How do trough ironers work?
Trough ironers are also known as hot ironers, as ironing machines work with heat and pressure to smooth laundry. Inside the machines there are one or more rollers and troughs that are heated. The laundry is drawn into the troughs while the rollers rotate and remove creases from the laundry under pressure. The laundry is smoothed in the trough ironer. The speed of the rollers and the temperature of the troughs can be adjusted as required.
Which textiles can be ironed?
Due to the way they work, trough ironers are ideal for large items of laundry such as bed linen, bed sheets, tablecloths, table runners, napkins and other flat laundry.
What are the advantages of STAHL trough ironers?
- Dimensionally stable steel trough
A unique selling point of STAHL trough ironers is the robust, powerful and energy-saving STAHL super trough, which offers an actual wrap angle of 180 degrees per trough under contact pressure thanks to the raised input area. This increases the flattening path by up to 20 per cent under contact pressure. In addition, the STAHL troughs made of robust steel ensure excellent heat storage and even heat distribution.
- Energy efficient
We rely on innovative features to increase the energy efficiency of our trough ironers. For example, the roller of our machines is lowered into the trough for ironing and not the other way round.
and not the other way round. This saves energy and makes it easier to clean the troughs because the rollers are lifted out of the troughs. STAHL skip ironers are equipped with double-shell, fully insulated metal cover bonnets, which ensure energy-saving thermal insulation and reduced heat radiation. In addition, the trough ironers have a low-maintenance direct drive without chains or V-belts. This highly efficient drive technology minimises energy consumption.
