The most recommended operation for laundering and storage are simply common-sense hygienic practices. Gloves and other protective apparel should be worn by the laundry personnel while sorting soiled or contaminated linen. This linen should be handled as little as possible and immediately bagged or placed in containers at the location it was used, rather than sorted through in the washroom.
Grossly contaminated linen is often washed at temperatures of at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit, with 50-150ppm of chlorine bleach to remove significant quantities of microorganisms. Satisfactory reduction of microbial contamination can be achieved at water temperatures lower than 160°F if laundry chemicals suitable for low-temperature washing are used at proper concentrations. All instructions from the manufacturers of the machine or chemical company should be followed.

If you have answered YES to any of the questions above, you are ready for the Barrier Washer Concept. This approach offers a physical separation between the dirty and clean linen.
Hospitals and other Health Care environments are specifically prone to "Hospital Acquired Infections," and the threats are ever-increasing. Common laundry practices are threatened by HAI's. It is time for these Health Care Facilities to take preventative action against the spread of MRSA and other microbiological contamination in their laundry process. With the Barrier Washer, you will considerably reduce the risk of cross-contamination, by separating the loading and unloading sides of the machine. The Barrier Washer is built into a physical wall that separates the two sides into rooms. This ensures proper sanitation by avoiding contact with the clean laundry and the contaminated laundry.
It's design and engineering results in unmatched reliability, and the high-efficiency features still provide you with utility savings of up to 30%.
