Soft-Mount Wetcleaning Machines
Delivering highly flexible controls for unrivaled programmability, efficiency, performance and results, Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines are durably constructed for years of rigorous use. Engineered to perfectly and gently wetclean a variety of items and fabrics – from silk, cashmere and wool to wedding gowns, tailored suits and dress shirts – Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines are backed by an industry-leading 5/3-year factory warranty and available in freestanding soft-mount and hard-mount models.
Poseidon soft-mount wetcleaning machines deliver an easy-to-install freestanding design, programmable extract speeds up to 400 G-force, superior productivity and advanced programming flexibility. These are Poseidon's most advanced, high-performance wetcleaning machines.
The freestanding design of Poseidon soft-mount wetcleaning machines allows for quick installation and same-day operation. There is no need to bolt them to concrete foundations. The soft-mount machines are constructed using a Multi-Directional Springs (MDS) system that absorbs 95 percent of all vibrations during the wetcleaning process. This allows installation in unconventional locations, including facilities with in-floor heat – all with little or no floor preparation or cost. Moreover, the freestanding design allows for simple relocation.
Programmable Extract Speeds up to 400 G-force
Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines gently reach extract speeds up to 400 G-force. Extract speeds are programmable to meet the specific wetcleaning needs of a variety of items. As extract speeds increase, so does the moisture removed during extract. The higher extract speeds of Poseidon soft-mount wetcleaning machines cut subsequent dry-time, natural gas consumption and labor expense. By cutting dry time, heat exposure and mechanical action are also reduced, resulting in less linen wear. Less time in the dryer significantly bolsters productivity and reduces utility costs.
Optimum Dosing for Unsurpassed Cleaning Results
To guarantee optimum cleaning for every load type, Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines feature 12 standard chemical injection signals with programmable time dosing and flush flexibility. Chemicals are diluted with water before being introduced into the machine drum – preventing direct chemical-to-linen contact – preventing linen damage.
Virtually any Garment or Fabric
Perfectly wetclean a wide array of items and fabrics – without shrinkage or damage – including dress shirts, wedding dresses, tailored suits, sweaters, skirts, silks, knits, wool, cotton, Gortex, polyester, linen, cashmere and camel hair. Poseidon makes it easy to calculate machine capacity and productivity by item type and piece count.
Poseidon offers two programmable controls – the Logi and Inteli. Both deliver unrivaled flexibility by allowing programmability of nearly every variable of the wash process. Fabricare operations require highly specified programs to properly wetclean a wide array of items and fabrics. These microprocessor controls deliver! Automatic chemical injection ensures items are properly wetcleaned every time, eliminating fabric damage due to chemical overuse. Despite their advanced technology, the controls couldn't be simpler to use. Once the programs are set, operators simply select a program number and press start.
Logi Pro Control
Superior programmability means textile care operations can properly clean a variety of fabrics and load types depending on specific needs. The highly flexible Logi Pro Control offers 25 individually modifiable programs—each with up to 11 baths, including multiple pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. The Logi Pro delivers up to six programmable water levels; a delayed start and rinse option; overnight soak; variable wash action; programmable extract speeds, including zero rotation; programmable compartment flush times up to 99 seconds and optional double flush; temperature controlled fill up to 194 degrees; and timed chemical dosing by the second. To ensure optimum efficiency and results, the Logi Pro Control, incorporates a water and chemical adjustment feature. Operators simply select the load size – 1/4 load, 1/2 load, 3/4 load or full load. The control automatically adjusts water levels and chemicals according to the selected load size – a feature that saves water and chemicals!
Advanced Inteli Control
The Inteli – Poseidon's most advanced and flexible control – delivers complete control of every conditional aspect of the wetcleaning process. Featuring an LCD display with easy-to-understand icons that indicate cycle and programming status, the control can be programmed manually or with memory card. Featuring 20 pre-programmed cycles and up to 79 individually modifiable cycles, users can control water temperature by degree (up to 194 degrees), wash rotation speed and duration, five on/off wash rotation combinations, multiple water levels, bath cool-down by degree; and six programmable extract speeds up to 400 G-force. The Inteli is so flexible, it can be programmed for a wash cycle of as little as three minutes up to an extended program lasting for hours or days. An auxiliary heat option enables bath water temperatures to be increased by degree. Optional overnight soak and delayed start are also standard features.
Inteli Manager Tool – Quick Programming
The Inteli can be programmed manually on the machine or using the Inteli Manager Tool (IMTx). IMTx is a software system that gives professional fabricare operations the ability to program wetcleaning machines via a personal computer. IMTx saves valuable time when configuring multiple programs on one machine, or when programming multiple machines. Users can view multiple programs simultaneously using IMTx so it's easy to compare, copy and modify each of the parameters within separate programs. Once saved, the programs can be downloaded to the IMTx Smart Card. The IMTx Smart Card is can be used in one machine, or a series of machines, using the smart-card interface. Additionally, programs are shareable electronically with other IMTx users, making programming simple regardless of the machine's geographic location. IMTx users can also upload a single machine's programming parameters onto a Smart Card, which can then be used to program other machines.
Sensible Ergonomics. Unrivaled Durability. Easy Maintenance
Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines feature durable AISI-304 stainless steel inner and outer drums designed for constant use. The front, side and top panels are constructed of steel and coated with Poseidon's unique Titan Steel Finish™ for superior appearance and corrosion resistance. Each component is engineered with as few welds as possible for unmatched strength. The oversized door, which allows for simple loading and unloading, is also equipped with a heavy-duty, bolt-style hinge to withstand constant use. Rounded cabinet corners, oversized bearings and a quality sealing system ensure years of trouble-free performance. Accessible components and simplified maintenance make Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines a pleasure to own, maintain and service. The top panel is easily removed without interfering with chemical dispensers. The drain is easily accessible via the removal of the front panel. Bearings are lubricated for a lifetime, the poly-v belt needn't be tightened, and bearings and seals are easily replaced without removing the machine drum.
Operating on single-phase power with inverter technology, Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines consume less energy and are less costly to install than industry standard three-phase units. No longer is a three-phase breaker required for installation—resulting in a significant savings during initial setup. If three-phase power is pre-wired, however, Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines are easily adapted to meet this requirement.
Poseidon technology allows for unrivaled wetcleaning using significantly less water. Designed without a sump – a water containment area at the base of the machine – Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines save up to 3 gallons of water with each fill, when compared to machines with outer tub sumps. Less water used results in lower water-heating costs and reduced chemical usage.
Poseidon Wetcleaning Machines also feature AquaFall™, which lowers water usage further. Water enters the machine drum through holes in the drum lifters. As the drum turns, lifters release water from above, resulting in superior load saturation, chemical penetration and rinsing.
Similarly, the Poseidon AquaMixer™ system enhances wash action by mixing hot and cold water to achieve precise bath temperatures. AquaMixer minimizes hot water consumption while enhancing results.
