“How can we save more natural resources? ” is a question we often hear from our customers. We have already written how industrial laundries can save water before. But your dryer can also save you much energy with just a minor touch. With the power of software, you can turn your dryer in an energy saving machine.
Smart Control for Dryers is our universal control for your industrial dryer. Instead of outdated printed circuit boards, we deliver our software on a user-friendly PLC (partnership with Schneider). In addition, the software is compatible with equipment from every manufacturer; Smart Control integrates seamlessly with your current systems.
There are two ways to determine whether your batch is dry. One can opt for a humidity or infrared sensor. With most dryer controls, you must pick one way. However, Smart Control for Dryers gives you more freedom. Why not dry with both an infrared sensor and humidity sensor?
It’s entirely up to you. Determine whether the batch is dry via an infrared sensor, humidity sensor or both.
Green and Quality benefits
The infrared sensor ensures a shorter drying time during which the linen is dried. An infrared dryer can save 40% time compared to a regular dryer. This way, the linen is not dried longer than necessary: no more residue ends up in the environment.
This shorter drying time then results in five proven benefits for the laundry:
- Smart energy saving
- Better quality of the dried linen
- The chance of wet linen after drying is minimal
- Longer lifespan of textiles
- 40% saving of time and costs compared to regular dryers
Smart Control Range
In 2019, we fully rolled out Smart Control at a large laundry in the Netherlands (with machines from different manufacturers). This was the first laundry in the Netherlands connected to Smart Control and Laundry Intelligence (our dashboard that displays data from all machines).
We started fitting Smart Control on machines from Girbau. But, to answer the key question, Smart Control is universal: it’s compatible with washers from Primus, Unimac, IPSO, Unica, Tolon, Image, Kannegiesser, Danube… you name it.
