- Large ride-on scrubber-dryers now offer ec-H2O technolology
- ec-H2O cleans with the Pure Power of Water: No Chemicals. Less Water. More Clean.
Tennant Company, a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer world, has announced that its very successful breakthrough ec-H2O technology is now available on two additional larger battery-powered ride-on scrubber-dryers. This includes the Tennant 7300 mid-sized battery-powered ride-on scrubber-dryer and the Tennant 8300 battery-powered sweeper-scrubber.
ec-H2O converts plain tap water into a powerful cleaning agent without any added chemicals. Tennant Company’s ec-H2O technology was introduced in late 2007 on the Tennant T3, T5 and 5680 walk-behind scrubber-dryers. It was extended to the Tennant T7 micro-rider and the T15 mid-sized scrubber-dryer in early 2009.
With the Tennant 7300 and 8300 now offering ec-H2O as well, Tennant is expanding its product portfolio to its light and heavy industrial contract cleaner and end-user customer base, in market applications such as industry and manufacturing, warehousing, retail stores, shopping centres, aviation, and food and beverage facilities.
“It is Tennant Company’s goal to make our revolutionary ec-H2O cleaning technology available to as many customers, industries and applications as possible so as to deliver on our customer commitment regarding the health, safety and environmental benefits of chemical-free cleaning. Every time we expand our ec-H2O product offering, we are accomplishing that goal,” said Karel Huijser, vice president Tennant International.
The ec-H2O technology, developed by Tennant researchers and engineers was named by R&D Magazine as one of the most technologically significant developments in 2008 and continues to win global awards for innovation. Most recently ec-H2O won the prestigious European Business Award for Innovation.
ec-H2O delivers proven cleaning results without the negative environmental and health concerns associated with producing, packaging, transporting, using and disposing of traditional cleaning chemicals. The technology begins as water and ends as water, so it can be handled and disposed of easily and safely; it uses 70% less water than traditional cleaning methods, which increases scrub time up to three times per tank; it leaves behind no slippery detergent residue on the floor; and it releases no used detergent discharge into water systems. Eliminating the need for chemical additives enhances worker safety and reduces costs for purchasing and disposal of chemicals.
