Girbau’s latest GS7 Genius washers and ED dryers feature a host of energy saving innovations that lower hotel laundry operating costs and improving sustainability.
The new Internet-enabled Genius washers feature a robust chassis design, high levels of water extraction and a 10-inch colour user interface. Their sustained high spin speeds and a 450G extraction force (the highest available from any manufacturer) reduce drying time by at least 10% and drying energy consumption by up to 30%.
Genius washers also reduce energy consumption by up to 15%. Girbau’s tests on the Genius GS7018 found that it used 2.5 kWh for a full 18kg load cycle, compared to 3.5kWh for a comparable washer from a leading competitor. For a typical machine completing eight cycles per day, that’s a saving of £1,460 a year, based on an electricity price of 50p per kWh.
Six models are available with capacities from 9 to 32kg. All come with Girbau’s Sapphire cloud-based management system that allows users to completely monitor, manage and configure a laundry, giving greater control for energy efficient operation.
Girbau’s ED series dryers ensure all items are dried safely, uniformly and cost-effectively. The highly reliable and accurate built-in humidity control system automatically senses when clothes are dry and activates the cool down process, maximising energy efficiency and assuring textile care.
The ED dryer’s Transflow technology uses a combination of radial and axial airflow for maximum energy efficiency, reduced cycle times and lower operating costs. Cabinet insulation and a double-glazed door further optimise energy efficiency by preventing heat from escaping from the dryer.
Comparing Girbau’s ED260 with its previous generation GU030 dryer, hospitality users are typically seeing a saving of between £2 and £3 in gas use for each full day of operation.
