Lavatec Sets Wash Aisle for Metro Detroit’s New Laundry Facility

Equipment includes tunnels, presses, natural gas dryers

BEACON FALLS, Conn. — Laundry equipment manufacturer Lavatec Laundry Technology reports it has set major washroom equipment for the new Metro Detroit Area Hospital Services laundry.

This new, state-of-the-art laundry is expected to be operational in spring of 2020.

The new 12-compartment, 220-pound tunnels, paired with Lavatec’s new LAVASPEED presses, will feed 16 Lavatec TT745G natural gas dryers, the company says. 

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 says its dryers utilize infrared technology to more efficiently determine when the linen is dry, resulting in lower dryer times and reduced energy consumption. 

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.
