The Orbio®5000-Sc - Tennant's Latest Sustainable Cleaning Innovation

Tennant's Orbio 5000-Sc uses tap water, a small amount of salt and electricity to create an on-demand, effective multi-purpose cleaning solution that works with most existing cleaning equipment and methods. The Orbio 5000-Sc uses Split Stream technology to automatically generate a ready-to-use cleaning solution that is always at the right dilution, so there is no more need to mix concentrated cleaning chemicals. Using the Orbio 5000-Sc solution, cleaning professionals can clean spaces without the potential health and safety risks associated with traditional cleaning chemicals.

ec-H2OTMTechnology - Using the Power of Water for Sustainable Cleaning

Also featured in the Tennant exhibit will be the company's exclusive chemical-free ec-H2O technology. ec-H2O electrically converts water into an innovative cleaning solution that effectively cleans dirt, saves money, improves safety and reduces environmental impact compared to daily cleaning floor chemicals.
