Appendix 1 Glossary - 14238_149
DAMAGE  TO  CLOTHING  DURING PRESSING Improper  padding  on  presses  is  the  major cause  of  damage  to  clothing  on  the  press  deck. The  supply  department  is  responsible  for  padding these presses. The laundry supervisor should be actively  involved  in  the  maintenance  operations to  make  sure  the  adjustment  on  these  presses meets laundry requirements. Time should always be  allowed  for  the  planned  maintenance  of  all equipment. Laundry requirements for press head pressure is discussed in Ship’s Serviceman Third Class,  NAVEDTRA  10176. Never allow the press head to remain on the clothing too long. A one-operator station consists of  two  54-inch  presses  and  one  36-inch  press.  This allows  the  operator  between  20  to  30  seconds between   lays   depending   on   the   laundryman’s ability. A laundry man should not try to operate more  than  one  operator  station  at  a  time. Clothes  that  are  properly  washed  eliminate most   chances   of   scorching   during   pressing. Improperly  washed  clothes  may  scorch  because of  chemicals  left  on  the  garments  after  extraction. The   supervisor   should   make   sure   clothes   are properly washed and extracted before delivering them  to  the  press  deck. Laundry   personnel   are   responsible   for changing  pads  and  covers  on  the  presses. Improper  padding  of  presses  can  cause  broken buttons  and  a  dull-looking  product  after  pressing. The  presses  should  be  padded  according  to  the instructions  in  Ship’s  Serviceman  Third  Class, NAVEDTRA  10176.  If  proper  padding  does  not eliminate   the   broken   button   problem,   have the   engineering   department   check   the   head adjustments.  You  can  check  the  adjustment  of  the press by placing a bed sheet in it, leaving a portion of  the  sheet  exposed.  Close  the  press,  and  then try to pull the sheet out of the press. The sheet should  not  slip  out;  it  should  remain  contained in all areas. Items   that   normally   require   dry   cleaning should  not  be  pressed  on  a  hot  head  press,  but on a dry-cleaning press with an air vacuum. If you do  not  have  a  dry-cleaning  press,  give  the  item a  light  drying  and  promptly  remove  it  from  the dryer  and  hang  it.  Usually,  these  types  of  clothing are  suitable  for  wear  without  pressing. Always  be  sure  that  there  are  no  foreign articles   in   the   clothing.   Foreign   articles   may possibly  make  their  way  through  the  receiving, washing,   and   drying   process   without   being noticed. If the clothing is pressed with gum, hard candy, and so forth, in the pockets, it will cause stains  that  may  never  be  removed.  If  stains  do occur,   use   the   stain   removal   procedures   as outlined   in   Ship’s   Serviceman   Third   Class, NAVEDTRA   10176. Remember, damage to clothing during press- ing  may  be  caused  by  the  following  conditions: Improper  adjustment  of  press  heads Unclean  press  heads Press  head  on  fabric  too  long Improper  washing  or  extraction Improper  padding  on  presses Foreign  articles  left  in  clothing 7-14
