precisely, 100% of the time. They also use safety checks to protect equipment, employees and an entire plant. For example, if a leak arises, managers will receive an alert from the dispenser and can take immediate action. This prevents the leak from persisting, reducing the risk of damage or needless downtime. Such dispensers also increasingly use sensors to check and monitor information, such as the temperature of a load or the flow of chemistry, further tightening integration with the washer.


Laundries generally rely on employees or their chemical provider to make chemical, water or machine adjustments, but this time-consuming responsibility can now be controlled by


advantage. Upcoming developments from chemical dispensing manufacturers include:


Automated inventory management: Taking inventory is a tedious task that often results in ordering too much or too little product. If dispensers were able to take on this job, laundries could improve the accuracy of their inventory management. By integrating chemical usage data into enterprise (ERP), laundry management systems or customer relationship management (CRM) software packages, dispensers could detect when a certain amount


“IoT enables facility managers to have remote monitoring and control capabilities, making it possible to keep tabs on chemical dispensing, even when they aren’t on site.”


of chemical usage is below a designated threshold and automatically trigger an order for more chemical.


Predictive maintenance: When a dispenser or washer requires maintenance, it’s not always noticeable. Unplanned maintenance can result in downtime and costly replacements. However, dispensers may one day be able to provide predictive maintenance on downstream equipment by analysing data and recommending repairs and upkeep before problems arise.


Load by load data: Advanced dispensers may be able to log data for every wash for compliance purposes and to provide proof of sanitation. Having access to this data, from the weight to the temperature or pH of each load, will help laundries better manage operations and stay organised.


dispensers. The IoT tracks production processes and handles automated adjustments to dispense chemical based on feedback from an accurate flow meter. This improves cleaning while reducing costs and waste caused by rewashing.


Data from sensors provides unique insight into the laundry process, encouraging managers to take a closer look than ever before at key performance indicators like chemical usage by formula, volume of washes and average projection rate. This valuable information allows facilities to identify errors, reduce their reoccurrence and improve productivity.


The future of laundry


Connected dispensers already focus on remote monitoring, reducing downtime and delivering important data on chemical consumption, but this is only the beginning. Knowing what to expect and what to look for in new dispensing equipment will give laundries a competitive

Data analysis: With more data comes more responsibility, and an abundance of information may intimidate laundry managers. Chemical dispensing manufacturers will likely expand their services to include assistance in analysing and interpreting data. They could also provide laundries with consulting and educational programmes to help managers and employees react appropriately when an alarm goes off, and instruct them how to analyse and organise data on their own.


Better laundry, better tomorrow


Chemical dispensing technology has vastly improved from only a few years ago, allowing the laundry industry to improve and grow. In the near future, additional technological advancements will make the laundry process even simpler, safer and more sustainable. Smart dispensers are transforming the wash process for the better, providing cleaner laundry for a cleaner future.
