Unsure of whether you need a tunnel washer for your facility? Read below to learn more about tunnel washing systems.

What is a tunnel washer?

A tunnel washer is a type of continuous batch washing equipment. These systems offer the unique ability to handle large, heavy loads of laundry. They also offer the advantages of increased water savings, reduced energy consumption, and more efficient cleaning.

The tunnel's design consists of perforated metal. So, laundry items can move in one direction, while water and cleaning solutions move in the opposite direction. As a result, linens travel through sections of increasingly clean water and chemicals.

Furthermore, operators can continuously feed dirty laundry into one end of the tunnel, while clean linens exit the other side. This significantly decreases overall washing time and increases productivity.

Tunnel washer systems initially required the use of a single cleaning formula for all laundry items. However, the newer, advanced tunnel washers can adjust chemical levels in each individual section. So, this weakness is no longer an issue for more current models.

Continental Gibrau TBS-50 Tunnel Washer

Gibrau's TBS-50 Tunnel Washer is an exceptionally versatile system. It offers a maximum capacity of 110 pounds and multiple configurations to fulfill the needs of nearly any laundry facility. Furthermore, these systems provide unparalleled energy efficiency and productivity. As a result, it can process medium to high-volume operations, processing as much as 3,000 pounds of laundry per hour. 

The TBS-50 features a mono-block design, so it is far less expensive and much easier to install than other industrial washing equipment. This system is also available in 5-12 module configurations, with individually programmer modules for more flexible operation.

Hot water is a crucial resource for laundry facilities. Tunnel washers also need hot water to properly clean. A DC water heater is the best solution for efficient hot water production in your facility and keeping your machinery running. 

If you run out of hot water, your operation will grind to a halt. As a result, you have to deal with more downtime and, in turn, lower productivity and revenue.
