Résimont Laundry - Meeting Growing Expectations

By adding a Milnor PulseFlow batch washer to this laundry, productivity has increased significantly. "The Résimont Laundry has gained efficiency in laundry processing by both increasing the amount of linen processed and reducing operating cost, including water, energy, chemicals and the overall labor required to load/unload washer-extractors," says Steve Bosteels, operations manager of Mench.


Florida Hospital Laundry

While up to 42 bag drops per hour/tunnel has previously been deemed impossible to accomplish regularly, Milnor's efficient system allows Florida Hospital Laundry to achieve it consistently. Maximizing the CBW washers to capacity, Sadlier notes that operation at Florida Hospital averages 106% efficiency compared to last year's 92%.


Dilution is the Solution

Washing happens by dilution, aided by time, temperature, chemical and mechanical action. Milnor's True Top Transfer tunnels efficiently use water to provide maximum dilution, thus maximizing the effectiveness of washing and rinsing.


Central Linen Park and Milnor: Exceeding Expectations

"Water availability and the subsequent effluent disposal," notes Mr. Ruia, "is critical but not very easy in India." He credits Central Linen Park's efficiency to Milnor's PulseFlow technology, noting that since the installation, water consumption has drastically reduced from 16l/kg to 3l/kg.

Maruwa and Milnor: Tradition and Innovation Prove for Successful Partnership

“Our new PBW tunnel uses far less water, electricity, and steam, than our other batch washers.

Thanks to Milnor and PulseFlow Technology, this welcome addition to our facility will ensure prosperity and workers’ morale for years to come.


Jackson Services: Four Generations Working for the Future

One major piece of equipment the Jacksons chose not to upgrade was their 1996 G2 Milnor CBW® tunnel. President Jesse Jackson explains, “Milnor equipment produces excellent product quality and lasts for a very long time. So long, in fact, that it creates challenges for their own people to integrate their old equipment with their new equipment. The 20-year old Milnor equipment in our plant is still just working so well, that we couldn’t bring ourselves to replace it yet.”


Partners in Planning: Ott and Milnor

“When it comes to our partners and the equipment we work with, we use three keywords that are very important for us: quality, reliability and loyalty. That's why Milnor and Ott Waeschereitechnik as the German Dealer have been a good match for us for generations.” Mr. Jan Kuntze says.

Arrow Linen: Targeting Productivity and Profits

Pellerin Milnor has 200 PBW™ tunnels operating throughout the world and the Maglioccos had been aware of the ongoing successes of Milnor’s PulseFlow® Technology since 2009.
