In many regions of the world, water and energy consumption are the main components of a sale. To meete these requirements, our washer-extractors (FX line) have been designed to achieve Xtremely low water and energy consumption.
Unique CASCADE™ drum
Despite the extraction of 400 g of water, the linen does not stick to the drum – which simplifies unloading.
Thanks to the CASCADE™ concept, there are more perforations in the drum over the same surface area – so water extraction is much more efficient.
The inclination of the bulges extracts even more water – so, the percentage of humidity after extraction is Xtremely low.
The CASCADE™ shape of the drum holes provides an extra mechanical action that produces an even better washing result.
The FX machines are designed to consume Xtremely little water - without reducing the washing quality. In order to achieve this, the space between drum and tub has been optimised. The heating elements are now in a ‘sink’ to protect them during the Xtremely low water consumption.
Less water in a passive space between tub and drum
Optimising the passive space between tub and drum has minimised water consumption considerably. This has been achieved thanks to a couple of Primus innovations:
- The passive space was reduced by re-positioning the temperature sensor and the heating elements.
- Also, the space between the tub and the drain valve has been reduced.
Market research regarding customer expectations for a new line of front loaders shows that design is a very important aspect. As in the household sector, industrial innovations must be accentuated by design.
Shape of the control panel - “nose”
The control panel is inclined to make the operator’s work more ergonomic. Options in the menu scroll up and down, and use - is very intuitive use for regular customers. Display shows which soap hopper compartment to use.
XControl Plus programmer with unlimited programming possibilities for laundry professionals. USB plug for fast and easy uploading of new washing programmes.
Because the diameter of the door opening is crucial for easy loading and unloading, the maximum diameter was calculated for each model. In addition, the door opens a full 180° for greater user-friendliness.
Soap hopper in the front central position
The soap hopper consists of 4 compartments, suitable for powder as well as liquid soap. Plus, for additional ease-of-use, the compartments are now ergonomically located at the front of the lid and next to each other. The compartment for the main wash is modular, so the size of the cup can be changed according to the size of the machine.
Large door opening
The maximum diameter for the door opening has been calculated for each model to make loading and unloading easy. In addition, the door opens a full 180° for greater user-friendliness.
