Samsung is promoting the green credentials of its new professional laundry range, distributed through Uropa, which it says offers significant energy savings in washing and drying at 60 per cent less cost than its competitors.
Samsung claims to have reduced energy use on its 240 litre capacity DV431 tumble dryer by around 25 per cent through features such as axial airflow, which directs air through the load from the back to the front, drying more efficiently than radial airflow systems. Meanwhile the RMC (residual moisture control) feature minimises drying time by turning off power as soon as the operator’s desired level of dryness is reached.
The big energy-saving feature in Samsung’s WF431 washer with its large a 110 litre drum is the ‘ecobubble’ system. This generates bubbles before the wash cycle begins, by dissolving detergent in air and water.
The detergent then penetrates fabric more quickly, evenly and deeply, which means operators can wash at lower temperatures and still achieve perfectly clean results. In tests, the machines achieved at 15°C what conventional laundry equipment achieves at 40°C.
This reduces energy consumption by 70 per cent which significantly cuts costs. The washer also uses Samsung’s brushless digital inverter motor, claimed to achieve 50 per cent more energy savings than non-inverter motors.
