Standardised European washing machine

The Wascator, the latest model being FOM71 CLS, has long since established itself as the standard reference washing machine for textile laboratories. Used to determine shrinkage, dimensional stability and appearance after washing (including wrinkle free assessment), the Wascator meets fully the requirements of European standards (ISO) and of Retailers' Test Methods.

Our Wascator Expert

We’ve been selling the Electrolux Wascator for more than 25 years and have contributed a great deal to its development as a standardised washing machine for textile laboratories. Actually, we do much more than just sell the Wascator. Every machine is function-checked and programmed in our own workshop before shipment. We can install, commission and train to help you get the very best value from your purchase.
