The slim design of Speed Queen's groundbreaking new 55-pound
drying tumbler will be a welcomed trait for laundries with space
concerns. But its compact size is only part of the story.
Laundry managers will appreciate that Speed Queen built the
tumbler to fit through a standard 36-inch doorway - unlike most
drying tumblers of similar capacities. In addition to fitting
through a standard opening, the tumbler is a foot shorter than its
50-pound counterpart. Its design maximizes cylinder capacity, while
not wasting any cabinet space.
Perhaps the most impressive feature for on-premises laundry
managers is the tumbler's performance. In-house testing has shown
it outperforms full-size 50-pound tumblers both in speed and energy
Its efficiency is due to an axial airflow pattern, which ensures
all heated air is used in drying the load. The results are superior
energy efficiency and faster drying times.
