Gear Guardian

Milnor’s laundry equipment will save your laundry valuable resources by running more efficiently, while lowering your total operating costs. Milnor’s industrial washer-extractors are engineered to reduce your labor costs, save on linen replacement costs, save energy, save water, and lower your total cost of ownership.

Milnor’s NFPA 1851-compliant Gear Guardian washer-extractors and cabinet dryers will properly wash and dry your delicate gear, allowing your firefighters to safely respond to emergency calls for service.

Save Water

With RinSave® water saver reducing water consumption by up to 0.4 gallons per pound of linen washed and simple hot and cold water inlets to quickly fill the washer without fill level overshoot (machines with multiple valves can overfill a machine), a Milnor washer-extractor--featuring RinSave water saver--can reduce your laundry’s water usage.

Save Labor

Milnor washer-extractors with Gear Guardian® formulas are specifically designed to decontaminate firefighter gear. Anyone can operate a Milnor Gear Guardian washer-extractor. Formula choices are clear. Just pick one of the 10 pre-programmed formulas and press the start button. Milnor’s line of T-Series washer-extractors offer a larger cylinder volume than most competitive sized washer-extractors which provides greater productivity. The result is more sets of gear washed per load. Our efficient and durable cabinet dryers with outstanding directed airflow ensure gear is dried quickly, saving valuable time.

Gear Guardian MilTouch™ control washers offer our optional GearTrace™ feature.  The GearTrace feature can track and report wash history for every barcoded gear item, assisting with NFPA 1851 guidelines on gear recordkeeping. These wash histories can be stored inside the MilTouch controller or the data can be exported out to other data management programs.

Save on Gear Replacement Costs

All Milnor Gear Guardian washer-extractors comply with NFPA 1851 standards in maintenance and care of protective gear. Safe chemical injection can help you extend gear life. Chemicals are injected in the rear of the machine (unlike certain brands where chemicals are injected near the front of the machine at eye-level). Chemicals are diluted and flushed into the sump of the washer-extractor so that raw chemical does not come in direct contact with your gear or the stainless steel.

Save Energy

A T-series washer-extractor can help to reduce your utility bills with a simple single-motor inverter drive which reaches maximum extraction speed more gradually and efficiently, reducing peak electricity amperage draw compared to multi-speed motor machines. Also, Milnor’s bigger cylinder perforations provide better wash quality by promoting excellent interchange of the goods with water and chemistry; better rinsing by allowing rinse water to freely interact with the goods; and better extraction by allowing water to escape from goods easily and quickly. All components work together to ensure fewer costly rewashes and less drying time.
