The options for the PR-Series:

  • V – Fully automatic : This option contains the start and get a coffee option. The machine is equipped with sensors in every point so as to the fabrics are getting rolled up and washed automatically. Also the winding up happens automatically and stops as soon as the fabric is up. This option offers a maximum of comfortability.
  • H-Semi-automatic: The semi-automatic option does not imply secure sensors  This machine rolls up automatically but you need to get the fabric in the washing position by hand. Afterwards it goes on automatically till drying. You set the maschine to the deposit position and wind up the fabric
  • G-Drying: This option is chosen by almost all of our customers. The fabric is going to be dried by a air duct automatically after the washing. The blowers achieve a high output and ensures a dry fabric. Merely the keder can only get dried with our drying machine (TA).
  • E-Endless: The endless option is for fabrics with special lengh. It assures a smooth process for fabrics from 50 meters length. Furthermore you can save time because the fabric gets delivered after washing and it is possible to start winding the new dirty fabric while the clean one is getting winded up (folding option). It is possible to clean fabrics up to 100 meters length.
  • W-Warm water cleaning: The warm water cleaning supports the cleaning of persistent dirt. The water gets heated up to 50 degrees and gets sprayed on the fabric automatically with the spraying bar.
  • P-Barrel pump for wax: The barrel pump chooses the right amount of wax to put on the fabric after the washing process. That causes a shine on the surface which is covered by a protection layer.
  • A-Top roller cleaning: The top roller cleaning is a developement of SKP GmbH caused by appeared problems. By reason that the top rollers get wet while winding the still watery fabrics, the water drops down on the dried fabric during the winding up. The top roller cleaning prevent the dropping of dirty water onto the clean and dry fabric.
  • F-Folding aid: The folding aid supports the folding of the fabric. After the fabric gets out of the machine dried and cleaned, it gets folded with the folding aid. The speed is adjustable with a foot pedal.
  • S-Dirt tub for loading area: The dirt tub is a tub in front of the machine which is filled with water and detergent. The fabric gets soaked before the washing process so it is easier to wash the fabric. The SKP GmbH advises the tub only limited cause it causes a bigger water consumption.
