Oshkosh, Wis.—Continental Girbau Inc. recently released the highly programmable Logi Pro Control, now available on the 20-pound capacity E-Series Washers and the complete line-up of M-Series Washer-Extractors. The new Logi Pro Control offers up to 25 individually modifiable programs – each with up to 11 baths, including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse phases. The new Control not only offers high-level programmability, it delivers unique advantages and flexibility to laundries at correctional facilities, vet clinics, fire departments, spas, healthcare facilities, and hotels, according to Joel Jorgensen, Continental vice president of sales and customer services.
“The Logi Pro delivers superior control over the wash process,” said Jorgensen. “It’s designed to improve productivity and efficiency at a wide array of on-premise laundries. The Logi Pro offers precise control over wash variables to ensure optimum efficiency and results. Moreover, unique features of the Logi Pro Control give users unmatched flexibility.”
The new Logi Pro features up to six programmable water levels; a delayed start and rinse option; overnight soak; cycle lockout; variable wash action; programmable extract speeds, including zero rotation; temperature controlled fill up to 194 degrees; and timed chemical dosing by the second. Additionally, the Logi Pro Control incorporates an all new water and chemical adjustment feature. The user simply selects the size of the load – ¼ load, ½ load, ¾ load or full load. The control will automatically adjust the amount of water and chemicals according to the selected load size – a feature that saves valuable water and chemicals!
Also key to laundry productivity are the Rinse Hold and Delay Start functions. Rinse Hold halts final rinse cycle, leaving the load to soak for added stain removal and to prevent wrinkles if the machine cannot be unloaded immediately. Once the attendant advances the machine, it completes the rinse cycle and final spin.
Using the Delay function allows the machine to start at a specific time of the day or night to bolster laundry productivity during hours where utilities are less costly or attendants are not present. “The washer can be programmed to start at 5 a.m., for example,” said Jorgensen. “When attendants arrive, the load will be ready for the dryer or ironer, improving laundry productivity.”
The new Logi Pro control is an option on the 20-pound capacity E-Series Washer, an Energy Star-qualified industrial machine delivering superior energy efficiency, 300 G-force extract speeds, and an easy-to-install freestanding design; as well as the M-Series hard-mount line of washer-extractors, available in 25-, 40- and 55-pound capacities.
