With a number of vehicles constantly growing all over the world, car wash equipment must be optimized in order to always wash more vehicles and deliver high quality results while coping with high pressure on cost and water usage.
Among all equipment, a car wash dosing pump plays a key role in contributing to clean vehicles and at the same time driving down cost-per-car.
There are several ways to wash a vehicle, from basic manual method to fully automated touchless gantry wash.
Dosatron is the perfect solution for most of the existing technologies as :
First a Dosatron is a device very simple to install. It just needs to be inserted in the water line connected to the application, using the input and output threaded connection. The suction hose has to be connected at the bottom of the unit and dunked into the chemical to be injected. The unit will operate as soon as it is being fed with water. Protecting the unit with a filter and a non-return valve will prevent unexpected failures.
In addition, the Dosatron will adapt by design to the flow required at the application. From single nozzle foam application, through manual lances to arches with multiple nozzles, the Dosatron will deliver the required amount of chemical regardless of flow and pressure variation. This is a key benefit for an accurate control of chemical consumption. As an example, a lack of chemical will end in poor wash quality where too much chemical will just be a loss of money with no benefit for the users.
Dosatron car wash dosing pumps can process most of the chemicals available on the market from a chemical resistance point of view. They are also available with several dosing ranges offering high dosing rate for wheel wash for example down to low dosing to cover ultra-concentrated products. Dosage can be manually adjusted using the rotating sleeve on the dosing stem. This will help optimize the set up depending on each chemical and results at vehicles.
Last but not least, servicing a Dosatron is more than simple and highly cost effective. No specific tooling is required. Maintenance can actually be done where the unit is installed. Moreover all service kits are available at Dosatron partners.
Dosatron offers a wide range of dosing pumps for vehicle wash. Below are the 2 must-have for your installation.
D3TRE features resistance to water temperature up to 70°C (158°F). This answers specific requirements from self-serve wash installations where water temperature:
D3RE range is built for pressure up to 6 bars (85 psi) and flow up to 3000 l/h (14 GPM), featuring a wide dosing range from 0.03% to 25%. Several options (seal, by-pass, pump body material etc…) will help customize the Dosatron to the specific requirement or application.
