CONTRACT CLEANING: Miele's portfolio for contract cleaners includes washing machines and dryers from its Little Giants range with a load capacity of 6 to 8kg



Wherever large volumes of mops and cleaning cloths need to be cleaned on a daily basis, Miele offers technology which rises to the challenge– washing machines and dryers with load capacities from 6 to 32 kg that suit contract cleaners' needs and the space available. All machines can be purchased outright, rented or leased, and equipped with useful accessories. Miele's stand at the CMS in Berlin, which takes place on 24-27 September, will provide an overview of the product portfolio.

Models with the Mopstar logo will be on display: from compact washing machines and dryers in the Little Giants range with load capacities of 6 to 8kg through to Benchmark models for a 20kg load. Miele also offers models with a capacity of 32kg as well as barrier washers for installation in a diaphragm wall.

Washing machines for cleaning textiles feature Miele's patented pre-spin dewatering process, which spins out coarse soil and dirty water at the start of a programme. This allows more fresh water to enter the drum in the main wash. Special programmes offering thermal and chemo-thermal disinfection are available on all model sizes. These allow mops and cleaning cloths to come out of the process ready-for-use and soaked in detergent – with a pre-set residual moisture content.

The latest generation of Little Giants is now fitted with a communication module, which connects to external dispensing systems. The quantity dispensed and the timing can be programmed with precision, ensuring for example that disinfectant is not dispensed at the start of a wash process but only when a certain temperature has been reached.

In each cycle of the larger Benchmark washing machines, the laundry load is showered with 500 litres of water, simply by circulating the 30l that enters the drum, resulting in textiles being thoroughly drenched and wetted yet treated with gentle care in the process.
