Laundry and dry cleaning systems need to use the cleanest air possible because dirty air destroys service quality. This means your air compressor system should discharge to an air receiver and then flow through at least two filters and a dryer. All of these elements work together to remove debris and water from the air you use. Sometimes it can be difficult to line everything up properly based on size, location and usage constraints.
It may be worth turning to a smart partner like Quincy Compressors to discuss air compressors for dry cleaners if you have an existing system that faces challenges. Maintaining pressures throughout your operations can be a concern when you apply it to washers, assisting with clothes folding and much more.

- Ambient inlet air conditions
- Compressed air treatment such as drying and filtering
- Generated heat from nearby machinery
- Inconsistent maintenance due to placements that aren’t easily accessed
- Noise that can disrupt employees and machinery
- Piping design and bends that produce excess condensation
- Space and placement concerns in facilities with a variety of hanging equipment
- System leaks — every ¼-inch leak can cost $10,000 per year
