EDRO Introduces Side Loader Washer-Extractor
EDRO's new side loader washer-extractor is available in a split two-pocket configuration with model loading capacities of up to 230lb (105kg) and 450lb (205 kg).
Taking advantage of the large door opening, the inner cylinder doors can be positioned at a variety of angles for gravity-assisted loading and unloading. The inner cylinder door locking mechanism features effortless operating hardware, securely fastened to the cylinder with machined pistons and bushings, while the large outer door is fitted with an automatic rotary actuator and air bag sealing system. The split two-pocket cylinder offers a 180-degree drop for excellent mechanical wash action.
The machine range is equipped with a state-of-the art DynaTrol HMi touch screen control for the most specific wash programming, simplest operator interface, and full array of owner/supervisor productivity reporting. An integrated ozone control implements maximum safety and ease of use of EDRO's powerful DynOzone ozone system.
Drawing on years of experience from its DynaWash® end loading machine range, the side loading washer-extractor design incorporates EDRO's proven, dynamically tuned DynaMount suspension system. The system comprises four independent spring assemblies incorporating heavy-duty, reverse-loaded coil springs and a set of permanently sealed, tuned shock absorbers. This setup significantly reduces vibration transmission.
The washer-extractors feature an inverter with single motor variable speed drive with high slip and positioning brake system. Inverter with single motor drive technology is a tremendous advance in controlling the machine speed. The design has significantly fewer parts than conventional multiple-motor set-ups with single-speed motors, clutches and gearboxes, while delivering more speed selections and greater energy efficiency.
Paired with the HMi/PLC's programmability, multiple parameter settings allow high torque wash speeds with steep slope starts and stops and elongated slopes for even load distribution and acceleration to high extract. Inverter drive monitoring and EDRO's exclusive variable step extract sequencing result in smoother speed transitions between the agitate, distribution and acceleration phases to final high extract speed. The variable step extract's unique speed algorithm spins the machine faster and faster as more water is removed from the load. This results in less and less water weight in the load as the machine reaches its highest speeds.
High slip braking allows braking torque in excess of 100% of full load motor torque by controlling the deceleration from high speed, making the motor operate as an efficient induction generator. The advantage of this method is that no mechanical parts are required to stop the machine.
The compact side loader washer-extractor design also features:
- A side-mounted motor plate and enclosed cabinet guarding that significantly lowers the machine's profile, center of gravity and footprint
- Stainless steel basket, shaft and wash tub
- 10-port liquid supply chemical injection with manual hopper
- Dual-fill independent water piping and dual drains to decrease step times for faster, more efficient cycle times
The optional DynOzone ozone system features PowerCell ozone generating technology. This revolutionary onboard system combines a built-in, onboard ozone generator with a high-speed machine for noticeably improved washroom efficiency. DynOzone is, perhaps, the most efficient method available to produce and deliver a consistent output of ozone gas to a washer-extractor.
Other options available for the side loader washer-extractor range are:
- Water reuse ready
- Direct steam injection
- Flushing dry compartment supply injection
- DynaCop machine networking
