High Quality Results without Dryer Conditioning
Like Continental Heated-Roll Flatwork Ironers, Pro-Series Heated-Chest Ironers enable one-pass ironing without dryer conditioning when paired with Continental E-Series High-Performance Washer-Extractors. The ironer's cylinder is perforated throughout for maximum suction and moisture exhaust. A heavy-duty spring system provides uniform pressure against the ironing bed while an extractor fan at the cylinder shaft effectively pulls evaporated moisture away from fabric. As a result, linens can be fed directly from the washer to the ironer, saving valuable labor and energy!
Rigid-Chest Design Provides Unmatched Results
Pro-Series Heated-Chest Commercial Ironers are engineered with a rigid chest for unmatched ironing results. The rigid chest features a polished steel ironing bed and large heating passages surrounding the ironing surface. The large size of the heating passages allow a more consistent flow of heated thermal oil or steam than flexible and semi-rigid chest ironers. The result is a more uniform ironing temperature, greater heat energy transfer to the linen and ultimately a superior ironing finish.
Built-In Gas-Heated Models Provide Superior Efficiency and Performance
Pro-Series gas-heated models are an enviable 90 percent efficient thanks to four oil circuits which double the heating surface of the boiler. The gas boiler is located at the rear of the ironer—enabling a larger boiler and flame and creating greater heat output using less energy than models with boilers underneath the ironer.
Pro-Series Heated-Chest Ironers are built for longevity, as is evident in Continental's industry best 5/3 year limited warranty. The ironer's frame is constructed of high-quality carbon steel with fiberglass endplates. An easy-to-clean and durable epoxy finish on the cabinet further protects the ironer from moisture and resulting corrosion. The ironing bed is constructed of thick (14mm) steel plates that resist deformity and subsequent finishing inconsistencies due to high-level pressure and temperature.
The Difference is in the Control
All Continental Flatwork Ironers offer easy-to-operate controls that provide efficient performance and flexibility. The Microprocessor Control on Pro-Series Ironers features the Continental's patented AutoSpeed® System. This programmable control option automatically modifies cylinder speed based on variations in temperature. The AutoSpeed process eliminates high- and low-temperature fluctuations, assuring constant ironing temperatures and the highest quality finishing results in just one pass. Plus, Autospeed helps eliminate the variable of human error – incorrect temperature and speed settings – that can result in damage to linens. When manual drying is needed, the simple touch of a button turns this feature off.
The Quick Check™ Service package, standard on all Continental Pro-Series Commercial Ironers, saves laundries time and money. The feature actually helps users diagnose maintenance and service needs from the microprocessor control pad. Electrical components, temperature actuators, mechanical functions and safety checks can be performed with a simple touch of the button.
Quiet, Cool, Safe Operation
Providing a clean, cool and quiet working environment is important. Pro-Series Commercial Ironers help reduce unwanted laundry room noise and heat because exhaust motors, fans, and vents are located away from operators, to the rear of the units. And, during the ironing process, residual lint is pulled through a manifold and filtered through a heavy-duty screen. This process prevents lint from re-depositing on linens or escaping into the laundry room where it can clog vent ducts and pollute the air.
Designed to be operator friendly and safe to use, Pro-Series Ironers features critical safety features to prevent accidents. Safeguards include an emergency stop button, electrical circuit safeguards, an independent switch disconnect, a pressure-sensitive hand guard at the ironer feeding area and fixed safety guards.
Committed to Quality & the Environment
Pro-Series Flatwork Ironers are produced in an ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified manufacturing facility. Therefore, you are assured of the most advanced quality and safety standards, including ETL certification. In addition, Pro-Series Ironers are constructed using many recyclable materials.
