What are the types of commercial washers?
Commercial washers typically fall into one of two categories – washer-extractors and tunnel washers. Both of these washers process a high volume of laundry loads, but there are some important differences in the way they work. For instance, washer-extractors are like the regular washing machine you find in your home, but they are much larger and more efficient. And they are a better choice for small to medium laundry facilities.
On the other hand, tunnel washers are one of the most expensive types of a washing machine on the market and are mostly used in industries that have incredibly vast volumes of laundry needs. These washers are different from the regular washer.
Capacity and size
The capacity and size of commercial washer you will want to buy depends on your facility and industry. Some industries, like medical facilities and hotels, may want big capacity laundry equipment like the split or open pocket washer-extractor that can handle a high volume of sheets. Others, like a salon or fitness center, may benefit from smaller washer and dryer that allow them to do smaller loads of washing on a continuous basis.
The size of your facility may also affect what laundry equipment you should buy.
Technology and controls
Of course, technology is changing quickly in almost every industry. Commercial laundry machinery is not different, so it’s important to consider your options when buying new or used laundry equipment. Advanced technology and control can help you improve efficiency and save money at your laundry operation.
For instance, the Tilting Open Pocket Washer Extractor features a rugged spring and shock suspension system which offer minimum installation requirement while offering high extraction speeds. Better still, it features a touchscreen color microprocessor control which makes it easier to use.
