SmartWash: advantages, limitations, and how it works

4 minutes to read

In recent years, a new way of thinking about washing has come to the fore, especially in sectors such as retail, food, pharma and healthcare – where the quality and efficiency of washing are critical success factors. At this point, it’s worth asking: what exactly is SmartWash? How does it differ from traditional methods? And what are the practical benefits?

What is SmartWash?

SmartWash represents an innovative approach to industrial washing. Its goal is to optimize washing operations for all types of utensils and tools, with better wash quality in a shorter time, with less consumption of resources – such as water and energy – and with minimal human intervention.

This is where Somengil’s MultiWasher comes in: it is an industrial washing machine designed to sanitize a wide variety of industrial items, such as trays, trolleys, filters and spare parts. The secret to SmartWash’s efficiency lies in ensuring that each wash cycle is adapted to the specific needs of the items to be cleaned.

What are the main advantages of SmartWash?

SmartWash represents a breakthrough in industrial washing efficiency, integrating intelligence and automation to achieve superior results in terms of cleanliness, resource efficiency and human productivity. The main advantages are:

1. Water saving

SmartWash equipment, such as the MultiWasher, is designed to minimize water consumption during each wash. Thanks to intelligent sensors and systems, these machines automatically adjust the amount of water used, contributing to more sustainable practices.

2. Reduced energy consumption

SmartWash devices are equipped with sensors that monitor the equipment’s performance in real time. This constant monitoring enables automatic adjustments to optimize energy efficiency, such as regulating water temperature and managing operating time.

3. Reduced detergent consumption

SmartWash systems measure the exact amount of detergent needed for each wash cycle. This avoids wasting chemical products and guarantees effective cleaning.

4. Higher washing capacity

Improved washing cycle efficiency and integrated automation result in greater washing capacity. The MultiWasher can wash a wide variety of industrial items in a single setting, reducing downtime and increasing processing capacity.

5. Adaptability to different items

SmartWash machines incorporate advanced algorithms that analyse the unique characteristics of the items to be washed. This allows washing cycles to be customized, guaranteeing efficient removal of dirt and residue, while maintaining the integrity of the materials.

The system goes even further, by detecting the level of dirt or contamination of the loads and, based on this information, it adjusts the amount of detergent consumed, avoiding excessive use when it is not necessary.

What are the limitations of the SmartWash system?

Implementing SmartWash systems can involve significant investment. The initial cost can be a challenge for some companies, especially those with limited budgets.

However, the initial investment should be weighed against potential savings in operating costs, such as water, energy, detergent and labor.

How does it work?

A SmartWash system follows these steps.

  1. Loading. The industrial items to be sanitized are placed in the machine on trolleys designed for this purpose and to facilitate the loading process. There is no need for pre-washing, which speeds up the process significantly.
  2. Automatic adjustment of washing parameters. A SmartWash system automatically analyses the load of items, using sensors to assess characteristics such as size, level of soiling and type of material. Based on this information, it dynamically adjusts the parameters of the wash cycle, including water temperature, pressure, wash time and the dose of detergents.
  3. Efficient start of the wash cycle. The wash cycle is started, ensuring effective and bespoke cleaning for each item. Advanced technologies are activated to optimize resources such as water and energy. In the case of the MultiWasher, the machine provides real-time feedback on the status of the cycle, allowing operators to monitor the washing process.
  4. Completion of the cycle and preparation for use or storage. Once the wash cycle is complete, the items emerge clean, dry and ready for use or storage.

SmartWash, intelligent industrial hygiene technology

SmartWash technology represents a remarkable advance in industrial washing efficiency. Companies of all sizes and sectors can benefit from custom and effective sanitizing processes, where washing parameters are dynamically adjusted based on the unique characteristics of each load.
