Calendar Drying Irons can be fed linen at 40-50% residual moisture, and so in most instances where High Speed washers are employed, no tumble drying or conditioning is required for single sheet flatwork. This translates to increased quality finishing, increased linen life, lower labour costs and lower electricity costs associated with tumble drying. These roller irons can be installed against a wall to save space and will return the finished garment to the operator for folding. Volume and size of linen determines the size of the required roller iron.
In situations where the volume of work warrants something more than hand irons, the Tullis range of conventional ironers require linen to be fed at 10-15% residual moisture, meaning a ‘conditioning’ period is required in the tumble driers first. Conventional Return Feed Roller irons can be installed against a wall to save space and will return the finished garment to the operator for folding. Volume and size of linen determines the size of the required roller iron.
In situations where higher production requirements and flawless quality are prerequisites, and budget permits – the Laco range of Flexi-Bed ironers offer something that cannot be matched by any ‘belt’ ironer. Different in basic design from the ironing strap system (belts) used in the most other Calendar Drying ironers, these ironers offer upwards of 15% higher production in the same ironing width, with higher quality finishing, and with operating costs at almost half of those found in other conventional ‘belt’ ironers.Configured in either Return-Feed, or Through-Feed formats the ironer utilises electric elements mounted directly onto a thermal oil heat exchanger.
