With that in mind, today we'll discuss some of the features and benefits of the Hardmount Washer-Extractor by Speed Queen.

What's the difference between a Washer-Extractor and Tunnel Washer?

Commercial washers generally fall into one of two categories – washer-extractors and tunnel washers. While they are both able to process high volumes of laundry loads, there are some key differences. but there are some key differences in how they work.

Often used in small to medium-sized laundromat facilities, a washer-extractor machine operates much like a front-loading machine you'd find in your home but is often up to 30 times larger than residential machines. Washer-extractors use a spin cycle to extract water from a load of laundry but at much higher speeds.

On the other hand, tunnel washers are also known as continuous batch washers. Tunnel washers are typically more expensive and are generally only used in industries that have extremely high volumes of laundry to process.

1. Washer-Extractors are Energy Efficient

Offered in various sizes, Speed Queen's Washer-Extractors provide features that are profitable and superior. In particular, washer-extractors are quite efficient, but their efficiency is measured differently than a residential machine.

While a typical washer-extractor uses 3-4 gallons of water per pound of laundry, the more efficient machines require only 2.5 gallons of water per pound. Some washer-extractors even have recycling features built-in that allows for the water to be reused. Less water means higher extraction speeds and lower energy bills.

If your facility processes 800 pounds of laundry per hour or less, a washer-extractor is a great choice.

2. Washer-Extractors Improve Laundry Efficiency

Speed Queen's Washer-Extractor's strong frame is designed to last longer and balance loads more efficiently as well as reduce sound and vibration levels. The advanced inverter drive system provides smooth, reliable performance that improves laundry efficiency. This is a huge improvement on the old-school front loading or even side loading washing machines that offered no spin capability. The added spin of these washer-extractors means less dry time. In a time where people want to spend as little time as possible in public spaces, that savings is invaluable.

3. Speed Queen Washer-Extractors are Available in a Variety of Sizes
