Problems faced

Lavateh provides a self-service car wash application for which the customer use a hand-held water-spray device to clean the car. A spray nozzle is attached at the end of the device. Lavateh was looking for a more durable solution than the steel spray nozzles as they quickly deteriorated.



Lavateh decided to switch to Ikeuchi’s VNP nozzles and were very satisfied with the results.

We really like that the VNP nozzle is so durable. The ceramic tip holds the shape of the spray for very long. This also means that the water and chemical mixture remains at a stable level. In our experience, steel nozzles change fast which leads to a higher use of water”.

Damir Basevina, CEO of Lavateh


After switching to VNP ceramic nozzles, Lavateh has achieved a significant  reduction of water and chemical use in their car wash applications. In addition, the durability of the nozzles has led to a cost reduction since they don’t need to be replaced as often.
