Secondary overhead system

Secondary overhead system

Montanari Engineering designs and builds storage system for dirty linen handling in laundries. Our systems feature fully computerised monitoring of the laundering, so the user can monitor each sack's content and each sack can be continuously traced with a simple interface, whether loaded manually or automatically.

Secondary storage system

Once the empty sack is received by the operator in charge of manually loading the linen from the lifter, he inserts data in the piece counter panel regarding the product of the sack to fill. Then, he fills it to the programmed weight. Upon reaching this threshold, the full sack is automatically conveyed to the overhead storage area by means of gravity lines where they are stacked in the line pre-established by the operator. Simultaneously, an empty sack replaces the previous one.

The unloading phase into the washing machine is carried out as follows:

  • placing a sack on standby in the machine's unloading position;
  • once the machine is ready, it automatically issues consent to open the sack, which unloads its content into the washing machine and transmits the washing and customer code to the machine's management system;
  • after unloading, the code assigned to the sack is cancelled so that the sack can be used again with a new code;
  • empty sacks are automatically compacted and stacked in a special parking line, and are automatically compacted.

All sacks are made from non-toxic material in compliance with current health laws.

When the system needs to be quickly powered - for example, with quantities reaching daily production of approximately 200/250 qt. in an 8-hour shift - semi-automatic loading of the linen must be provided.

One or more operators from different positions can be engaged to load the linen into the system. Depending on the system, loading is carried out directly in provided openings or on conveyor belts that transport the linen into sacks.

A special lifting system guarantees continuous flow of empty sacks to fill, drastically reducing empty sack replacement times with full ones.
