Laundries are confronted with ever -changing market requirements through social developments, demographic changes and a shortage in natural resources, says Kannegeisser’s Ellie Stowe. “In many countries, and particularly in light of the coronavirus pandemic, businesses are adhering to strict rules when it comes to hygiene. “
The Kannegiesser Powertrans Vario is designed to provide uncompromising hygiene and diversity – a machine that can work at your side now and for many years to come.”
Stowe cont inues: “All Kannegiesser equipment and machinery is designed with cost effectiveness at the forefront of our minds. The Powertrans is no exception; minimising water consumption, energy and chemicals means that these savings are passed to customers. The reduced consumption of natural resources is evidence of our remarkable progress in the field of environmental sustainability.”
Developed to handle heavily soiled garments and challenging hygienic conditions, by design, the Powertrans eradicates unused space in both the inner and outer drums, tanks and piping – all places where soiling and micro-organisms can settle. All process components and parts that touch the product are made from stainless steel and are robot-welded to ensure the highest manufacturing quality. “Separate batch washing ensures process control of each singular batch. This means that no washing liquid will mix between neighbouring batches, allowing for individual treatment, which, so far has only been possible with washer-extractors.” Stowe continues: “The variety and volume of laundry articles and processes continues to increase. The Powertrans offers the highest degree of flexibility comparable to high performance washer-extractors, where performance is high and consumption is low.
“Most textile and colour load mixes can be individually adjusted to suit your logistical chain and specific laundry requirements.” Individual batch processing is based on ration metric dosing and batch separation, each batch is treated individually according to category and size. Optimised drum design, precise manufacturing methods and intelligent controls enable a greater degree of operational flexibility. Incompatible batch mixes never compromise performance. There is no counterflow, no liquids are mixed therefore colourfast textiles are never compromised – the finished batches remain high in quality and hygiene.
Stowe said: “You are able to achieve a performance volume that enables the highest possible output within the space available. The ‘straight drum’ design enables high loading ratios and overload safety without compromising on the quality of wash or finish.”
She adds: “It is important to us that our customer’s laundry runs smoothly and steadily, therefore we only use material and components of the highest quality. This, combined with guaranteed manufacturing, installation quality and a close-knit service network is how we ensure you have a long lasting, resilient partner by your side.”
