Ripon, Wis. – Sept. 17, 2012 - Huebsch, a dynamic player in the commercial laundry equipment market, announced today that its tumble dryers have received upgrades that improve the equipment’s already industry-leading efficiency.
Over-dry Prevention Technology (OPT) is now available on the 30- and 45-pound OPL stack tumblers while reversing technology has been added to the OPL 25-55-pound and vended 50-75-pound tumblers.
These features will help laundry managers and store owners increase throughput and reduce energy costs without compromising fabric. In the vended market, reversing tumblers can command a premium price further increasing profitability.
"Huebsch is committed to the continual improvement of our products," said Gary Dixon, North American Sales Manager, Huebsch. "These tumbler technologies are the most recent way we have responded to our customers’ demand for the most reliable, durable and energy-efficient machines on the market."
Reversing technology allows the cylinder to change direction while drying, which reduces the balling or roping of large articles, such as sheets, comforters and tablecloths. This provides an even and consistent dry.
OPT is now available on all Huebsch OPL tumblers. The technology precisely monitors and controls the level of dryness throughout the load and shuts the tumbler off automatically when it has reached its pre-set level of dryness. Eliminating over drying reduces linen fiber loss by as much as 31 percent while decreasing energy and labor costs.
Reversing and OPT are available through the revolutionary Galaxy™ 600 control.
