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

Advantages/Features • The SubZero Winterization System protects fluid lines in the wash bay from freezing by controlling compressed air and anti-freeze flow. It operates using two main signals: ambient temperature and a 24-volt signal from the wash bay. This reduces freshwater weeping and sewage costs. Equipped with fail-safe protection, it automatically switches to city water weep if a failure is detected and resumes normal operation once resolved.
