Abstract
Method and apparatus for loosening soil from a mass of pervious cloth in which wash solution is applied to the rolls in the form of a plurality of reciprocable cascades to maintain the surfaces of the pervious cloth wet for a time sufficient to saturate the same; excess wash solution is continually drained from the mass of tightly wound rolls. The cloth articles are transported through a washing apparatus on a conveyor supported by a plurality of shafts extending through movable side walls of the washing apparatus and supported on bearings outside of the washing apparatus to prevent contact of the wash solution with the bearings supporting the shafts, orbital movement of the movable walls imparts similar orbital movement to the conveyor supported by the shafts to impart cycloidal movement to the cloth articles transported by the conveyor. The cloth articles are rinsed by directing a mist of gas and rinse liquid along a path normal to the articles therethrough to prevent puddles of the rinse liquid and the wash solution from forming thereon; thereafter, liquids are expressed from the articles by feeding the articles onto the side of a freely rotatable cylinder and therearound and upwardly between the cylinder and an associated roller, the cylinder and the roller are urged toward each other to press the articles therebetween to express the liquid therefrom. A dryer completes the drying of the articles.
