Pellet is a fully eco-friendly heating fuel made of biomass and used in the HYDROPRESS car wash technology to heat water and floors.

Pellet is produced from dry sawdust by means of pelletizing presses, by squeezing the sawdust through the compressing heads. There is no binding agent added in the manufacturing process, because the lignin, a tacky element naturally present in wood, forms pellets on its own1. In terms of energy performance and user convenience, the pellet is considered to be the most efficient renewable energy source. It is also worth mentioning that the pellet is a fully organic heating fuel emitting carbon dioxide equivalent to the amount absorbed by the tree during its growth while combustion. In addition, the ashes remaining after burning pellets can be used as fertilizer.

The HYDROPRESS car wash, which uses a pellet-fuelled heating system, includes a storage tank with a capacity of 1 m3 and a DHW tank with capacity of 600-1000 litres. Boiler power depends on the size of the car wash and can vary between 30 and 80 kW.

All heating processes are controlled by the boiler automatics and control devices that run the carwash depending on the heat demand, weather conditions and individual settings of the site administrator. Such solution optimizes the use of raw materials and at the same time significantly reduces operational costs. It is estimated that prices of fossil fuels will go up together with increasing demand and decreasing supply. On the other hand, the market situation for renewable fuels ought to be shaped conversely. With their increased consumption, their production will increase.

Determinants of innovation and guarantee of reliability of HYDROPRESS automation and control systems is the use of high quality electronic components manufactured by world leaders: EATON and MELLER

Highly efficient and user-friendly automation HYDROPRESS system allows remote control of all the parameters and processes of car wash operation, regardless of where you are.  Such form of control helps managing the time of the investor more efficiently, bearing in mind the need for its economy, control over car wash income and limit the number of visits to the site to the necessary minimum.

Operation panel allows full control of car wash operations and settings of its functioning even if you manage a number of car washes or a whole carwash network at once. At any given moment, the system generates revenue statistics of the carwash, reporting the status of provided services.

The complete automation system works on the basis of modern technology and the internet connection and allows you to manage it from your computer or a mobile device. Car wash monitoring is available 24/7 and the system automatically reacts to potential device malfunctions by informing the owner of the car wash with an SMS message.

Intelligent and flexible design of the panel board in the HYDROPRESS control system enables you to quickly expand the existing car wash by adding more bays and adding extra equipment with additional car washing programmes. We strongly recommend the ACTIVE FOAM and BRUSH WASH programmes that offer top quality washing using small amount of water and our highly efficient detergents.

The primary strategic goal for HYDROPRESS is to provide products with low operational costs, generating stable income and maintaining the highest quality standards. The HYDROPRESS production department has been trying for years to improve the design of the car wash and successfully came up with solutions that offer the lowest maintenance costs compared with car washes provided by other manufacturers.

We recommend solutions that optimize the carwash operation by using minimum amount of water, heat and detergents while maintaining the highest quality of car washing services.

HYDRORPESS technology offers the highest class condensing AO SMITH gas boilers heating both floor and water, highly efficient and fully integrated with the hot water tank. Depending on the outside temperature the floor heating is automatically controlled by dedicated weather detectors that regulate heat distribution for heating.

The pneumatic system for dosing detergents that can be remotely controlled from operator panels allows you keep full control over operational parameters of the car wash, powder feeder settings and working time.  We recommend our own, eco-friendly, highly efficient detergents that are good to the environment and are very satisfying to our customers.

A significant factor that reduces operational costs of the car wash is that you can use LED backlights placed in the attic of the object. The light control system has dusk sensors that control the light in the car wash and the light in individual bays, and switches it off automatically 2 minutes after the wash is completed. In addition, the dusk sensors control the advertising lightning by switching off after sunset.

We also recommend fitting your carwash with an eco-friendly pellet heating system, especially designed for floors and water, using a renewable energy source and ensuring significant reduction of operational costs. Using 2.0 kg of pellets substitute 1 litre of heating oil, while 1 tonne of burned pellet produces approximately 4 kg of ash, used as a fertilizer, contributing to reduction of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere.
