Considerations When Buying Automatic Carpet Washing Machine:

 The Right System= Long Life + Efficiency

It is a very important detail that the disc brushes on the machine are driven by heavy duty gearboxes with helical gear and cast iron housing. Spur gear aluminum housing gearboxes cannot turn disc brushes with sufficient power and the frequency of malfunctions is very high. Spur gear gearboxes also cause the machine to run loudly.

Again, it is not technically feasible to operate the disc brushes directly by connecting them to the reducers. A double roller hub must be used between the gear unit and the connection of the disc brushes. In a porous system, the machine runs smoothly for many years and can be applied to the desired level of pressure on the carpet.

In machines manufactured with improper manufacturing method without hub; Since the compressive power of the disc brushes is given directly to small reducer bearings, it is absolutely inevitable that gearbox failures occur within short time periods.

Industry 2.0 Manufacturing:

The profiles on the machine, especially the profiles on which moving brush carriages walk, must be of sufficient dimensions with the necessary bearing capacity. (Minimum 120x60x3 mm profile)

Bearings and all parts on the machine should be designed based on engineering and drawing, should be easy to remove and install.

Machine frame should be manufactured with high precision and there should be no miter defect. Otherwise, in poor manufacturing contractions will occur in the machine, within a short time period of irreversible contraction caused by various chronic failures will happen.

Unbalanced Rollers Very Important:

 Again, one of the most important aspects of the rotating components such as rollers and drums running on the machine should be taken with the most accurate techniques to ensure stable and unbalanced operation. (Rotary parts of the machine is not ruled; the machine can not be described as.) Otherwise, belt slippage, balancing due to excessive, uncontrolled, variable and unstable torque is applied to the engine; again, chronic and irreparable malfunctions will be inevitable.

Stable Pressing with Linear Ball Screw System:

In order to apply the optimum pressure of the brushes in carpet washing machines, in brush printing methods; 4-way stable printing system is a very important issue. Linear ball screw system is the long-lasting system that provides the most precise and optimum printing .

This system is used in lathes, which are the production of machines, that is accepted as the most robust work equipment today.

Since the two-way or four-way pneumatic systems do not receive air flow at the same time, and at the same stability, the optimum pressure on the carpet in the disc brushes cannot be achieved. Hydraulic systems cannot be used in carpet washing machines due to the negative effects of oil leakages on the carpet.

Rinsing and Damping System:

Entrepreneurs who want to start working only focus on the disc brushes of a carpet washing machine; but they unfortunately overlook the rinsing and hair removal system, which is as important as the disc brushes. This system in the rear of the machine is really important. The bi-directional roller squeegee system is the most successful method of carpet cleaning technologies to achieve the desired quality and maximum efficiency. In order for the carpet to have a vivid and bright appearance, it is necessary to clean the so-called dead hair. These hairs are also among the main causes of diseases such as allergies and asthma. In the Roll Rake  System, the brushes rotating in opposite directions work with the water flowing on them and throw objects such as pile, hair,  on the carpet by scanning them left and right. Thus the washed carpet appears bright and vivid, gaining a real cleanline.

Figure.9 : The roller rake system has two roller brushes. Brushes rotate in opposite directions for excellent cleaning, dust removing and rinsing.

Methods such as scrapers and vacuum produced without technical analysis to keep costs low do not work on the carpet. In this way, it is not possible to wash quality carpets with the machines produced with wrong manufacturing techniques.

To finalize:

All productions from frame to body, drum and roller to automation should be produced in minimum Industry 2.0 standards and required material dimensions and thicknesses should not be avoided. If chrome is not preferred due to costs then  minimum galvanized metals should be used in order to keep machine dry, open source software should be preferred. It must work without contractions, friction and unbalanced.

Turkey purchases only and can not be compensated by cost concerns in the world, chronic problem, there are hundreds of vulnerable consumers who purchase the machines. We wish you not to be an entrepreneur who lost time, effort and morale because you could not perform the desired quality carpet washing due to the wrong machine choice .
