Our innovations:

WHEEL MASTER 4D wheel washer 

The Christ wheel wash system, tried and tested over several years, has received a considerable overhaul to meet future requirements in wheel washing, without cutting corners in terms of durability and reliability.

The large variations in wheel sizes and axle heights between small cars and SUVs have not been sufficiently covered by previous wheel wash systems. 

The threefold height adjustment on the wheel washer and simultaneous use of the traction drive on the rollover wash unit can now offer a more intensive wash, covering a maximum surface area depending on the detected wheel diameter. 

The wheel diameter is detected using a specially designed sensor unit on the vehicle. The WHEEL MASTER is now controlled using individually detected axle height and wheel diameter.

It uses:

  • 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



XXL foam curtain

This facility turns the foam application into a customer magnet.

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 activated via an LED lighting console in the gallery and becomes a multicoloured 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 rollover 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 for this 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.

It uses:

  • 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 rollover 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.

It uses:

  • Improved drying to the front and rear of the vehicle
  • Intelligent control based on vehicle contours
  • Reduced programme running times, greater capacity, increased sales & revenue



Super foam pistol for 3 wash programmes

The 'XXL foam' additional wash programme, having enjoyed years of success in the Christ wash bay, has now received a considerable overhaul.

The new XXL BUBBLEGUN super foam pistol brings the customer a perfect foam formation and handling is child's play.

The customer can now use the super foam pistol in 3 wash programmes: Foam pre-wash, Foam polish, Foam wax.

This makes the self-service wash bay system more attractive and increases the average wash price.

In terms of operating costs, the new lance and specially adapted process technology reduce water and chemical product consumption considerably.

It uses: 

  • Excellent foam formation for maximum customer retention
  • Up to 75% less freshwater consumption and up to 50% less chemical consumption compared to standard foam lance systems
  • More attractive wash programmes and higher average wash price

AIR-FIT Fragrance dispenser system

Fragrance and freshness for your unit

Fresh fragrance is synonymous with cleanliness & a recognition factor. A special fragrance concept is therefore a central marketing component for vehicle washes.

With the pneumatic fragrance dispenser AIR-FIT from Christ, the washing bay/wash centre or self-service wash bay can be scented as desired.

The dispenser can either be activated by the car wash system, a time switch or manually. Compressed air and power supply is required on site for the AIR-FIT. If activation is required through the wash unit, a control signal is required on the connection point on site.

The spray duration and intensity are adjustable as desired. For a spray interval of one second, 1 L is enough for approx. 8000 spray actions depending on the set pressure.

AIR-FIT fragrance concentrates from Christ Car Care are  available in practical interchangeable bottles and also in refill canisters.

The following fragrances are available:

  • AIR-FIT Alpine
  • AIR-FIT Cocoloco
  • AIR-FIT Wintertime
  • AIR-FIT Fruit
  • AIR-FIT Lemonkick
  • AIR-FIT Flower
  • AIR-FIT Sunrise
