Orbital provides the consumer with two drums, which can be used as washing baskets. One drum is white (for white/ light clothing) and the other drum is blue (for coloured/ dark clothing).

Energy Efficiency
Reducing the time and effort of sorting out clothes before a wash will shorten the number of steps required to achieve the end goal and this will lead to the task being accomplished successfully and efficiently.

Spherical Drum - The spherical drum pivots on two axes allowing your clothes to move in all directions for a faster and more energy efficient wash. Once the drum is inserted into the machine the solenoid drive rotates the drum. As the drum rotates in all directions a centrifugal force is acting on the drum. As the drum spins it forces the clothes to stick to the inner sides of the drum allowing the water to pass through and efficiently washes the
clothes.
