Enforcer - Features

Enforcer carpet, upholstery, rug, curtain & hard floor cleaning machine

Introducing the most versatile and advanced carpet, upholstery, rug & curtain cleaning machine Ashbys have ever created.

Built to your specification without compromise in the UK. Designed for the professional cleaner who requires only the very best. The Enforcer is packed with overwhelming features that an experienced operator will truly appreciate.

Some portables require 2 power leads just to run their vacuum and pump system. This means if you haven’t got access to 2 plug sockets, you can’t use your machine. The 135, 400 and 600 psi versions of the Enforcer are wired to run the vacuum and pump system from one power lead and any chosen heater system from a second (unless otherwise stated) – allowing you to use your machine when you only have access to one plug socket (for example - common part areas etc).

Fully guttered body construction protects against water damage to electronics. The Enforcer is shower-proof - just lock the front castors, extend your hoses inside and leave the Enforcer outside.

In-series vacuum motors - for highest vacuum strength

A vacuum motor contains a set of fans mounted within the vacuum motor itself, pulling air to create vacuum uplift. These fans are known as ‘stages’. The more stages a vacuum motor contains, the more power is generated.

Get the driest possible results

We concentrate power into our vacuum systems by mounting our double vacuum motors 'in-series' - this means the second vacuum motor pulls through the first, dramatically increasing the vacuum power. This doesn't happen with 'in-parallel' vacuum systems. Our in-series vacuum systems allow longer hose runs with minimal loss of suction.

Clean fast, thoroughly and without moving your machine

We use this increased vacuum power to pull air through the material or fibres being cleaned. In-parallel vacuum systems rely on high airflow, however without the power to pull air long distances through multiple hose sets, narrow vacuum slots on cleaning tools and then the fabric of item being cleaned, there can be no fast air movement which is needed to remove soilage and cleaning solution. We believe our in-series vacuum system gives you more vacuum power.

The Enforcers unique combination of high performance pumps, in-series vacuum motors and built-in heating systems allow you to move the wand up to 4 times faster - just as quickly as if you were using a truck-mount. Additional dry wand passes are not necessary. Remember - the more powerful your vacuum, the more fast and effective the clean.

Connect your 2 inch / 51 mm vacuum hose by pushing cuff directly over Enforcers 2 inch / 51 mm vacuum spigot.

Connect your 1-1/2 inch / 38 mm vacuum hose by pushing cuff directly into the Enforcers 2 inch / 51 mm vacuum spigot.

Will connect direct to either a standard 1-1/2 inch / 38 mm or 2 inch / 51 mm vacuum hose

No need for an interconnector. 1-1/2 inch vacuum hose pushes directly into the vacuum spigot on the recovery tank and 2 inch will push over it. Simple.

Pump options from 135 psi high flow-rate up to 600 psi

with optional remote control, allowing you to change tools fast, without the need to return to the machine to switch off the pump. Most systems incorporate both a quick adjust Flow Control Valve and a Pressure Regulator Valve, for total control of water spray pressure and flow-rate.

Ashbys unique Flow Control Valve - quicker drying times on upholstery

Our Flow Control Valve gives you drier results when cleaning upholstery. To understand how, you will need to know why it differs from the Pressure Regulator Valve.

Pressure Regulator Valve

The solution pump in an extraction carpet cleaning machine, sprays cleaning solution at high pressure into the item being cleaned. Pressure Regulator Valves are standard throughout the industry and allow the operator to reduce the pumps working pressure (PSI), whilst maintaining maximum flow-rate. This is ideal when using a low pressure-rated wand or hand tool for cleaning carpeted areas. However, we recommend using the Ashbys unique Flow Control Valve to reduce the flow-rate and working pressure, when cleaning upholstery or mattresses with a hand / upholstery tool.

Flow Control Valve 

When compared to the Pressure Regulator Valve, reducing your pump pressure to 135 psi using the Flow Control Valve puts out less cleaning solution, so you can work drier than ever before. Our Flow Control Valve quickly reduces your working pressure (PSI) AND lowers the litres per minute volume (L/min). Use the Flow Control Valve to reduce the risk of over-wetting and achieve the fastest drying times when cleaning upholstery or mattresses. The combination of our Flow Control and Pressure Regulator Valve gives you an unparalleled level of control.

When switching between cleaning tools, the Flow Control Valve allows the operator to instantly depressurise the solution hose. Simply turn off the pump and open the Flow Control Valve to release any backpressure. You can now change to your chosen tool safely, quickly and easily.

Throughout the carpet cleaning industry, regardless of equipment manufacturer, all 400 psi water / solution pump heads are made from aluminium. All pump heads in Ashbys 400 psi pump systems have been coated internally with EnduraGuard™ for maximum chemical resistance and lifespan - unique to Ashbys Cleaning Equipment. No other manufacturer offers this exclusive protective coating to their pump heads.

400 psi models feature a heavy duty non-maintenance induction motor. Induction motors are superior to standard brush motors as they do not have carbon brushes which wear-out and stop the motor working, which will operate up to 400 ft / 122 metres of solution hose.

One E-Coated part and one EnduraGuard™ treated part were placed in an acidic solution consisting of 13% Sulfuric Acid by volume. The parts were left in the solution for a total of 80 hours at room temperature. After exposure, the parts were rinsed and dried for inspection. The photos illustrate that the E-Coat part had large areas of peeling as well as severe areas of corrosion, particularly on the inside of the part.

The ultimate set-up. Auto-fill keeps your solution tank topped up with water at the temperature pre-set on your heater thermostat. The gravity auto-drain adds no weight to the build, connecting directly to the recovery tank dump valve and will activate when the Enforcer is switched off. If you don’t require auto-drain or fill on a certain job, don’t attach the fill or drain hoses – just use as normal.

The remote control on / off means you can remotely switch off both vacuum motors and the water pump on,

your Enforcer allowing you to change tools (ie – from a carpet wand to a stair or upholstery tool and back again) and allows the gravity auto-drain to empty your recovery tank.

When you turn it back on, soft-start technology switches your two vacuum motors on individually with a time-delay, to avoid a power-surge. Your heating system can be switched on or off at the touch of a button. Total control remotely with up to a 30 metre omnidirectional range.

Leave the shower-proof Enforcer outside, connect to a standpipe, attach gravity auto-drain hose and switch on your heater. Imagine the time-saving on every job, never having to fill, empty or return to your Enforcer!

but much lower initial outlay, running and servicing costs – plus the benefit of total job access. Get more cleaning power for £ invested.

 

Double vacuum motor options up to 2 x 7.2 inch 3 Stage Heavy Duty Vacuum Motors

The Enforcers twin vacuum system is ‘in-series’ not ‘in-parallel’. This is very important as an in-series arrangement provides more vacuum strength which is essential for extracting more dirt and faster drying times. We have various configurations of vacuum motors from manufacturers including Lamb Ametek. All are fan-cooled and fitted with an air-seal to help protect against water ingress. Our strongest vacuum system allows the Enforcer to operate up to 200 ft / 61 metres of vacuum hose, clean faster and get the lowest drying times possible.

Optional direct solution pump feed

Connect your Enforcer to any external water tank without the need for an additional water supply pump. 

Two powerful 3 Kw heater options

Total heat flexibility and control. Both are protected by a low-level safety cut off and heat-regulated via adjustable thermostat’s. The V2 SteamMate inline heat exchanger heater option provides instant heat up to an incredible 110 Deg C. The 3 Kw immersion-style heater / pre-heater system gives you heat up to 70 Deg C. Heat performance from the Enforcer is better than any other.

From the connectors, control knobs, top-mounted easy-access switch panel, cooling fan, pressure gauge and with the push-on / pull-off angled spout removed, even the dump valve for emptying waste water - everything is recessed and protected. The Enforcer is designed to be tough and durable.

The Enforcer has a large fully useable 40 Litre / 10.5 Gallon (US) / 8.8 Gallon (UK) volume recovery tank, allowing the operator to spend more time cleaning and less time emptying dirty water.
with extra large access and funnel design, mounted clear of machine switch panel.

Some machines trap heat generated inside the electronic compartment to try to warm up their cleaning solution.

Unfortunately to achieve maximum life and efficiency from all electronic components it is essential to keep them cool and dry – especially vacuum motors. The Enforcer is not only fully guttered to protect against water ingress, but is well vented and fan-cooled to keep all electronic components at their lowest working temperature, meaning they last longer.
