Press Layouts
LAUNDRY  PRESSES A  laundry  press  is  shown  in  figure  5-32.  A laundry press consists of a stationary padded buck fastened to a rigid metal frame. The head of the press  is  made  of  polished  metal  and  is  lowered by  a  system  operated  by  compressed  air.  Live steam  is  admitted  to  the  head  to  heat  it,  and the condensed steam is carried away by a drain- pipe.  A  steam  trap  prevents  live  steam  from entering  the  drainage  system.  A  table  for holding   a   garment   undergoing   pressing   is secured   to   the   frame   of   the   press   beneath the  buck. The  buck  of  a  press  is  your  worktable.  The size  and  shape  of  the  buck  may  vary  according to  the  function  for  which  it  was  designed.  The buck is padded in a specific way for satisfactory pressing. This padding must be in good condition at all times and must be changed when scorched, uneven,  or  worn.  The  amount  and  condition  of padding   affect   head   pressure,   and   you   must readjust this pressure to get the amount required for  good  pressing. TYPES  OF  LAUNDRY  PRESSES Figure  5-33  shows  the  many  presses  used afloat.   There   are   several   models   used   afloat; however,  the  operation  of  them  is  basically  the same. The following are the basic types of presses installed  aboard  ship: 1. 2. 3. 4. In Tapered  head—for  general  pressing  of wearing apparel Rectangular head—for general pressing of wearing  apparel  and  flatwork  items Triple head—for pressing shirt collars and cuffs  simultaneously Sleeve  press—for  pressing  sleeves  of  shirts addition  to  presses  you  have  your  spray guns  attached  to  press  units.  A  spray  gun  is essential  for  dampening  garments  that  are  too  dry for good pressing. Cold water is used to dampen the garments. A small amount of water sprayed on  the  last  part  of  a  garment  being  pressed  is necessary  to  compensate  for  the  moisture  lost while  the  other  parts  of  the  garment  were  pressed on  the  hot  press.
