Zero-Impact Washer Installation
The freestanding design of E-Series allows for quick installation and same-day operation. Unlike hard-mount washers, there is no need to bolt E-Series Washers to concrete foundations. The machines are constructed using a Multi-Directional Springs (MDS) system that absorbs 95 percent of all vibrations during the wash process. This enables installation in unconventional locations, including laundry rooms with in-floor heat—all with little or no floor preparation or cost. Moreover, the freestanding design allows laundries to easily relocate E-Series Washers with zero impact on the facility.
E-Series commercial front-load washers quietly and gently reach extract speeds up to 387 G-force, about 280 G-force more than most hard-mount washers. The high-speed extraction removes more water from each load—reducing dry-time, operating time, utility consumption and labor expense. By cutting dry-time, damaging heat exposure and mechanical action are also reduced, resulting in less linen wear. Linen lasts longer and so do your dryers, which run fewer hours per day. E-Series front-load commercial washers make for a more efficient and productive laundry.
E-Series technology allows for superior wash quality using considerably less water than many competitive washers. E-Series are designed without a sump—a water containment area at the base of the washer. This saves up to 3 gallons of water with each fill when compared to machines equipped with an outer tub sump. Less water used equates to lower water-heating costs and reduced chemical usage. E-Series' AquaFall™ system further enhances efficiency. Water enters the washer drum via holes in the drum lifters. As the drum turns, lifters release water from above, enabling superior load saturation, chemical penetration and rinsing. Continental's AquaMixer™ system also improves wash action by mixing hot and cold water to achieve precise bath temperatures—minimizing hot water consumption.
Easy to Maintain
To reduce maintenance time and associated costs, all components requiring regular maintenance are easily accessible. The top panel of the washer can be quickly removed, the drain is easily accessible and the transmission system can be serviced by simply removing the rear panel of the washer. Bearings are lubricated for a lifetime, the poly-v belt needn't be tightened and bearings and seals are easily replaced without removing the washer drum. The machines also feature rounded corners to avoid operator bumps and bruises and to make the machine easier to clean.
E-Series Washers are Easy to Program
E-Series offers three programmable controls—the Logi , Logi Pro and Inteli. The controls are key to increasing on-premise laundry productivity. Why? By customizing programs according to specific load type, the control shortens the time required to process a load—boosting productivity. Fixed-timer washers don't allow this flexibility, and subsequently have longer cycle times and lower productivity. In addition, the control flexibility of E-Series provides protection from costly linen damage due to unnecessary processing and chemical damage. Despite their advanced technology, the controls couldn't be simpler to use. Once the programs are set, operators simply select a program number and push start. View our OPL Microporcessor Comparison.
Logi Control (Logic) — 30- & 40-pound models
The highly flexible Logi Control, available on EH030 and EH040 models, offers eight individually modifiable programs—each with up to nine baths including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. Variables within each bath—including wash temperature, water levels, cycle times, rotation and G-force extract speeds—can be individually programmed for maximum efficiency given the load type. E-Series Washers with Logi Controls can be programmed for automatic chemical injection—ensuring a consistent clean and eliminating fabric damage by chemical overuse.
Logi Pro Control — 20-pound model
The highly flexible Logi Pro Control offers 25 individually modifiable programs—each with up to 11 baths including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. Variables within each bath—including wash temperature, six water levels, cycle times, rotation and G-force extract speeds—can be individually programmed for maximum efficiency given the load type. E-Series Washers with Logi Pro Controls can be programmed for automatic chemical injection—ensuring a consistent clean with every wash and eliminating the possibility of chemical overuse and resulting damage to fabric.
Inteli Control (Intelligent) — 30- to 255-pound models
Continental's most flexible and dynamic control ever, the Inteli allows complete control of every conditional aspect of the wash process! Featuring an LCD display with easy-to-understand icons that indicate cycle and programming status, the control can be programmed manually or using a memory card. With 20 pre-programmed cycles and up to 79 individually modifiable cycles, users can control water temperature (by degree), wash rotation speed and duration, five on/off wash rotation combinations, multiple water levels, bath cool-down (by degree) and six programmable extract speeds. The Inteli is so flexible, it can be programmed for a wash cycle of as little as three minutes up to an extended program lasting for hours or days. An auxiliary heat option enables bath water temperatures to be increased by degree. Optional overnight soak and delayed start are also standard features.
Proven Construction, Durability & Longevity
E-Series Washers feature durable AISI-304 stainless steel inner and outer drums designed for constant use. The front, side and top panels are constructed of steel and coated with Continental's unique Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. Each component is engineered with as few welds as possible for unmatched strength. The oversized door, which allows for easy loading and unloading, is also equipped with a heavy-duty, bolt-style hinge to withstand the rigors of constant use. From the rounded cabinet corners to the oversized bearings and quality sealing system, no details were overlooked. No wonder E-Series are backed by a solid manufacturer's warranty!
