Waterless Washing Machine
Washing machine use just one cup of water!
Our Scientists are researching day and night on different products and fields. Fortunately they have succeeded to manufacture a washing machine which can wash cloths without water. This useful machine is designed by a British Company Xeros Ltd.
This latest washing machine has been also popular in the American market due to a new washing technique which is capable to save a lot of water by using nylon polymer beads.
These beads completely and effectively clean fabrics without any water at all and for washing cloths it uses 90% less water that traditional washers. In addition, the manufacturer says that it also consumes less detergent, less energy and there would be no need of tumble drying. The main function of nylon beads are to absorb stains from the fabric.
Using just a little bit of water to create wet conditions, the nylon beads absorb stains from the fabric into its core. The dirt and stains not only attract by the surface of the beads but also absorb into the cores which results the cleaner and whiter cloths. This is the main idea which Xeros researched and succeeded to manufacture a waterless washing machine.
Xeros waterless machine can be beneficial in terms of cost and energy management up to 30 percent of other machines. This consumer saving management gives ultimate projection not only in US but also all over the world.
Concerns with the waterless machine:
Though it seems that there would be no concerns as initial tests of cleaning with waterless machines are satisfactory. But some possible concerns are that this kind of machine may have affect on the quality of fabric by the usage of nylon polymer beads such as virtually dryness of the fabric, stiffness of the fabric and it may tear sooner than expected. Although some comprehensive tests on different kinds of fabric like silk, delicate fabric and embroidered fabric have no effect of nylon polymer beads at all.
Coalition with the Smart Brain:
There is a combine network of the Xeros Ltd. and Professor Stephen Burkinsaw with his team of researchers and scientists at the University of Leeds that is a leading textile institute in UK. Xeors Ltd has also another partnership with Green Earth Cleaning who has been planning to start production of waterless machine commercially at the end of 2010.
Along with some wonderful benefits of Xeros waterless machine but the big merit of the machine is that it will protect environment by saving energy.
