Most dairies utilize on-premise industrial washer and dryers for cleaning towels used to prepare cow udders for milking. The dairy environment calls for laundry equipment built for the rigors of constant use. Features including high-speed washer extractors, automatic chemical injection and a soft-mount design ensure that equipment can be installed easily in most spaces without concrete foundations and bolts; that towels come out of the washer nearly dry and ready for use; and that bacteria and contaminates are properly removed from each load every time.
Reducing Somatic Cell Counts (SCC) in Milk
By properly cleaning dairy towels in an E-Series Washer Extractor, dairies might lower Somatic Cell Counts in milk, leading to healthier cows and larger premiums from milk processors. Fewer cases of mastitis can equate to huge savings in vet bills and antibiotics. Similarly, kick-backs from milk processors for low SCC can mean big money.
E-Series High Speed Industrial Washer Extractor
Soft-mount E-Series Industrial Washer Extractors produce extract speeds of up to 387-G force — double the extract of most traditional, hard-mount industrial washers. Dairies that dry towels can expect to cut dry time by as much as 40 percent, as a result. High-extract significantly boosts laundry productivity and cuts gas consumption!
Automatic Chemical Injection
To ensure the right detergents, softeners and bleach are used at the appropriate water temperature and cycle, Pro-Series industrial washers offer automatic chemical injection capabilities—an essential feature for dairy farms. Auto injection eliminates the need for adding chemicals manually and chemical overuse and waste. It ensures dairy towels are consistently cleaned every time. In turn, dairy farmers know their towels are ready for use in milking. Typically, automatic chemical injection can result in a significant savings in detergent costs.
A Soft-Mount Design is Key
At a dairy where extra space is precious, Pro-Series soft-mount industrial washers can still find a home. Thanks to a freestanding design, these industrial washers can be installed in unconventional locations without concrete foundations and bolts. Nearly anywhere there's extra space—utility and storage rooms, garages, etc., Pro-Series installs easily.
Of course, these industrial washers are highly programmable. So if you'd like to launder farm uniforms, rugs, mop heads or comforters from the house, it couldn't be simpler!
