Continental's new 60-pound capacity E-Series soft-mount washer-extractor now available

Oshkosh, Wis.—Continental Girbau Inc. (Continental) recently introduced the 60-pound capacity E-Series® Washer-Extractor to its comprehensive line of soft-mount, high-speed washers engineered to catapult laundry productivity while curbing dry time, labor hours and utility consumption. The E-Series line now features 20-, 30-, 40-, 60-, 90-, 130- and 255-pound capacity models, all of which feature highly programmable controls and up to 400 G-force extract speeds.

“Continental’s new 60-pound capacity E-Series Washer features the advanced Inteli Control, which offers superior programmability for virtually any fabric type,” said Joel Jorgensen, Continental vice president of sales and customer services. “It replaces its 55-pound capacity predecessor with several improvements, including a 14 percent boost in G-force extract, a larger basket capacity, and a design that simplifies installation and maintenance.” Engineered for more productivity per square foot, the new E-Series 60-pound capacity washer offers the same compact footprint as its 55-pound capacity predecessor.

Bringing complete control over every conditional aspect of the wash process, the washer’s Inteli Control features 20 pre-programmed 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, a SmartLoad feature automatically tells operators when the washer is loaded to 25, 50 or 100 percent capacity.

Continental’s Inteli Manager Tool (IMTx) allows quick programming of multiple machines from a remote computer – saving valuable time.

Thanks to a soft-mount design, 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, E-Series Washers, which produce up to 400 G-force extract, remove more moisture from every load – cutting resulting 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.
