Tommy’s Car Wash Equipment Package allows you to configure a complete car wash system custom designed to meet your requirements. Equipment packages are easy to configure and contain everything you need to create a complete Tommy car wash within your facility.
While all wash packages contain essentially the same standard car wash equipment components, Tommy’s car wash equipment package provides many options for customization, allowing you to add as much or little “flare” to your car wash as you would like. Added accessories or upgrades such as Rain X applicator arches, go lights, exterior signs and detailing equipment are the largest influencers in regards to final price quotes.Conveyors / Transporters
Comes with our standard steel conveyor, an over under system with 3’ 6” roller spacing (as opposed to 6’ 6” spacing, which is not ideal for express type washes). The 60’ conveyor base includes the hydraulic power pack which drives the car wash conveyor belt. Hydraulics are the preferred power drive for car wash conveyors due to the electrical safety issues which arise when dealing with pit water. Car wash conveyor length may be customized with 10’ additional sections. All conveyor modules come with correlators, which align car tires to the conveyor track. Pit grating is constructed from a fiberglass material chosen for its easy maintenance, excellent drainage and strength.Entrance Modules
Tommy’s Entrance Module is a system used in express car washes which allows customers to load their own cars onto the conveyors without employee assistance. Module includes a visual barrier for the customer, an element which is key to the self-loading process, as well as a mirror and signage. Self loading car washes require this module, and we recommend one year of strict procedural training to help customers become accustomed to this entry method.Presoak Module
Our presoak module is a wonderful new product which will allow your new car wash to clean hard-to-reach places far better than other car wash designs. Tommy’s patented presoak arch applies chemicals to front bumpers, windshields, back windows, back bumpers, wheels and tires, each at different chemical dilution ratios. This allows your car wash to effectively clean bugs or backends without wasting chemicals on other, less difficult surfaces. This product is one of the most important cleaning modules in Tommy’s car wash equipment package.Multi-Washer Module
Otherwise known as the wrap mitter combo, this module is the primary cleaning tool for the friction aspect of the car wash. The wrap mitter combo cleans fronts, backs (twice) and both sides, while the mitter cleans the rest. A typical system will use two of these units and lower rocker panel brushes for extra cleaning on road film areas.Triple Coat Arch
Largely for show, this foaming arch dispenses three different colors of shine product. This part of the wash is a great place to spark life into the wash when dealing with express washes, and we highly recommend using the sign panel and LED light upgrades to make this module even more interactive. LED light and sign panels may be added to nearly any of the arches in the tunnel, depending on how much “flare” you’d like your car wash to have. The triple coat arch and LED sign panels make your car wash equipment stand out and “wow” the customer.Side Washer Module
The final friction section of the car wash, this module includes a contour brush with mitter combo unit. The contour brush is a split brush which allows you to adjust angle and pressure separately on top and bottom half, contouring to the shape of common cars and SUVs. This module can be visualized as a parenthesis-shaped brush “hugging” the car.Following Wheel Blaster
A unit which blasts wheels and tires with high pressure, cleaning hard-to-reach wheel areas.Final Application Module
This module begins with an all-in-one high pressure arch. This module runs on two 30 GPM pump stations, blasting and rinsing the car with a top oscillator, side blast and four stage fixed rocker blaster.Rain X
The Rain X applicator arch adds $3 of revenue to each wash, and is recommended. Protect and drying agents are then applied to begin the chemical drying process, then final rinse (or reverse osmosis water filtration, if required).Tire Dressing Applicator
A touchless unit, this is the best and easiest upsell item due to the extremely noticeable difference this service makes. Costs you 65 cents per car and sells for a recommended $3.Blower Module
Consists of multiple direct mount blower arches which allow you to locate your producers in an ideal formation around the car, a feature which only Tommy’s patented round arches can accomplish. This system focuses air in one direction, increasing blower efficiency. Blower system pushes air back like a blade, providing excellent drying to important areas, such as windows, hood and mirrors.Support Equipment
These are products which, for the most part, are required to run the car wash modules listed above. The bay cleaning station is a high pressure pump with a gun that may be used for prepping and cleaning car wash equipment. The 5 bank hydraulics power wash equipment and brushes. The double stack pump station powers the high pressure arch. The single horsepower pump powers the following wheel blaster; Rain X pumping station and the following pump panels dispense soap products to the car wash equipment and arches within the tunnel. All support equipment is constructed from durable stainless steel on stainless steel mounts.Air Compressor
Supplies air to the cylinders and foamers. Tommy’s system uses two air compressors to generate the necessary pressure and flow rates and may be used as a back up in emergencies. Water softener is required in some areas, depending on quality of available water. We recommend testing your water for hardness and total dissolved solids (TDS) levels to determine whether or not you will need supplemental water filtration equipment.Water Heater
Typically around 1.226 million BTU, this boiler has a circulating pump and storage tank. This is a necessary piece of equipment for car washes located in any geographical area, as hot water cleans far more efficiently than cold. The ladder rack is a chase system for the stainless tubing which plumbs hydraulics and chemicals and usually runs from the presoak through the last rinse arch.Wash Controller
Necessary to turn components on and off at the proper times. The premium controller is an upgraded controller option which offers the ability to wirelessly dial into the wash controller from any location online. This controller ias also monitored from Tommy’s headquarters, allowing us to report any critical information to you. Using the premium controller, we’re able to feed you data which would normally require more man hours; we can also calculate live cost per car figures, system faults and potential problems, automatic chemical reordering, marketing recommendations based on current sales and pricing, live chemical levels and much, much more.This system is only available on the drum pump over program.Electric Control Kit
Controls the entrance eyes for the car wash, start and stop buttons and warning horn. The anti-collision module is placed in concrete at the end of the wash as an emergency shut down feature in the event that a customer has a problem getting their car back in gear or uncontrollably stops.Point of Sale
Dual ICS auto sentry is an ideal point of sale system. It collects money from the customer, accepts credit cards, stages the customers using gates and programs the wash into the premium controller
