Laundry Conveyance

CCL are experts in providing bespoke conveyors and conveyor systems to the laundry industry. Whether at floor level or by overhead rail, we understand this business.

Commercial laundries are incredibly busy operations, with dozens of Washers, Dryers, Presses and Wrapper machines all competing for space. and with trolleys franticly moving the laundry between the machines and the storage/despatch area. Central Conveyors have worked with a number of UK Laundries to eliminate the trolleys by supplying conveyor systems to move the laundry between the different machines. Not only did this reduce staffing requirements and speed up the overall process, it also increased available space.

Which was promptly filled up with MORE washing, drying, pressing and wrapping machines !

Flexible Laundry Conveyors

The key characteristic for laundry conveyor systems was the need for flexible conveyors, able to meander between the machines with a variet of bends and curves, some quite tight. To accomplish this required a palet of belt bends, plastic modular curves/bends, overhead conveyors, and even a weatherproof bridge to conveyor the laundry between adjacent buildings !

Circulatory Laundry Conveyor

This was a slightly unusual conveyor; it was four interlocked conveyors forming an endless loop. The laundry entered the system via a low-level hopper, and then endlessly circulated until staff removed it. The system featured an elevated walkway for staff to do this.

Overhead Laundry Conveyor

The ultimate technique for creating more floor space is to extend the conveyors vertically. This is a double-decker overhead laundry conveyor installed two years ago. It is two conveyors, with one stacked above the other, and both above head height.

CCL have great experience and expertise of providing conveyors and conveyor systems for the conveyance of sheets, towels, clothing or any other type of textile for the laundry industry. We tend to find in laundries that space is always at a premium, but this is where CCL thrive, making the most of limited space or restrictive heights. In many instances over head conveyors can solve space-related problems, as can our ability to design conveying routes that maximise the use of available space. Curve and bend conveyors are one such solution we have applied in the laundry environment.
