Smith Bros & Webb, the leading provider of train and commercial vehicle automated washing systems, is to launch an improved model of its Britannia under chassis wash machine.
Following extensive research and development, the company has completely re-designed its original Chassis Master machine which is already renowned as the best under chassis wash currently on the market.
The new Chassis Master retains Smith Brothers & Webb’s proven wash jet system and offers both lower operating costs and increased reliability. It also dispenses with the need for hot water or chemicals.
Microprocessor-controlled, the new machine features twin shaft high pressure plunger pump (dual) operating at up to 45 bar pressure at the jets and has a running frame constructed in hot dip galvanised steel. It has been re-designed to drive without the use of cable drums or being pulled under its own services.
Andy Barracliffe, Director, of Britannia, said: "While the Britannia Chassis Master is recognised as best in its class, we are not resting on our laurels and are continually looking for ways in which to improve our products.
"We have listened to our customers and incorporated features in the new Chassis Master that we hope will meet – and exceed – their expectations. Businesses are always looking for ways to cut operating costs and the new Chassis Master will reduce running costs while still offering exceptional wash performance."
The Chassis Master can be constructed to a customer’s requirements in varying lengths, starting from a 12-metre wash track, then extending to 15 metres, 18 metres, and upwards in steps of 3 metres.
For customers who require unrivalled reliability regardless of winter weather conditions, there is the option of fitting Britannia’s frost protection system to their bespoke Chassis Master machine.
Smith Brothers & Webb has a world-wide reputation for its unsurpassed quality of automated washing machines for bus, truck, municipal vehicle and train washing machines that are manufactured at its premises in Alcester, Warwickshire.
With more than 1,900 systems installed in the UK, a percentage of which are worldwide, the company has its own team of engineers and offers support and maintenance packages that ensure the smooth running of its machines, with minimal downtime.
