Sanitube installations are designed to conserve resources such as electricity, heat, water and detergent during operation.
The above mentioned are resources we should indeed not compromise but yet another resource and perhaps the most important one isthe human resource…people! As we take care of our environment we should also take care of each other.
A healthy working environment for those manufacturing Sanitube modules and for those working around the modules when in operation has been taken seriously into account. For instance stainless steel welding causing hazardous fume emission has been reduced by 90%. And noise emission from a wash tunnel in operation has been reduced by 50% to create aless stressful working environment which is also a safer working environment!
As an example of energy conservation Sanitube has a solid wall shell - the large diameter tube - containing the process of warm water (45 - 48° C) washing. Thermal conductivity through Sanitube is 0.04 W/(m*K) and 16.0 W/(m*K) through stainless steel as used for traditional washers. Accredited methods taken into account and calculations based on the fact that Sanitube tank and tunnel walls are 10 millimetres thick compared to steel plates of just few millimetres, heat radiation loss via Sanitube walls will be 99 % less.
