Miele at the CMS: Professionals for the economical processing of mops and Co.

Gütersloh, August 8, 2019 No. 066/2019
  • Extensive product portfolio on display

  • Machines with load capacities ranging from 6 to 32 kg

Wherever large volumes of mops and cleaning cloths need to be cleaned on a daily basis, Miele offers technology which rises to the challenge: Washing machines and dryers with load capacities from 6 to 32 kg – to suit contract cleaners' needs and the space available. All machines can be purchased outright, rented or leased, and equipped with useful accessories. Miele's booth at the CMS in Berlin provides an overview of the product portfolio (September 24-27, Hall 4.2, Booth 128).

On an area covering 90 m², all models with the Mopstar logo will be on display: from compact washing machines and dryers with load capacities of 6 to 8 kg (Little Giants) through to models for a 20 kg load (Benchmark). Miele also offers models with a capacity of 32 kg as well as barrier washers for installation in a diaphragm wall.

Washing machines for cleaning textiles feature Miele's patented pre-spin dewatering process which spins out coarse soil and dirty water at the start of a programme. This allows more fresh water to enter the drum in the main wash. Special programmes offering thermal and chemo-thermal disinfection are available on all model sizes. These allow mops and cleaning cloths to come out of the process ready-for-use and soaked in detergent – with a pre-set residual moisture content. 

The new generation of Little Giants which has now been available for several months is fitted for the first time with a communication module which connects to external dispensing systems. Hence, the quantity dispensed and the timing can be programmed with precision, ensuring for example that disinfectant is not dispensed at the start of a wash process but only when a certain temperature has been reached.  

The larger Benchmark washing machines boast the particularly economic use of resources: In each cycle, the laundry load is showered with 500 l of water, simply by circulating the 30 l which enter the drum. This results in cleaning textiles being thoroughly drenched and wetted yet treated with gentle care in the process – all combined with low consumption costs.

Visitors to the Berlin show can inform themselves of further details and rental and leasing terms and conditions. The focus will be on machines which normally go about their work behind the scenes: For instance in the many German hotels belonging to the 'Motel One' chain, where Miele technology is deployed in reprocessing mops and cleaning cloths.
