This is the first installation of Istobal’s M’Wash 4
At the OK petrol station in Grubbenvorst in the Netherlands the very first M’Wash4 by Istobal is running. EenzetCarwash installed the rollover in the brand new wash hall. Both the technology and the design of the machine are striking.
In the Netherlands, Istobal is represented by EenzetCarwash. Eric Mekelenkamp of Eenzet takes us on a tour to Grubbenvorst, where the first rollover is installed at an OK location. “OK always pays a great deal of attention to the overall appearance of a car wash,” says Mekelenkamp. Cleanbuild took care of the walls and the floor has also been renovated and looks spic and span. Customers can buy the wash in the shop and also at the machine itself.
The rollover has a few striking elements. Firstly, of course, in this case the red colour. The design and pictograms have been renewed, and glass has been used on the front for a modern look. A clock indicates the time and outside temperature.
Mekelenkamp points to the rims of his car. “Due to high-pressure wheel washing, you can see multidisk brushes here to get the rims better clean.” On the side of the rollover you can see a drying system that is adjustable in height. “That is very unique,” says the sales director. “Often the drying is stationary.” In addition, the roof dryer can be lowered extremely low so that the front and back of the car are also better dried. The high-pressure and chemical nozzles are also attached to that dryer.
The rollover at OK is equipped with a light panel and works frequency-controlled so that everything runs smoothly and without jerks.
Mekelenkamp then shows us the technical area. “This has been completely stripped and redesigned. All the elements have been replaced.” He points to the control cabinet where the link to the payment system is made, a new boiler for hot water in the wash bays (which have also been renewed), the osmosis installation, the new water supply and pumps for the chemistry.
The rollover in Grubbenvorst is the same as that shown by EenzetCarwash at the Dutch trade show Tankstation Vakbeurs in November. Mekelenkamp says there have been many enthusiastic reactions to it, both because of the technology and the design. The M’Wash4 by Istobal is now in full production.
