Industrial washing machines

Industrial washing machines are designed for use in commercial applications (e.g. Hotels washing machines, hospitals washing machines, retirement and care homes and all businesses). We recommend purchasing an industrial washing machine if you need to perform lots of washes on a regular basis. Professional washing machines differ from conventional washing machines in many ways:

Large and frequent washes

Where conventional washing machines fall short, professional washing machines really begin to shine. Multiple wash loads every day are no problem for industrial washing machines. This is what they are made for.

Industrial washing machines can be controlled and programmed with pinpoint precision. For all applications in which hygiene plays an important role, this is very important: For example, to kill bacteria and germs, the wash must be kept at a specific temperature for a specific time. Keeping to these defined parameters is only possible with an industrial washing machine. A conventional washing machine in a 60°C wash cycle can fluctuate between temperatures of 55 and 64°C.

Optimal results

Industrial washing machines are usually freely programmable. This means you can pick the optimum wash cycle for the different textiles. High-quality professional machines allow you to wash all sorts of textiles in just one commercial washing machine, for example dirt-trapping mats, bed linen or towels.

Because all of the parameters in bespoke washing machines can be individually defined, professional washing machines are suitable for almost every textile and application.

In addition to professional laundry facilities, industrial washing machines are most commonly used in hotels and catering, retirement and care homes, hospitals, fire brigades, contract cleaning services and even sports clubs, animal shelters and cruise ships.

Cost comparison
Conventional vs industrial washing machines

An industrial washing machine naturally costs more to purchase compared to a conventional washing machine. However, this price difference soon pays for itself in commercial applications: This is due not only to the significantly longer service life, but also industrial washing machines are equipped with features which ensure that water and energy consumption are minimised. Therefore: When deciding on what type of machine to purchase, it is important to take into account overall cost. A comparison based purely on the purchase cost of a professional washing machine is not effective.

For special applications

You can find industrial washing machines that are designed for a single purpose, e.g. mop washing machines. However, special washing machines for single purposes are not usually required: A high-quality professional washing machine offers you all the options, so that different textiles can be washed using different programs, without having to purchase a separate washing machine for each textile type.

Exception: Hygienic washing machines

There is always an exception to the rule: Hygienic washing machines are pass-through washing machines which are loaded from one side, the dirty side, and unloaded from the other side, the clean side. This ensures that clean loads do not come into contact with dirty loads, therefore meeting the highest hygiene requirements.

What does an industrial washing machine cost?

The cost of an industrial washing machine can vary widely depending on factors such as capacity, features, and brand. Smaller, entry-level industrial washing machines can start at around $1,000 to $2,000, while larger, high-capacity models with advanced features can range from $4,000 to $20,000 or more. It’s important to consider your specific business needs and budget when investing in an industrial washing machine.

What is an industrial washing machine?

An industrial washing machine is a heavy-duty, high-capacity appliance designed for commercial and industrial use. Unlike standard household washing machines, industrial models are built to handle large volumes of laundry, making them ideal for businesses such as hotels, hospitals, and laundromats. They are known for their durability, speed, and efficiency in washing various types of fabrics, from linens to workwear.

What is the difference between commercial and industrial washers?

The primary difference between commercial and industrial washers lies in their capacity and intended use. Commercial washers are suitable for small to medium-sized businesses, while industrial washers are built for heavy-duty, high-volume laundry needs. Industrial washers often have larger capacities, faster cycle times, and enhanced durability to withstand continuous use. They are designed to handle more demanding laundry loads, making them a crucial asset in industries with substantial laundry requirements.

Are industrial washing machines worth it?

Yes, industrial washing machines are worth the investment for businesses with high laundry demands. They offer several advantages, including faster washing cycles, increased durability, and the ability to handle large volumes of laundry efficiently. While the upfront cost may be higher than commercial or domestic machines, the long-term benefits, such as reduced labor costs and improved laundry quality, make industrial washing machines a valuable addition to businesses that rely on efficient laundry operations.

Why are commercial washers so expensive?

Commercial washers tend to be more expensive than standard household machines due to their robust construction and specialized features. They are built to withstand frequent use and handle larger loads, which requires stronger materials and more durable components. Additionally, commercial washers often offer advanced features like customizable wash cycles, faster cycle times, and enhanced water and energy efficiency. While the upfront cost may be higher, businesses benefit from their reliability and efficiency in the long run.

What is the difference between domestic and industrial washing machines?

Domestic washing machines, designed for household use, have smaller capacities and are intended for occasional use. In contrast, industrial washing machines are engineered for commercial and industrial settings with high laundry demands. They have larger capacities, shorter cycle times, and enhanced durability to handle continuous operation. Industrial machines often offer advanced programmability, heavy-duty components, and superior water and energy efficiency, making them ideal for businesses requiring efficient and reliable laundry solutions.

How long do industrial washing machines last?

The lifespan of an industrial washing machine can vary depending on factors such as brand, maintenance, and usage. Generally, well-maintained industrial washers can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years or more in a commercial or industrial setting. Routine maintenance, including cleaning, servicing, and part replacements as needed, can extend the machine’s lifespan and ensure consistent performance.

Can industrial washing machines handle delicate fabrics?

Yes, many industrial washing machines are equipped with programmable settings that allow for gentle washing of delicate fabrics. These settings adjust factors like water temperature, cycle duration, and spin speed to ensure that delicate items are treated with care. However, it’s essential to read garment labels and follow manufacturer guidelines to ensure proper handling of specific delicate fabrics in an industrial washing machine.
