Dear NCA, Champion Cleaners is one of the biggest and most reputed retail dry cleaners in UAE, United Arab Emirates -- www.champion-cleaners.com our website for your reference. We also started as an American franchisee 15 years back. I clean more than 15,000 pieces of highly branded garments per week. I have for many years used perc from Dow and perc from Solvay and never had any problem. Up to recently due to shortage of perc I started using a Japanese brand of perc for two months. Strange thing that after this two months all my three dry cleaning machines started having problem with severe corrosion of all the condensing coils, condenser chambers and water separators. Situation was so severe that we had to remove all remaining perc and replace them with different brand of perc about two weeks ago. Amazingly after repair of the damaged parts and since then all problems have stopped and things are back to normal. We know for fact that the water contents are not separated from this perc and we do not know why. I have also compensated thousands of dollars for damaged garments which was the result of the presence of excess water in dry cleaning cycle. We have never thought that there could be so much of difference in quality of perc. I am desperately seeking your expert opinion on this matter and what could have been wrong with this perc. Because if there was machine malfunction there should only be problem with one machine and not three, and the problem should persisted after discharging of the bad perc. I would appreciate your advice on this matter at any cost. Attached copies of damaged parts and garments for your reference. Looking forward to your immediate response. 26 THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DRYCLEANER & LAUNDERER MAY JUNE JULY 2012 "LEARNER DRIVER" As I have been teaching my son David to drive, I am particularly conscious of "L" plates and red and green "P" plates. On a recent trip to the USA I was surprised they don't have this system -- the closest I saw was a computer printed sign in the rear window of a car which warned "ROOKIE DRIVER". Brian Smith of DCCS Australia sent this great pic of Brooke Arthur (rear) and of Classic Drive In Drycleaners, Warrnambool VIC -- I bet it gave their customers a good laugh!
