On The Wash Front

Self-Serve Equipment – June 2015

06/01/15

CustomKraft Industries Inc. 

North Little Rock, Arkansas

CustomKraft has over 32 years of experience manufacturing self-service car wash equipment. The company offers all self-service car wash 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.

Advantages/Features • Equipment promotes customer satisfaction with 400 percent faster product delivery to car wash bays — all bay selections initiate at high-pressure, then change to owner pre-set pressure. Purges with rinse water after each selection to give longer pump life. Systems use one pump per bay that allows any selected function to be applied at high, medium, or low pressure. Units have enhanced operating reliability using one delivery line per boom and are pre-plumbed and pre-wired for simple and faster installation. The high efficiency systems save money using Super E motors, timing belt drives, and freeze protection on stainless steel frames.

Customer/Operator Support • Nationwide and global distribution. CustomKraft provides a 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.

Rowe Bill Changers

Bristol, Pennsylvania

Rowe has been a trusted source for reliable bill changers since 1962.

What’s New/Best Seller • Model 400RL-4.

Advantages/Features • The bill changer is an industry first – with four $5 bill recyclers that improve customer service and cash flow for car wash locations. Units can be equipped with four MEI recyclers that accepts $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills. The machine can receive a $20 bill from a patron and return three $5 bills plus 20 quarters. Other combinations are easily programed on site. What is unique is that the three $5 bills dispensed for the $20 had been collected from the previous patrons without the store owner or attendant touching the bills. Using the bill recycler in this way means store owners do not need to reload $5 bills saving time, money, and trips to the bank for change.
