Getting A Clean Dose Of IoT

A UK biotechnology cleaning solutions manufacturing company believe they have introduced the first Internet of Things based product dosing and monitoring system.

Innuscience say their Connected Cleaning system calculates product usage, which is then reported on a monthly basis against the budget per site.

A router integrated into InnuScience’s dispensing equipment communicates the data back to the company via Wi-Fi or 4G connection. InnuScience is then able to issue simple customer reports. The system can also flag up other metrics such as usage diagnostics and empty product warnings. This procedure allows InnuScience to ensure that clients never run out of products.

The cost in use of Connected Cleaning can be from as little as two pence per litre, Nick Winstone, UK MD has claimed. He said: "Products are competitively priced compared to conventional cleaning products, ruling out the need to spend big to go green."



Winstone continued: "InnuScience insists on all of its products being environmentally friendly with biodegradability at 99.99 per cent – according to OECD test 301 - being standard."

All the company’s cleaning products are either Ecologo or Ecolabel certified and are not classified as hazardous.
