Full Answer

Dexter, a Southern California manufacturer, specializes in a line of energy-efficient, water-saving commercial laundry equipment for a range of applications. An 80 g-force spin cycle accelerates the drying process. A sump-free design and flexible cycle programming further reduce water consumption. The faster spin cycle allows for more loads over a given period of time.

Upgrading and expanding an existing facility may be easier with Dexter designs: single or three phase power with a lower amp draw that may also eliminate the need for higher amperage panels when adding machines to a laundromat. In a coin-operated setting, Dexter machines tend to be more attractive than the competitors and draw additional business to the establishment. The faster washing cycle is also much appreciated. Reviews suggest that Dexter machines are easy to load and unload and are rarely out of order. According to Suds and Duds of Franklin, North Carolina, the business has spent 85 percent less in repairs and water consumption since installing Dexter equipment and has since purchased five more machines for their facility.
