Although Proto-Vest is known to carry a wide range of standard drying machines that are popular in the car wash industry, there are situations where a custom built industrial dryer is needed.
Custom Car Wash Dryers

Our Proto-Vest engineers can configure a custom dryer solution that meet the needs and requirements for your facility’s manufacturing process in removing fluid and dust.  Past designs include customized units for automobile bodies, brake rotors, brake drums, pipes, plastic bottles, paint and saw dust removal and automotive testing interior noise levels.  Manufacturers have chosen Proto-Vest because of our ability to work with size and space limitations, capacity and other specific constraints in your workspace.

Proto-Vest holds over 40 patents on various drying products with several more pending.

Energy Efficiency – Majority of our dryers are touch free and use very low horsepower to strip water from the surface, offering an effective drying solution at high volume line speeds.   We are able to build them to effectively dry a manufacturing part without having to sacrifice performance or quality.  Our motors range from 15 HP to 30 HP depending on the dryer model you choose.  Clients have learned that our motors have improved the profitability of their facility.  Because of our energy efficiency and low maintenance, we can help decrease electrical costs of your facility.

Quietest dryers in the manufacturing industry – Not too many competitors out there can lower the noise level for their dryer system.  The OSHA permissible noise exposure is 85db for an 8 hour shift.  Most of our dryer noise levels range between the 70db to 80db range, so you can be assured of a more pleasant and safer environment for both your employees and customers.  We are the only manufacturer in North America that has patents on our design/engineering whereas we are considered the ‘Quietest’ dryer in the industry without sacrificing our drying quality.

100% Customer Service – Proto-Vest’s #1 priority is customer satisfaction.  Recognizing that support after the sale of equipment is critical to the success of the customer.  Proto-Vest offers its customers a wide range of services, including field service technicians and factory direct after market parts.


roof-mounted Rooftop Installations

Past designs include installing blower motors and silencer equipment on the roof of the facility. This unique design helps free up much needed space in narrow bays as well as helps with noise level reduction inside the wash.



Pioneer-Petro Adjacent Room Install

In some instances its best for the dryer’s blower motors and optional equipment to be housed in an adjacent or remote room, separate from the wash bay/tunnel. In this case a Proto-Vest engineer will design a solution to meet your exact specifications. Whether the equipment is being placed in an existing separate room or being built in a new facility specific for this need, Proto-Vest can accommodate.


Customized Motor Placement

Narrow tunnels, limited floor space and a variety of other factors can make it difficult to fit standard equipment. Aside from placing blower motors in adjacent rooms or the roof, special customized add-ons can be built to solve space limitations. In this example, a custom stand was developed to hold the motor above the dryer. Air delivery bags can also be customized to direct air flow exactly where it is needed. Changing the size, shape or even color to fit your needs.

We are continuously making improvements on our dryer systems, upgraded control box functions and other equipment.  Which Proto-Vest dryer system do you want in your facility?
