SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill., and BARABOO, Wis. — Gurtler Industries and OMNI Solutions report that the companies have entered into an agreement that allows Gurtler exclusive distribution rights for OMNI’s SULAOS tunnel washer system (Smart Ultraviolet Light Advanced Oxidation System) throughout North America and Australia.
OMNI Solutions says SULAOS is designed for today’s modern tunnel washing systems. SULAOS treats press water with a combination of potent oxidizers and ultraviolet light and returns the treated water to the rinse zone, virtually eliminating organic contaminants, which allows the SULAOS system to provide reduced microbial contamination in the rinse zone.

Known as a leader in the healthcare and tunnel washer laundry processing market, the company says it recognized the potential benefits of the OMNI SULAOS technology.

“This agreement allows us to deepen our innovative offerings for the healthcare laundry market.”
Gurtler and OMNI say that the agreement will create synergistic benefits for both companies and their customers.
