KD 'Masters' Sapphire

Prochem Europe has extended its reach into the truck mounted extraction cleaning market with a successful sell-in of the Sapphire Scientific range. 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,” said Dugard. “So, my overall investment was relatively significant. But the vehicle and Sapphire are a perfect fit.”

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 is claimed to be the smallest cubic size truck mount on the market requiring 50% less cubic inches than competitive models, thereby freeing up precious van space, and all serviceable parts are within 20cm of the exterior. An easy-off panel gives fast access to service points though fewer parts than any comparable unit means easier maintenance for this versatile machine.

High output is also a key characteristic, a unique heat exchanger producing more usable heat with minimal heat loss to the environment, and a last-step chemical injection maximising pump performance. Purchasers can also add to many other features 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.

“The Sapphire is so much of an improvement over the last machine I had,” continued Dugard. “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.”
