Title
(EN) CLEANING INDICATOR AND METHOD OF USING SAME
(FR) INDICATEUR DE NETTOYAGE ET SON PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A cleaning indicator including a substrate having an image upon it that can be interrogated to assist in monitoring a process for washing articles in a washing machine system. The image can be a printed image, which in turn is covered at least partially by a test soil to be removed by the washing process. Alternatively, the test soil can be formed into an image on the substrate. The cleaning indicator can be imaged before the start of a washing process to allow the washing process to proceed only if the appropriate image is observed. The cleaning indicator can be imaged during operation of the washing process, and when a criterion for cleanliness is met, the washing process can be automatically terminated. A washing system for using the cleaning indicator in an automated washing process is also disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un indicateur de nettoyage comprenant un substrat ayant une image sur celui-ci qui peut être interrogée pour aider à surveiller un processus de lavage d'articles dans un système de machine à laver. L'image peut être une image imprimée, qui, à son tour, est recouverte au moins partiellement par une salissure de test devant être éliminée par le processus de lavage. En variante, la salissure de test peut être formée en une image sur le substrat. L'indicateur de nettoyage peut être imagé avant le début d'un processus de lavage pour permettre au processus de lavage de se poursuivre uniquement si l'image appropriée est observée. L'indicateur de nettoyage peut être imagé pendant le fonctionnement du processus de lavage, et lorsqu'un critère de propreté est satisfait, le processus de lavage peut être automatiquement terminé. L'invention concerne également un système de lavage destiné à utiliser l'indicateur de nettoyage dans un processus de lavage automatisé.
