An In-bay Automatic Wash system is a system in which the customer drives the vehicle into the wash bay and parks. The In-bay Wash equipment moves over the vehicle to provide a variety of wash processes and options. The In-bay Automatic wash will normally wash 15-25 vehicles per hour, and is adjustable dependant on climatic requirements. The customer would complete the sales transaction at an auto-cashier like the eAccess system which accepts coins, tokens, bills, Credit card, Fleet card, and codes.

The discussion in the industry about In-Bay Touchless has been High Pressure vs. High Impact branded equipment, and the key to both is really the impingement or impact strength of the water.
Now, eWash is offering both with our newest In-bay the Contour HPI, this hybrid wash unit offers both High pressure, and High Volume Impact technologies. The science behind the spray impacting the vehicle surface can be seen below.
Most In-bay Automatics use 36 gpm @1000 PSI. From the formula we see this would be I=.0526 x 36 x sq1000, so Impact is 59 with this set-up. The standard High Pressure Contour HP is similar I=.0526 x 36 x sq1500 or 73.33 higher than most competitors. As far as High Impact Machines Ryko is the major proponent of that style in car Automatics and a Radius is I=.0526 x 70 x sq350, or 68.9. The Contour HP High Impact Automatic is I=.0526 x 90 x sq650, or 120.7 nearly twice the competition. Therefore, if your wash facility is in an area with mud, snow, and other cleaning challenges, the use of both technologies as done on the Contour HP HPI is the answer to the tough cleaning challenges, and results in happy customers.
