Heavy Duty Dryers Meet Specialty Market Requirements

CLM dryers are designed to meet many unique material requirements, including cleanrooms, latex processing and apparel/textile. 

Dryers designed for all cleanroom environments, including Class 1, have electro-polished stainless basket, non-static wheels and low particulate features. Special heat packages come with HEPA filters and pre-filters and heat package and control panel may be mounted on or external to dryer.

For latex, a stainless steel basket, lower plenum and exhaust are constructed with our standard heavy material gauge for long dryer life.  Components are protected with special seals and enclosed motors. Specialized clean-outs allow removal of talc residue that collects at dryer bottom. Polished baskets include customer specified periphery sizes to accommodate any latex product

Apparel/textile dryers are heavy duty and handle a variety of processes, including stone and enzyme work. Circular doors seal to the basket and rotate with it for product safety and non-marking seals further protect product. The Micro-Command III PLC offers accuracy to operate at controlled temperatures and to terminate the heat process at the appropriate times. 

CLM dryers for specialized markets are efficient, easy to operate and available in 250-lb, 350-lb, 450-lb, 600-lb, 800-lb and 1200-lb capacities. Low NOx versions are also available in all sizes. For more information, call us at 323-232-2417.

CLM On-Site Dryer Refurbishing & Upgrading Available

Pomona, CA --- Consolidated Laundry Machinery (CLM) announced  the availability of on-site upgrading and refurbishing services for its dryer customers.

“CLM has a long history of high-quality service, including upgrading and refurbishing services,” said Carolyn Landsperg, vice president and general manager. “Now we’re able to offer these services to our customers at their locations.”

On-site services are a huge advantage to clients. Downtime is lessened dramatically and this new service completely eliminates costly freight charges and rigging. 

Upgrading and refurbishing CLM dryers makes good economic sense. CLM dryers are known for their durability and long-life. Keeping them maintained properly and upgraded lessens replacement costs. And a completely refurbished CLM machine gets a new machine warranty, Landsperg said. CLM will continue to do upgrading and refurbishing at its plant in Pomona, CA, if customers prefer this option.

CLM offers Two-Stage Variable Speed Basket Drive
New dryer option maximizes dryer efficiency for a wide range of goods

Los Angeles, CA--Consolidated Laundry Machinery (CLM) announces the availability of a new two-stage basket drive that is available for all its dryer models. 

The two-stage basket drive allows the operator to set the basket rotation speed, by program, for the best material drop for each product.  A second-stage speed setting permits a reduction in speed after most of the moisture is removed, so the lighter goods don’t over rotate away from the proper drop location, later in the cycle.

When the goods fall in the correct location, the air-to-goods access is at its best.  As an example, with heavy blankets that are rolling in a pile at the bottom of the basket, air has little chance to get into the material. The new two-stage basket drive allows an increase in speed that permits better lift and drop.  A reduction in rotation speed would help with very light goods, which tend to carry over the basket top, especially when they are getting dry.   

In addition, CLM has added 3 view ports to the dryer load door to permit inspection of the load drop during operation.  This feature allows CLM to maintain the benefits of its rotating door, which includes safety for the tumbling products and a good door-to-basket air seal.

The new drive also includes a soft start for basket start-up and basket reversing.  This feature ensures the long life of the drive components (a large benefit for roller life) and it is easy on the door, allowing it to keep in step with the speed and direction changes. 

The two-stage variable speed option is available on all new CLM dryers, including the new Tumble Green Series of Low NOx dryers. 

Consolidated Laundry Machinery Company, based in Los Angeles, CA, was founded in 1962 and acquired Grantham Dryer Company in 1983. The company manufactures high-quality industrial dryers, conveyors, folders and finishing equipment.
