1. MECHANICAL ACTION
Maximum mechanical action is produced
Full 360 degree rotation of the cylinder
11 complete rotations per minute
Results: less washing time
less chemicals consumption
less steam usage
less water usage
Washes all kind of linen. (the dirtiest)
Each module operates independently of the
next module, mechanically and chemically.
Two different models of S.W.S. are made to wash
batches of 72 kg. or 110 kg. linen.
Loading ratio of 1:43 (kg. / lit) in each case.
Independent baths in each module
Total removal of bath and linen on each
transfer from module to module.
3. 1 MODULE= 1 WASHING EXTRACTOR
Each module is independent, and provided with:
# Entry of 5 chemical products.
# Entry of clean water
# Entry of recuperated water
# Entry of water from the press
# Entry of steam
# Drain to recuperation
# Drain to sewer
4. RECUPERATION AND STOCK OF WATER
1 container of 325 litres of fresh water for the last rinse.
(The machine is not dependent on mains water
1 container of 325 litres of recuperated water from the
press and the 3rd. rinse that will be used for the first two
1 container of 450 litres of recuperated water from the
first two rinses to be used for pre-wash and wash.
5. FLEXIBLE PROGRAMMING
The chemist is free to create the programme of his
Once the desired programme is decided, it is
subdivided to match the number of modules.
The entry of chemical products and water is programmable
in seconds, weight, or volume.
6. COST BENEFITS
Although the basic programme assumes a work load
for the maximum weight capacity, the entry of chemical
products and water is automatically adjusted to suit the
actual weight of work load.
The 1rst. and 2nd. rinses are done with water coming
from the press and from the last rinse.
The 3rd rinse necessitates a 2 litres/kilo of fresh water
therefore, overall consumption is :
no more than 2 litres per kilogram.
7. CONTROL OF ANCILLARIES
The CARBONELL P.C. controls the loading conveyor
or bags stock system, operation of the press, shuttle
conveyor, dryers and printer.
8. COMPLETE INFORMATION
The on-screen information instantly displays the
location of work loads in the tunnel and in all ancillary
equipments and provides comprehensive management
information on the entire process.
Daily and accumulated production control of articles
Daily and accumulated control of water and
chemical products consumption per articles and clients.
Labelling of work loads after drying.
9. ACCESS AND SAFETY
The tunnel may be opened to provide the access
between any two modules in less then 10 minutes. The
operator is then free to carry out routine maintenance
or remove an obstruction in complete safety.
Addition of modules to enlarge the production of the
tunnel may be carried out in two days.
Construction is entirely in grade AISI 304 stain- less
steel (other grades optional).
Construction in accordance with EU Norms. (ISO
10472 1-2-3-4, ISO 7772, EN 292)
Independent drive for each module.
Standard components are utilised.
11. COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS
The production of the CARBONELL
system is up to 60 per cent greater than
any other machine of the same length or
same number of chambers.
Water consumption is up to 50 per cent
less than other machines currently on the
Consumption of chemical products is up to
a 30 per cent less than other machines on
