Is the laundry machine capacity based on dry weight or wet weight? What is the recommended capacity for a machine to run at? Suppose a washing machine is of 60kg capacity, hard mount, what weight should we load towel into it? Similarly, in 50kg capacity dryer, how much towel should be loaded? These are probably a few questions that every laundry manager asks while operating the laundry machine. Kiran Raj Singh, Laundry Manager, Shangri-la’s - Eros Hotel, New Delhi raised the question on LinkedIn. The excerpts of the discussion will be featured in two parts. In this part, we will focus on calculating the capacity of the Washer and Dryer.
