Considering the initial investment variance between domestic and commercial / industrial equipment, we believe it important to communicate these long term performance variances and educate customers towards making the best possible investment for their application. Industrial equipment is built with the following points in mind:
- Commercial equipment has a designed life of 10'000 Cycles = 6 cycles per day for 5 years
- Industrial equipment has a designed life of 30,000 Cycles = 8 cycles per day for 10 years
- All equipment is designed for quick repairs & affordable long term parts pricing
- Tunnels are considered heavy industrial and in the right conditions, have a designed life of +120’000 hours = 16 hours / 2 shifts per day for 20 years.
- Programs are designed for quick cycle times
- Industrial washers come standard with correctly dimensioned 3 phase heating = fast heating of water
- Commercial & Industrial dryers are designed to process full towel loads in 30 to 45 minutes
- Tunnel dryers are designed to process a full load of towels in 15 minutes.
- Tunnel washers are designed to process 500 to 1000 kg per hour, that’s 4 to 8 tons per 8 hour shift.
- Low water usage
- Low chemical usage
- Low energy usage
- Tunnels use up to 4 to 5 times less water compared to normal front washers, 2.5 vs 10 litres per kg (low soiling) or 4 vs 20 litres per kg (medium to high soiling)
- With programmable controls & custom programs per requirement, you achieve better results
- Washers are liquid dosing pump ready = more control = best in class results & proper rinsing
- Dryers are designed to minimise cycle times = longer linen / towel / garment life
Our goal at MEGA is to provide the best possible products for each application and industry leading after sales support, we hope to build a lifelong partnership with our customers and see success in their businesses. This is also the reason why our focus is on selling only commercial and industrial equipment which provide outstanding results and an undeniable advantage over domestic appliances.
