Oshkosh, Wis.— Continental Girbau Inc. (Continental) recently introduced the 80-pound capacity E-Series® Washer-Extractor to its line of soft-mount, high-performance washers engineered to catapult laundry productivity while curbing dry time, labor hours and utility consumption. The E-Series line now touts 20-, 30-, 40-, 60-, 80-, 90-, 130- and 255-pound capacity models, all of which bring highly programmable controls, superior efficiency, up to 400 G-force extract and unrivaled production per linear foot.
“The 80-pound model bridges an important capacity gap between the 60- and 90-pound models,” said Joel Jorgensen, vice president of sales. “It features a compact design and offers more production per linear foot.”
Unlike high-speed hard-mount washers, which require 18-24 inches of separation between machines for bolt-down maintenance and foundation stress requirements, E-Series softmount washers can be installed closely together, according to Jorgensen. “The new 80’s small footprint and soft-mount design allow on-premise and commercial laundries to greatly enhance throughput within a smaller area,” he said.
All E-Series Washers feature the highly flexible Inteli Control, offering 20 preprogrammed cycles and up to 79 individually modifiable cycles. Operators can program water temperature by degree, wash rotation speed and duration, water levels, bath cool-down by degree and up to six extract speeds. Additionally, the SmartLoad system automatically tells operators when the washer is loaded to 25, 50 or 100 percent capacity.
E-Series Washers slide easily into place without the need for reinforced concrete foundations, grout and bolt down – allowing for future relocation and lower installation costs. Additionally, when compared with most hard-mount washers, which generate 75-200 G-force extract, soft-mount E-Series Washers, which produce up to 400 G-force extract, remove more moisture from every load during extract – reducing dry time by up to 50 percent. In doing so, ESeries Washers improve laundry productivity and decrease natural gas and electricity usage.
Designed for green efficiency, E-Series Washers feature a sump-less design to save up to 3 gallons of water per fill. AquaFall and AquaMixer systems further curb water usage. AquaFall releases water into the load via holes in the drum lifters. As the drum turns, lifters release water from above to better penetrate fabric. With E-Series, laundry is saturated from above and below. This cuts water usage and rinse cycle times while improving wash quality. AquaMixer further improves efficiency by mixing hot and cold water before entering the drum. This achieves very precise water temperatures – offering greater control over hot water consumption.
