Oshkosh, Wis. — Sports Laundry Systems® (SLS) recently added a 70-pound capacity soft-mount washer (EH070) to its lineup of high-performance washer-extractors. Now SLS offers high-performance soft-mount washers in 20-, 30-, 40-, 50-, 60-, 70-, 80- and 90-pound capacities. The entire line works in concert with ozone injection and high-performance dryers to clean and disinfect athletic laundry. The high-performance EH070 is now available for installation at athletic laundries throughout North America.
Engineered to catapult athletic laundry productivity and simultaneously lower dry time, labor hours and utility consumption, the EH070 delivers highly programmable controls, unrivaled efficiency, and up to 405 G-force extract speeds.
“Depending on a facility’s laundry production needs, the EH070 matches up with SLS Dryers in 75/85- or 85/95-pound capacity categories,” said SLS National Sales Manager Steve Leib. “Offering advanced programmability, it works seamlessly with ozone injection to properly clean and disinfect athletic laundry, including helmets, pads, loops, towels and uniforms.”
Once the programs are set, operators simply select a program number and press start. Nearly every variable of the wash cycle is programmable and automated to combine water temperature and levels with the proper mix of cleaning chemicals, extract speeds and rotation action. Automatic chemical injection eliminates human error and the possibility of damage to athletic items. That way, uniforms look consistently bright and clean.
Like all SLS soft-mount washers, the new EH070 slides easily into place without need for reinforced concrete foundations, grout and bolt down — allowing for future relocation and lower installation costs. Additionally, its soft-mount design allows it to produce higher extract speeds when compared to traditional hard-mount washers. For example, the new EH070 generates up to 405 G-force extract speeds — about double that of most hard-mount washers. In doing so, it removes more moisture during extract, cuts dry time by up to 50 percent, reduces natural gas usage, and catapults laundry production.
Working to further extend uniform and towel life, a Smooth Touch system ensures laundry is delicately treated while inside the washer’s AISI-304L stainless steel drum. The Smooth Touch stamping system creates drum holes without sharp edges for gentle linen treatment and thorough water evacuation.
Durably constructed for years of constant use, all SLS flexible-speed hard-mount washers feature steel front, side and top panels coated with SLS’s Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. Oversized doors with heavy-duty hinges simplify loading and unloading, and all machine components are engineered using as few welds as possible to attain unrivaled strength.
Highly efficient, all SLS soft-mount washers feature sump-less designs, which saves up to three gallons of water per fill. Additionally, exclusive AquaFall, AquaMixer and Load Sensing systems work in concert to further reduce water, energy and natural gas usage. AquaFall releases water into each load through holes in the drum lifters for better saturation and rinsing. AquaMixer improves wash action by mixing hot and cold water to achieve precise bath temperatures, minimizing water and energy consumption. Finally, Load Sensing automatically adjusts water consumption and dosing time proportionately, depending on the program selected and weight of the load. This contributes to additional water, energy and chemical savings.
Moreover, the unique G Drive system — a management communication system between the washer inverter, motor and microprocessor — saves energy while reducing noise, vibration and component fatigue.
Sports Laundry Systems’ products are engineered for years of continued use and backed by industry-leading factory warranties. Crafted to meet the laundering needs of a wide variety of athletic facilities, Sports Laundry Systems team high performance washers with ozone disinfection to properly clean anything from loops, towels and helmets, to pads, rugs and uniforms.
