The classic drying cabinet from Swedish manufacturer Nimo can now add an unexpected area of use that may benefit the preschools’ activities. The heat in a specific drying cabinet can make certain viruses on textiles no longer contagious. According to a study carried out by the Swedish Research Institute, RISE, on behalf of Nimo, it was established that with the right handling, both the common norovirus (winter vomiting disease) and Sars-CoV-2 (corona) are inactivated by the heat in Nimo’s drying cabinet Easy Dryer 1900.Read more
The plan had been finalized. Then the pandemic came. During her first year as CEO for the world’s greatest drying cabinet manufacturers, Karin Kruse has been forced to navigate in unpredictable global times and simultaneously needed to adapt herself to a calmer local mentality. Now, Nimo’s CEO has kicked off a number of initiatives in 2021 filled with expansions, digitalization, and continuous work for sustainable textile management.Read more
This October will see the launch of a new generation of Swedish-made drying cabinets that have more capacity and more efficient drying technology than previous generations. Nimo has already booked a number of orders for the two latest models – Sensor Dryer and Easy Dryer – from both Swedish and international customers. “We see great […]Read more
Nimo will soon launch the first drying cabinet ever to boast both ECO and Turbo settings has along with greater capacity and an unprecedently efficient drying technology. These are just some of the many new features on tap as the world’s biggest drying cabinet manufacturer gets ready to release its brand-new product line.
“It started with a vision of developing a new market-leading premium drying cabinet. And we’ve succeeded in doing just that. We analysed the nuts and bolts of previous generations of drying cabinets and listened carefully to various survey groups to find out exactly what the market needs and wants,” says Jan-Åke Östlin, technology director at Nimo.
The two models in the new product series have more new functions and settings than any other drying cabinet in the market. The D17 series features technology that makes drying more efficient and increases capacity through a whole new air flow concept.
“In most dryer cabinets, hot air travels down the centre, between hangers. In that scenario, if you hang a lot of clothes or if you place a garment over the centre space, you’re blocking the air flow and impeding circulation. That is common in preschools where a lot of garments are dried more or less constantly.”“In our new models, the airflow travels up the rear of the drying cabinet. This lets the air circulate regardless of the amount of clothes hung in there while it makes space for more hangers. In other words, you can hang more clothes without affecting the drying process.
ECO and Turbo
In addition to the regular manual and auto settings, the D17 models feature two separate ECO and one turbo settings.
“There are no energy ratings for drying cabinets yet. We have therefore developed an ECO setting to match the A energy rating and an ECO Plus setting that corresponds to the A+++ energy rating. The ECO Plus setting means that only the fan is on. That can be likened to drying your clothes outside but without the risk of sun bleaching or exposure to exhaust and pollen.
“The Turbo setting is designed for people in a hurry, who need their clothes dried fast but who want to reduce wear and tear on their garments. The Turbo function provides our consumers with the briefest drying time in a drying cabinet,” says Östlin.
With the D17 series, Nimo has taken yet another step on the road to a vastly more effective and energy-efficient drying solution for households and large laundries.
“The D17 is a great leap forward for both Nimo and for the drying cabinet market. We’ll remain in the vanguard by developing products for the laundry room that are gentle to both clothes and the environment,” says Timo Taiminen, Nimo’s Managing Director.
