Milan: a bird’s eye view

21 September 2022

LCNi takes a look over the exhibition floor at Fiera Milano Rho as EXPODetergo prepares for kick off in Milan. it is an impressive line-up

EXPOdetergo, the four-yearly leading event in Europe, dedicated to laundry and wet-drycleaning machines, technologies, products and services, will take place at Fiera Milano Rho from 21 to 24 October where visitors will be able to discover the latest trends and innovations from a large selection of companies gathering for the first major European show since Covid-19 struck.

Sustainability, digitisation and sanitisation are the three key words around which the project is being built, according to Paolo Pizzocaro, Fiera Milano exhibition director of the event, who said: “The world comes here to see what’s new in the sector, because it is here that the market can do business and network.”

The large number of companies that formalised participation early in the year was undoubtedly extremely signifi cant, said Marco Sancassani, president of EXPODetergo International. “Such a massive participation so many months before the event is in fact a sign of the great vitality of this sector, of its resistance and the desire to get back into the game, which I am sure will fi nd full fruition in an unprecedented edition of the exhibition.”

The October event promises to provide a global view of the market and the innovations that companies and their research and development departments have been working on in recent years.

“The Alliance team in Europe is looking forward to this year’s Expo Detergo show,” said Jean-Baptiste Vandamme, senior vice president sales Europe. “Due to Covid restrictions, the laundry industry did not have the chance to meet physically, so having the opportunity to interact with customers and visitors is something we are very much looking forward to.”

Highlights include the new C-Dryer, condenser dryer, displayed with the matching semi-commercial front load washer, marketed in Europe under the Speed Queen Professional name.

“The Speed Queen C-Dryer is our latest innovation and a condenser dryer capable of drying a full load in less than an hour, making this model the fastest condenser dryer on the market. When paired with the Speed Queen front load washer, this is the perfect professional laundry equipment for small businesses,” Vandamme said.

Ever since drycleaning machines have been in existence, the problem of distillation boil over (also known as black-over) has been a problem. Due to the addition of low temperature boilers such as water, high humidity, dosing additives and substances removed from the garments during the drycleaning process, the boiling behaviour of the solvents and the low boiler mixture can change. This results in froth and a ‘black-over’ of the distillation. This problem is particularly problematic with alternative solvents.

Böwe decided to tackle this situation and developed a new photoelectric sensor. During the distillation process, the surface of the liquid in the distillation is monitored. If there is increased bubble formation, the sensor detects this and automatically breaks the vacuum for a short time. This leads to an increase in the boiling point and a collapse of the foam head. Black-over and dirt transfer are thus prevented. This eliminates the need for annoying and expensive cleaning of the water separators and clean tanks, which leads to odour formation if poorly maintained. In addition, energy-intensive distillation of contaminated tank contents is no longer necessary which saves a lot of energy, time and cooling water. Problem solved!

Büfa develops products to remove a wide variety of stains and odour-intensive soiling, for safe disinfecting and for finishing and improving fabrics. Modern process engineering in conjunction with individual dosing equipment and methods guarantee flawless and cost-effective results.

Drycleaning is catered for by various solvents, such as perchloroethylene, hydrocarbon solvent or silicone solvent, the trademarked Sensene. Büfa was involved in the developing of Sensene over several years. This enabled the introduction of perfectly balanced textile care, says Büfa, allowing textiles to retain their colour brilliance and just smell clean (not of solvent). Valuable textiles, especially outerwear, sportswear, weatherproof clothing, duvets, protective clothing (PPE), must be cleaned and treated professionally.

Christeyns will showcase its new and groundbreaking washing concept EPIC. Water is usually the first thing that the industry thinks of when it comes to sustainability. Not only the availability of water but also the cost of wastewater disposal and the need to comply with ever strict wastewater regulations.

EPIC – Enzymatic Process Innovation by Christeyns - allows commercial laundries to meet wastewater discharge standards and reduce wastewater costs. How? By introducing biological enzymes directly into the wash process. The enzymes ensure that 50% less detergent is needed, which makes the wastewater cleaner. But there are many more advantages to the EPIC wash concept, which professional textile cleaners can discover at the Christeyns’ booth.

Choosing EPIC, also means unlocking a totally new technology, says Christeyns, because washing with enzymes requires expertise and accuracy. That is why Christeyns developed a high-tech and patented device that mixes enzymes and adds them to the washing process separately from the detergent.

During the show, visitors can experience the technology in the Christeyns ‘Expreinece Box.

Christeyns’ partners Laundry Dashboard and HydRO for laundries are also exhibiting at H3 - Stand D09.

Leading flatwork ironer manufacturer GMP offers a range of product for all purposes. At ExpoDetergo GMP will showcase the brand latest evolutions: E2 and G2.

The trait d’union between the two lines, respectively chest ironers and drying ironers, is the new SHARP control platform unveiled for the first time in October 2021 during the launch of E2.

The SHARP control platform has been extremely successful thanks to its innovative approach to the commercial equipment use and is going to be extended to the new G2 line with Q1, 2023. Its main force points are the integrated operator training and troubleshooting sections.

“Contrary to washer and dryer, an ironer is an open system, where the individual experience in operating makes a big difference in whether you obtain great results or great issues” says Rudi Giaon, GMP CEO. “If you add difficulties in finding experienced labour, or frequent turnover very typical of seasonal hospitality activities, you can obtain a problematic mix. In designing E2 and SHARP control, GMP’s challenge has been to offer an effective solution to a very felt necessity and I believe we have fully reached our goal.”

GMP staff will be delighted to introduce the details to visitors.

The Jensen-Group has something exceptional up its sleeve for all visitors to this year‘s Expo Detergo, it says. The show will mark the world première of a new generation of towel feeding robots built by its partner Inwatec. It will be feeding towels of various sizes into a jensen Butterfly towel folder at high speed, and without any human intervention. Jensen was the first company to launch a towel feeding robot in 2008. The first model has been continuously upgraded and improved, and it can’t wait to show the new Blizz to its customers. Sorting, feeding, folding and stacking of towels can be done completely hands-free, and thus highly productive at highest hygiene standards.

Jensen’s robotics section features another hands-free process: Inwatec‘s automated soil sort system incorporating robotics, an X-Ray system with AI, is now an all-in-one solution as Thor can handle both garments and flatwork in one system.

The new XR dryer will set new benchmarks in productivity with its extra airflow for a greater air exchange and up to 15% higher evaporation capacity. Laundries will be able to achieve the same results with fewer driers with bigger drum volumes and wider door openings.

A further highlight is the new MetriQ loading station. Its unique buttons-tothe- front feature enables the efficient loading of garments with back openings, such as patient gowns and scrubs. It’s the most productive and ergonomic loading station in the industry.

“We will be using EXPODetergo to unveil our latest innovations to the global public and show many other exciting developments for laundries that want to increase their productivity and ecological efficiency” confirms Matteo Gerosa, general manager of Jensen Italy.

It is a tremendous market opportunity for the industry. Optimising the usage of textiles creates an enormous additional CO2 reduction.

Intensifying of textile use = improving textile sustainability

Sustainability is a key issue in society. Professional textile care is the sustainable option, but textile services also create attractive options for an extended product lifetime and can create better circumstances for recycling. The effect of extending textile lifetime on the sustainability of textile use is immense. Very significant reductions in CO2- emissions and water consumption can be achieved by prolonging the present average lifetime of textiles in the consumer market to the technical lifetime.
