Atlanta, 24th, October 2019.- ISTOBAL USA will attend the North American Commercial Vehicle Show for the first time backed up by the huge growth of its industrial wash range. The US subsidiary of the Spanish group specializing in vehicle wash and care solutions has tripled sales in the industrial wash range this year, thanks to its innovative solutions such as ISTOBAL HW’INTRAWASH and ISTOBAL HW’PROGRESS.

From October 28 to 31, the ISTOBAL USA subsidiary will present during NACV Show in Atlanta (Booth 2020) its pioneering solutions for washing commercial vehicles to continue strengthening this line of business in the US. In fact, companies such as Walmart, Kroger, Food City, Charger Logistics, and many school districts in the US rely on the technology developed by ISTOBAL.

The ISTOBAL HW’INTRAWASH stands out among the ISTOBAL’s truck wash solutions. It is a revolutionary piece of automatic equipment for cleaning and disinfecting the interior of trailers and box containers, which reduces water and chemical usage, as well as cleaning time.

Internationally patented and easy to use and install, ISTOBAL HW’INTRAWASH guarantees a professional interior wash and an FSMA compliant disinfection of refrigerated and dry van trailers, as well as shipping containers.

The system is an industrial alternative to a manual wash.  Compared to a manual wash process, the machine cleans 75% faster and facilitates better control over chemical products. It can clean a 53’ trailer interior in as little as 3 minutes and clean and sanitize in 6 minutes.

ISTOBAL HW’INTRAWASH applies bactericide chemicals and guarantees a safe and controlled sanitization by using a high-pressure pumping system and a highly accurate chemical dosing system. It also washes out and collects dirt and debris inside a hopper.

Its multiple programs can be adapted to the requirements of speed or cleaning in the vehicle interior, allowing each unit to receive the wash program needed. ISTOBAL HW’INTRAWASH can work with two different chemical products to be selected depending on the type of cargo to wash and/or disinfect.
