High performing air compression equipment is at the heart of a healthy, and profitable dry cleaning business. Dirty, moist air is bad for business— and a poorly maintained unit can send electrical costs through the roof. An inefficient compressor not only wastes energy, but it destroys service quality, and often causes costly delays leading to upset customers. If you’re like most dry cleaning establishments, the margin for a successful operation is paper-thin. There’s no room for inefficiency from staff… or equipment.
Like any automated business, chemical dry cleaning demands exacting methodologies and tight tolerances in terms of equipment configuration and placement, heat, noise, moisture and air quality. Any glitch in the system can negatively affect schedules, quality control, and contribute to downtime issues. Perhaps the biggest challenge facing dry cleaners are those devastating system leaks. Even a tiny quarter-inch perforation can cost a business up to $10,000 per year in wasted air. Let’s face it— poorly maintained air-compressor systems are prone to leaking, not to mention the added hit from dramatically higher electrical costs. Proper maintenance is key— and most fixes are quick and simple. Just ask Scales.
