Just A Lot Of Hot Air?

Contract cleaning is no easy task, and there are many factors which can affect productivity. The heavy reliance on equipment means that cleaners must maintain them every day if hygiene levels and efficiency are to remain a high standard and a good quality for the customer.

Miele Professional has introduced a new generation of washer- extractors, the MopStar range, specifically aimed at contract cleaners and other businesses in the cleaning industry, developed with the challenges of the workplace in mind. Alongside this, the Heatpump dryer, model number PT5137WP, is the perfect match for any of the washer-extractors in the MopStar range. It’s a compact machine that doesn’t require a vent or an outside wall, so it can be placed anywhere whilst taking up minimal space.

Heat-pump dryers operate on the principle of two separate circuits: one for process air and the other for coolant. Process air is heated and absorbs moisture from the laundry load, while the evaporator causes the moisture contained in the air to condense. The condensate is drained off and the heat contained in the process air is used to provide the second circuit, containing the coolant, with energy via a liquefier. The reheated air re-enters the drum and the cycle begins afresh.

Miele's powerful heat-pump module brings drying times for a 10kg laundry load down to only 44 minutes. This means that only 0.21kWh is required per kg of

laundry, equating to a reduction in energy consumption of 60% compared to a conventional Miele vented dryer with the same load capacity. Thanks to a low-rated load of 5.0kW, heat-pump dryers are ideal wherever the electricity supply is weak or where the power supply is capped during peak hours.

Miele Professional’s heat-pump dryer, PT5137WP, has a load capacity of 6.5kg and is leading the field in energy efficiency. Boasting not only shorter cycle times, but a significant reduction in energy consumption of up to 60%, the machine is perfectly geared towards saving on costs for businesses with a high laundry turnover, such as care homes, as well as actively contributing to protecting the environment.

A business looking to invest in any of these machines is welcome to visit Miele Professionals’ test wash centre in Abingdon, Oxford. Here, potential customers can test out all the Miele Professional machines. Les Marshall, Sales and Marketing Director at Miele Professional, commented: “It’s a guarantee for our customers – having this test wash centre on site means that our customers can try before they buy and know that when they sign on the dotted line, they have already tried the machine that they’ve ordered. We are very proud to say that the test wash centre has a 100% success rate.”

Miele Professional has introduced two sizes in the MopStar range: the MopStar 60, with a load capacity of 6.5kg, and the MopStar 130, with a load capacity of 13kg. These

machines also have easy-to-use controls, simplifying everyday routines for the user and providing multiple benefits for cleaning businesses.

These machines also have a special ‘floor pads’ programme, developed just for this market — contract cleaners can save thousands of pounds every year. Instead of having to dispose of floor pads after every use, the soiled pads can simply be reprocessed.

Like all Miele Professional washing machines, the new MopStars are also included on the Water Technology List, having successfully met the criteria to enable Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) claims. The Water Technology List, managed by AEA on behalf of Defra and HM Revenue and Customs, will help businesses save money in the short and long-term by encouraging them to invest in technologies and products that reduce water use.
