Fast, economical, environmentally friendly: Perfect laundry care with Eco Speed

Attractively priced set of Little Giants

(PresseBox) (Gütersloh, ) Washing and drying in the shortest of cycles using a minimum of water and electricity on the smallest of footprints: With the Eco Speed campaign, Miele Professional will be offering a washer-extractor and two tumble dryers from the tried-and-tested Little Giants range as a set at a particularly advantageous price to coincide with the IFA trade show due to open its doors at the beginning of September in Berlin. These machine pairs are ideally suited to meeting challenges which are beyond the reach of domestic machines. Shipments of these limited-edition campaign models will commence on October 1.

Purchasing a washer-extractor together with a vented or heat-pump dryer offers the opportunity to save money compared with the purchase of two separate standard-series models. These white campaign models feature a silver-coloured fascia which allows programmes to be selected and launched using single-knob controls. A text display provides information on the programme cycle. The 24 h delay start feature also makes these machines extremely versatile in everyday use.

Short cycles and highly efficient processes make the Eco Speed washer both fast and energy-efficient at the same time. The 60°C Cottons programme, for example, takes only 49 minutes. A flowmeter precisely controls water intake and saves on water consumption. Water levels are controlled and monitored by pressure sensors and vary to reflect load sizes.

Professional shock absorbers and electronic imbalance sensing ensure smooth running even at top spin speeds - contributing to the durability of machines. Key functional washing machine components such as the drum and suds container are made from high-quality stainless steel and are therefore permanently resistant to detergents.

The choice of dryers helps meet the most varied of customer needs: The Eco heat-pump dryer guarantees savings up around 60% and requires for example only 1.55 kWh of electricity in the 'Cottons - Normal Dry' programme with an initial moisture load of 50%. This reduces running costs and benefits the environment at the same time. The 'Speed' vented dryer on the other hand is built for speed, as the name implies: The same programme on this machine is finished in only 36 minutes, half the time required by its heat-pump counterpart.

And the patented honeycomb drum on the tumble dryers is not the only way in which these models take gentle care of fabrics: On the vented dryer, the 'Low temperature' function reduces the drum temperature whereas on the heat-pump dryer, 'Gentle tumble' reduces drum rotation and hence mechanical action by 30%.

By stacking the tumble dryer on top of the washer-extractor, it is possible to install the most modern of laundry-care centres on a footprint of only 0.5 m². All campaign models can be complemented for example by various payment systems for use in coin-op launderettes or in housing association laundries.
