Design Efficiency

· Positive transfer process prevents roping and jamming providing the most superior transport capability on the market.

· Braun tunnels operate with an open helicoid process unlike tunnels utilizing a true archimedial screw

· Each chamber washes with a similar level of mechanical action as that of a conventional open pocket washer for exceptional wash quality

· Single drum design – eliminates cumbersome maintenance as with double-drum systems.

· Counterflow Process – goods are kept in progressively cleaner solution during each process in the wash and rinse zones. This process has been proven to provide superior processing!

· The transfer process of a mono-shell open helicoid tube design affords open pocket-like mechanical action and aids in the perpetual cleaning of the wash cylinder, enhancing system resistance to microbial/bacteria growth.
