Dry cleaning machines in the ILSA MEC series use Perchlorethylene (C2 CL4 Tetrachloroethylene) which is still the most widely used solvent in the cleaning industry.
They are equipped with the most modern security systems to protect workers and the environment, including the regenerative absorbent filter to reduce solvent concentration in the air inside the drum before loading and unloading.
Solvent spillage tank All “CE”-compliant ILSA machines have a “solvent spillage tank” to contain spillage designed to withstand the forces transmitted by the machine.
Still dryingThis system is available in a standard and an industrial version. Both versions effectively reduce solvent content in distillation residue. This is achieved by circulating air through the distiller to remove part of the solvent left. The solvent is then condensed and recovered through a suitable circuit.
Colour Sensor This sensor determines whether solvent remains clear during washing and alerts the operator when colour loss is suspected. The operation threshold is adjustable; once reached, the operator may choose to start an “anti-bleeding” programme to prevent tank and filter contamination.
Water Collection Tank All “CE”-compliant ILSA machines are equipped with a ”water collection tank”. This is an additional separator that receives water from the main separator.
Cyclon This system automatically captures any residue released from the load into the air stream.
Bipot This device allows the distiller to be cleaned in full safety with no need to open the door, preventing the release of harmful emissions.
