Speed Queen Upgrades Tumble Dryers


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™ controls.

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.
