The new laundry trailer RLS 3000 with a washing capacity of 28 kg/h is designed to accommodate 150 to 250 people in the field (washing, spin drying, drying). The unit can be used to wash hospital linen as well. The technology of the new aseptic washing/spin drying machine and the recycling system allow reducing the water and energy consumption for more than 30 % compared to a traditional system.

The RLS 3000 is autonomous thanks to its own sound‑proof liquid cooled diesel generator in continuous operation and to the new high efficiency SERT’s multi liquid fuel burners, allowing a reduction of fuel consumption.

This unit is mounted on an off road chassis/axle. It can be transported by aircraft and by sea. Its capabilities have been proven during various missions worldwide. Four folding walkways and awnings form a weather proof shelter of 13 m², 70 cm above the ground, preventing the operators from dust, sand, mud, rain, snow etc.

The RLS 3000 is mounted on a single axle with new generation flexible suspension. The articulated drawbar with inertia braking system allows an easy adjustment of the towing height without anytool by maintaining the horizontality.

The unit can be easily handled thanks to four latching rings and two forklift pockets. The levelling of the trailer is insured by four adjustable stabilizing legs. It is checked thanks to a spirit level. Four folding side walkways and four angle stairs, 70 cm above the ground, make the working area around the laundry equipment. The metallic roof covers with PVC coated canvas is deployed thanks to an hydraulic telescopic system and ensures, after opening of the foldable awnings, a perfect shelter for the users.

Furthermore, four removable PVC coated canvas walls, with large windows and shutters, protect the working area from bad weather. The RLS 3000 can be ready to operate in approximately 30 minutes with two people.
