First antibacterial membranes for water extraction presses in laundry

Maxi-Press has launched the world’s first antibacterial membrane for all common water extraction presses in laundry, says the company.

The manufacturer developed the new “ Anti-Bact” membranes to permanently reduce the risk of bacterial contamination in laundry.

They are made of an antibacterial material – tested to ISO 22196:2011 – 08 standards by the German Hohenstein Institute – which actively prevents the formation of bacteria on the membrane surface.

The anti-bacterial membranes ensure more hygienic linen. The linen is protected during the pressing process from possible bacterial contamination originating from the membrane surface. Anti-Bact actively prevents the formation of organic deposits on the membrane and is designed to give strong effectiveness against bacteria forming. This is especially significant for laundries that offer textile services to strict standards – working with Anti-Bactmembranes will significantly lower the maintenance effort required to meet any strict hygiene standards.

The new Anti-Bact products combine the germ reducing properties with all known advantages of the previous Easyfix membranes from Maxi-Press and are given the suffix “AB”. Anti-Bact or the special material in combination with the membrane is a certified and protected product of Maxi-Press Elastomertechnik GmbH. The membranes are produced directly by the company using a new production plant that was put into operation especially for this product series.

“In order to be able to implement this revolutionary product, we have made targeted investments in our machinery,” says Tim Zaiser, managing director of Maxi-Press Elastomertechnik GmbH. “We have been working on the development of Anti-Bact membranes for a long time – well before Covid”.

They produce the Anti-Bact membranes with a new, fully automatic elastomer press from Wickert Maschinenbau GmbH. The press, which was specially developed for Maxi-Press, has a clamping force of over 2,000 tonnes.

“The high quality and lasting durability of the individual parts made in Germany is absolutely essential with a clamping force of up to 20,000 kilo-Newtons,” says Zaiser. The development time for the huge 80-tonne machine was around two years and it took two months to install.
