Complete with Autospeed, the unique system which automatically adjusts the ironing speed to the moisture retention of the material. Linen can usually be taken direct from high spin washers to the ironer without drying.
MACHINES BUILT TO LAST
Girbau flatwork ironers are constructed to prolong the life of the machine. The ironer’s frame is built with high quality carbon steel primer protected by epoxy paint. The cylinder is made of heavy-duty machined steel mirror polished (Ra=0,5 mm), and finished in chrome. It is supported by oversized heavy-duty permanently lubricated bearings. The exclusive roller and strap pressure creates a quality finishing process made possible by our kinematic strap tensioning system (Pat 0528745) that ensures increased pressure and and gentle operation.
THE HIGHEST SAFETY LEVEL
State of the art design ensures conformity with worldwide safety standards. Incorporating PASSIVE SAFETY features such as: a fixed tray for item feeding, ensuring safe distancing between the operator and the machine, fixed safety guards, electrical circuit protection against external faults, etc. ACTIVE SAFETY features such as: Switch Disconnector, Emergency Stop, hand guard with double safety sensors, safety labels and computer alarm. Certified CE (Europe) and ETL (USA) for machine safety, and conforms 89/336 CEE regarding: Electromagnetic Compatibility and 90/396/CEE for gas heated versions. The installation of an extractor fan, to pull evaporated moisture away from the cylinder, and NOMEX ironing straps, prevent straps from remaining moist while ironing, thus extending the life of all feed and compression material components.
SUPERIOR FINISHING QUALITY
Girbau flatwork ironers provide the exceptional finishing quality demanded by today’s demanding consumer. Maximum evaporation capacity, quality cylinder with polished chrome finish, exclusive kinematic strap tensioning system, operator friendly exhaust, and optimum speed control with the industry exclusive Autospeed® system, guarantees the right control to ensure perfect ironing and the highest quality finished product. The superior finished results make Girbau flatwork ironers the leaders in industrial flatwork ironing applications. The most discerning client of a hotel or a restaurant can quickly recognize the use of Girbau machines through the highest quality finished table and bed linens.
EXCLUSIVE AND PATENTED SYSTEM Autospeed®
The Autospeed® System (pat.0528745), automatically adjusts the ironing speed to suit the type of material and humidity. The diagram compares the ironing temperature with or without Autospeed®. Without Autospeed® the temperature continuously fluctuates and can cause uneven drying. With the Autospeed® system, the temperature is constant, ensuring even drying for all types of material. When manual ironing is desired, the simple touch of a button turns Autospeed® off.
USER FRIENDLY FROM DAY ONE
Girbau flatwork ironers are easy to operate, thanks to simple controls and the energy-efficient and functional design. The GIRBAU electronic PROGRAMMABLE MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL (PS-32/PS-51/PSP-51 Models) provides maximum handling autonomy, consistent control and perfect adaptation to users’s specific needs; incorporating: Autospeed® system, manual mode operation, temperature and ironing speed control, cool-down cycle, process and adjustment advisories, diagnostics, etc… Test program that allows the user to conduct a self-testing of machine functions.
Girbau flatwork ironers feature low energy consumption through the application of a drive system, which operates through a motorreducer, a speed inverter, an encoder and a versatile microprocessor which accurately controls the ironing speed. Maximum energy and drying efficiencies are achieved since linen-cylinder contact is up to 250° in total surface contact. Less heat is exhausted into the laundry room due to maximum thermal isolation. A filter located at the fan air-intake area, prevents lint exhaust (except model PS-2212) into open areas. Girbau flatwork ironers have been constructed to fulfill all environmental requirements, following an environmentally friendly manufacturing process and using easily recyclable materials, according to standard EN ISO 14001 philosophy.
OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE WITH MINIMUM ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Girbau GAS heated flatwork ironers provide maximum energy utilization, achieving optimum performance with minimum consumption.
