PROCESS:

Cleaning is achieved by applying a diluted detergent solution directly to the exterior of the vehicle while simultaneously scrubbing with rotating brushes. This process is then repeated, without detergent to rinse the vehicle clean.

CONSTRUCTION:

The machine frame is a mild steel box section fabrication, which is hot dip galvanised to prevent corrosion. PVC spray screens surround the frame to contain water and chemical spray to a minimum. Low-density polyethylene brushes are used for both the horizontal and vertical brush shafts. Geared electric motor units drive movement of the brushes and gantry travel. All motors are protected to a level of IP6.6 from the ingress of water and all gear units are lifetime sealed with a fully synthetic lubricant to maximise service life. The electrical panel is controlled by a Microprocessor, which computes signals given from positional detectors and brush pressure sensors to precisely follow vehicle contours. All user controls are twenty four volts for user safety. A safety cut out is incorporated, this will sense a motor or top brush pressure overload, and stop the machine in the event of a problem. An indicator mounted on the control panel and will then show the type of fault that has occurred. The side brushes are pneumatically controlled to keep a constant balanced pressure on vehicle sides.
