In addition to the quantifiable savings on energy consumption, labour/call-out charges, equipment downtime, cleaning and Legionella control, the hotel are also enjoying the following additional benefits:
- Improved water quality and efficiency of hot water equipment
- Extended life of all water related equipment and improved efficiency
- Reduction in scale and corrosion to critical equipment, meaning decreased engineer visits and reduction in spare parts which would otherwise carry direct and indirect increases in the hotel’s carbon footprint
- Reduced chemical use
Since installation in December 2020, the Integro™ technology has been reported to have been working really well throughout the hotel to eliminate existing scale and prevent any further build-up and the hotel are continuing to use the system to great effect.
What the Hotel had to say:
I haven’t had Rational out to descale the steam ovens since we re-opened, we used to have to call them every month to do a full descale so the system is working really well. The dishwashers are also all keeping free from scale. I have noticed a difference in the limescale build up, it’s virtually non-existent since installing the technology. They have caused a few leaks though, where the limescale has been eaten away round joins and valves, but that was to be expected and is a good thing because it identified issues we would never have seen and enabled us to repair them before they caused too much damage.
