Clearfield, Pennsylvania

More than 40 years later, the company continues to be innovative by leveraging the latest technology and putting it to the test in an effort to bring advancement and reliability to the car wash Industry. The main focus today is designing and manufacturing products that either solve a problem, create efficiencies, or enhance operations for the best consumer experience.

What’s New/Best Seller • SubZero Winterization System.

Advantages/Features • Subzero technology controls the flow of compressed air and an anti-freeze solution to purge and protect exposed fluid lines from freezing in the wash bay and other similar applications. The smart controller works off two main signals. The first signal is the outside ambient temperature, which has two automatic set points to enable the system. The second signal works off a 24-volt signal from the wash bay to complete the blow down and/or antifreeze purge. This process drastically reduces dependency on freshwater weeping and sewage costs. Equipped with fail safe protection should power, air compressors, or a system component fail, the subzero system will detect any failure. Once the system detects a failure it will enable city water weep and then automatically detect when the failure is resolved and continue its normal operation.
