Oshkosh, Wis.—Continental Girbau Inc. (Continental) recently added the 60-pound capacity E-Series Washer 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.
Thanks to high extract speeds, E-Series Washers remove more water from each load — reducing dry time by up to 50 percent. In doing so, they improve laundry productivity and cut water, natural gas and electricity usage.
The new 60-pound capacity E-Series Washer replaces its 55-pound capacity predecessor with several improvements. “It offers more productivity with a 14 percent increase in G-force; larger basket capacity; simplified installation and maintenance; and the same compact footprint as its predecessor,” said Joel Jorgensen, Continental vice president of sales and customer services. “It reaches 400 G-force extract speeds, is perfectly matched with the Pro-Series II Drying Tumbler, and features the advanced Inteli Control.”
The Inteli allows complete control of every conditional aspect of the wash process, offering 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 six extract speeds. “The Inteli is so flexible, it can be programmed for a wash cycle of as little as three minutes up to an extended program lasting for hours or days,” said Jorgensen. “Optional overnight soak and delayed start are also standard features.” Additionally, a new SmartLoad feature automatically tells operators when the washer is loaded to 25, 50 or 100 percent capacity. The Inteli Manager Tool (IMTx) allows quick programming of multiple machines from a remote computer – saving valuable time.
Delivering unrivaled water efficiency, E-Series Washers feature a sump-less design. This saves up to 3 gallons of water with each fill. The washer’s 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.
