Car Wash vacuum cleaners

Twice the Life Vacuum Motors

AMETEK is happy to announce the next generation in car wash vacuum motors, designed with the intent to be a drop in replacement for the traditional car wash vacuum, but with a life of twice or more of traditional motors. 

The 122315-18 is designed with new patented brush technology, AMETEK was able to take the average life form 700 hours to more than 1500+ hours.

What Does This Mean For You?

If means more revenue and less downtime. Changing out brushes has become a thing of the past because once this motor reaches it's extended life the bearings have reached their end of life and the motor needs to be replaced. 

In addition to the long life brushes the motor also incorporates enhanced bearing protection to prevent water from washing the grease out of the bearing. As a car wash owner, you know your patrons will vacuum up anything. 

Car wash owners now have a choice for service replacements as well as asking OEMs to install long life AMETEK motors in new vacuum units. Technology has finally produced a motor product that adds value to the car wash industry. Owners can leverage this technology to increase their revenue stream, increase vacuum uptime, and increase customer satisfaction. This new drop in replacement completed a car wash product line that meets the demanding needs of the industry and the application. Patrons will appreciate the more powerful motors and longer life. If a service company is paying to have motors replaced or brushes changed, these new motors will provide a solid cost savings. For those involved in retail partnerships, e.g. gas stations, your customers will appreciate the uptime while you benefit form less service calls. In the end, the benefit is less down time and more profits.
