VACUUM CLEANER FOR CAR WASH
The choice of a professional vacuum cleaner for car wash depends on many factors and, before buying it, it is necessary to evaluate the kind of daily work to do: how many cars are washed on average? Is it necessary the suction liquids? Is there enough time for a daily maintenance of the vacuum cleaner or carpet cleaner?
According to the answers to these questions, Elsea manufactures vacuum cleaners that can meet every kind of need: for example, machines with 2 or 3 motors for small and medium car washes or with 3 or 4kW turbines for big car washes.
Tips for buying car wash vacuum cleaners
In order to find the right vacuum cleaner, the size of the car wash is not enough: every single component and technical specification of the vacuum must be considered. The material of the vacuum cleaner and of the tank are aspects that must be verified. When the machine is also used for the suction of liquids, the tank must be made of plastic, especially in case of corrosive residues. When liquids suction is a daily practice it is recommended to buy a wet and dry vacuum cleaner designed for the double use (dust/liquids). Beside the material, the capacity of the tank must be also considered. This factor depends on the frequency of usage, on the kind of work and on the level of maintenance/cleaning of the machine. Another important technical specification is the ratio between air flow and filter surface; the flow consists in the amount of air handled by the vacuum cleaner within an hour. The filter surface is referred to the amount of dust that can be managed. The first quantity is expressed in M3, while the second one in M2. The performance of a professional vacuum cleaner depends also on the ratio between air- flow and filter surface that must be below 200 m3/m2/h. For more info on these technical features, the ELSEA customer service is available to provide details and useful suggestions to find the most suitable models of vacuum cleaners for car wash.
Size of the working area and cost-quality ratio
For a wise choice is also important to consider the size of the working area, along with the presence of a proper space to use and place the machine, that must not be left unattended in order to avoid potential damages.
The last element that should be considered is the cost-quality ratio. Saving money by buying second hand machines is not always a good option because the years of usage, the level of maintenance and the way the machine has been kept are often not in favor of purchasing second hand machines. Compared to a second hand machine, a new vacuum cleaner is characterized by a more convenient ratio between duration and performance with a better cost saving.
