COMMERCIAL WASHING MACHINES - BUYING ADVICE


FORM FACTOR
Freestanding: for general low-medium volume use.
Rigid mount: fixed to solid concrete floor for heavy use and unbalanced loads.
Barrier: where avoidance of any cross-contamination between soiled and clean items is essential. These machines use a double door system.
Stackable: where space is limited or needs to be maximised, machines (washer / dryer) can be stacked.

FINISH
If you are using the machine in a busy laundry where there will be frequent moisture in the air, then opt for a machine with stainless steel exteriors. This will help prevent rust and corrosion. Where the standard specification is not fully stainless steel housing, on most commercial / industrial washing machines a stainless steel cabinet can optionally be specified.

OPERATION
Most of our machines can be purchased as button-operated or coin-operated.

CAPACITY
For comparison, domestic washing machines usually have a 5-7kg capacity. The load capacity for your commercial or industrial washing machine will obviously depend on the frequency and volumes of items you are washing and the nature of the items - duvets, robes, curtains etc will require a higher capacity machine.

A higher capacity machine may be more cos efficient and reliable to operate, rather than purchasing a lower cost smaller capacity machine and subjecting it to over use.

DRAINAGE
Generally, two types of drainage system are available. Dump / Drain Valve is a gravity based system. Drain Pump is where the waste and water is pumped out of the machine and down the drain. Where you have items which are heavily soiled, always choose a sluice Dump Valve type machine. A plinth may be required for the gravity based systems.

ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
Basic machines will use standard single phase 13A 3-pin UK plug. More powerful machines will use either Single Phase 30A or Three Phase 32A, and will require a qualified electrician for connection to a suitable electrical supply.

SPIN SPEED
Where high water retention items (eg. towels, duvets, robes) are being washed, choose a machine with a high spin speed. This will reduce drying time, drying costs and reduce wear and tear on the clothing items. Look at both the spin speed and the "G factor".

If you are not frequently washing high water retention items, then a lower spin speed will result in less noisy operation.
