WELCOMING AND HOSPITALITY, THE HOTEL SYSTEM.
We are confident that the hotel industry will be able to adopt a whole new philosophy associated with the terminology of green solutions and environmental responsibility.
That is why ANECO®‘s solution, Aneco®, is often used in a wide variety of hotel applications to ensure clean water, microbe- and bacteria-free environments and facilities, and most importantly, entertainment venues free from chemicals and their harmful and unpleasant effects.
Aneco® can be used in hot and cold water, in open or closed systems. It is a very effective, versatile and economical way to ensure that hygiene standards are maintained and high in a hotel.
What is this new philosophy?
The hotel industry’s ability to adapt to innovative and environmentally friendly end-to-end solutions enables the entire facility to reduce the use of harmful chemicals in all applications, from water treatment to interior cleaning, without increasing costs or changing treatment facilities.
By “end-to-end," we mean facility-wide applications from drinking water treatment to wastewater disposal to chemical-free solutions in kitchens, restaurants, conference centers, laundries, swimming pools, and guest rooms.
Previously, hotels had seen fit to raise environmental awareness by changing only certain products and processes that symbolize them.
Green products or solutions are often sidelined because they are extremely expensive, and if the costs do not directly impact the consumer, hotel groups suffer significant reductions in profits.
By combining the powerful forces of science and nature, ANECO® has succeeded in providing a comprehensive and environmentally friendly solution that replaces many chemicals at much more competitive prices, eliminating any purchase or storage of any other product.
How is this possible?
ANECO®’s solution is the result of advanced engineering that produces two unparalleled products developed from the electrolysis of water and salt within the facility itself.
ANECO®‘s environmentally protective systems partition water and activate solutions into an extremely-efficient oxidant stream for disinfection in various applications (Aneco®), while the antioxidant stream is used for cleaning and degreasing, such as cleaning and laundry (Cateco®).
These products can replace up to 80 percent of the existing chemicals purchased for the operation of the entire hospitality facility. Because of the product’s water concentration, there is no detergent residue on surfaces, as we know happens with old chemicals still in use today.
Traditional residual products are a breeding ground for dirt and germs.
The product is 99.69 percent water. It can be ingested or dispersed in the am- environment, has no harmful effects on humans or the earth, and yet acts as a killer on viruses and bacteria.
AREAS OF APPLICATION IN THE HOTEL INDUSTRY
Typically, staff must carry at least seven or eight chemicals and various tools for each product. Since the introduction of ANECO® solutions, this has been reduced to three easy-to-carry products, along with the latest cleaning tools.
Disinfection of any effluent water in and out without the use of harmful chemicals.
The in-house laundry service can use ANECO® products to replace various chemicals, such as hazardous products for stain removal, sterilization, and bleaching. Staff no longer need to be exposed to these hazardous substances.
ANECO® also complements existing wash powders to reduce volume and cost.
ANECO® products can be used to degrease and provide a high level of sterilization of all surfaces, appliances and hands. ANECO® systems are absolutely food safe and are also used on food products to improve the shelf life and freshness of products ranging from meats to vegetables to fruits. The degreasing product can be added to natural oil-based products to produce a heavy-duty degreasing solution..

FIELDS OF APPLICATION IN THE NAUTICAL INDUSTRY
For the industry of unique and exclusive products such as the nautical industry, the small and adaptable application sizes of ANECO® technological systems are perfectly suited to the nautical sector, which sees a wide range of applications for pleasure boats. cruises and commercial boats.
Anti-legionella and potabilization treatments on boats have been tested in cooperation with the “Estensi" shipyards (FE – Italy).
ANECO® products are perfect for the treatment of cold water, domestic hot water and especially drinking water.
Treatment of water in tanks on board with ANECO® products, both natural and ecological, ensures drinking water in the boat and harbor without the undesirable effects of chemicals or similar products on the market. The treatment of wastewater by purification so that it does not have to be returned to the sea, lakes or rivers.
ANECO® products can also be used for boat cleaning, ensuring a more and clean and comfortable environment , whitening and disinfecting living spaces, tanks and cabinets (freezers). In all cases, the reduced-to-zero corrosion characteristics preserve and prolong the life of the materials.
REVERSE OSMOSIS DESALINATION
To meet its customers’ desalination needs, ANECO® decided to propose new chemical-free reverse osmosis systems, installed in containers, with a production capacity adapted to the requirements.
THE PRE-TREATMENT PROCESS
Desalination by reverse osmosis must be carried out in order to ensure minimum turbidity conditions and to remove suspended bodies or others (e.g. algae) as well as hard parts (calcium) and metals present in the water.
For the filtration phase, a series of qwartz filters designed in fibreglass is foreseen.
Pre-feeding pressurisation: Two parallel pumps positioned on the pre-feeding skid « with alternating operation » are provided for pressurisation.
Reverse OSMOSIS desalination
Dopo una prima filtrazione, con filtri di 5 micron che utilizzano cartucce After an initial filtration, with 5-micron filters using PP fibre cartridges, the liquid is sent to the filtration stage on semi-permeable membranes, where the water is pressurised at approximately 64 bar in order to obtain a flow of filtered water. The energy required for the process is supplied by centrifugal or piston-type pressurisation pumps, whose parts in direct contact with the seawater are made of duplex stainless steel, equipped with a state-of-the-art energy recovery system.
Two dosing stations, one for anti-scale and one for antioxidant products, help to preserve the membranes.
All hydraulic components of the high-pressure line are made of duplex steel.
The membrane vessels are made of glass resin (fiberglass) and support a pressure above the expected operating pressure of 64 bar. The low pressure circuit is made of rigid PVC for pressure pipes.
Energy recovery :
The facility is designed with a state-of-the-art energy recovery system that directly transfers energy from the high-pressure concentrate to the salt water equivalent at the inlet.
This technology, combined with membranes that have reduced pressure losses and high-efficiency pumps, offers a significant reduction in energy consumption. This solution guarantees savings of at least 50 per cent of the absorbed electrical energy.
The volume of the flow membranes will be automatic and programmable with the use of previously osmoticised water. The system includes automatic valves for the correct management of the flow volume, which are in turn controlled by the PLC and with the use of the pre-feed pump, will draw reverse osmosis water directly from the tank.
Management and control :
Il sistema di desalinizzazione dell’acqua è seguito da un quadro elettrico con unità di controllo e gestione “touchscreen" e un modem per il controllo e la programmazione remoto. La strumentazione per il controllo dei diversi flussi e pressioni verrà eseguita con traduttori che consentono la lettura e il tracking digitale.
eLisy disinfection system:
The new eLisy water disinfection system allows you to obtain purified and potable water that is perfectly clear, thanks also to an algaecide and floculant action, reducing all types of bacteria, including legionellosis, by 100%.
All 100% natural. eLisy units are designed for cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation systems with 0.05% – 1.0% salt solutions (NaCl or Kcl). The units electrolyse salt water using ceramic or polymer membranes that separate positive and negative ions.
The reactions of electrochemistry are the production of different types of active solutions. The purpose is to eliminate pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, spores, moulds and fungi, as well as cleaning and removing certain heavy metals in the water.
In recent years, however, the emergence of multi-resistant bacteria, the discovery of Legionnaires’ disease and other problems associated with chlorinated compounds have led to the search for new technologies and ways to disinfect water.
ANECO® technologies have enabled the production by electronic activation of Aneco® (HClO) known to eliminate pathogens; they produce hypochlorous acid also composed of natural sodium hypochlorite ions, with a real reduction in HAZARDS, COSTS and ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.
• Easy and safe to use
• Effective: Reduced contact time for sterilisation
• Biodegradable liquids
• Simplifies operating procedures and offers quick and safe benefits.
The strength of Aneco® (HClO) in terms of the concentration of active sodium hypochlorite (chlorine) can be adjusted as required through planned programming in the production machine. A flow regulator is installed in the hydraulic part to stop the eLisy unit in the event of a water shortage and causes the machine to restart when water flow arrives.
An on/off switch, with a power indicator, allows the eLisy unit to be manually stopped or reactivated. There are several basic models ranging from 20 to 10,000 l/h, and the production capacity will therefore vary according to requirements.
The Aneco® (HClO) produced by ANECO® is placed in a storage bin and then injected into the water system as required.
The dosing schedule will depend on the water quality and will be monitored by a flow meter connected to a dosing pump.
Based on extensive studies, the Aneco® solution (HClO) is:
• Environmentally friendly;
• Free of toxicity to humans, animals and nature;
• A powerful biocide;
• Can be safely disposed of in the sewage system;
• Very fast contact biocidal action;
• Can be used in all stages of disinfection and cleaning;
• No waste on any type of surface without a possible recommended dosage;
• Can be applied to liquids, hot or cold, on ice and still in spray form;
• Produced on-site, to eliminate storage and handling of chemicals.
