Oshkosh, Wis.—Continental Girbau Inc. (Continental) recently added the new 70-pound capacity G-Flex Washer to its most advanced line of hard-mount flexible-speed washers. The GFlex line now includes 40-, 55-, and 70-pound capacity models. Superior programmability, including G-force, brings premium program and process flexibility to laundries at an affordable price point, according to Joel Jorgensen, Continental vice president of sales and customer services.
“G-Flex Washers deliver the flexibility of six programmable extract speeds, including 100, 140 and 200 G-force, at an affordable value,” said Jorgensen. “There are other washers on the market that offer flexible G-force, but they are typically more expensive, high-end machines. Now, thanks to G-Flex Washers, laundries can benefit from superior program flexibility, durability and performance at a value price.”
Thanks to programmable G-force, G-Flex Washers can also operate on lesser foundations. Now, with the introduction of the 70-pound capacity model, laundries will enjoy more throuput using less labor and energy, according to Jorgensen.
“Big washers are in demand, so it made sense to add a more robustly sized machine to the G-Flex,” he said. “The 70-pound capacity model not only offers 21 percent more capacity than the 55-pound model, it features a manageable width and fits through a standard 34.5-inch door opening. It matches up perfectly with Continental’s Pro-Series II 75/85-pound capacity drying tumbler and complementing ironing systems.”
G-Flex Washers generate extract speeds reaching 200 G-force, while most other hardmount washers only reach speeds of 75-100 G-force. In turn, G-Flex laundry loads take less time to dry, which improves laundry productivity and cuts natural gas usage and labor time.
Additionally, superior programmability means laundries can properly clean a variety of fabrics. Operators simply select a program number and press start. The highly flexible Logi Pro Control offers 25 individually modifiable programs – each with up to 11 baths, including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. Variables within each bath – including wash temperature, water levels, cycle times, rotation and G-force extract speeds – can be individually programmed for maximum efficiency given the load type.
G-Flex Washers feature durable AISI-304 stainless steel inner and outer drums. The front, side and top panels are constructed of steel and coated with Continental's unique Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. An oversized door, which allows for easy loading and unloading, is equipped with a heavy-duty, bolt-style hinge to withstand the rigors of constant use.
The new 70-pound G-Flex Washer operates on single-phase – simplifying installation. It also features a sump-less design, which saves up to three gallons of water with each fill. Its exclusive AquaFall® system further conserves water. AquaFall releases water into each load through holes in the drum lifters for better saturation and rinsing. In turn, laundries save water and water heating costs. The G-Flex AquaMixer® system mixes hot and cold water to achieve precise bath temperatures – minimizing hot water consumption.
