Large-Capacity Tumbler

The Huebsch® Super Twinstar 45-lb. stack unit provides 90 lb. of drying capacity. Although the Super Twinstar has 40-lb. more rated capacity than Huebsch’s 50-lb. single-pocket tumbler, it occupies less floor space. A large door opening aids loading and unloading, while user-friendly dual-digital controls make the stack easy to operate. The Super Twinstar’s axial airflow system sends all the heat through the cylinder for energy efficiency. The tumblers are easy to install, with single gas, electrical, and vent connections.

Laundry Pretreatment

The new Bio-Pro Urine Odor and Stain Laundry Pre-Treat, available from Direct Supply, contains bioenzymes that destroy uric acid on linens, blankets, towels, napkins, clothing, and all other machine-washable textiles. With this pretreatment, alkaline boosters or higher temperatures are not needed to leave linens less acidic, which helps to reduce bedsores.
