Benefits

Increased Revenue

The LaserWash® 360 Plus car wash system allows more opportunities to enhance your revenue stream with new service offerings and improve car wash package differentiation to better align with your customer’s needs. New services include; Front Bug Prep, dedicated Super Sealant applicators, FlashDry® rinse and enhanced arch control for better detergent coverage and improved bug removal. Substantially faster wash speeds will increase your vehicle throughput – reducing a customer’s total time at the site and putting a smile on their face.


Lower Cost of Ownership

Reductions in water, electricity and chemicals drop right to your bottom line while simpler parts replacements and easier troubleshooting reduce on-going maintenance costs. The Smart 360™ Plus Technology system dramatically reduces the interaction needed by an attendant while the non-corrosive structure fights the harsh wash environment for the long-term. A “keep-it-simple” design goal is realized by significant reductions in sensors, swivels, valves and the use of common electronic parts throughout.


Return on Investment

With the PDQ LaserWash® 360 Plus your Return on Investment is a combination of Wash Volume Increases, improved Revenue per Wash and reduced Costs per Car. A quick pay-back from your initial investment, the piece of mind of knowing that you have a new machine and the true “Green Savings” from a faster, simpler and more efficient system confirm the profit increasing potential to your bottom line.

Smart 360™ Plus Technology

The cleaning power of the PDQ LaserWash 360 Plus is raised to a new level with the addition of better vehicle chemical coverage with rounded arch corners, smart chemical timing and tilting arch functions. High pressure applications now include the ability to tilt to cover the back of side mirrors and arch oscillation to attack bugs from multiple angles. Combined with your ability to customize services and speeds in infinite combinations and to store favorite or seasonal packages – the cleaning system is a major step forward.


The LaserWash 360 Plus Arch Control System allows for quicker throughput and creates customer confidence and comfort through the entire wash process. The arch is able to rotate 360 degrees while simultaneously moving around the vehicle. Three axis motions provide rounded corner profiling to produce consistent coverage by keeping the nozzles always focused on the vehicle. No more spraying on the floor! Arch control makes every second productive in the wash process – each corner time is reduced from 4 seconds to 1.5. The Smart 360 Arch Control also intelligently operates around the complete vehicle perimeter; monitoring and adjusting to conditions to keep attendant interaction low.


PDQ’s LaserWash 360 integrated dryer option performs the unique FlashDry service that takes no additional time for a basic dry by performing a rinse and dry in a single operation. Developed on the simple theory that it is easier to remove water that is already moving – FlashDry improves rinsing while removing over 80% of the water all in a single 10 second pass. Dryer options also can include a separate stand alone dryer or the ability to use the integrated dryer as a drive through dryer as the customer exits. Options and variety in drying allow greater package differentiation that increases your revenue per car.


A modern, easy to use web browser interface to access all key operating functions and reports is standard on the LaserWash 360 Plus. You can change wash packages, view performance and trend reports and monitor all machine functions with any device that has a web browser without needing any special software. Secure connections can be done remotely through the Internet allowing flexibility and the reduced need to go to the site. Email messaging and other real-time connections keep you and your staff in touch with the operation anywhere and anytime.


PDQ’s LaserWash 360 Plus gives your customers a safe, comfortable and easy to use wash experience. The overhead design and improved vehicle positioning system keeps the bay floor open and unobstructed. Bright and simple customer signage combined with language specific audio messages provides clear instructions. Exciting wash services like oscillating high pressure, 3X colored foam, super sealant and the amazing FlashDry system leave the customer with more than a wash – they exit with a unique feeling that your wash bay is different from the competitors.


Drying Options

The LaserWash 360 Plus can be partnered with a variety of drying options. PDQ offers a fixed integrated drying system capable of FlashDry, the SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System, as well as a MaxAir stand alone dryer in either four or six producer configurations.

FlashDry®

PDQ’s LaserWash 360 Plus integrated dryer option, coupled with the overhead rinse arch, can perform a unique FlashDry service that takes no additional time for a basic dry. This is achieved by performing a rinse and dry simultaneously in a single pass over the vehicle. Developed on the simple theory that it is easier to remove water that is already moving, FlashDry improves rinsing while removing over 80% of the water in a single 10 second pass.


SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System

The LaserWash 360 Plus also is available with PDQ’s new SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System. This new system incorporates motion in the center two producers used to help push the water off of the vehicles top surface, allowing the two outside producers to focus on pushing the water off the sides of the vehicle. This synchronized drying system offers a superior dry that your customers will appreciate. The SwingAir is available on both the integrated and stand alone drying systems.


Stand-Alone MaxAir Dryer

As with all PDQ equipment, the LaserWash 360 Plus can be paired with a MaxAir stand alone dryer in either four or six producer configurations.
