Ripon, Wis. - Sept. 12, 2012 -Speed Queen, a
leading provider of commercial laundry equipment, announced today
that its tumble dryer line has been upgraded with technologies that
will help extend linen life, increase throughput, reduce energy
consumption and maximize profit.
OPL stack 30 and 45-pound tumble dryers are now available with
Over-dry Prevention Technology (OPT). The single cylinder
25-55-pound OPL tumble dryers, as well as the 50-75-pound vended
tumble dryers are now available with reversing technology.
"Speed Queen is committed to providing customers with the tools
they need to run a more profitable operation," said Dan Bowe,
National Sales Manager for Speed Queen's commercial division. "By
increasing throughput and reducing energy consumption, the upgraded
tumblers will contribute to the bottom line."
Both technologies are available through Speed Queen's Quantum™
Over-dry Prevention Technology precisely controls the level of
dryness to help sustain the integrity of premium materials,
reducing fiber loss as much as 31 percent.
Baffles are used as sensors and provide pinpoint moisture
readings throughout the entire load. When the tumbler has reached
its preset level of dryness, it shuts off automatically. This
technology helps lower linen replacement costs and eliminates
inefficient use of energy.
Reversing technology allows the dryer cylinder to alternate
directions preventing large items, such as sheets or tablecloths,
from knotting and twisting. The reverse action provides a
consistent and even dry. Store owners with commercial linen
accounts and OPL managers will increase labor and energy efficiency
because staff will no longer need to unwind laundry or run
additional dry cycles.
The new machines still contain great features that have always
made it a best-in-class machine, such as a four compartment
dispenser, automatic door lock, secure high-capacity coin vault,
protected bearings, shaft and seal, ergonomic door handle and front
service access. Additionally, every machine integrates with most
aftermarket smart card and credit card payment systems.
