SOIL- AND STAIN REMOVAL MONITOR INDUSTRIAL LAUNDRY PROCESSIndustrial Cleaning Monitor

Why is measurement of soil and stain removal important?

  • Scoring the degree (level) of stain removal, as well as monitoring the continuity of the verified washing processes (early insight into deviations )
  • Insufficient cleaning bears risk of surviving bacteria by encapsulation in dirt and stains
  • Establishing quality objectives with (end) customer substantiated with reporting
  • Cumulation of poor soil removal will cause hazing of the laundry

Industrial Cleaning Monitor (ICM)

The Industrial Cleaning Monitor (ICM) is especially developed to measure the soil and stain removal of industrial laundry processes. The monitor contains different kinds of soils/stains, each one equivalent to a different kind of soil, which occur on lightly and heavily soiled laundry.

The measurement of the results

The tristimulus blue remission of the washed monitors is measured with a tristimulus type colorimeter.

If you do not have such an analyser available, we can measure the results for you.Tristimulus Reflection Analyser

The monitors can be bought with and without analysis. Reports are available in the next languages: Dutch, English, French and German.

CCD has a low cost portable tristimulus analyzer (colorimeter) TRA developed, see
