BÖWE continuously strives for improving the energy efficiency of its already world class machines. Besides the low-level sensor that adapts the solvent quantity to the amount of garments, BÖWE developed another new energy-reduction feature in the area of environmentally friendly energy management: the automatic turbidity measurement.
Combined with the Siemens control the degree of contamination of the garments and the solvent is measured optically with a glass fibre light guide. With the aid of the measured contamination, the solvent of the first bath is pumped to distillation in the case of strong turbidity (first picture). At low turbidity, the machine decides independently to pass on to the second bath (second picture).
