Commercial Washer Extractors for Healthcare Facilities

Continental’s Pro-Series commercial washer-extractors can tackle any healthcare cleaning job — and in the process — cut utility and labour expenses and dramatically improve laundry productivity.

Most nursing homes, clinics and hospitals are concerned with improving laundry production — getting more done faster! But, quality is also of the utmost importance. With Continental’s Pro-Series commercial washer-extractors, healthcare operations can properly wash a variety of items thoroughly and consistently while improving production dramatically. Sheets, towels, bed pads, blankets, personal items, mop heads and rugs, can all be cleaned using one machine that’s properly programmed. Programmability and high-speed extract are key washer capabilities for healthcare facilities. Continental’s Pro-Series washer extractors — no matter the load — fit the bill.

Pro-Series High Extract

High-performance Pro-Series Washer-Extractors produce extract speeds of up to 387-G force —double the extract of most traditional, hard-mount commercial washers. Facilities can expect to cut dry time by as much as 40 percent, as a result. High-extract significantly boosts laundry productivity and cuts gas consumption because it takes less time to complete the laundry.   Therefore facilities save markedly on labour and overtime.

Automatic Chemical Injection

Cleaning chemicals and softeners are used at the appropriate water temperature and cycle, Pro-Series offers automatic chemical injection capabilities— an essential feature for hospitals and nursing homes concerned about proper removal of body fluids and other contaminants. Auto injection eliminates the need for adding chemicals manually and reduces chemical overuse and waste. It ensures items are properly cleaned every time! Typically, an automatic chemical injection can result in significant savings in detergent costs.

A Soft-Mount Design is Key

For some facilities with little space, Pro-Series soft-mount commercial washer extractor design means the washers can be installed nearly anywhere without concrete foundations or bolts.


Of course, these commercial washers are highly programmable so facilities can wash anything from personal items to bed pads and mop heads. In use at laundries worldwide for more than 17 years, Pro-Series commercial washers feature an easy-to-understand programming system with 79 program selections, including 20 pre-programmed options and 59 user-programmable options. These high-performance commercial washer-extractors couldn’t be simpler to operate — just push a button and go!
