Drive Through Lorry Wash
AKA Gantry Wash System
Cleaning irregular shaped and sized vehicles can be a problem that is overcome by using a gantry wash system. Using hot or cold water with fully installed pipe work around the system the gantry provides access to both high or irregular shaped vehicles. This type of system is ideal for use by transport and waste management companies or for the cleaning of plant.
A drive through lorry wash is semi-automatic operation where one operator can utilise all of the features without the necessity of entering the plant room, switching the unit on or the need for trailing cables and hoses. The operator gains access to high sided vehicles from an upper level of the walkway and plugs into a conveniently placed point to access the required pressure.
Housed in a separate building is the pump unit, fuel and detergent. A lorry wash itself can be housed in a screen wash system to protect the neighbouring environment.
