Samsung’s ‘double-bubble’ laundry: a cleaner wash, using less energy

Professional Range is ideal for sites needing to launder bulky loads

For B&Bs, care homes, sports clubs, schools and smaller hotels, laundry can be a big problem. Domestic washing machines can’t cope, commercial ones are too big and expensive, and outsourcing can be pricey and difficult to manage. That’s why Samsung developed the Professional Laundry range. It’s big enough to deal with awkward loads like king size duvets or the team’s muddy away kit, but small enough to fit in the utility room. It also has a sanitize programme that meets CQC standards.

The Samsung Professional Laundry washer, model WF431, has a 14kg capacity. Although it retails at up to 60% less than competitors’ models, it is packed with clever energy-saving and performance-enhancing technologies. In addition it is backed by a comprehensive two-year parts and labour warranty.

One of the smartest features is the digital inverter motor. Because it is direct drive it has fewer moving parts and, being brushless, it creates little noise or vibration. Compared to conventional motors, it uses 50% less energy and delivers a reliably long service life.

The washing process uses Samsung’s established Eco Bubble technology, which manages the remarkable ‘double-bubble’ benefit of improving wash results and reducing energy consumption.   It does this by using bubbles to dissolve the detergent before the wash cycle starts. These bubbles penetrate the fabric much more effectively than the standard mix of water and detergent, increasing washing efficiency significantly. Consequently, operators can achieve better results at lower wash temperatures – reducing energy consumption by as much as 70%.

The Samsung washer measures 991mm high by 686mm wide and 823mm deep, runs from a 13 amp supply and is WRAS approved. Samsung also offers a Professional Laundry dryer, model number DV431.

The typical price for the WF431 washer is around £1,299, excluding VAT. The range is available in the United Kingdom through principal distributors Francis & Co and Uropa Distribution, via a national network of dealers and laundry equipment specialists. Samsung is one of the world's largest brands. Samsung Professional Appliances distributes throughout Europe. All products are backed by a full parts and labour warranty.
