Announcing SAFE to Protect against Dryer Fires

Safe

Announcing SAFE to Protect against Dryer Fires. Maytag WA and NT, the exclusive distributors of the Maytag Mutiload Energy Efficient dryers, are now supplied with FREE S.A.F.E

S.A.F.E is Sensor Activated Fire Extinguishing

A large percentage of commercial dryer fires result from spontaneous combustion after hours when no one is in the laundry room. The Sensor-Activated Fire Extinguishing (S.A.F. E.) system protects your facility when you can’t, whether the dryers are running or not. As long as the controls have power, the S.A.F. E. system is working to protect your investment. It’s a breakthrough in commercial laundry safety!

YOU’VE ALWAYS DEPENDED ON MAYTAG TO OFFER RELIABLE COMMERCIAL LAUNDRY APPLIANCES THAT PROVIDE YEARS OF WORRY-FREE PERFORMANCE.

Now you can depend on Maytag to help prevent dangerous, costly dryer fires with the S.A.F.E. system on our Maytag Multi-Load drying tumblers. The S.A.F.E. system is a unique, controlled extinguisher that automatically detects fires in the dryer, douses them with water and alerts you that the system has been activated.

MAYTAG® COMMERCIAL DRYERS WITH THE S.A.F.E. SYSTEM ARE SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE TO INSTALL—just run a ½” cold-water line to the dryer. You can even use the water supply from your washers. That’s all it takes to protect your laundry facility—and you may even reduce your insurance costs in the process!

  1. The microprocessor control MONITORS EXHAUST TEMPERATURE while the dryer is operating, and temperature inside the drum while the tumbler is stationary.
  2. If a fire is detected, WATER VAPOR SOAKS THE LAUNDRY IN THE TUMBLER for three minutes, dousing the flames. The tumbler rotates once every 15 seconds during this time to ensure that the entire load is sprayed thoroughly.
  3. THE SYSTEM CHECKS THE TEMPERATURE EVERY THREE MINUTES, automatically shutting off once the fire has been extinguished to prevent flooding and protect the dryer from water damage.
  4. THE DISPLAY INDICATES THAT THE S.A.F.E. SYSTEM HAS BEEN ACTIVATED, alerting you that a fire has been extinguished. In most cases, the dryer can be reused after a short service visit, minimizing lost production time. The S.A.F.E. system is featured on drying tumbler models MDG30PD, MDG50PN, MDG75PN and MLG32PD so you can choose tumblers with a 30,- 35- 50,- or 75-pound capacity to match the needs of your operation. No matter which of these models you choose, you’ll get peace of mind knowing that your people, your machines and your facility are protected. It’s another way you can depend on Maytag to provide innovative solutions for your business.
