The Gjosa Shower Head is designed to minimize the high warm water, energy and resource consumption.
Professional hair care in salons requires large amounts of warm water, energy and resources. Gjosa is developing a new type of shower head, which has a significantly reduced water consumption and allows the direct infusion of additives into the water flow. The project team consists of the company Gjosa and the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
The following points should be achieved within the project:
– Understanding and improving the fluid dynamics of spray formation.
– Understanding and improvement of in-situ emulsion formation in this context or for new applications.
– Construction and testing of new mockups.
Professional hair care in salons requires large amounts of warm water and energy. It is possible to optimize this process and save valuable resources. Gjosa and the University of Lucerne have accepted the challenge. It is expected that the project will be realized by the end of the year.
Outlook and next steps.
The project is currently in the conceptual phase. Innosuisse granted an Innocheque (CHF 15’000) for a basic study of spray characterization, evaluation of the energetic optimization and emulsification performance. At the moment an Innosuisse proposal is under preparation. Are you interested in bringing in and contributing your expertise? Then let us know.
