Coldwater’s EZ eco smart cleaner is a quantum improvement in wire and press felt cleaning compared to oscillating showers. It uses traversing high pressure rotating heads that deliver 150 bar (2,200 psi) operating pressure, plus shear forces from rotation. The 120 mm (4.72”) diameter heads deliver twice as much cleaned area in the same amount of time as traditional oscillating showers.
