General Product Description

Allied Car Wash Service's (ACWS) "Next Gen" tire dressing machine is a product that applies a tire shine chemical to automotive tires which results in a wet or glossy look. The unit is built on a very sturdy Stainless Steel Frame designed to resist corrosion & give many years of service.


Industry Use

The tire shine product is used in carwash tunnels as an upgrade service, typically sold separately or bundled with other upgrade services, for an added charge.

ACWS's "Next Gen" Product Details

This new concept of applicator solves some of the problems plaguing previous designs with the following points:

  • Nozzles or small hole drilled manifolds are problematic for plugging up ----Solutions is to use neither but to apply with full wide open ports
  • Run off from brush coating the tunnel exit & driveway ----------Solution is a VFD driven tightly controlled hydraulic system, backed by a surrounding specially groved shell, to constantly agitate and distribute chemical all over the bursh thus not allowing to run off.
  • Uneven application ------------Solution is the VFD/Hydraulic periodic agitation in correlation with the brush surround shell for unequaled even dstribution on brush, thus on the car.
  • Cost per car ------------- Unsurpassed lowest cost per car due to the above described chemical manipulation resulting in virtually no chemical loss.

The frame is the normal parallelogram brush configuration as we have used in this industry for many years. Ther are a few points that should be discussed for maximum efficiency of the Next Gen Unit.

  • Unit is designed to con on and off all the time even at night for unit to porperly work. This function will have negligible power consumption to accomplish this.
  • Each side should have a spring check valve in chemical line with 1 foot of bulkhead connector of Unit (Both SIdes)
  • Recommend using 1/4 inch poly tubing to connect the retract cylinders. The air flow rate is more appropriate for the air cylinders thus reducing the need for needle valve flow controls (3/8 poly tubing is larger than needed).
  • Unit should be checked periodically for brush frame to be level (Floor may not be level. Don't use floor for measurements) Automotive mishaps in tunnel can bend or shift unit & create a unit that is not level. This can happen without attendant knowing about incident there for it makes good practice to check preiodically.
  • Passenger sied retracted should have 72 inches from brush tips to inside conveyor rail to allow adequate clearance for most vehicles.
  • Recommend replacing the clear tubing , near bearings, at pivot points every 6 months to 1 year ( tubing tends to get hard over time & this is the flexing point working constantly during daily operations.
