1. MaxAir® Dryers

MaxAir dries vehicles better than ever, yet uses less energy than conventional dryers.


PDQ’s MaxAir Drying Systems are a breakthrough in dryer performance. MaxAir dries vehicles better than ever, yet uses less energy than conventional dryers.

The key to MaxAir is optimizing air velocity and flow. As air exits a dryer, it travels at a high rate of speed or air velocity. The stream loses much of its speed as it meets the resistance of the surrounding air. By the time it reaches the vehicle, airflow has been minimized. In effect, optimum airflow is best near the dryer outlet. Unfortunately, that’s not where it’s needed. Through innovative design, MaxAir Dryers delivers high-velocity air to the vehicle surface – where it’s most important.

Your customers will enjoy drier vehicles – you’ll enjoy lower operating costs! Add MaxAir to your vehicle wash system today!

MaxAir Stand Alone Drying Systems

The MaxAir Stand-Alone Dryer utilizes concentrated air columns, air drafting, and an optimized array of blowers to deliver high-velocity air to the vehicle surface.

Concentrated Air Columns

MaxAir maximizes air velocity to the vehicle surface by using concentrated air columns. You see examples of this principle in action every day. To make a garden hose more effective, you concentrate the water flow to increase water impact. To make a flashlight brighter, you concentrate the light beam. The same concept applies to MaxAir. Concentrated air columns are achieved by using round discharging nozzles at the bottom of the dryer outlet. Round nozzles are more effective than square or rectangular ones. Nozzles that are not round tend to break up the airflow, causing more of the air to disperse and lose velocity as it travels through the surrounding air. By concentrating the air columns, MaxAir delivers high-velocity air to the vehicle surface – whether it’s a tall SUV or low profile sports car.

Air Drafting

MaxAir utilizes four stationary 7.5 horsepower blowers with the two center blowers in line to take advantage of air drafting. Drafting is a technique used by racecar drivers that literally splits the air. However, drafting is not limited to the world of motor sports. MaxAir also employs the technique. The first blower does the job of breaking the air, reducing the amount of wind resistance the trailing blower experiences. The trailing blower can now work on evaporating water off the vehicle surface. Optional 7.5hp side producers can be added to increase drying effectiveness even further.

Blower Positions

MaxAir blowers are strategically positioned to move water quickly off the vehicle surface using the shortest distance possible. When water droplets move on a vehicle, they split. The more they split, the smaller they become. Unfortunately, smaller water droplets are more difficult to move. With MaxAir, large water droplets move quickly off the vehicle sides rather than up and over the vehicle.

MaxAir Integrated Drying System

PDQ’s MaxAir Integrated Drying System takes all the features of the stand alone system and tightly integrates them into the bridge or gantry of the car wash. Integrated dryers also can perform a unique FlashDry® service, taking no additional time for a basic dry, by performing a rinse and dry in a single operation. Developed on the simple theory that it is easier to remove water that is already moving – FlashDry improves rinsing while removing over 80% of the water all in a single 10 second pass. Options and variety in drying allow greater package differentiation that increases your revenue per car.


SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System

Your customers will enjoy drier vehicles with PDQ’s new SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System. The enhanced SwingAir oscillating feature improves dryer performance while still using less energy than most conventional dryers. This new system incorporates motion in the center two producers to help sweep water off of the vehicle’s top surface, allowing the two outside producers to focus on pushing water down and off the sides of the vehicle. The SwingAir feature is available on both stand-alone and integrated MaxAir Drying Systems and can be ordered on new car wash equipment as well as added as a retrofit kit for existing ProTouch® Tandem, Laserwash® 360 or MaxAir® stand-alone sites.

Feature Summary:

  • Oscillating feature to sweep water from the surface of vehicles
  • 32″ (81cm) wider drying envelope with repositioned outside producers
  • Better drying on sides of vehicles with inward-angled outside producers
  • Can be ordered with new wash systems or as a retrofit kit

Isn’t it time you stopped wasting water?


The LaserH2O® Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems are complete, electronically controlled, skid-mounted units that incorporate all of the water pretreatment operations necessary to ensure high-quality product water. The low-pressure, high-efficiency design provides an industry-leading water recovery of 70%. With no operational adjustments necessary due to the unique auto-adjusting flow-control system, the units are hassle-free. The units simply plug into a standard dedicated 115V, 20A wall outlet.

Most RO systems look alike, cost alike and perform alike. Once a system is in place, it seldom is scrutinized to see whether it continues to meet an operator’s requirements, or how it results in lower overall cost in the long run when it is treated as a commodity item. Recurring problems, membrane fouling, part replacements, frequent cleaning and general maintenance increase the hidden cost of operation. Water quality is extremely important to the car wash process and, above all, the availability of a water-quality system is even more crucial. In the ultimate analysis, an operator can pay a lot more than just the initial purchase price to keep an RO system functioning as intended.

Recognizing these issues, PDQ configured a robust and well-proven design for the LaserH2O RO System. This system utilizes an ultra high-efficiency membranetechnology that allows the use of super-low-horsepower pumps, thereby making its operation more efficient. The unit is mounted on a durable powder-coated steel structure with 115V electrical service to ensure simple installation. It does not require a separate pretreatment unit; instead it utilizes unique 2-in-1 media and carbon filters that can treat up to 70,000 gallons each. An antiscalant injection system is also available for areas where water hardness exceeds 150 mg/l (9 grains). PDQ’s LaserH2O system also operates at up to 70% recovery, meaning less wastewater, and is available in three sizes of 3000, 5000 and 7000 gallons per day of spot-free product water.

Why choose the PDQ LaserH2O® RO System? Here are 11 good reasons:

  1. 98% Salt Rejection
    Membranes reject 98% salt content of the influent feed water.
  2. Higher Throughput at Lower Pressure
    This translates directly into electricity savings – up to $1600 per year.
  3. 70% System Recovery
    For every 10 gallons of spot free our system makes, only 4.28 gallons of waste water is generated. Competing systems generate 10 gallons of waste water for every 10 gallons of spot free, which is more money down the drain.
  4. No Water Softener Required
    Our systems do not need a softener if water hardness is below 400 mg/l (24 grains). Anti-scalant is required for hardness levels between 150-400 mg/l (9-24 grains).
  5. Single Phase Connection
    Plugs into a standard wall socket (115V, 20A).
  6. Non-Corrosive Housings for Membranes
    Well proven in the field. PVC is durable against chloride attack, thereby eliminating problems of rust formation.
  7. Built-In Reject Recycle
    Flushing of the membrane happens after the system is shut down. This procedure keeps the membranes cleaner and prolongs their life.
  8. Self-Regulating Orifice
    Controls output and avoids the use of excessive instrumentation such as fluid controls on the discharge line.
  9. Very Little Instrumentation
    Less to manage, less to go wrong.
  10. Packaged Delivery
    Transportation charges for RO systems shipped separately range from $400-500. Shipping from one source eliminates this cost.
  11. Superior Design
    Durable skid-mounted, powder-coated steel structure with 115V electrical service.
