Pulse Modulated Solution Control

Using BOOST® Technology, cleaning solution is introduced in front of the rectangular scrubbing pad with Clarke’s patented Pulse Modulated Solution Control. The orbital action contains the cleaning solution in the pad and carries it for the full length of the pad. Compared to traditional disc scrubbers that sling water away from the pad, BOOST’s efficient use of the cleaning solution results in water and chemical savings of 50 to 70 percent. Using less water during cleaning ensures you are working productively rather than emptying and refilling the scrubber tanks.

BOOST® Technology: Orbital Scrubbing for Efficient Cleaning Results

For years, the most productive way to clean and maintain smooth tile or concrete floors was with a disc automatic scrubber. Depending on the size of the scrub path, there could be dual counter-rotating pads or brushes. Operating at 200-300 rpm, and requiring an increased pad pressure, acceptable results are achieved by a disc scrubber.

With BOOST Technology, a rectangular pad provides consistent contact across the cleaning path. Whether on a floor machine or autoscrubber, the BOOST pad provides more contact area of the pad on the floor surface, cleaning more uniformly and more consistently than disc scrubbing. The rectangular shape to the BOOST scrub head allows the operator to clean immediately along the edge of baseboards, as well in corners.

Next week we will take a closer look at Pulse Modulated Solution Control, the orbital action behind BOOST technology.
