Prochem Europe has extended its reach into the truck mounted extraction
cleaning market with a successful sell-in of the Sapphire Scientific
A typical advocate for investing in Sapphire Scientific truck mounted
carpet cleaning is Keith Dugard of KD Contracts in Dover.
He has bought a Sapphire Scientific 370SS from the series'exclusive
distributor Prochem Europe for his new Renault Master van.
"My van was getting older
and like my previous truck mount was having a few major problems. So, my
overall investment was relatively significant. But the vehicle and
Sapphire are a perfect fit," he says.
Founded in 1980, as a general contract cleaning, KD Contracts switched
full-time to residential cleaning 15 years ago - "more profitable and
better appreciated," Keith sums up.
The company specialises in cleaning carpet, upholstery, Oriental and
area rugs, curtains and other soft furnishings.
Two years ago, Keith qualified with the IICRC to clean and seal marble,
stone, tile and grout, so in addition to looking after textiles, is able
maintain or restore hard flooring, also.
Keith had a team working with him but is back to working solo, which he
prefers for the added flexibility and simpler logistics and travels from
his Dover base throughout Kent and into neighbouring Surrey.
Thanks to its innovative
design, the Sapphire Scientific 370SS truck mounted carpet and
upholstery cleaning system has combined tried and tested componentry
with an ingenious use of space. Innovative heat exchange technology
simplifies the machine’s operation and maintenance and ensures a long
service life at a low cost.
And - most dramatically -
with a console width of only 16", the machine can fit into the
fast-growing small panel van sector.
The Sapphire Scientific
370SS offers the smallest cubic size truck mount on the market requiring
50% less cubic inches than competitive models, thereby freeing up
precious van space, and with all serviceable parts within 20 cm (8in) of
exterior. An easy-off panel gives fast access to service points though
fewer parts than any comparable unit means easier maintenance for this
High output is also a key
characteristic, a unique heat exchanger producing more usable heat
(121°C / 250° F max) with minimal heat loss to the environment, and a
last-step chemical injection maximising pump performance.
Additional features include
thermostatic temperature control allowing total temperature control up
to 250 degrees F; easy-to-use ergonomic control panel with waste pump
out switch; by-pass free operation saving solution and waste tank space.
Add a two year warranty and
full UK back-up with installation, service and training by a dedicated
Prochem team calling on over 30 years experience in truck mount supply,
and the Sapphire Scientific 370SS comes down to making solid business
sense for cleaners seeking more for less in a challenging market.
"The Sapphire is so much of
an improvement over the last machine I had," Keith Dugard sums up.
"Technology has advanced the boundaries of what the machine can do
performance wise and in terms of controllability. No wasted fuel, no
wasted water. It really is so very much better.
"I did a job at a local
restaurant in Deal where a greasy restaurant carpet came up like new
with one pass of the wand.
"I feel better about my
business, the image I am presenting and the job that I can perform."
