Prochem Europe: Stand C70
Our image shows the Prochem stand before all the equipment was brought onto it and while it might look impressive here, just wait until you see it in its full glory - there is so much to discover!
For example, there's the Endeavor - a brand new portable carpet and upholstery extractor which has so impressed the judges of the Innovation Awards, that it has made it into the finals (you'll have to wait until tomorrow's issue to see if it's been awarded top prize, but whether or not it has, it certainly looks a winner to us...)
Power, performance and convenience features include dual 6.6in. high performance, low noise vacuum motors; handle-mounted wheels for easy vehicle loading; top front-mounted controls, and new front-mounted wand stowage. Prochem's ultra-reliable 150 psi induction motor pump is standard (250psi version optional) as is a slide-in version of its advanced Heat 'n' Run inline stainless steel heat exchanger. The Endeavor comes complete with hoses and 2-jet Glidemaster stainless steel wand and, as with all Prochem cleaning machines, a free training voucher to ensure users get the very best from them.
Other new products you can see on the stand include what is thought to be the lightest professional two-motor carpet cleaner ever built. Equipped with a patented weight distribution system, both of the Dynamic 380E's motors are housed in its base, with accessories located on the lower part of the suction body. Simply install the DCS converter and in 10 seconds - with no tools needed - the Dynamic is ready to use as a dry compound brush unit to dry-clean rugs and carpets. Weighing only 7.8 kilos, this versatile machine offers a cleaning width of 38 cm (14.9") and comes with extension hose, telescopic wand, crevice tool, upholstery tool as standard.
Fans of the Birchmeier range of quality spraying equipment, meanwhile, will be pleased to hear that Prochem has extended distribution of the Swiss-built technology with the launch of the new Foam-Matic 1.25E and Foam-Matic 5E foam spraying units.
The Foam-Matic 1.25E is a pump-up hand sprayer with foam nozzle ideal for application of carpet and upholstery shampoo and detergent cleaners for hygiene, vehicles and vertical surfaces, while the Foam-Matic 5E is a professional quality polyethylene sprayer with foam lance and EPDM seals, suitable for the application of foaming alkaline detergent cleaners to vehicles, hygiene and vertical surfaces.
Also new on show, Prochem's B104 Fibreclean is a spray maintenance cleaner for commercial carpets and upholstery offering a 'no rinse' soil-encapsulating formulation to clean carpets and wet-cleanable fabrics by spray and brush application; A275 Fibrefresh - a bio-enzymatic dual action carpet and fabric deodoriser with long lasting action, and E848 Ink Solv - a micro-emulsion spotter for permanent marker, ink, crayon, nail polish and PVA adhesive.
Meanwhile, Prochem's award-winning Microsan sanitiser and cleaner is being relaunched at the Show with a fresh, new apple blossom fragrance. Come and see what you think of it! Fully-compliant with the product biocidal efficacy data in the REACH and Biocidal Products Registrations, and EC registered anti-microbial multisurface sanitiser and cleaner, Microsan is effective against bacteria including MRSA and viruses including Hepatitis B and HIV.
And of course, as always, Britain's highly popular provider of training to professional carpet & upholstery cleaners is on hand to help. Assisting visitors with their enquiries will be members of Prochem Europe's Training, Technical, Truck Mount Service and Sales teams.
