LAVATEC places Wash Aisle for New Facility


Lavatec– a major company that provides equipment  throughout Europe, the Far Easet, South –and North America – has been selected to deliver and place a major washroom equipment for the new Metro Detroit Area Hospital Services laundry. The new state-of-the-art laundry is expected to be operational in the spring of 2020.

The new 12-compartment, 220-pound tunnels – together with the company’s new presses – will feed 16 natural gas dryers. The dryers will be loaded by an overhead monorail system onto eight conveyors that can send wet goods in either direction for loading to the next available dryer.

The company’s dryers use infrared technology in order 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.
