Results are based upon information provided by your company and/or your customer. They vary based on industry, competitor and demographic information generally available to the public. Some Continental equipment statistics are according to Department of Energy (DOE) testing standards reported by Intertek, an independent testing laboratory, dated February 27, 2007. (Report No. 3109575CRT-002.)
The Online Energy Analysis produces good faith estimates and projections only. The Online Energy Analysis presents hypothetical results formulated from mathematical models and based upon data, factors and economic conditions beyond our, your company's, your customer's and others control. The actual results that your company and/or your customer and others will experience may vary from these estimates and projections.
The good faith estimates and projections are based upon information that Continental cannot and does not warrant to be accurate and correct. The Online Energy Analysis program specifically does not utilize information about competitor's equipment. Any information regarding competitor' equipment, Continental relies on the accuracy of information provided by you, your company and/or customer. Further, the Online Energy Analysis assumes certain facts that are not within the control of Continental, including but not limited to utility rates and the maintenance of equipment by your company and/or your customer in accordance with all applicable operating procedures, manuals and policies.
Based on the foregoing, you and/or your customer and others are cautioned that you rely upon the estimates and projections generated by the Online Energy Analysis at your own risk. To the extent that you share these estimates and projections with any third party (e.g. lenders, joint venturers, partners, applicable agencies, etc.), you and/or your customer shall also provide this disclaimer to any such third party.
PLEASE REVIEW THE ESTIMATES AND PROJECTIONS WITH YOUR CUSTOMER AND YOUR RESPECTIVE ADVISORS AND ENGINEERS BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE PROJECT.
NOTE: No sales tax is included in this analysis(s). The projections and recommendations presented here are estimates based on data summarized in this proposal. If you feel that you now have more appropriate data, please contact your distributor as soon as possible. The laundry guideline given to you today is based on the information provided by your company and is contingent on various factors, including but not limited to the equipment recommended being used as called for in the Manufacturer's Operating Manuals; maintenance of said equipment in accordance with the Manufacturer's requirements set forth; labor rates and utility rates, if applicable, remain at the rates supplied by you, or as we see fit; supplies and products being processed. Due to the many variables involved in each part of the operation, the figures shown on these pages are intended as an estimate only.
- Total water usage is based on factory testing results & Intertek, an independent testing laboratory. The formula used by Intertek is: WCF x cubic foot of cylinder.
- Total water usage is based on 1 wash and 2 rinses (hot cycle).
- Hot water consumption is based on 20% of total water usage.
- Temperature rise for hot water is 65 degrees Fahrenheit (F) 45 degrees to 110 degrees.
- 1 BTU is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 lb of water 1 degree Fahreneheit (F)
- 1 gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs
- 1 therm of energy is equal to 100,000 BTU.
- Moisture retention for all L-Series models is based on
- Moisture retention for E-Series, M-Series and H-Series models is based on
- Dryer performance is based on 1936.9 BTU consumed per pound of water removed.
- Dryer natural gas consumption and water removal rate is an average based on the btu/lb of water removed for 30 stack dryer (1838) and lb. of water removed/min (.76) and the btu/lb of water removed for 80lb dryer (2350) and lb of water removed/min (1.5).
- Dryer electrical consumption is based on 0.19 kw consumed per hour of operation. (Assuming 1 pocket in a 30lb. stack dryer is being used.)
