I spent the morning today working with my friend, Nathan Yum, the owner of Care Kleen Master Dry Cleaners, in Marietta, GA. Nathan made the change from perc to DF2000 high flash hydrocarbon over the weekend when he installed a new Firbimatic Eco60Green Advance machine. The Firbimatic is a very good, user friendly machine and just like its brother Union, is one of my favorites. This machine was set up with a spin disc filter with 2 All Carbon Filters on the Dark Tank and 3 Large Format filters on the light tank. This filtration along with a 2 Bath program will keep your solvent looking good and I expect the solvent mileage will be outstanding as well!
I installed Streets Pinnacle detergent and Revive fabric finish on this machine and the cleaning was beautiful, pressing was easy and the clothes had that like new feel that you can expect when using a fabric finish. Nathan is new to hydrocarbon, but with just a little brushing up on proper spotting procedures and his 15 years experience in the industry, he looked like he was right at home with his new process choices. I know I would bring my cleaning here!!
