Appliance Testing

Performance tests for Household and Industry:

  • Washing Machines
  • Washer Extractors, Continuous Batch Washers
  • Dry Cleaning Machines
  • Dishwashing Machines
  • Household Dryer, Tumbler and Finisher
  • Mangle and Ironing Appliances
  • Floor Cleaning Machines
  • Cleaning Appliances and -tools as wiping clothes materials, pads and cleaning cloths

The essential functions of the applied programs will be documented with the help of modern measurement. Floor Cleaning Machines and Cleaning Appliances can be investigated extensively under practical conditions on every desired surface.

In addition to standard performance tests such as the Energy Label Test we develop special program features and examine special effects and new technologies.

  • Special programs (e.g. stain programs, silk programs, programs for functional textiles, impregnation or similar)
  • Alternative technologies (e.g. ozone, steam, ultrasonic)
  • Mechanical action, textile care
  • Rinsing efficiency
  • Status of hygiene
  • Saving potential of water, washing chemicals, energy
