GED Introduces New Stainless Steel Glass Washer Size

A Revolutionary New Glass Washer Design to the Industry

Twinsburg, OH ⎯ October 11, 2002 | GED, the leader in innovation for the IG and flat glass industries, is pleased to introduce a totally new, stainless steel horizontal washer design – a design so unique, it is being patented.

Currently available in 60″ and 84″ models, this new washer offers superior glass cleaning, low-e glass compatibility, efficient operation and water usage and an easy to maintain design. Only GED offers a standard 8-brush design, with complete brushing action in the pre-wash section to power off dirt, dust and Lucor. Reverse triple rinse water recirculation processes fresh water from the final rinse to the pre-rinse and finally the pre-wash section, where contaminants are completely flushed away. This not only reduces fresh water usage, it eliminates contamination of the wash and rinse section, and greatly reduces the chance of plugged nozzles. Water is also conserved during “Sleep Mode”, so that rinse water is only used when glass is present or to keep the brushes wet during idle time.

This new washer easily handles Low-E glass, with such features as: “Creep Mode” which eliminates brush marks associated with stopping Low-E glass in the washer; an audible Low-E detector which alerts the loader if a sheet of glass is placed Low-E side down; and superior brush materials for improved soft coat Low-E cleaning.

Stainless steel and non-corrosive material construction throughout ensures long washer life and DI water compatibility. The patent pending “Super Scroll”™ Quick Clean Out System makes is easy to clean out any broken glass and prevents tank build-up.

New GED designed air knives ensure that glass is fully dried and allow 60″ wide glass to be handled without turning it. The new design will also be available in a 96” width, as well.
