With projected costs of $50.00 per barrel of oil or $10.00 per therm for natural gas, it is an absolute necessity for laundries to implement thermal energy conservation.

Tunnel washers began production in the mid 1970's. Initially, they were designed as a tube where the linen was fed in a rope-like fashion. Linen passed through several treatment baths accomplishing the wash process. Water was fed in a counter flow arrangement to the linen and chemicals were added through a hollow tube with a cup on the dip end.
NEWARK, Del. -- Faced with a five-year state-wide drought as well as sky-rocketing utility costs, the University of Delaware has taken a proactive stance in energy conservation.
With 55 new retrofitted laundry rooms, the University is spearheading a conservation effort which puts them in a position to save 3.5 million gallons of water per year and 769,000 kilowatts of electricity per year - enough energy to light every household in Newark for three weeks.
