The Nitrowise Advantage:

The Kromavis Nitrowise system sets itself apart by utilizing ionized nitrogen-enriched air maintained at a consistent temperature. This stabilizes the painting process and allows for better management of process variables, ultimately resulting in improved control over the quality of your spray-painting jobs. But that’s not all; this innovative technology offers several other key benefits that can help you overcome the challenges posed by rising energy and material costs.

Achieve 30% Saving on Paint Consumption:

Up to 30% paint saving – The Kromavis system decreases working air pressure up to 40%, due to the high velocity spray pattern of nitrogen as a carrier. This reduces overspray and creates up to  30% savings in paint consumption and warrants a less than 1 year return on investment.

Streamlined Operations:

With the Nitrowise system, you can significantly reduce the time required for spray painting jobs. The stable and controlled environment enabled by the nitrogen-enriched air allows for faster drying times, meaning you can complete more jobs in less time. This increased efficiency can help you accommodate more customers and boost revenue, even in the face of rising costs.

Improved Material Efficiency:

The Kromavis Nitrowise system ensures a more even and consistent paint application, which minimizes paint wastage. This improved material efficiency can help you get the most out of your paint supplies, allowing you to cut down on expenses related to material costs. In the long run, this translates into substantial savings and increased profit margins for your car body shop.

Easy Integration and Installation:

Another advantage of the Nitrowise system is its seamless integration and quick installation. By simply connecting it to your primary compressed air line, the system is ready to use. This means that you can start reaping the benefits of this innovative technology without having to invest in costly and time-consuming infrastructure upgrades.

As energy and material costs continue to rise, it’s more important than ever for South African car body shop owners to invest in solutions that can help them stay competitive and maintain profitability. The Kromavis Nitrowise spray painting system offers a simple yet effective way to achieve this by reducing energy consumption, streamlining operations, and improving material efficiency. Don’t let rising costs hold your business back; embrace the future of car body shop operations with the Nitrowise system today.
