Hydro Systems Expands Central Dosing Offering to On-premise Laundries with New Dositec Options

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Oct., 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hydro Systems, part of PSG and Dover (NYSE: DOV) and a world leader in delivering chemical dispensing and dosing solutions, has released its Dositec Printed Circuit Board-Controlled (“PCB”) Multi-Washer dispensers to meet the unique needs of on-premise laundries (“OPLs”) in applications from healthcare to hospitality. Developed to provide more economical solutions for laundries with four or more smaller washer extractors, the units allow the benefits of centralized dosing to be adopted at a wider range of accounts.

“This expansion to our Dositec portfolio of products brings the benefits of centralized reporting, easier installation and space savings to OPLs,” said John Goetz, Global Product Manager, Hydro Systems. “Rather than managing numerous dispensers across multiple machines, facilities only need to install one of our new units to serve several washers.”

The new central dosing systems bring many of the same benefits as the larger and more advanced Dositec systems, which have been trusted in the industrial laundry market for over a decade. These include:

Quick and easy installs – With fewer materials like tubing and controllers needed, the installation process is much easier, reducing time for first revenue.

Compact equipment – A sleek design ensures a smaller footprint. In fact, the new Dositec systems take up 35% less wall space compared to four 1-to-1 dispensers.

Flexibility and scalability – The dispensers can support up to six washers and eight products, and can be fitted with either an electromagnetic or pneumatic pump depending on the size of washers. The electromagnetic option is built for washers handling up to 125 pounds of laundry, with a max capacity of 750 pounds across six washers. The pneumatic pump is to be used with washers handling up to 250 pounds each, or a total of 1,500 pounds.

Centralized reporting – The PCB-Controlled units are compatible with Hydro Connect, the company’s cloud-based platform that gathers and stores dispensing data. Laundries can download reports in seconds that detail shift efficiency, chemical, water and energy usage, costs and alarms.

“Previously, technology like this has only been available to industrial laundry operations due to budget restrictions,” added Goetz. “With the addition of these Dositec units, Hydro Systems now offers a complete family of products with a range of controls and pump options for multi-washer set-ups to drive ROI in both industrial laundry and OPL environments.”
