SPOTLIGHT-PDQ ProTouch Tandem

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014 in AAW News, Product Spotlight | 0 comments

This Month's Product Spotlight features: PDQ ProTouch Tandem

AutoAuto Wash has recently installed several Tandem friction machines in the Colorado area with exceptional results.  Car count at the reload sites has increase significantly year over year at these sites.  The open bay, no treadle, is inviting to even the most intimidated driver.  The flash dry is an impressive customer experience.  If you have been a head strong touchfree operator and haven’t considered a friction in bay automatic, I encourage you to take a hard look at the PDQ Tandem and compare it to the competition.

The PDQ  ProTouch® Tandem is the industry's first two bridge, two brush friction car wash system. It has the widest top brush in the industry and utilizes both friction and high pressure wash technologies. PDQ has pioneered a new industry defining vehicle cleaning method with the ProTouch® Tandem. This superior wash system incorporates both touch-free and friction, giving operators who prefer the "clean" produced by friction systems a new choice. The ProTouch Tandem's full-body detergent coverage and simplified two brush engineering provides consistent cleaning performance with minimal brush contact. On average, the ProTouch Tandem touches the vehicle up to 70% less than five brush car wash systems on the market.

With the widest top brush coverage in the industry, the foam brushes are torque sensitive to monitor the contour of the vehicle and provide low-force cleaning power. The side-profiling, high-pressure wash arms effectively remove stubborn soil from the vehicle's surface. Plus, the three stage wheel cleaning system includes chemical application, rotating soft rim scrubbers and high pressure wheel blasters.

Key Features:

  • Two Bridge, Two Brush Design
  • PDQ's staple Open Wash Bay - overhead design with no floor steel
  • Integrated FlashDry®
  • Virtual Treadle® bay loading
  • Slip-Free Belt Drive

  • More Services - 3X Foam, Super Sealant, Rain Rinse Arch, Bug Prep
  • Tankless Operation
  • Internal Bridge Rollers
  • Built-in Web Interface for Updating, Reporting & Monitoring

Key Components:

Dual Bridge

The patent-pending ProTouch Tandem two-bridge design allows multiple cleaning processes to take place at one time speeding up the wash, versus a linear process common with most other friction systems. The belt driven bridges work in tandem to easily glide over the vehicle, adjusting their speeds and covering gaps to ensure the vehicle is completely covered. The ProTouch Tandem is also capable of washing oversized SUV's and dually trucks. Unlike other friction type systems, the expansive foam top and single rotational side brush configuration creates an entirely open wash bay.
