Vehicle Wash

The two main uses for dosing pumps within vehicle wash systems are for dosing detergent and wax.

A standard dosing system features a pump such as the PKX MA/A, a small manual dosing pump ideal for car wash systems in particular.

The two main uses for dosing pumps within vehicle wash systems are for dosing detergent and wax, which both require different material configuration.

Typically the pump used will be a manually controlled solenoid dosing pump, set to operate on a relay to start up in accordance with the detergent or wax system used specifically by each vehicle wash. As an alternative, the pumps can controlled based on a timer cycle or by receiving a pulse from a water meter. For these control methods, a multifunction pump such as the eOne MF is recommended for use.

A standard dosing system features a pump such as the PKX MA/A, a small manual dosing pump ideal for car wash systems in particular. The PKX pump is operated on a relay so, when the system is activated, it will turn on and start to dose the additive at the flow rate set by the operator.

Our pumps can also be equipped with a level switch, that can be configured to operate on a relay switch to inform the operator when the additive supply is running low. For applications that require a larger amount of additive injected into the system, such as a train wash system, a motor driven pump will be more suitable. Motor Pumps are designed for easy maintenance allowing minimal down time, and are suitable for greater outputs. These Pumps also have a robust gearbox reduction system ensuring high quality, reliable and repeatable performance.
