Otto Christ AG – More than CAR WASH
As an innovation leader, Otto Christ AG presents the latest technology in roll over wash units, self-service wash systems, wash tunnels as well as in water recycling systems, Christ-Xpress and Christ Car Care.
Under the banner 'Christ – More than CAR WASH' the latest vehicle wash solutions will be presented to a wide audience. Customers will get an impressive demonstration of how Christ, as a leading innovator, offers unique solutions for a successful wash business. This means a focus on: simple equipment operation, improved wash and drying performance, low operating costs, the wash experience for the end user, direct provision and service in the chemical sector and faster, more cost-effective customer service.
Roll over wash unit GENIUS VITESSE
GENIUS is a proven 3 cylinder roll over wash unit from the Premium segment for a high wash flow rate and with extensive equipment options. It is characterised by an effective high-pressure pre wash system with oscillating nozzles at the front which enables wash times to be reduced by up to 20% through a clever combination of processes.
GENIUS is suitable for sites with a high customer frequency as well as for innovative operators who want to offer a special service in the market and is for many operators the first choice in the Christ portfolio.
Roll over wash unit AQUATUS PRIME
The AQUATUS PRIME is the new top-of-the line model in the Christ line-up and one of the most innovative roll over wash systems available on the market. With this unit the wash customer has a free choice between a touchless wash and a Vitesse wash with wash cylinders. It is also possible to combine wash programmes which include an highly intensive pre wash with the touchless equipment. AQUATUS PRIME therefore offers a previously unknown flexibility and enables its operators to cover the market from fast basic wash to the premium segment. At the same time there is the possibility of significantly increasing the average wash price through new wash offers.
Christ WASH APP
Car wash directly from your smartphone
Christ WASH APP offers an easy start to self-service wash.
The wash customer installs the Christ WASH APP on his smartphone and selects the desired wash unit on the display which is directly connected to the system. After choosing the desired wash programme the wash unit can be directly started via your mobile phone. Payment is easily done by credit card. The invoice will be directly sent via e-mail.
For the plant operator, Christ WASH APP offers a very cost-effective opportunity to equip its product range with a highly innovative solution and create added value for the customer. It should be mentioned that thanks to attractive framework agreements you will only have a small initial investment and a cost-effective operation. This makes the Christ WASH APP an interesting solution, especially for sites with low wash figures or as a supplement to normal operation at manned sites.
The system is highly automated and does not require constant maintenance. The provider gains access to mobile marketing opportunities for example to grant Christ WASH APP users exclusive services such as price discounts or to advertise special offers directly to potential customers.
Christ WASH APP can be used with roll over wash units and self-service wash systems.
- Easy car wash via smartphone (also for self-service wash mode)
- Very cost-effective investment and operation
- Mobile marketing platform integrated
- Available for roll over wash units and self-service lance wash systems
4D wheel wash device
For many years the Christ wheel wash system has been consequently and continuously developed to fulfil the requirements for the wheel wash without forgoing the robustness and reliability.
Previous wheel wash systems were not able to cover the big differences between the wheel sizes and the axle heights from the small vehicles to the SUV.
Depending on the calculated diameter of the wheel, the triple height adjustment of the wheel wash device and the parallel use of the traction drive of the roll over wash unit enable the intensive wash with a maximum surface coverage.
The diameter of the wheel is calculated on the vehicle by means of a specially developed sensor technology. The WHEEL MASTER is individually controlled according to the calculated axle height and the diameter of the wheel.
- Optimum wheel wash result for all wheel sizes
- 4D technology with 3 working axes & mobility
- Continuation of tried and tested wheel wash system
- High pressure pre wash with inclined wheel washed discs
FOAM SPLASH, XXL-foam curtain
This facility turns the foam application into a customer attraction.
The full surface application is provided via a mobile spray tube in the head of the wash unit with drip tray and foam generator. The application is also done via an LED lighting console and becomes a multi-coloured experience.
During the development phase, the focus was on ensuring that two important points are covered during the application process. The foam application must not extend wash times compared to the previous system. This was achieved successfully thanks to the special tube. The roll over wash unit does not have an extended wash time with this optional fitting and achieves the same capacity as previously.
Contour following systems require more time because the lifting/lowering times and scan times need to be included.
The large width of the spray tube also means very wide vehicles such as off-road vehicles can be fully covered from above. This means that the material consumption with FOAM SPLASH remains low.
FOAM SPLASH with the very narrow spray distance creates an optically ideal visible foam curtain, actively perceived by wash customers. The adjusted delivery and special foam consistency also makes this system relatively insensitive to wind. Otherwise, this could restrict function in the autumn with open doors.
- New wash experience for customers
- Foam application over the entire vehicle width
- Faster overflow without capacity loss
- No dripping during the drying process
- Insensitive to wind
Variable high performance roof fans
In order to improve the drying performance in the roll over wash unit still further, the TURBO DRY option was developed as a variable drying system. This not only provides more performance for fan drying, but intelligently controls this performance. This means the TURBO DRY option can control fan performance in three levels.
Easy dry vehicle surfaces such as the engine hood and vehicle roof are dried in the 'ECO DRY' mode.
Vehicle areas requiring higher drying performance are dried in the 'OPTI-DRY' mode. Here, fan performance is increased in order to remove residual water more effectively.
Vehicle drying is complex to the front and rear of the vehicle because a lot of residual water can gather here. Maximum fan performance is utilised in the 'TURBO DRY' mode. This is approx. 30% higher than a standard fan. Residual water is removed with particular efficiency.
Operators looking to set themselves apart in the drying experience with a PREMIUM drying service need look no further than the TURBO DRY option.
- Improved drying in the rear area
- Intelligent control based on vehicle contours
- Reduced programme running times, greater capacity, increased sales & revenue
SKIP-XS single self-service wash system
The new single self-service wash system SKIP-XS rounds off Christ's lower range of self-service wash systems, while offering the same high-quality components and the proven operating concept of the larger self-service wash systems. The compact technology container, optionally available in stainless steel, is particularly quick to assemble. SKIP-XS is therefore particularly suitable for the use of remaining areas.
The new XXL-BUBBLEGUN option for the Christ self-service wash system convinces with an attractive foam formation and diverse applications which increase the wash result and the average price.
