New products - CMS 2011

15th of September 2011

ECJ's preview to what's being launched at the CMS show in Berlin from September 20-23.


Among the new products on the Kärcher stand is the walk-behind B 40 C-W scrubber dryer, featuring a brand new operating system called the Kärcher Intelligent Key. This is used to set individual user profiles, making it extremely easy to operate, claims the company.

First, parameters such as speed of travel, brush rotation speed and detergent dosage are set to suit the application. The premises manager then transfers these settings to the operators’ keys and after that the operator uses a rotary switch to select the programme required.

The machine is economical to run, says Kärcher, because only the required amounts of energy and detergent are used - it is particularly energy-efficient on the eco!efficiency setting.

Water temperature in the new compact class hot water high pressure cleaners can be varied between 20° and 155°C - also for energy-efficient operation. On the eco!efficiency setting, the machines’ fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 20 per cent because many types of soiling can be removed at around 60°C.

The key feature of the Unger stand is window cleaning with pure water systems. An expert will demonstrate the HiFlo CarbonTec system and the RO and DI- water filter systems on a live demo window, and visitors have the opportunity to try them for themselves.

The HiFlo range is being expanded with the addition of some new tools, such is an entry indoor cleaning system which enables effective cleaning of windows which are hard to reach. Also new is the Y-Adapter for the HiFlo MultiLink adapter system - allowing the operator to use two tools at height such as a cleaning brush and a scraper or a scrubbing pad.

The new ErgoTec Ninja squeegee for window cleaners offers channels of up to 105 cm in length - meaning more work in less time. And Unger says its ergonomic construction ensures smooth and easy working, even for long periods.

Specialising in professional sprayers for use with cleaning agents or foam is Gloria. Both the FoamMaster FM 10 and FM 50 are particularly suitable for use with foam, the company says, and the user can easily vary the degree of foaming.

The FM 10 has a capacity of one litre and is designed for cleaning smaller objects such as lavatories and kitchens. With a five-litre capacity the FM 50 is recommended for effective cleaning of larger objects. Both are equipped with a high performance pump and fan nozzle.

For large scale cleaning with acid and alkaline cleaning agents the company has developed the CleanMaster series - CM 12, 50 and 80 - with capacities of 1.25, five and eight litres. For smaller applications there are half-litre and one-litre versions - the CM 05 and 10.

Bay West

The Bay West line of coloured washroom dispensers - for toilet tissue, towels and hand soap - is being showcased at the Disposables UK stand. Designed to reduce consumption and minimise waste, the company says these models can lower operating costs.

For example, Wave'n Dry, Hands-Free and Hybrid hand towel dispensers each deliver a measured amount of paper to every user to save on over-use. And cross-contamination risk is reduced because the user does not have to pull a lever or press a button to get a towel.

Kimberly-Clark has launched The Healthy Workplace Project, an initiative designed to show facilities managers how taking steps to eradicate germs from the office environment could cut absenteeism and raise staff productivity levels.

The company says it will offer companies advice and practical support to enable them to install hygiene systems around the workplace and to inspire staff to use them regularly. Businesses who sign up to the project will be offered the opportunity to receive a comprehensive assessment of their working environment, from reception desks to individual workstations. Kimberly-Clark Professional will then make tailored recommendations on where to place its products - such as hand sanitisers and desk wipes.

Also included is a pack comprising stickers, posters and other material carrying information and messages about workplace hygiene. The aim is to encourage long-term positive change in staff behaviour.

There is also a dedicated website at offering guidance on implementing healthy workplace initiatives and on how to best engage with staff to communicate the benefits of workplace hygiene.

The new five-litre foam unit Foam-Matic 5 P from Birchmeier is designed for mobile and flexible foaming without connection to a compressed air line.

Thanks to the large air compression volume, the effective hand pump and four bar operation pressure, a very dry foam can be created - ideal for cleaning vertical surfaces and equipment. Plus the long contact and reaction time save mechanical cleaning effort, energy, chemical and working time. Birchmeier claims one litre of foam liquid can cover up to 40 square metres.

The iMatic is the newest Wetrok ride-on scrubber dryer, boasting simple operation thanks to the touch-sensitive Touch N Go operating panel. The electronic Smart Drive System (SDS) allows the operator to steer, accelerate and brake with just one hand.

The operating panel comes in six languages and a number of cleaning programmes can be stored in the system. This means cleaning chemical and water are applied automatically.

The operator does not need to dismount the machine to change cleaning agent, as the iMatic carries two containers and the integral chemical injection system ensures excess chemical is never used. To tackle stubborn stains, there's the Power Shot.
