In the world of industrial laundry services, speed and efficiency are vital elements required for making a profit. The third is a safe and quiet working environment that maximizes the effectiveness of the operating staff. The Ellis WHISPERDRYer was designed specifically to incorporate all three essential components in one drying system – high production, optimal use of utilities and operation as quiet as a whisper.
Offering the most efficient cycle possible, our WHISPERDRYer utilizes dampness sensing technology that is programmable based on the moisture level of items in the cylinder. The controls are easy to operate with Ellis One Touch or Intellitrol Network Control.
The cylinders themselves are available in 165, 192 and 250 cubic foot sizes to give you the perfect option for your needs and allow goods to freely tumble through the heated air. The low-RPM blower is oversized and pushes air through at lower speeds, which reduces abrasion from foreign matter and extends the life of the machine. For ease of inspection, the blower can swing out to allow for inspection.
With programmable exhaust up to 12,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM), this system evacuates moisture efficiently and quietly (70-72 decibels). For additional noise reduction and reduced maintenance, the direct drive of our WHISPERDRYer is designed without belt drives around the cylinder or a multi-sheaves compensating system. Instead, a twin friction roller drive supports the cylinder through a common drive shaft, which drives the cylinder in both directions, thus eliminating squeaks and other noises from belt slippage on reversals.
Compared to the competition, which usually works between 5,000 and 9,000 CFMs, our WHISPERDRYer offers staggering results. Tests have shown a 250 lb. load of terry towels averaging 15.23 minutes of drying time at 1910 BTUs while a 450 lb. load of terry towels averaged 21.76 minutes of drying time at 1651 BTUs.
Always keeping operator safety in mind, the 55” insulated roll up door goes over the machine, not over the operator’s head, thus no floor clearance is required to open and close the door. Plus, its large opening offers the ability to handle both shuttled and slinged goods. The unit tilts back 15% and opens in the front to receive the wet loads of laundry. It tilts down 15% to let out the dried laundry. All rotating components are guarded for added safety.
With over 100 years of Ellis’ knowledge in industrial laundry built into its design, the WHISPERDRYer takes efficiency, quietness and profitability to a whole new level.
