Scrubber dryer launched for contract cleaning sector

The SC450 is the latest example of Nilfisk’s constant drive to become the preferred choice, by working with its customers to develop a product that meets all their needs. The new SC450 has been developed in conjunction with the contract cleaner sector aimed at reducing the total cost of ownership for end users. With a highly competitive price tag, high durability and low maintenance the new SC450 is a sound long term investment for the cost conscious.

However this new cost minimising scrubber dryer still boasts the high product quality that has been the basis of Nilfisk’s strong reputation over the past century.

A 40 litre tank capacity, 53cm scrub width and long run time of up to 2.8 hours on normal scrub makes the unit extremely productive. Up to 2120 square metres can be cleaned on a single battery charge.

The new SC450 is also extremely easy to use. A low noise level makes it ideal for daytime cleaning even in sensitive areas. Squeegee blades can be used on both sides to reduce consumable cost whilst the QuickChange squeegee system allows for a quick change with no tools required. With 34 kg of downward pressure the SC450 very suitable for heavy duty tasks.

Rugged reliability has not been forgotten as the Nilfisk development team builds on over one century’s experience of scrubber dryer design. The polyethylene corrosion proof roto-moulded tank is crack, dent and chemical resistant. A dedicated box contains most electric components providing additional safety, reliability and ease of service.

Water and detergent usage is minimised by Nilfisk Eco-Solution, a simple way to reduce consumption and remain eco-friendly. Furthermore, the recovery tank with EasyFlow drain-hose and squeezable section increase performance all round. To prevent overflow, a float ball shuts off the vacuum motor when the tank is full. When in neutral mode, the SC450 automatically turns off brushes and water. Additionally if the unit should hit an obstacle the squeegees are automatically released.
