Conveyor speed is determined by your Tommy Wash Controller System. Typically the hydraulic power unit is located at the rear of the wash near the conveyor drive, making manual speed changes difficult. With the Tommy conveyor power unit and the Tommy Controller car wash operators and owners have the ability to set the conveyor speed ..
LED lights can fail for several reasons, but typically they hold up well in wet environments, have low operation costs, and provide a nice additional touch for express washes. Failure comes from 3 main causes. Internal failure: Happens when moisture penetrates into the LED housing. This usually happens at either end of the light strip ..
If a VFD stops due to a fault code and presents “OBF” it means there has been an overvoltage during deceleration. This most frequently occurs on a belt conveyor system under a full vehicle load in situations where an emergency stop or slowdown is activated. The momentum of the cars can cause the belt to ..
The DR Motor uses a new connection designation. Instead of using DTxx as used with DT/DV motors, the DR motor uses Rxx. The numbers represented by “xx” are usually the same for the new DR as the old DT/DV. For example, the DT13 standard connection previously used for a Δ/Y motor (230/400-50Hz) is now an ..
Variable Speed Drives – Helping Build a Greener Car Wash “Variable frequency drives, or variable speed drives (VSDs), can greatly increase motor efficiency in a variety of applications. VFDs are electrical devices which adjust the rotational speed of fan and pump motors in response to varying heating and cooling loads, and thus are much more ..
