PDQ Laserwash 360 Plus - Touchless Automatic Car Washes
The newest LaserWash® in-bay automatic car wash raises the standard for touchless automatic car washes. With Revenue Enhancement and Total Cost of Ownership improvements being the main focus, this vehicle wash system delivers the industry’s best Return on Investment. Smart 360™ Technology enables the car wash system to be responsive to the dynamic conditions in the wash bay and allows it to “think for itself”, increasing up-time and optimizing the wash process.
Substantially faster wash speeds compared to other automatic car washes lead to increases in vehicle throughput and shorter lines that will make your customers happy. Simplified machine design and lower energy and utility usages reduce operating costs leading to a more profitable car wash operation
The LaserWash® 360 Plus automatic car wash system allows more opportunities to enhance your revenue stream with new service offerings and improve car wash package differentiation to better align with your customer’s needs. New services include; Front Bug Prep, dedicated Super Sealant applicators, FlashDry® rinse and enhanced arch control for better detergent coverage and improved bug removal. Substantially faster wash speeds will increase your vehicle throughput – reducing a customer’s total time at the site and putting a smile on their face.
Lower Cost of Ownership
Reductions in water, electricity and chemicals drop right to your bottom line while simpler parts replacements and easier troubleshooting reduce on-going maintenance costs. The Smart 360™ Technology system dramatically reduces the interaction needed by an attendant while the non-corrosive structure fights the harsh wash environment for the long-term. A “keep-it-simple” design goal is realized by significant reductions in sensors, swivels, valves and the use of common electronic parts throughout.
Return on Investment
With the PDQ LaserWash® 360 Plus your Return on Investment is a combination of Wash Volume Increases, improved Revenue per Wash and reduced Costs per Car. A quick pay-back from your initial investment, the piece of mind of knowing that you have a new machine and the true “Green Savings” from a faster, simpler and more efficient system confirm the profit increasing potential to your bottom line.
Typical first-year impacts show car wash volume increases from faster speeds and quicker lines, revenue increases per wash by the addition of new services and the ability to better differentiate wash packages and cost decreases from chemical, water and electricity reductions, lower maintenance costs and less attendant labor.
Laserwash Auto Xpress
With more than 10,000 LaserWashes shipped worldwide, PDQ Manufacturing Inc. takes great pride in being the leader in the in-bay automatic vehicle wash industry. We are dedicated to providing wash operators with the most innovative equipment that exemplifies our tradition of Performance, Dependability and Quality. With the introduction of our new LaserWash AutoXpress, PDQ now offers an affordable automatic car wash designed exclusively for the auto dealer market incorporating the most advanced touch-free technology. The LaserWash AutoXpress provides you and your customers with quick, exceptional cleaning that is unsurpassed by any other touch-free wash in the auto dealer industry.
Lower Cost of Ownership
As car wash operating costs continue to rise, auto dealers are taking a much closer look at electrical, water, chemical and maintenance expenses to reduce their costs. The LaserWash AutoXpress was designed with this in mind: minimizing water requirements, reducing electrical consumption through the incorporation of variable frequency drives and lowering chemical usage by ensuring that the chemical is applied to the vehicle and not sprayed on the wash bay floor.
- Easy loading process
- Fast wash speeds with up to 23 vehicles per hour
- Low fresh water consumption with as little as 21 gallons/wash
- Touch-free washing eliminates brush contact with vehicles, minimizing damages
- Cleans all production vehicles even your largest SUV’s and trucks, including dually’s
- No hydraulic systems, which are prone to leaks
- Simple design assists in lowering maintenance expenses
- Local service for quick response and maximum up-time
PDQ has pioneered a new industry defining vehicle cleaning method with the ProTouch® Tandem. This superior wash system incorporates both touch-free and friction, giving operators who prefer the “clean” produced by friction systems a new choice. The ProTouch Tandem’s full-body detergent coverage and simplified two brush engineering provides consistent cleaning performance with minimal brush contact. On average, the ProTouch Tandem touches the vehicle up to 70% less than five brush car wash systems on the market.
With the widest top brush coverage in the industry, the foam brushes are torque sensitive to monitor the contour of the vehicle and provide low-force cleaning power. The side-profiling, high-pressure wash arms effectively remove stubborn soil from the vehicle’s surface. Plus, the three stage wheel cleaning system includes chemical application, rotating soft rim scrubbers and high pressure wheel blasters.
The patent-pending ProTouch Tandem two-bridge design allows multiple cleaning processes to take place at one time speeding up the wash, versus a linear process common with most other friction systems. The belt driven bridges work in tandem to easily glide over the vehicle, adjusting their speeds and covering gaps to ensure the vehicle is completely covered. The ProTouch Tandem is also capable of washing oversized SUV’s and dually trucks. Unlike other friction type systems, the expansive foam top and single rotational side brush configuration creates an entirely open wash bay.
Advanced Tire & Wheel Scrubbers
New Triplex Wheel System technology takes tire scrubbing to a new level of customer satisfaction. During the process, each tire receives a chemical application allowing for dwell time, next the wheel rim receives an intense circular rotational scrubbing, and then the full wheel receives a high pressure blast.
PDQ’s FlashDry system adds virtually no additional time for dryer service. The three step process begins with the back bridge applying a protectant. Next the front bridge applies a spot free rinse with rain arch, which is instantly followed by forced air from the integrated dryer. The high velocity air keeps the rinse water moving in rapid motion across the vehicle, not allowing it to settle on the vehicles surface.
