New products - Pulire 2011 preview

20th of May 2011

ECJ looks ahead to the Pulire exhibition in Verona from May 24-26 with a round-up of the new products being launched there.


The CS140 Twin Action sweeping machine - aimed at urban and industrial areas - has been designed by Comac to effectively offer two sweeping machines in one.

At the heart of the machine is the patented TwinActionSystem, which combines a strong mechanical action to collect large pieces of waste with efficient suction for pick-up of finer dust. This, says Comac, reduces water consumption significantly while also making it suitable for use in the most challenging conditions.

Particular focus was given to environment and safety in the machine's development. Water consumption is low because it is used in a nebulised state only to control dust without wetting the ground. Fuel consumption and emissions have also been reduced thanks to the high performance hydraulic system and the Perkins industrial engine.

TTS will be demonstrating its Action Pro trolley system. This features removable 80 mm wheels and a new double bucket to separate the rinsing water from the detergent solution.

The trolley is double-handled and comes equipped with two drain-plugs - one to the front and one to the rear - for emptying out liquids.

The product is said to be ergonomic since the bucket is higher than on many trolleys, allowing the operator to work while standing. The Action Pro is also claimed to be eco-friendly since it is made entirely from polypropylene and is robust, non-rusting and recyclable.

New from Idrobase are two high pressure cleaners. The first operates at pressures up to 800 bar and is said to be particularly suitable for the industrial market, while the second works with cold water and is also designed for use in the industrial sector.

Club dei Riparatori – which is part of the Idrobase group – will be presenting a new 24-litre detergent nebuliser with plasticised tank. This is said to have double the life of a standard tank since the plastic prevents any oxidation or corrosion of the tank from chemical agents.

Also on display will be new ergonomic guns and lances plus the Kit Perfect Soffio 360 system. This comprises a simple fog module that pressurises water and sprays it through nozzles in a circular pattern.

Kärcher will be demonstrating its new dry vacuum T 12/1 eco!efficiency model and the BR 30/4 C Bp scrubber dryer.

The T 12/1 eco!efficiency is said to use 40 per cent less energy than appliances with comparable cleaning power while operating at noise levels of only 56 dB(A). This means the vacuum can be used in noise-sensitive areas and for cleaning during business hours.

It has a 12-litre container which is said to facilitate extended working periods, and a tear-proof fleece filter bag that is claimed to hold more than twice the volume of dust as a paper filter.

Designed to take the place of a mop and bucket when cleaning in very confined areas is the BR 30/4 C Bp scrubber dryer. This unit requires no mains connection which means it can be used while the premises are in use without the risk of anyone tripping over cables.

The contact pressure of the roller brush is 10 times higher than that exerted with a mop during manual cleaning.

Latest product from Santoemma is Eveline, a patented system for cleaning and sanitising vertical surfaces, sanitary fixtures and floors.

This can be used in furnished and unfurnished areas of up to 200 square metres in size.

The system involves the spraying of a chemical solution on to all surfaces. Once this has taken effect it is rinsed away to remove the dirt and bacteria and the residual liquid is vacuumed up from the floors.

When used on hard floors the Eveline system allows the operator to spray and vacuum simultaneously or to spray, brush and then vacuum afterwards. In both cases hard floors are left completely dry within a few seconds and with little effort, according to Santoemma.

The Eveline system is said to avoid the issue of residual dirt on surfaces while the compact, lightweight equipment is easy to carry and store.
