Istobal develops new line for sanitization of commercial vehicles
Istobal is extending its range of commercial wash range with new equipment that sanitizes fleets of trucks, buses, vans and trains, among others, with disinfectant product.
The multinational group Istobal announces in a blogpost on their own website that they have developed an innovative line for the complete sanitization of commercial vehicles with which it is extending its range of wash equipment for the transport sector with new technologies for the sanitization of fleets of trucks, buses, vans and trains, among others. The range is expanded in response to new cleaning needs arising from Covid-19.
The equipment incorporates programs with disinfectant in its Istobal HW’Progress rollover for 180 degrees external sanitization. Aimed at buses, trucks, waste collectors and livestock transport, this program works as a final complement to a wash program. First carrying out a complete conventional wash, the sanitization program then applies a disinfectant biocide product and is not rinsed.
It should be noted that this program can also be incorporated into already installed machines of this model, thanks to the upgrade kits.
Also, commercial jet wash systems from Istobal have special programs for external and internal disinfection using low pressure and the controlled application of disinfectant. In this case, a subsequent rinse is carried out.
External disinfection arch
Istobal has also developed automatic arches for the external disinfection of trucks, coaches, buses and trains, trams. These are autonomous arches that include a detection system by means of photocells that are activated when vehicles pass through and achieve a quick and effective 360 degrees disinfection. These arches have an average disinfection capacity of 1,000 vehicles per day.
A solution for the interior is the Istobal HW’Intrawash, an internationally patented system for the professional interior cleaning and disinfection of refrigerated trailers and shipping containers. This equipment should achieve effective and safer disinfection in the interior wash of trucks compared to manual wash and reduces average wash time by 60 per cent. It applies disinfectant products and performs high-pressure wash for deep wash and controlled, professional disinfection in just five minutes.
With the Istobal HW-Intrawash the company increases productivity and safety in the wash of refrigerated trailers in the current context and achieves greater control and savings in the consumption of chemicals and water.
For interior sanitization, Istobal has manual sprayers for spraying disinfectant onto the surfaces inside the cabin. The multinational company recommends spraying all surfaces evenly and thoroughly, leaving the doors open, the windows down and allowing the product to work for five minutes. Any excess product should then be removed with an absorbent cloth or, alternatively, with paper.
In addition, the group produces ozone equipment with a special program for vans that completely sanitizes the cabin in 10 minutes, including the ventilation system and using the vehicle’s air recirculation. It should be noted that ozone also eliminates unpleasant odors by oxidation. This service is appealing because it keeps delivery vans sanitized, which are making a significant effort with the increase in online sales during the pandemic.
