SmartWasher

 

The SmartWasher Bioremediating Parts Washing System is both self-cleaning and deregulated. This is a green parts washer that works on tough jobs. A free 30-day trial is available.

 

How it Works:

  • The OzzyMat: Ozzy microbes, impregnated in the OzzyMat, are transported along with the OzzyJuice into the SmartWasher tank. Change the Ozzymat once per month to maintain clean Ozzyjuice. 
  • Heated OzzyJuice: OzzyJuice is a powerful, aqueous based  degreasing solution that is pH-neutral, non- hazardous, non-flammable, and non-toxic.
  • The Ozzy Microbes: These natural occurring Ozzy® microbes eat the grease, oil, and other contaminants and create a harmless by-product of carbon dioxide and water. This bioremediation process leaves the OzzyJuice clean and strong and ready to use time after time without the need to change, evacuate or haul away dirty washing fluid.
  • The 300 GPH Recirculating Pump: Pulls the OzzyJuice from the tank and sends it back through the nozzle and brush - ready to clean more dirty squeegees, flood bars, or even screens!


Available in the Following Models:

  • Mobile Parts Washer SW-23
  • Signature Parts Washer SW-25
  • SuperSink Parts Washer SW-28
