CustomKraft has over 33 years of experience manufacturing self-service car wash equipment. CustomKraft’s patented MultiPressure System, single pump design is offered in the bypass and variable frequency drive design. CustomKraft produces complete self-service systems and components including bay meters, booms, air dryers, and vacuums.
What’s New/Best Seller • Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).
Advantages/Features • Customers can start equipment using credit/debit/fleet cards, coins, tokens, and/or bills. Customer bay selection initiates at high pressure then changes to owner pre-set pressures — supporting customer satisfaction with 400 percent faster product delivery to car wash bays. Stacked VFD units have a small footprint with easy access to parts. Longer pump life is gained with gravity feed and by purging each pump with rinse water after selections. Systems have enhanced reliability using one delivery line per boom and are pre-plumbed and pre-wired for simple installation. These high efficiency systems save money using Super E motors, timing belt drives, and Weepmiser freeze protection on stainless steel frames.
Customer/Operator Support • Nationwide and global distribution. CustomKraft provides two-year limited warranty, free training seminars, illustrated manuals, and online or toll-free technical support.
