SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES — Kannegiesser continuous batch washer Power Trans SBR with Standing Bath Rinsing


Today a laundry is confronted with challenges resulting from:

  • social developments of globalization
  • individualization of the customers
  • demographic changes
  • increasing variety of fabrics
  • repeatability of the washing results independently of the batch size
  • reduction of energy and media consumption
  • loading sequences

  • Standing bath rinsing means complete control of the dosing of chemicals in every compartment of the batch washer, better dilution ratio (rinse capacity) and consistent wash and rinse results, reproducible and independent from batch size.
  • The batch washer compartments are hermetically divided from each other. This clear separation can only be achieved with straight drum walls (no Archimedean screw)
  • The customer defines the loading sequence of the batches and not the machine
