Car Wash Equipment
March 1, 2006
A Car wash system requires certain sophisticated equipment that speeds up the process of cleaning. A variety of car wash equipment and a large number of dealers are available in the market, so choosing selections for your business should be made after a careful study of your requirements. Dealers and manufacturers with good track records will ensure lower maintenance costs and higher efficiency in your car wash.
The most important equipment, of course, is the conveyor, which takes the car through different stages of washing and to the other end looking as good as new. The correlator will ensure the safe and smooth entry of the car into the conveyor and is as important as the conveyor itself.
High-pressure equipment is the key to a speedy and effective car wash. High-pressure foam, water, and soap sprays clean every corner of the car as nothing else can. McNeil’s, a trusted manufacturer of car wash equipment since 1982, has complex high-pressure systems like the Under Chassis Wash, Rinse Arch, Eliminator Wheel Cleaner and Foam Hawk that take care of the cleaning of almost all parts of a car. Their other exclusive products include wash curtains; foam brushes for wheels, sides and tires; dryers; and tunnel systems.
Tunnel systems guarantee the smooth progress of the cars through the car wash systems in the bay. The conveyor runs through the tunnel system, where foamers, underbody washes, top brushes, air dryers, tire treatments, and rain arches are fitted at different points, and the car on the conveyor is cleaned step by step. Fuller’s Car Wash Equipment Co. offers a range of tunnel equipment that uses soft-cloth and touch-free accessories, spot-free rinses and central vacuum systems.
Support equipment for car wash systems include Hydraulic power packs, washer extractors, water reclaim systems, air compressors, vacuums, high- and low-pressure pump stations, and hot water heaters. These form the specific parts that initiate the cleaning process using brushes, dryers and foamers. All the equipment requires a heavy power source and a digital control system to ensure smooth functioning. These wash control systems automate the cleaning process and decide on the pressure, density and air compression used for car wash, all of which are essential to all types of car wash systems.
