Milnor Batch Systems
- Custom made for the customer’s specific needs
- More modules give greater production
- Mentor control allows pre-determined temperature and chemical levels for each individual bath
- Top transfer increases productivity and gives better control of chemicals
- Superior cylinder design and double drum construction
Each Milnor CBW washer is custom-made for the customer’s specific needs. More modules give greater production. Water inlets and drain valves give greater flexibility. Mentor control allows pre-determined temperature and chemical levels for each individual bath.
Any module can be equipped with a steam inlet and temperature probe.
The operator puts a batch in line for loading, then enters the goods classification number into the Mentor® Control. This automatically selects the processing formula which follows the batch until it’s automatically unloaded from the dryer and delivered to its finishing destination.
Supply inlets can be placed in each module. The Mentor control dictates the amount of supplies and when, or if, they are added to the specific goods in each module during the wash cycle.
A conveyor or overhead bag system may feed the load chute.
The MultiTrac system relays each batch’s post-wash requirements to other parts of the system; extractor, shuttle, dryers and conveyors. A CRT display identifies batch location and status. Where multiple batch dryers are used, the control system prevents mixing of incompatible batches in the same wash.
Each module has a stationary shell to hold the wash bath and a rotating, perforated inner cylinder. Each module can be used for different baths. Goods proceed through the formula by traveling from module to module, via a perforated top transfer scoop. There are no stops and starts for draining and filling
Milnor’s top transfer feature assures bath integrity. Baths are truly independent, so the washing formula can work as planned. Because water is not pumped forward with each transfer, chemicals are better targeted to the proper baths. They don’t migrate uncontrollably to subsequent baths.
