Dry cleaning machines are used for washing all types of textiles and garments. Despite the name dry cleaning, the machine uses chemical solvents or liquids (other than water) to wash clothes. Generally, a dry cleaning machine consists of a micro-computer and a variable frequency drive (VFD) to complete the cleaning process. The computer provides options to the user for light shades, dark shades, gentle wash, strong wash, normal spin, high spin, short cycle, and full cycle etc. The micro-computer is provided with an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) that provides the status of the dry cleaning machine. The VFD helps the dry cleaning machine to control the speed of cleaning, ranging from low spin to high spin. A dry cleaning machine consists of a tank, filter, and pump for the cleaning function. The pump helps to inject the chemical solvent that is used for cleaning into the respective filters. The filters in a dry cleaning machine are generally made of nylon and carbon.
