Smart, green and economical

Line 5000’s washer extractors and tumble dryers all combine technology with green thinking and cost reducing features . They exemplify Electrolux Professional’s commitment to continued sustainability and are made to be 95% recyclable. Energy-efficient, their durable, robust construction and high technology manufacturing are built to respect the environment at every point of production and usage.

Line 5000 offers real benefits and improvements in three crucial areas for professional clients: durability , enhanced economy and flexibility .

Durability : Line 5000 washers and dryers are built to last longer . Their heavy-duty components need less maintenance and are optimized for all kinds of operations and environments.

With its Power Balance for washer extractors, Electrolux Professional’s revolutionary unbalance detection system ensures Line 5000 washers have optimum stability. This means quieter, faster operations, better water extraction and lower drying costs.

Enhanced economy : Line 5000’s unique, new efficiency means using less water and energy for wash and dry cycles . But while Line 5000 helps lower operational costs and cut the environmental footprint, it has not compromised on quality.

The Automatic Saving System for washers adjusts the water level to the weight of the laundry, meaning up to 50% in water savings for half load, as well as energy savings due to less water used to heat. The Residual Moisture Control measures the exact moisture content throughout the process, ensuring energy savings due to shorter drying time. And the Efficient Dosing System is an easy-to-use, automatic calculation of the appropriate detergent amount, meaning that the laundry has the highest quality results while still protecting your skin during usage. Ideally combined with Automatic Saving System, Efficient Dosing System can mean 50% savings in running costs.

Maximum flexibility: Ergonomics, performance, safety and labour effectiveness are key factors in Electrolux designs. Line 5000’s user-friendly new Compass Pro® interfaces are intuitive, intelligent as well as easy to use, and available in 18 languages. Compass Pro® is the intelligence inside Line 5000 that enables Electrolux to provide customized solutions for every kind of laundry business, offering up to 55 programs, of which 15 are programmable. It combines with the Certus Management™ Information System (CMIS), which is a highly valued process monitoring system allowing users to control and document all operations to achieve ultimate hygiene and cleanliness. The Compass Pro® in t erface also features a USB port to facilitate installation of the latest software updates.

More flexibility is provided with Triangle Technology , guarantees the best washing and drying results for all types of textiles, depending on customer needs. Triangle Technology offers cost savings for medium soiled garments, faster time cycles for lightly soiled garments and top results for tough stains.

Other user-friendly features include Braille buttons, voice guidance to guide the entire washing and drying process, and multi-language selections.

As for the sizing, the Line 5000 range contains washer extractor models starting at a drum volume of 53 litres and going up to 350 litres, while the tumble dryer drum volumes range from 130 to 675 litres.
