Sponsored: Electrolux Professional launches 'efficient, cost effective laundry equipment'

27 June 2013

Electrolux Professional has announced the global launch of its Line 5000 series washer extractors and tumble dryers, designed to meet the needs of the FM sector. The Line 5000 generation is, the company says, another milestone in its 'comprehensive range of laundry solutions'

The new Line 5000 range has been shaped with contributions from users and experts in the professional laundry field, whose insights and know-how helped drive improvements in product mechanics, ergonomics and design. Special attention has been given to the particular challenges faced by professionals: regions with extreme climates, high temperatures or humidity; locations with unstable power supplies; and even areas affected by rodent populations.

“Our close association with professionals has helped shape our design, ensuring it matches real user needs,” says Esther Staskiewicz, head of marketing at Electrolux Professional (Business Unit Laundry Systems). “We have developed innovations that ensure the new Line 5000 range offers the lowest cost per wash, an unrivalled reliability, durability, and flexibility to meet customer needs. This new generation of built-to-last equipment will not only provide best linen quality and control but will make work and life easier, and deliver savings over time.”

Time is of the essence in FM laundry when it comes to processing cleaning materials such as mops and cloths, but also company workwear. Line 5000 applies Electrolux’s leading expertise in cleaning microfibre materials, helping set the highest hygiene standards possible while keeping costs and downtime to a minimum. Tailored programmes remove bacteria, dirt and stains efficiently during the laundry process, ensuring the freshest, cleanest mops and cloths.

That includes the best-in-class washing and drying results, featuring bespoke programmes and processes customised for microfibre mops and cloths; reduced costs due to extended workwear lifetimes; and time savings thanks to maximum dewatering and faster drying processes.

Line 5000’s washer extractors and tumble dryers all combine technology with green thinking and cost reducing features. They exemplify Electrolux Professional’s commitment to continued sustainability and are made to be 95% recyclable. Energy-efficient, their durable, robust construction and high technology manufacturing are built to respect the environment at every point of production and usage.

Line 5000 offers real benefits and improvements in three crucial areas for professional clients: durability, enhanced economy, and flexibility.

Durability: Line 5000 washers and dryers are built to last longer. Their heavy-duty components need less maintenance and are optimized for all kinds of operations and environments.

A brand new feature for washer extractors is Power Balance, Electrolux Professional’s revolutionary unbalance detection system. Power Balance allows the wash cycles to have the maximum amount of dewatering by adjusting the G force throughout the entire extraction. This means optimum stability, quieter, faster operations, better water extraction, therefore lower drying costs and of course a better balanced drum means less wear and tear on the machine, pro longing its lifetime.

Enhanced economy: Line 5000’s unique, new efficiency means using less water and energy for wash and dry cycles. But while Line 5000 helps lower operational costs and cut the environmental footprint, it has not compromised on quality.

So how does it work? The Automatic Saving System for washers adjusts the water level to the weight of the laundry, meaning up to 50% in water savings for half load, as well as energy savings due to less water to heat. The Residual Moisture control for dryers measures the exact moisture content throughout the process, ensuring energy savings due to shorter drying time. And the Efficient Dosing System, an easy-to-use, automatic calculation of the appropriate detergent amount, means that your laundry will have the highest quality results while still protecting your skin during usage. Ideally combined with Automatic Saving System, Efficient Dosing System can add up to 50% savings in running costs.

Line 5000’s tumble dryers have been designed with new door handles, magnetic locks and a new range of horizontal lint filters, making it one of the easiest and the only horizontal filter solution available in the market today. And with an increased G factor, king size lifter and reversing drum, as well as the Residual Moisture feature, Electrolux quite simply is unique!

Maximum flexibility: Ergonomics, performance, safety and labour effectiveness are key factors in Electrolux designs. Line 5000’s user-friendly new Compass Pro® interfaces are intuitive, intelligent as well as easy to use, and available in 18 languages. Compass Pro® is the intelligence inside Line 5000 that enables Electrolux to provide customized solutions for every kind or laundry business, offering up to 55 programs, of which 15 are programmable. It combines with the Certus Management™ Information System (CMIS) is a highly valued process monitoring system allowing users to control and document all operations. The Compass Pro® interface also features a USB port to make software updates easier.

Other user-friendly features include Braille buttons, voice guidance to guide the entire washing and drying process, and multi-language selections.

Another benefit to save users time and reduce strain is the Evolution Barrier Washer Range. Built to maximise ergonomics, performance, safety and labour effectiveness, the Evolution range meets the highest hygiene standards with guaranteed linen safety and ultimate control of laundry management. It includes the Automatic Inner Drum Positioning for Barrier Washers, which ensures that before opening the door, the inner drum is always in correct place for loading or unloading.

As for the sizing, the Line 5000 range contains washer extractor models starting at a weight capacity of 6 kg/13 lb and going up to 60 kg/135 lb, while the tumble dryer capacities range from 13 kg/30 lb to 37.5 kg/82.7 lb.
