Gantry-Style

Wash System

A Revolution in Automated Large Vehicle Washing

Powerful sprays contour vehicle shape in strategic sequence to optimize cleaning. Advanced automation yields consistent results for customers

Flexible

Customize wash programs for different vehicle types and soil conditions

Environmentally Friendly

Responsible recycled water and solids management systems means less water used, and discharge water that meets sanitary requirements

A Smart Touchless Wash System

An advanced gantry style washing system offers custom solutions tailored to specific applications. Our leading edge technologies allow our systems to be taught how to wash a vehicle, a progressive automated solution that replicates manual washing

Advanced Scanning Technology

Vehicle Scan

An array of sensors passes over the vehicle to create a 3D shape profile of the vehicle. The collected data is analyzed to automatically locate key regions across the vehicle.

Shape Analysis

According to the configuration of the wash program, key regions are located on the raw, scanned shape. Regions can be added, removed and adjusted. Paths for the profiler spray bar and side washers are also generated, which can be adjusted.

Wash Sequence

A list of modular wash operations is used to orchestrate the various steps in washing the vehicle. These can be linked to located vehicle regions to engage different wash behaviors. They can be edited, duplicated, rearranged, etc. to achieve the ideal wash.

Automation

Sophisticated algorithms translate geometric paths and wash instructions into smooth, multi-axis robotic motion, synchronized with spray control and articulation.

Innovative Features

SCANNING

Scanning technology to identify the vehicle shape and key regions

POWER SPRAYS

Combination high-volume and high-pressure oscillating spray heads to match soil conditions

TEACHING

Ability to teach machine how to wash vehicle and save as a wash program

PROFILER

Fast, efficient cleaning of profile surfaces with dynamic contouring of our 3-axis robotic spray bar

WIDTH ADJUST

Width adjustment option to maintain optimal spray distance for varying vehicle widths

CHEMISTRY

Hot water on-demand multi-chemical spray applications allow for specialized cleaning of various surfaces

Washing Features

Powerful high-volume sprays remove solids from the undercarriage and lower sides of the vehicle as it drives in.

1.

Drive-in Pre-wash

After the vehicle parks in position, longitudinal undercarriage sprays can be engaged which sweep from side to side.

2.

Oscillating Chassis Wash

The kingpin of the operation, it moves across the length of the vehicle in multiple passes to conduct the various phases of the wash process.

3.

Gantry

This spray bar is equipped with various sprays and contours the vehicle surface. Anti-collision sensors stand guard for vehicle protection.

4.

Profiler

Side sprays are mounted on trolleys that automatically position themselves to maintain ideal wash distance as vehicle widths vary.

5.

Width-Adjusting Side Sprays

Side spray columns can also pivot fore & aft to better wash certain vehicle surfaces. Optional X-angle spray bars can be installed to wash cylindrical trailers.

6.

Pivoting and Angling

Using the sheer mass and inertia of large amounts of recyclable water, solids are forcibly removed from vehicle surfaces.

7.

High-Volume Sprays

Powerful jets of water at high pressures do the work of lifting the grime that has been released by applied chemicals. 

8.

High-Pressure Sprays

For even coverage of pressurized sprays, the nozzle assemblies sweep up & down as the gantry moves across the vehicle.

9.

Oscillating Spray Heads

Hot water on-demand multi-chemical sprays allow for specialized cleaning of various surfaces, and can be optimized using different nozzle types.

10.

Chemical Sprays

An optional finishing step is to apply reverse-osmosis water to all or part of the vehicle to achieve a spot-free shine.

User-Friendly Software

Our POS software was developed from the ground-up to best support the commercial trucking world. For example, bills can be split between tractor and trailer where they represent different companies. Sales history, financial reports, and tools to export data for accounting are also included.

Point-of-Sale

Our proprietary HMI (Human-Machine Interface) technology was created to provide mobile control of wash equipment. Employing the familiar touch interactions of today's smart gadgets, it is a seamless window into the automation of the wash system.

Modern Control Interface

Technical difficulties are inevitable, but thankfully we provide supportive tools to get up and running as pain-free as possible. From realtime faults and messages with troubleshooting tips, to remote monitoring and tech support, downtime can be kept to a minimum.

Troubleshooting Support

Cleaning Chemistry

  • Our systems employ various detergent formulations to meet an array of different cleaning challenges, from etching acids to alkaline-based soaps.

  • Chemical concentrations can be varied via speed-controlled metering pumps.

  • On-demand hot water is used to deliver chemicals for maximize cleaning effectiveness

  • Nozzle types (foaming vs. non-foaming, spray pattern, etc) are expertly selected for optimal washing per application

Recycled Water Management System

Our specialized equipment works in the background to recover as much reusable water as possible. Debris and silt are separated, and the remaining water is treated to prevent stagnation.

Water Recycling

Whatever dirt is carried into the bay on a truck must eventually be removed from the system. Our patented approach to separating, de-watering and preparing solids for removal makes dealing with waste as painless and inexpensive as possible.

Solids Management

If you have special waste water and/or solids removal requirements, we can engineer custom solutions to meet your unique requirements. From settling pits to automated leeching fields, we can make it work!
