Proper Care for Flatwork Ironer
Covers - Tapes - Chests

Is your plant experiencing any of the following problems:

STATIC

WRINKLING

ACCORDIAN PLEATS

CROWS FEED

JAMMING

EXCESSIVE USE OF IRONER TAPE

IRONER COVERS WEARING OUT PREMATURELY

EXCESSIVE BUILDUPS BETWEEN ROLLS

If the answer is “yes” to any of these problems, your plant is not alone. These are the most common complaints regarding flatwork ironers in the industry and they can be solved.

The common denominator is FRICTION caused be dirty chests and accumlated buildups. Eliminate the cause of the friction with periodic chemical cleaning - it is fast and easy. A once a week cleaning along with normal lubrication should solve most problems and increase the effIciency of any flatwork ironer.

If a flatwork ironer has heavy buildups, the simple use of a Screenback Cleaner Cloth in conjunction with a cleaner and lubricant is a quick and easy way to eliminate problem buildups that decrease an ironers efficiency. A clean ironer chest with well lubricated covers will improve productivity and lengthen the life of a flatwork ironers covers and tapes.
