ExpressDry Vended Tumblers new with reversing option

Oshkosh, Wis.--Continental Girbau recently announced that all single-pocket ExpressDry Drying Tumblers are now available with a reversing option. The reversing feature continuously unbinds and untangles laundry items – notably sheets, large blankets and comforters – throughout the course of the dry cycle. “It delivers better drying quality because items are untangled, and thus, dried more evenly without wet areas,” said Continental Vice President Joel Jorgensen. “The reversing also ensures items come out of the dryer with fewer wrinkles in less time, ensuring valuable drying capacity is available for the next paying customer.”

Single-pocket ExpressDry Dryers are available in 30-, 55- and 75-pound capacities. Now, these highly efficient dryers offer a reversing option for vended laundries – a feature that can be marketed by vended laundry owners to their customers, according to Jorgensen. “Dryers with reversing options are common at hotel and commercial laundries, but not in vended laundries,” he said. “Now, vended laundries can provide a more efficient dry with considerably less tangling and wrinkling. Your customers will value it for large, bulky loads and your staff will be more efficient with commercial accounts.”

ExpressDry Dryers offer superior programmability, durability, efficiency and ease of use. Continental’s fastest and most efficient dryers, they require fewer BTUs per load than most other dryers on the market and can cut the gas consumed to dry a load.

Engineered for constant use, ExpressDry Dryers feature rugged cylinders, dual motors and durable kick plates, cart bumpers and door bars to protect tumblers from outside impacts. The oversized doors are constructed of premium steel and secured with heavy-duty hinges. A mirror-polished stainless steel back plate on each cylinder reduces linen wear, offers unsurpassed durability and brings a bright, modern and clean look to vended laundries. Additionally, cylinder holes are oval shaped, rather than round, to prevent rounded items, such as nails and screws, from catching in the holes and causing damage to the dryer cylinder.

ExpressDry Dryers feature microprocessor controls with easy-to-use graphic displays, advanced diagnostics systems and auditing capabilities. The control is programmable for time, temperature, cool-down and more. Additionally, an automatic high-limit thermostat ensures the dryer does not surpass a set temperature – improving safety.

Contributing to ease of maintenance is a self-cleaning lint screen; oversized lint compartment that simplifies lint removal; cylinder rollers that are easily accessed by removing the lint compartment; and easily accessible dryer motors and electrical components. The ExpressDry vended dryers are compatible with coin, token or any card vending system on the market.
