Laundry and Dry Cleaning

Overview - Launders and dry cleaners depend upon compressed air as much as water. It is a utility that is sometimes taken for granted. But getting the clean, dry efficient air needed for tasks ranging from controlling washers to folding clothes requires careful consideration of a variety of factors in addition to the highest quality, most efficient compressed air and material handling equipment.

Application Challenges

Launders and dry cleaners that use compressed air effectively must account for:

  • Ambient inlet air conditions
  • Excess condensate resulting from piping design
  • Inconsistent maintenance
  • Generated heat
  • Compressed air treatment (drying / filtering)
  • Air quality safety and employee health
  • System leaks
  • Noise
  • Space constraints / compressor placement
  • Equipment reliability affecting operation uptime
Application Requirements

Products that help deliver compressed air to laundry dry cleaning operations should provide:

  • Energy efficiency
  • High reliability
  • Class 0 air quality
  • Ease of operation and maintenance
  • Low operating/maintenance costs
  • Long lasting consumable parts
  • Quiet operation
  • Variable speed control option
  • Environmentally friendly fluids and materials
  • Compact - space saving
