Lavatec to Power Wash Aisle at Metro Detroit’s New Laundry Facility
Lavatec Laundry Technology Inc., Beacon Falls, CT, recently installed major washroom equipment for the new Metro Detroit Area Hospital Services laundry. This new state-of-the-art co-op laundry is expected to be operational in spring of 2020. Lavatec was selected as the washroom provider for the facility, according to a news release.
Two new 12-compartment, 220-pound tunnels, paired with Lavatec’s new LAVASPEED presses, will feed 16 Lavatec TT745G natural gas dryers. The dryers will be loaded by an overhead monorail system onto eight conveyers that can send wet goods in either direction for loading to the next available dryer.
Lavatec dryers use infrared technology to more efficiently determine when the linen is dry, resulting in lower dryer times and reduced energy consumption, the release noted. The dryers will be unloaded by conveyors that will transfer the loads to a monorail system for transport to the finishing side of the plant.
Two tunnels were delivered for phase one of the project, and there are plans for a third tunnel in the future.
