ID3T washing tunnel
A rapid, made-to-measure solution
Two systems in one.
Also known as a tunnel gantry, the ID3T washing gantry is a system which combines a 'standard' automatic washing gantry which washes when the coach is stationary and a washing tunnel system where the vehicle passes through the machine which is fixed in place.
The major goal is to achieve the same washing quality whilst also achieving a washing time closer to that of a tunnel.
A combined system.
As soon as the bus arrives on the washing platform, the choice of washing programme is made depending on the type of bus to be washed. Then the driver simply follows the instructions on the machine. The machine indicates by a red light that the driver should stop for the front of the vehicle to be washed. The first washing phase takes place automatically as with a classic washing gantry: The front is washed by the 3 brushes. After the washing phase of the front of the vehicle, the washing tunnel then indicates via a green light that the driver can move forwards for the sides to be washed. During these phases, the three brushes are spread apart and rotate to enable the coach or bus to pass through whilst the sides and the top of the vehicle is washed. When the tunnel gantry detects the end of the vehicle, the light turns back to red to indicate to the driver that they should stop for the back of the bus to be washed. The washing tunnel returns to a purely automatic function and washes the rear of the coach with the 3 brushes. After this last washing phase, the washing tunnel light turns green to indicate to the driver that the end of the washing cycle has been reached and authorises the vehicle to exit the washing zone.
Cost reduction on all levels.
- Reduction in immobilisation time for coaches and drivers during the washing cycle.
- Reduction of electrical and hydraulic consumption thanks to a cycle time reduced by 40%.
- Reduction in civil engineering costs with a washing platform reduced by half in length.
In the same way, the ID3T is designed to be installed easily as a replacement for a traditional vehicle wash tunnel on the same washing platform.
