Hydro Systems, the supplier and developer of chemical dispensing and dosing solutions, used Clean 2019 to introduce its Hydro Connect Real-Time Module. When paired with a Real-Time Module, Hydro Connect offers instant data streaming to further improve the laundry process.
“The Real-Time Module helps laundries operate more efficiently, reduce costs and quickly address any abnormal conditions,” said John Goetz, global product manager, Hydro Systems (pictured). “Previously, our customers could view historical reports on productivity, chemical usage, costs and alarms. Now, operational data is available as it occurs, allowing immediate action to drive continuous improvement.”
Hydro Connect is a cloud-based ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) platform that populates data generated from the company’s Dositec central dosing systems that operate in laundries across the world. The platform offers chemical providers increased visibility into their operations while also optimising production, reducing costs and increasing customer satisfaction.
The Real-Time Module can be retrofitted to existing Dositec installations, allowing ongoing data streaming to the Hydro Connect cloud. With a real-time dashboard, chemical providers and end-users can easily see what’s happening in every washer or in every module of tunnel washers.
The Real-Time Module enables users to set alarm thresholds and receive emails and SMS notifications if one or more are triggered.
This allows laundries to reduce downtime, rewash rates and larger issues that can impact the bottom line. Hydro Systems also offers a monthly data analysis plan to provide insights and recommendations for busy laundry operators.
