Lone Star Car Wash Systems

In-Bay Automatics

In-bay automatics use a rolling motion over a stationary vehicle to thoroughly wash the exterior. The wash process is either Touchless or Friction based. The customer selects the wash at an unmanned pay/entry system prior to pulling forward into the wash bay. For 30 years, PDQ has provided the car wash industry with cutting-edge technological advances in car wash equipment and car wash systems. PDQ is currently the number one manufacturing company with over 10,000 units being shipped world-wide.


The LaserWash 360 by PDQ is the newest in-bay automatic system that has raised the standard for touchless car wash equipment. If revenue enhancement and ownership improvements are a main focus for you, LaserWash 360 promises to deliver the highest return on investment. The Smart 360™ technology surveys the conditions of the wash bay and begins “think for itself”. Simplified design, lower energy and utility usages reduce operating costs result in a more profitable car wash operation.


The ProTouch Tandem incorporates both touch-free and friction, giving operators who prefer the “friction” system, a new choice. Full-body coverage and a two brush system provide consistent performance with minimal brush contact. The foam brushes are torque sensitive and monitor the contour of the vehicle to provide low-force cleaning power. High-pressure wash arms effectively remove debris from the vehicle’s surface. Plus, the three stage wheel cleaning system includes a chemical application, rotating scrubbers and high pressure blasters.


The Tandem Surfline provides your customers with an exceptional wash experience incorporating an overhead design that creates a wide-open, easy-to-use wash bay. This innovative design is safe and inviting for your customers while offering all the revenue-generating features that will keep them coming back again and again. No other friction machine navigates around the vehicle as precisely as the Tandem Surfline, which ensures complete and optimal cleaning coverage for a wide variety of vehicle types, including duallys.
