Nilfisk SC500

The Nilfisk SC500 walk-behind scrubber dryer is carefully designed to improve productivity and drive down your total cleaning costs. These significant benefits are achieved through more ease-of-use and a series of technical features enabling daytime cleaning and the most effective use of water and detergent. A reliable choice for cleaning companies, hospitals, schools, offices, supermarkets, shops, sports centers, restaurants, hotels, and production floors.

Productivity is taken to a new level by the automatic adjustment of the water/detergent solution flow according to the speed of the machine. By using this control, which ensures a consistent cleaning result and an optimized consumption of water and chemicals, the operator can focus on getting the job done.

Cleaning costs are reduced due to several features. The sustainable Nilfisk Ecoflex system offers very flexible use of detergent, and also water-only cleaning, just by pushing a button. Also driving down costs is the opportunity to introduce more daytime cleaning due to the remarkably low sound level of the SC500.
