What makes a great scrubber-dryer?
There are lots of different things that make a really great industrial scrubber-dryer, but some key points to consider include the scrubbing technique, suction system and chemical dosing options.
There are two recognised scrubbing principles for industrial scrubber dryers: disc brushes and cylindrical brushes). Disc brushes have much greater floor surface contact, higher down pressure and more economical water use, resulting in a more aggressive cleaning action compared to cylindrical brush systems. On the other hand, cylindrical brush systems can simultaneously scrub and sweep, collecting some loose debris in a hopper before the water is removed to do two jobs in one. However, this increased productivity needs to be weighed against the comparatively higher rotational speed of the brushes which wears the bristles down quicker.
Any water left on the floor after cleaning is a considerable slip risk and will contain dirt; therefore for the best cleaning results a great scrubber-dryer should leave the floor bone dry virtually immediately. Curved squeegee bars rather than straight versions tend to wipe the surface cleaner and direct solution towards the centre of the squeegee more effectively, placing it where the suction is highest.
