While it’s the goal of any dry cleaners to increase business volume and boost profits, many don’t have the luxury of space within their facility. This doesn’t mean that they can’t succeed — it simply means that they might have to do it differently. Dry-cleaning businesses are most synonymous with large washers and dryers to process clothes and garments, yet there are also a variety of compact, space-saving accessories that can be added into these operations to streamline efficiency and help make any such business more competitive. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at some of these products from Rema Dri-Vac that dry-cleaning business owners can add to their operations.

Air Vacuums

If you’re looking for a high-quality, compact product that can help take your dry-cleaning operations to a whole new level, then look no further than an air vacuum. In addition to enhancing efficiency, you’ll also notice that you’ll produce far less steam which can decrease the energy draw that is put on your boiler.

Vertical Return Systems

While return systems are offered in large horizontal tanks capable of holding up to 500 gallons, they’re also available in vertical formats that offer capacity for as little as eight gallons and takes up just 18 inches of floor space. It’s these space-saving vertical return systems that can prove to be valuable to any dry-cleaning operation’s shop floor as they can essentially be customized to any dimension you desire. This flexibility can play a huge role in helping your dry-cleaning business enhance its efficiency without adding significantly to its equipment footprint.

Burks Pumps

This product streamlines production and helps save energy and wear and tear on the boiler. Burks Pumps are great for small dry-cleaning businesses because they’re small, compact, and long-lasting. Rema Dri-Vac is an authorized Burks Pumps distributor and our associates can help outfit your operations with the right fit for your space.

Condensate Units

Moisture and condensate are a natural boiler byproduct; however, you’d be surprised by how many businesses let this resource go to waste. By purchasing a condensate unit that integrates with the rest of your equipment, you’re able to capture this moisture and put it back to work for you. It’s a close-packed accessory that can have many benefits such as reduced energy draw, less corrosion, minimal maintenance, and longer-lasting equipment.

Blow Down Tanks

A lot of the items on this list just make sense for a dry-cleaning company with limited space, and a blow down tank is no exception. These tanks also combine with the boiler to help reduce any build-up of sludge or debris that tends to accumulate in the appliance over time. This means a better operating boiler and one that works longer, too. At Rema Dri-Vac, we offer blow down tanks in various models from one horsepower to five horsepower, so you can select the one that fits within your location.

Bigger isn’t always better, nor is bigger always necessary, especially if you’re working with limited floor space in your dry-cleaning business. Contact Rema Dri-Vac today to find the right fitting equipment for your space.
