Properly cleaning dairy towels may help lower bacteria and contaminates such as Somatic Cell Counts (SCC) in milk, leading to healthier cows and larger premiums from milk processors. Healthier cows mean a huge savings on vet bills and antibiotics, but can also mean huge kickbacks from milk processors for low SCC. Realizing that productivity is key, Continental washers offer extract speeds of 387 G-force – cutting dry time by as much as 50 percent. Dairy farms can reduce operating costs by utilizing the excess hot water to clean reusable cloth towels as opposed to disposable paper towels. Think “green.” Automatic chemical injection capabilities ensure dairy towels are consistently cleaned – at the right temperature and with the correct chemicals to eliminate bacteria every time. E-Series Continental washers can be installed in unconventional locations without concrete foundations and bolts.
The dairy environment calls for laundry equipment built for the rigors of constant use. Most dairies utilize on-premise industrial washer and dryers for cleaning towels used to prepare cow udders for milking. Features including high-speed extraction, 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
At a dairy, it’s all about reducing Somatic Cell Counts (SCC) in milk. By properly cleaning dairy towels in an E-Series Washer-Extractor, dairies can lower SCC – enjoying healthy cows and greater milk processor premiums. Fewer cases of mastitis can equate to huge savings in vet bills and antibiotics. Similarly, kickbacks from milk processors for low SCC can mean big money.
E-Series High-Speed Industrial Washer-Extractors
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 50 percent, as a result. High-extract significantly boosts laundry productivity and cuts gas consumption!
To ensure the right detergents, softeners and bleach are used at the appropriate time, E-Series 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
Thanks to a freestanding design, E-Series Washers can be placed in unconventional locations without concrete foundations and bolts.
E-Series Washers are highly programmable to meet all laundry needs at a dairy. This makes it possible to also clean mop heads, uniforms, rugs and more. Once programmed, operators just select a program number and press start.
