What’s New/Best Seller • Operator Pro VFD Direct Drive Pump Stands.
Advantages/Features • Kleen-Rite’s Operator Pro Pump Stands are compact pumping units that use less equipment to operate a standard car wash bay. VFDs (variable-frequency drives) allow a single pump to perform low, medium, and high-pressure services for each bay. Replacing traditional contactors, VFDs gradually increase the speed at startup and decrease the speed at shutdown. This reduces electrical consumption and cuts down on the abuse of pumps and equipment. Available in a variety of bay numbers and function configurations.
