Hinged Chest: The True Flexible Steam Chest
The biggest challenge for a steam heated flexible chest is steam pressure. High steam pressure will distort thin chests.
This is why Lapauw uses the hinged chest for the steam heated ironer.
By using a hinge, we can use 2 separate parts of sufficient thickness to withstand the tremendous forces that exist with the steam pressures that are commonly used, while the hinge assures optimal flexibility.
100% Carbon Steel Prevents 'Cold spots' in The Chest
Lapauw is the only ironer manufacturer that manufacturers his chests fully in high grade carbon steel.
With a heat conduction factor 4 times higher than stainless steel, a carbon steel chest propagates heat much faster. By using only carbon steel for its chests, Lapauw assures optimal heat distribution over the full ironing surface, preventing cold spots.
Hydraulics Guarantee A Consistent Ironing Quality
Lapauw uses hydraulics to raise the chest. Unlike pneumatic systems, the hydraulic system is independent from external sources.
The smaller hydraulic cylinders are mounted directly on the chest, on equal distances, assuring an uniform distribution of the ironing pressure.
Maximum Moisture Removal
The bridge between the rolls on the 2-roll and 3-roll ironers is steam heated. This provides additional evaporation power to your ironer.
Lapauw Individual Springs: Designed for Speed
The thick, stitched padding is firmly held in place by the individual springs, assuring it does not shift of get damaged when the ironer runs at high speed.
With the Lapauw individual spring and stitched padding, the Lapauw ironer is prepared for the speeds of tomorrow.
Controlling The Total Cost of Owner Ship
The Lapauw ironer is designed with the total cost of ownership in mind : from the of-the-shelve components to systems, like the propeller shaft, that minimize installation and maintenance costs."
