Dry Cleaning and Electrical Contacts

Everyone enjoys a freshly laundered shirt. But few of us give much thought to what goes into producing it. We simply drop it off and pick it up. But behind the counter at your local dry cleaner you’ll find many motor controls.

From the dry cleaning machines and conveyors, to the steam boilers and pressing equipment, you’ll find electrical contacts opening and closing to run the motors and providing emergency cut-offs. Dry cleaning machines from Firbimatic and Western Automation utilize motor control equipment. So do the Fulton, Williams and Davis steam boilers pump systems. Even the White conveyor system, that brings your finished clothes to you, utilizes electrical contacts for its motor controls - to start, stop, and reverse the flow of clothing.

Major manufacturers use leading OEM electrical contacts

As with most industrial equipment, cleaning appliances and systems tend to use standard electrical components. You’ll find electrical contacts from ABB, General Electric, Mitsubishi and others in this machinery.

Whether you’re a dry cleaning chain, an independent operator, or a dry cleaning repair service company, keeping the equipment running “cleanly” is important to the bottom line. Customers won’t tolerate malfunctioning equipment or delays, so regular maintenance and repair is important. Fortunately, Repco stocks affordable replacement electrical contacts for 27 leading OEMs, spanning hundreds of current and discontinued series for the electrical wholesale and repair markets.
