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
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.
