Speed Queen Launches Newly Redesigned Washer-Extractors


Ripon, Wis. - July 23, 2012 - Speed Queen, a 100-year-old iconic commercial laundry brand known for its reliable and durable equipment, launched its newly redesigned hardmount washer-extractors, available to the industry beginning today.

Speed Queen has built a legacy on providing equipment that stands up to any commercial laundry challenge. The brand's commitment to quality and customers is unmatched, and is the driving force behind its unyielding determination to deliver the best products available to the vended laundry industry today.

"Speed Queen is passionate about the consistently powerful performance of its machines, and vended laundry owners have come to rely on the practical ingenuity of features designed to make their lives simpler, more productive and more profitable," said Dan Bowe, Speed Queen's National Sales Manager. "We will continue to invest in our products to optimize our customers' success and ensure that every day, every cycle, Speed Queen performs."

The totally redesigned line of Speed Queen hardmount washer-extractors offer ultimate efficiency to help reduce operating expenses and increase profits. The new machines use 33 percent less electrical energy, and 11 percent less water on average than previous models, which is enabled by Speed Queen's proprietary advanced inverter technology and innovative cylinder and sump system design.

New technology allows for extraction options up to 200 G-Force for customers looking to maximize water extraction in their vended laundry. Higher extraction speeds lead to shorter dry times and lower dryer energy costs. To further increase efficiency, the new products offer a cylinder design that provides the industry's lowest water consumption by minimizing 'non-wash' water with smaller sumps.

The hardmount washer-extractors also come equipped with the industry's one-of-a-kind patented Water Guardian technology, which detects drain and fill valves leaks. This offers owners peace of mind and best-in-class machine performance.

Easy-to-use Speed Queen Quantum™ controls come standard on the washer-extractors to further help reduce costs and increase profits with options including maintenance reminders and cycle modifiers. Quantum also allows laundry owners to manage their laundry from anywhere in the world as long as they have Internet access.

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.

Speed Queen's exclusive focus on laundry has allowed the brand to create an unparalleled product development process designed to produce the most durable and reliable commercial equipment on the market. The new washer-extractors were developed using Speed Queen's Five-Stage Product Development Process. This rigorous process includes finite element analysis, component testing, life and load testing, field testing, and world-class manufacturing and quality control. These stages subject every design and component to extreme testing virtually, in a state-of-the-art test lab environment, and real-life field applications.

The redesigned washer-extractors are available in the following models: SC*020, SC*030, SC*040, SC*060 and SC*080.
