Designed without a detergent box, clean room machines are equipped with special Viton seals, continuous welding, and stainless steel bearings and panels.
All components that come in contact with the bath are made of high-grade stainless steel.
