Laundry and Dry Cleaning

Clean, Dry, Efficient, Environmentally-Friendly Air

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. 

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

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
