Istobal shows off smart technology at Uniti Expo

Istobal, the Spanish car wash and car care solutions group, will launch its smart technologies at Uniti Expo 2018.

It will be demonstrating the Istobal M'NEX32 rollover, including new features and optional extras. Its payment terminal is now equipped with the new Smartdrive, a system that allows users to select a basic wash program and add different extras based on their needs and preferences, such as insect remover, Glossy Tears wax, rainwater repellent, or rim spray, among others.

The new Xtract Dosing System will also be on show. The company has redesigned the dosing system used with Istobal esens products to simplify handling and improve control of the washing process and the amount of chemicals.

Using pure product, Istobal says the new system generates less waste with a two-litre bottle providing the same number of services as the standard 20 or 25-litre container.

Other Istobal M'NEX32 novelties at Uniti Expo include lit-up centring guides and a foamy rim spray which, in combination with Istobal wheel wash systems, is designed to remove stubborn dirt thanks to its high foaming power and the penetration of product all over the wheel surface.

At the jet wash area, visitors will see the Istobal n'joyavant for two bays. The cabinet-fitted equipment includes a boiler, a water recirculation system for frost prevention, and all treatment and disinfection devices for mains, recirculated and osmotised water.

A range of jet wash accessories designed to make car washing easier, more comfortable and fun will be also presented. They include bicycle racks and accessories for hanging up helmets and jackets, or children's spray guns to turn car washing into a family leisure activity. Other initiatives intended to surprise users include on-bay fragrance systems and special lighting for night washing.

Istobal will present a new advanced physical recycler that improves the quality of recycled water, reducing solids, turbidity, odours, surfactants and organic matter thanks to high-yield filtration.

Uniti Expo 2018 is in Stuttgart from May 15-17.
