We’re all starved for a good equipment exposition, after so many have been cancelled this year. Now you can have some of the same experience from the comfort of your own home. No airlines to book, no hotel bills, no tired feet. Although you also miss the dinners out, drinks with friends (unless you Zoom them) and exchanging business cards. You can’t have everything.
The next Clean Show is set for June 2021. As we’re all adjusting to our new ‘normal’ and trying to get our businesses back on-track, we gave companies a chance to showcase their latest innovations. Check out what the industry currently has to offer in our Virtual Mini Show!
Editor’s Note: We gave our participants free rein to pitch their products and services as they would at a Show, without deleting the promotional statements. As always, do your research.

With the state of the economy continuing to be a question mark, many are looking at used and rebuilt equipment as a viable option to purchasing new. However, like purchasing a used vehicle, the buyer must perform the due diligence and ‘buy with confidence’.
Braun’s certified manufactured equipment is truly second to none. All Braun pre-owned equipment is proudly remanufactured with the same high-quality workmanship as our new products. Braun returns the machine to OEM specifications with Braun certified parts and a NEW equipment warranty!
Our remanufacturing process strips the machine to bare steel and rebuilds the unit to ensure that it will perform with the same level of reliability as it did when it was originally built.
Machines are completely torn down and inspected for structural issues and repaired as necessary.
All components and controls are upgraded to the latest available technology.
Braun sources and certifies all factory parts.
Municipalities mandate certifications to be current; CSA and ETL require that original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are the only ones that can recertify a machine to the latest standards, replacing all components and controls.
Braun customers also receive free equipment technical support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the life of the equipment through our service support help desk! This unique support gives Braun customers direct contact with our highly experienced team of factory-trained service technicians.
Girbau North America’s (GNA) Covid-19 Disinfection Monitoring Package (DMP) monitors and verifies that disinfection parameters are met during the wash cycle. Available as a module on GNA ExpressWash® Washers, the DMP integrates with GNA’s remote management software to show, in real-time, the evolution of machine wash cycles with details of temperature, water levels and cycle phases. Moreover, the DMP provides the option of creating custom disinfection criteria based on the time and temperature of each program – adapting to the specific needs of your hotel. In doing so, the DMP displays a summary of the rules and conditions created by the user. Hotels can then run a report to see if any program does not comply with the established parameters for disinfection. In the even that the washing cycle has not fulfilled either condition, the user is alerted with a notification.
Offering 1 year free if DMP is purchased before September 30, 2020.
Announces a new laundry textile sanitizer with lower use rates and expanded claims.
BacStop™ OPL (EPA Reg #7048-16) is a ready-to-use liquid fabric sanitizer designed for on-premises laundries and smaller machines. Used in the final rinse, BacStop™ OPL leaves behind a finish that is both self-sanitizing and bacteriostatic. Under conditions of contamination, BacStop™ OPL continually eliminates 99.9% of infectious bacteria. Unlike bleach – which stops working after textiles are removed from the wash-wheel – BacStop™ OPL remains active on textile surface, continuing to aid in the prevention of cross-contamination from both Gram Negative and Gram Positive bacteria, such as:
Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E.coli O157:H7)
Salmonella enterica (Salmonella)
Staphyfococcus aureus (Staph)
Staphyfococcus aureus – Community Associated Methicillin resistant (CA-MRSA)
Our Heat Seal Presses are still by far the best presses out there and are TUV SUD safety certified and are CSA approved. Our heat seal bar code labels come with and without stripes on the sides and work with all POS systems.
Our heat seal presses quickly and easily melt the glue on the back of bar code and text labels to permanently apply the labels to garments. The bar code labels identify the owner, permanent finishing information and track the history of the garment. This helps to eliminate lost clothing due to paper tags falling off. Together they save time, labour and money.
We are offering for this virtual show, $100 off each press and it includes all models of our heat seal presses.

We are pleased to offer the latest Unimac innovation of a true commercial stack washer/dryer format in 30-lb. and 50-lb. capacities. These units combine a washer and a dryer into a vertical platform with the rugged reliability of a 30- or 50-lb. capacity washer and the fast drying capability of a 30- or 50-lb. dryer. The stack Unimac model UST30-50 is ideal for smaller on-premises laundries with limited space but high laundry volume, or an additional revenue generator for a dry cleaning plant trying to add laundry service to their products offered. The 30-lb. stacks have powerful options including: pump or gravity drain, gas or electric heated dryer, and a 4-signal soap board. These features allow a broad spectrum of locations to be considered for installation.
Harco is also offering their hospital laundry collection system to customers that require the sanitary collection of soiled gowns and scrubs. We have scaled down the system to allow small-volume locations access to hospital level containment of soiled linen until it can be laundered. This protects the staff and customer from contact with dirty laundry. We have programs for laundries or direct to the small business owner concerned about meeting guidelines for protecting staff and customers.
Prices: Bags $40 per case; Hampers $140 per hamper.
Our latest innovation is the JENSEN/Inwatec AI (artificial intelligence) and Robotics for automated soil sorting of garments and linen items via X-ray scanning, RFID scanning, and Camera ID.
Safe handling of soiled health care items via X-ray scanning, which identifies goods with hidden sharp foreign objects such as needles, scalpels, knives, etc., and allows for those objects to be removed safely.
Identifying pens, markers, utensils, etc., in order for an operator to remove these objects prior to the wash cycle. This could potentially save thousands of laundered goods yearly from being destroyed.
Safe and accurate sorting of goods to ensure those goods are handled on the appropriate wash and dry formulas, reducing the possibility of ruined goods.
Automated sorting requires fewer team members, enabling management to place those team members elsewhere within the laundry facility.
JENSEN is on the ‘cutting-edge’ of technology. We welcome the opportunity to work with all interested parties to ensure their best possible ROI.
Our best innovation right now is our LF and LFC Series Folder/Crossfolder – Draper – Stacker.
The LF and LFC Series offer the operator incredible versatility with the ability to process virtually every category of flatwork. Many operators will remember a machine called the Master Eclipse and its reputation for versatility and reliability. The Leonard LF and LFC Series builds upon this tradition with substantial upgrades that will benefit the operator. The LF large-piece folder produces up to 3 primary and 3 cross-folds as a standard. The LFC has the same large-piece capability and up to 2 primary folds for small pieces with small-piece draping accumulation. Our Dynamic Product Length Compensation Controls automatically adjusts to the products’ size on the fly without the need for program changes. These machines provide total versatility for commercial, hospitality or health care linen suppliers. These units also can accommodate up to 3 Leonard stackers for post-folding automatic sortation.
We encourage all customers to contact us directly for seasonal as well as trade show special offers.

PARKER BOILER CO.
We have a new cell alarm system that will notify the user if their boiler is down or might freeze.
The ParkerView-Alarm (PV-A) is a simple to set up, use, and maintain cellular-based alarming system for use on boilers or other devices. The ParkerView-Alarm allows the owner or operator of the boiler or other device to be off-site and be alerted when an alarm condition is detected, cleared or when there is a power loss, or higher or low ambient temperature conditions. When an alarm condition is detected, PV-A will text up to 3 phone numbers to indicate there is a problem. If the alarm is cleared, an additional text is sent to an off-site owner or operator.
