How to improve efficiency in a laundry_

In modern industry, efficiency is a key factor that determines the success and competitiveness of any business. In the case of an industrial laundry, efficiency plays a key role in achieving quality service, reducing operating costs and environmental impact. In this article, we will explore the relevance of efficiency in an industrial laundry and how it can be effectively achieved.

Why is efficiency important in an industrial laundry?

Laundry Efficiency

Efficiency in an industrial laundry has multiple benefits that affect both the business and the environment. Below, we will highlight some of the most relevant reasons:

  1. Resource optimisation: An efficient laundry is able to use its resources, such as water and energy, in a smarter and more sustainable way. This reduces operating costs and makes the company more competitive in the market.
  2. Reduced environmental impact: By reducing the consumption of water, chemicals and energy, an industrial laundry contributes to reducing its ecological footprint and preserving natural resources for future generations.
  3. Improved service quality: Efficiency translates into increased productivity and speed in the washing and drying processes, which is reflected in an improvement in the quality of service offered to customers.
  4. Improved laundry performance: By designing the laundry in an efficient way, and using the washers and dryers in an appropriate way, the working hours to process linen are reduced, incidents in the equipment are avoided, extending its useful life and reducing operating and maintenance costs.

To achieve a more efficient laundry, it is essential to adopt practices and technologies that optimise resource consumption and equipment performance. Below are some key strategies:

  1. Optimise linen flow throughout the entire process. A well-designed and organised linen flow can significantly contribute to improved productivity and reduce waiting times, resulting in greater operational efficiency. Advice from industrial laundry equipment specialists is important for defining appropriate workflows, improving processes and calculating requirements.
  2. Washing machines with water recovery tanks: Washing machines equipped with water recovery systems allow water to be reused in subsequent wash cycles. This significantly reduces water consumption and, in turn, lowers the associated costs. yishiwashing washing machines with the unique ECOTANK water recovery tank can offer water savings of up to 70%.
  3. Weighing of garments: Implementing the weighing of the garments before washing allows us to adjust the amount of water and detergent required for each load, avoiding waste and guaranteeing an optimal wash. If this weighing is done automatically inside the washing machine, as in the case of yishiwashing, by means of the programmer and with the technology of the washing machine, we ensure the exact adjustment of water and detergent and avoid moving the clothes to an external scale, considerably shortening the time and process.

  4. Efficient tumble dryers with humidity control: Tumble dryers equipped with humidity control systems automatically adjust the drying time according to the amount of laundry and its humidity level. This not only saves energy, but also prevents overheating and unnecessary wear and tear. If we also have features such as air recirculation or thermal insulation of the dryer, as in ECO-ENERGY range from yishiwashing, the efficiency increases and with it the productivity of the laundry.

  5. Efficient control of the business and machinery: controlling the equipment, monitoring the process, and detecting possible incidents in time is very important in order not to alter the rhythm of the laundry and to ensure the correct operation. Thanks to yishiwashing’ free connectivity this is very easy and fast, as you can access the machinery and data remotely from your mobile or laptop.

In conclusion, efficiency is a key factor for the success of an industrial laundry. By implementing practices that reduce resource consumption and increase equipment performance, a more competitive, sustainable and profitable business is achieved. The acquisition of state-of-the-art machinery, with efficiency-focused features, is an essential point that will make a difference in the business, as well as contributing to the preservation of the environment. At yishiwashing we are very aware of this, and we apply it in all our machinery ranges.
