Vehicle washing



Vehicle washes

Cars, trucks and trains are in safe and reliable hands when Grundfos pumps are part of the washing process. As a full-line supplier we cover every aspect of the washing cycle, offering high quality pumps for:

  • Soap dispersing
  • Supplying the brushes with water
  • Cleaning of undercarriage
  • Waxing

Depending on the type of vehicle and the exact requirements, the application encompasses either one or two multistage centrifugal pumps + one dosing pump. In car washes, requiring two main pumps, the system is typically customised to ensure that the exact customer specifications are catered to in terms of both pressure and water treatment. The high pressure pumps efficiently handle pressure of up to 40 bar – and can be supplied with advanced dosing pumps that accurately dose the required detergent or chemical.

Energy consumption is important to your customer.Grundfos' high-efficient E-solutions significantly reduce energy consumption by automatically adjusting pump performance to the actual need. Naturally, the E-solutions meet the international efficiency standards.
Stock management can be difficult due to the global differences in voltages and frequencies. Grundfos' E-solutions feature dual frequency and a wide voltage range, allowing you to use the same solution all over the world. Naturally, the E-solutions carry the necessary approvals.
Very high pressure significantly reduces the life of the shaft seal.Grundfos offers high pressure pumps where the shaft seal is placed at the low pressure side. By eliminating the high pressure on the seal, the life of the seal is efficiently prolonged.
Generating very high pressure often requires very tall pumps or two or more consecutive pumps.

Choosing Grundfos' high-efficient pumps the size of the pumps can be significantly reduced.

The required pressure performance varies during the washing cycle.

Grundfos’ E-solutions automatically adjust to the required pressure and flow, cutting back on energy consumption.

Abrasive liquids may cause premature pump breakdowns. Grundfos offers an advanced monitor that will keep an eye on your installation and inform you when the pump requires service.
Precise dosing of detergents and chemicals is important. Grundfos provides sophisticated digital dosing solutions, which will ensure that neither chemicals nor money is wasted.
