Industrial tumble dryers
What makes JLA's industrial dryers "S.A.F.E"?
Enhancing industrial dryer fire safety
JLA’s industrial tumble dryers have unique fire safety features, including S.A.F.E technology, which stands for Sensor Activated Fire Extinguishing.
This innovative system enhances fire safety and can be found in their industrial tumble dryers. Learn more about it in the video.
While domestic dryers obviously have their place, commercial tumble dryers have bigger cylinder sizes for larger loads, offer higher airflow (and faster drying times) and are built to last much longer. In fact, some of JLA’s models can be expected to reach upwards of 37,000 cycles. With this in mind, a commercial dryer is the best choice for your busy laundry room.
They are expected to last up to 10-12 years with regular use assuming it has been installed correctly, well maintained and serviced regularly. But with JLA’s unique, all-inclusive Total Care package, our nationwide engineers will resolve any errors and help to protect your investment with planned maintenance and repairs at no extra cost.
On average, you’re likely looking at 30-45 minutes, but the timing always depends on the size of the load, nature of the linen/clothing and the machine model. JLA models feature an auto-stop system, however, which ends a cycle when the load is dry – saving you time and money.
JLA’s range of dryers work well in different environments. Industrial dryers are better used in heavy duty settings, whilst commercial dryers are ideal in places like care homes, healthcare and hospitality settings.
Generally, professional tumble dryers are available in condenser, heat pump and vented tumble dryers. A condenser dryer works by collecting the moisture from the air in the dryer, then using a fan to cool it down and condense it into water, which is collected or drained away. Heat pump dryers use refrigerant to draw moisture from clothes, which is often a gentler option. A vented tumble dryer, meanwhile, heats up the air inside the dryer and uses a fan to vent moisture, leaving clothes dry.
Vented and heat pump commercial tumble dryers do need a vent to act as an exhaust for warm air and moisture. Condenser models don’t usually require one, as they remove and collect moisture in a different way.
It’s always worth reading the care label before you tumble dry a garment, but as a general rule of thumb, you should be careful with any items that don’t have the tumble dry symbol. These might include fabric shopping bags, spandex or leather items, and shoes.
