New, Quick Guide to Ironer Cleaning and Waxing

Many of our veteran friends in the industry consider ironer cleaning and waxing at least as much art as science. While each ironer may require some operational artistry to squeeze every last bit of productive uptime from its rolls, we've focused on the science that applies to nearly every ironer with our new Clean 'n Wax procedures.

Tingue Lubricant

In English and Spanish, these free written procedures provide step by step instructions on –

  • when to shut down the vacuum
  • how to apply ironer wax, how much, how often
  • safely feeding the wax and cleaning cloths, safe storage
  • and more

The entire shift is covered from the start through three separate breaks for lubrication up until the start of the next shift.

Click here to get the Clean 'n Wax procedures as free pdfs.

Free Ironer Manual Library Now Online

Ironer Manual DiagramWe typically recommend keeping the flatwork ironer parts and instruction manuals attached to each ironer. But we also know these manuals like to get separated from their ironers so we've created an online library with pdf versions of actual flatwork ironer parts and instruction manuals.

So far, we have the original, illustrated parts and operator manuals for the American Laundry Machinery, Inc. Hypro, Sylon and Super Sylon models.
