Washing machine's spin drier speed.
« on: 26/09/2007 15:34:45 »
If a spin drier has its speed of rotation increased from from 1200rpm to 1500rpm
has it become 56% more effective at removing water from clothes ?

The force on the water would be 56% more but that may or may not improve the drying power pro rata. It will  probably depend upon the fabric, too.
Unless it's a well made machine, its bearings may not last as well !
