Dry-cleaning that’s kind to your clothes and the environment

SOLVONK4

SOLVONK4 has very different properties from conventional solvents in dry-cleaning.

Solar Paneling

Our main production facilities are fitted with solar a hot water (SHW) system comprised of several innovations and many mature renewable energy technologies that have been well established for many years.

Water Recycling

Water consumption has always been on Park Lane Cleaners mind. It has been a goal for Park Lane Cleaners to reduce the amount of water that is used in part for the machinery.

SOLVONK4

It is a halogen-free organic solvent with a pureness of >99% and excellent cleaning performance. This innovative solvent is not only able to dissolve and absorb lipophilic (fats, greases and oil) but also hydrophilic soil (water soluble soil).

Besides the excellent cleaning power of SOLVONK4 the cleaned textiles also have a pleasant and smooth feel. Immediately noticeable are the minimized fiber abrasion during the cleaning process and less creasing overall.

 

Advantages at a Glance:
• Halogen Free
• Pureness >99%
• Excellent Cleaning Performance.
• Effective against lipophilic and hydrophilic soil
• Easy Finish and Pleasant Feel
• Neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance in Europe

 

In Europe SOLVONK4, similar to HCS respectively cyclosiloxane D5, underlies the VOC directive, in Germany implemented by the 31st Federal Emission Protection Ordinance (BlmSchV). According to the current status of legislation in Europe SOLVONK4 is neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance! Even after the, as of December 2010, for materials CLP classification SOLVONK4 still does not require any hazardous labeling on the European market.

SOLVONK4 is biodegradable and dermatological tested with a status of “Very Good”. The named properties in combination with a very favorable classification within the framework of the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are unique and have not been achieved in the past.

The results of pre-market-tests demonstrate that SLOVONK4 has potential of becoming a paradigm for dry-cleaning.

Solar Paneling

Our main production facilities are fitted with solar a hot water (SHW) system comprised of several innovations and many mature renewable energy technologies that have been well established for many years.

In a “close-coupled” SWH system the storage tank is horizontally mounted immediately above the solar collectors on the roof.

No pumping is required as the hot water naturally rises into the tank through thermosiphon flow.

In a “pump circulated” system the storage tank is ground or floor mounted and is bellow the level of the collectors; a circulating pump moves the water or heat transfer fluid between the tank and the collectors.

Water Recycling

Water consumption has always been on Park Lane Cleaners mind. It has been a goal for Park Lane Cleaners to reduce the amount of water that is used in part for the machinery.

In recent years Park Lane Cleaners has installed a water redistribution pump system.

This revolutionary system takes water normally used to cool down various machines in Park Lane Cleaners main processing facilities and pumps it back into a storage tank. This clean water, that would otherwise be pumped back down the drain, is then used in the large washing machines located throughout Park Lane Cleaners processing facilities.

This is just one of many innovations that Park Lane Cleaners is currently utilizing in our processing facility.
