Air vacuums are an essential part of any equipment line up in the
fabricare industry. By working together with the steam machine, air vacuums
allow for a quicker drop in steam consumption, resulting in a garment that is
freshly pressed to perfection. Some of the most popular benefits of air vacuums
Expenses – A single standalone air vacuum can be partnered with multiple
steam machines, making it the preferred alternative to purchasing steam
machines that have an air vacuum built in. With the air vacuum housed
independently, the upfront costs are lower, since most dry cleaners only need
one air vacuum to work with all of their steam machines. That also means there
is only one air vacuum to maintain. Additionally, with the more efficient steam
consumption, energy expenses will be reduced.
Footprint – Air vacuums are generally very small and can be stored
underneath a pressing machine, so they do not require any additional floor
space. For most dry cleaning companies, every inch of floor space is utilized,
so there is none to waste. There are also overhead air vacuums available for
even more versatility.
Construction – Top-quality air vacuums are crafted out of heavy-duty
materials, such as stainless steel or 12-gauge steel, to ensure they can
withstand years of continuous use at a dry cleaning facility. They are often
fully welded, rustproof, and precision balanced to make sure their performance
is reliable year after year. Additionally, they have rubber mounts that are
strategically placed to prevent vibration.
If a dry cleaning company wants to reduce energy expenses and
improve the finished appearance of pressed garments without having to take up
valuable floor space, then an air vacuum is a must.
