EZ eco smart cleaner

Coldwater’s EZ eco smart cleaner is a quantum improvement in wire and press felt cleaning compared to oscillating showers. It uses traversing high pressure rotating heads that deliver 150 bar (2,200 psi) operating pressure, plus shear forces from rotation. The 120 mm (4.72”) diameter heads deliver twice as much cleaned area in the same amount of time as traditional oscillating showers. This gets fabrics cleaner with far less water, reducing freshwater consumption by at least 90%. Plus, the EZ eco smart cleaner minimizes mist, delivering dramatic energy savings because mist removal equipment can be eliminated. Typical ROI is less than one year. >> Learn more
