Specificity agitator type machines

On the nuances of using washing machines with an activator remember a few of the older generation. Periodically, they share memories of the wound on the impeller blouse or stuck working disk wear. Probably, these domestic troubles have caused mass transfer equipment with the drum. Note that the new activator model aforesaid deficiencies deprived.

Oddly enough, the residents of many states of America prefer the type of activator. We will not expose their commitment questioned. Will understand better that is actually a is a washing machines of the category, how it differs from the usual drum system.

Activator called machine in which the washing solution moves the working vane disc. It is made of reinforced plastic. Blades are convex rib-like elements similar to the drums is well known to us machines.

The principle of operation of the activator washing machine

The activator of washing machine rotates with the processed water and the laundry detergent. Rotation can be done in two ways, with or without pauses

Drive rightfully and destination assigned technical term "activator". It is most commonly located at the bottom of the tank stiralki, at least on the side of its wall. It can either be rotated with pauses in the same direction, or with pauses in two opposite directions, or with reversal, but without pauses in operation.

Outdated and a new type of activator

The new generation stiralka outdated blade disk is replaced by the impeller. Activated their working environment is moving on the most efficient path

Varieties of aggregates with an activator

By the number of tanks in cars with an activator system are divided into odnobakovye and dvuhbakovye species. First Embodiment all incorporated manufacturer performs operations within a single tank. Second, as is clear from the definition, it has separate containers in an amount of two pieces: one of them is made wash, in the second - drying.

Also described already tanks and activators stiralki provided a relay or similar device, with which given period of operation of the washing drum, directly activator, and drying centrifuge pump, the extractor liquid.

In the simplest models of machines installed inside the tanks level sensors for monitoring the filling of the working space, taking into account the washing mode.

By type of activator machine control systems are divided into electromechanical and electronic. The mechanics affordable, reliable in operation, as It is not equipped with complex nodes and programmed operation. Electronics expensive, vulnerable to damage, but it is much more convenient to use.

According to the degree of automation shirt front with an activator conditionally divided into:

  • The simplest models. This machine with electromechanical control and belt drive. They have a tank, an activator and an elementary form timer. Most models are not provided spin, and if it is, it is a device with two rubberized rollers and the drive handle.
  • Semiautomatic. Include washing tub and a centrifuge for drying. Activator and centrifuge motors are driven by using a time relay. The activator is activated by V-belt drive, basket centrifuge via a flexible coupling.
  • Machines. There are one or two tanks. Perform processing operations linen program, taking into account the type of fabric and the degree of contamination. All processes are automated, to select the desired procedure has an electronic control panel.

Operated in US expanse machines with an activator connected to the piping with hot and cold water. In them, as in the simplest models, no heaters for the preparation of water for washing, thus significantly reducing the power consumption.

In the simplest typewriters with an activator produced only by dry mechanical rotating working fluid with the laundry inside the tub. To start the wash only need to switch the toggle switch on the control panel. To connect the water supply system of optional: it is easier to fill with water through the hose, focusing on the level gauge.

Upon completion of washing soap water is drained through a hose connected to the bottom of the tank to the drain. The machines pumping process stimulates the pump. All models are equipped with filters for retaining the fabric lint, hair, animal hair, threads etc.

Dvuhbakovy variant with mechanical control

The range of machines with a mechanical activator type of management is dominated by small odnobakovye model and compact semi-automatic

Large model with two tanks

Today released dvuhbakovye model with a separate centrifuge with an elementary control. On the panel there are only two toggle or rotary mechanism for defining only the duration of washing and spinning

Programmable washing machines

Now, however, in the range of washing machines with an activator has a variety of feature-rich, in the simplest models, there are at least four kinds of programs

Scope of application equipment

The specifics of installation and connection stiralok activator defines the technical complexity of the aggregates and the degree of soiling. Machines, a part of which often included a drying chamber, weigh about 70 - 100 kg. Install and connect them by a fixed pattern for continuous operation.

Electromechanical elementary and semi-automatic models weigh an average of 10 - 25 kg, and this is their distinct advantage. Lightness is in fact a guarantee of mobility, providing the opportunity to take with them for the summer city ​​for use in the country, easily transported to a new apartment to those who have not yet permanent housing.

Easy washing machines - a real find for the new parents. Erases it just a couple of tens of minutes. Using electro-washing machines with an activator, can be quickly and easily put in order baby clothes and diapers, to eliminate the formation of stubborn stains, have always left stretches fresh things.

Machines for washing out of town

Attracting affordable price, ease, providing ease of transportation, there is no need mandatory water connection makes the activator technique indispensable in a private sector

Economic advantages and reasonable benefits

In addition to the priority of mobility and the ability to use the machine without having to connect the activator to the communications there are a number of positive qualities, which we can not ignore it:

  • Energy savings. Stiralok tanks are filled with water already heated, which significantly reduces costs. The truth is offering for sale range includes models with Taine, in this case, the economic effect will the fact that you need to heat a relatively small amount of water.
  • Low water flow. Also relative criterion. Few species spend only electromechanical loading washing tub 1 - 4 kg of dry laundry. Stationary machines with drying erase mini laundries, water consumed according to the status.
  • Indiscriminateness detergent. Electromechanical assemblies activator "accept" any kind of powder, including tools for hand washing. Upload them to the electronic equipment that could be sensitive to foaming, it is not recommended.
  • Reliability. In the assembly of machines with electromechanical control elementary type used mechanical devices and components. Situations that can damage them, occur infrequently.
  • Extremely short duration of the wash cycle. Period laundry treating the equipment with an activator varies from 5 to 30 minutes. The owners of the equipment it is possible to select the optimum time mode, run the machine several times without long breaks, required electronic types.

A strong argument in favor of the acquisition of the simplest stiralki activator is its highly attractive price, in the range from 1.5 to 7500 Russian rubles, and broad areas use. It really is a stand-alone equipment, do not need a water supply from the centralized system.

Undemanding to detergents

The washing tub electromechanical models can literally fill up and fill any detergents, including those intended for hand washing powders

List of operational shortcomings

Indisputable merits of washing machines with the activator does not deprive them of their shortcomings, which appear in the list:

  • Restrictions in the wash mode. The owners of the electromagnetic models have only a timer, by which a predetermined period of washing and drying, if the equipment is completed by a centrifuge. On machines with electronic control, too few programs.
  • Top loading. Cars with an activator produced exclusively from top-loading, which is why they can not be embedded in furniture kitchen sets.
  • The need for manual work. Activator washing technique requires owners to participate in the processes of extraction and rinsing. If the unit is not connected to the water lines, the temperature range of training and water is also carried out manually.

If the machine is used with the activator in a private house uncomfortable, it is quite time-consuming to be as a set, and the discharge of water. It will first need to be collected in a separate container and then disposed of in a drain pit or gutter. In addition, the equipment can not be run in the absence of the owners, it is necessary to constantly monitor the laundry.

Note that the restrictions in the choice of modes peculiar to the old electro-mechanical models, whose duties do not include remediation of fine linen and cashmere sweaters. The new development takes into account the wishes of consumers, it is possible to wash delicate and colored things.

Hair net and holding down

To electromechanical model must not be blocked during the washing and draining water, it is necessary to use mesh bags or thin cloth in which to wrap the hazardous equipment items

Exemplary embodiments of the activator stiralok

Consider the specifics of the design and operation of the washing machine with the activator mechanism working fluid movement on the most popular models in the home. Categorize them, according to their technical complexity. Disassemble start with a typical representative stiralok without spinning, then move on to semiautomatic and automatic rifles.

All types of machines required to wash and rinse functions to perform, wringing, drying, if they are laid down by the manufacturer, without damaging the structure of the tissue.

Model # 1 - "Baby-2"

The compact machine is intended for washing a small amount of laundry in the party at home. loading weight must not exceed 1 kg in a dry state.

In the tank the washing and rinsing poured 28 liters, duration of washing is not more than 5 minutes, the rinse can not longer than 4.2 minutes. The time interval between the rinsing and washing at least 3 minutes.

Demand in the market activator stiralka

"Old-timers" in the segment activator washing machines, presented in the domestic market, is the series of equipment with "Baby" logo

Treatment of laundry loaded in the tank is produced by the action of the circulating soap solution penetrating between the fibers and the fabric pore. Washing container comprises a plastic tank and a similar cover. Activator and its trigger device mounted in the machine side wall.

Vane drive driven by an electric action to the shaft which he just attached. Commissioning of electrical equipment in the washing tub is made through the flange to seal it applies the sealing cuff. The housing of the electric motor is equipped with a cap with a switch fixed on it.

Driving device Malutka typewriter

Activator brand washing machines Malutka mounted in a side wall. The electric motor is placed outside the wash tub, which significantly increases safety

Before washing in the machine "Baby-2" heavily soiled x / w is recommended to soak the laundry in the washing solution, stubborn stains thoroughly lather. If desired, in the simplest machines prostirnut thin lacy things or wardrobe items with a fringe, it is better to put in the net or a bag made of thin fabric.

It is not recommended to fill into the washing water tank, a temperature exceeding 80º C, minimum heating at 30 - 40º C is used for treating clothes made of wool and viscose. If washing is carried out not too heavily soiled laundry, allowed shortening of the period of its implementation.

Washing is done the easiest way. The water-filled tank suitable temperature poured powder, strictly observing dosage. Procedure activated toggle switch located on the control panel. Upon completion of the wash tank gaining absolutely pure water heated to 40º C, and trigger rinsing.
