The new Union “Cloud” was introduced at Clean 2015
The Cloud steam cleaning machine uses no solvent at all, it does require some water and laundry based detergent. The design of this machine is nothing like the industry has ever seen. The process uses only about 1 gallon of water for the cleaning process and 14 gallons of water for the drying process. The process uses a cloud of detergent and water to coat the garments in the drum, and then dry steam is used to flush the detergent, water, and dirt from the garments.
This small amount of non-toxic waste is drained out to a conventional drain, then the garments are dried using warm air and a fan motor. The machine can clean virtually anything including shoes, wools, silks, expensive dresses, suits and any normal dry clean only garments.
The process used in the Union “Cloud” eliminates the need for expensive tensioning equipment, the garments come out with a feel of being dry cleaned. Installation of the machine is simple, there is no extracting of the garments. All that is required is 15-20 amps of three phase electricity, 20 psi of steam, 80-100 psi of compressed air, and a soft water supply.
For easy installation, the machine does not require bolting to the floor.

All UNION machines, including the UNION CLOUD series, can be fitted on request with the innovative I-CONNECT system (optional), made up of a computer application and dedicated hardware, developed especially for these machines. I-CONNECT allows verification at a distance of various machine functions, making it possible to check in real time how the machine is functioning. The computer also incorporates MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE which will remind the operator to carry out maintenance operations for top cleaning results. This revolutionary system is built into every model of the new CLOUD series.
The DIALOG PLUS control unit is an innovative add-on introduced by UNION in order to optimize machine operation. The large and bright DIALOG screen will show all information on the running of the program and on the status of machine components.
At the end of the cycle the garments come out dry and ready to be hung up or ironed. There is no need for expensive ironing equipment as is the case with wet cleaning, as ironing will be quick and easy.
UNION CLOUD is a simple system to use, with a water consumption of just 1.3 - 1.6 USG (5-6 liters) of water and steam per cleaning cycle, water which can be drained off like a normal washing machine, plus the approximately 13 USG (50 liters) of water required for the cooling system. UNION CLOUD is truly a low running-cost cleaning system.
