Self-Serve Equipment

CustomKraft Industries Inc.

North Little Rock, AR

 

CustomKraft has over 31 years of experience manufacturing self-service car wash equipment. CustomKraft offers all self-service carwash supplies — from initial plans to customizing new bay meters for established washes — to help build a profitable wash.

What’s New/Best Seller • MultiPressure System® options include variable frequency drive or pump bypass units. 

Advantages/Features • Equipment is pre-plumbed and pre-wired for simple and faster installation. Both systems use one pump per bay that allows any selected function to be applied at high, medium, or low pressure. The high efficiency systems save money using Super E motors, timing belt drives, and freeze protection on stainless steel frames. Both systems have enhanced operating reliability using one delivery line per boom. All functions initiate at high-pressure, then change to owner pre-set pressure. Durable site specific decals match colorful in-bay instruction signs.  

Customer/Operator Support • Nationwide and global distribution. CustomKraft provides two-year limited warranty, free training seminars, illustrated manuals on compact discs, and toll-free tech support.

Price • Free quotes upon request.

Mark VII Equipment Inc.

Arvada, Colorado

 

Mark VII is the US subsidiary of WashTec AG of Germany, the world’s largest manufacturer of vehicle cleaning equipment.

What’s New/Best Seller • JetWash®.

Advantages/Features • Mark VII’s JetWash accommodates up to four bays in a self-contained unit only 56” wide and 24” deep, making it easy to get through a standard-sized door and easy to fit into a small equipment room. Variable frequency drives allow pump-speed change for each wash function, giving the operator complete control of water and chemical consumption. Direct drive motors run smoother and quieter than belts and pulleys, while eliminating the maintenance headache of regular adjustment. Injectors provide more precise control over chemical delivery than mixing tanks and air pumps, ensuring cars get clean while controlling operating costs for consumables. Solenoid plugs light up when activated for easy troubleshooting.
