Continetnal debuts 70-pound cap. G-Flex Washer-Extractor

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.

Like all G-Flex Washers, the 70-pound model generates extract speeds of up to 200 Gforce, offers a highly programmable control, and delivers superior results using less water and energy. It also brings the flexibility of six programmable extract speeds, including 100, 140 and 200 G-force, which allows G-Flex Washers to operate on lesser foundations.

“It made sense to add a more robustly sized machine to the G-Flex offering because big washers are in demand,” said Joel Jorgensen, vice president of sales and customer services. “The new 70-pound model not only offers 21 percent more capacity than the 55-pound model, it features a manageable width and fits through a standard 3-foot door opening. It matches up perfectly with Continental’s Pro-Series II 75/85-pound capacity drying tumbler.”

G-Flex Washers generate extract speeds reaching 200 G-force, while most other hardmount washers only reach speeds of 75-150 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.

The new 70-pound G-Flex Washer operates on single-phase power and plugs into a standard appliance outlet – 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.
