Post number 3:

"CCCC predecessors cleaned dry cleaning – literally. The industry has a standard (though don’t recognise it as a vital standard and quality parameter)) for the degree of cleaning: The retention of 20 microns (20,000 nano metres) soiling left in textiles. No matter what solvent and technology is used, the soil removal efficiency remains the same. 20 microns soil retention is dirty – in fact very dirty.

We reduced this soil retention to a mere 4 nano metres and the results were so incredible that it turned dry cleaning philosophies, and practises on their head. What you read below is our experiences after successful commercial operations of more than 20,000 hours using 6 different Perc machines with innovative operational modifications."

A source close to the industry, machine manufacturers and suppliers has shown strong disagreement with our claim in the quotes above, and states that 4 nano filtration efficiency has long existed before we laid claim to it and practised it. They claim that neither have we been will informed nor the dry cleaner has had a closer look before purchasing his machine.

Perhaps readers can identify machine manufacturers who do supply the market with 4 nano metres filters capable of producing crystal clear quality solvent. We would be very interested to contact them.
We are not aware of the existence of a single machine in commercial premises in the UK or for that matter in the entire world that practise 4 nano efficiency. If the objector claims that his machine brand supplies the market with what we wanted along, then he could point us in the direction of shops any where in the UK and we will gladly travel there to see the results for ourselves and report our findings back to you.
The problem is more fundamental than whether 4 nano efficiency exist or not, commercially. The problem is that the industry and machine manufacturers do not believe that efficiencies in excess of 20 microns are needed. As we claimed earlier, all machine manufacturers are proud to announce that their machines are capable of filtering out soiling matter smaller than 20 microns.

The difference between us and them is that they call 20 microns residual soiling as clean and we call it dirty. In fact very dirty! So the question is, the mysterious machine with 4 nano efficiency is technically uncalled for. Who and what made them think of 4 nano metres for commercial operations in the first place?

The only filter mesh size smaller than 20 microns is practised by GreenEarth in their North American machine models, according to Mr Timothy Maxwell, the president of GreenEarth Kansas city and Martin Gregson (early to mid 2007 phone written recorded phone calls), the then technical director of Johnson Cleaners. Mesh sizes of between 5 microns and 10 microns are in practice in North American machines. 20 microns efficiency is considered more than good enough for European commercial practises.
