Proto-Vest IP Stripper Dryer:

The new IP Stripper is designed to follow the contours of any type of vehicle to provide the closest proximity and therefore the best drying results using the least amount of horsepower.
The IP Stripper can dry at 120 cars per hour including the back windows of pickups, vans and SUVs, while only using 30hp and one overhead bag! The IP Stripper is equipped with Proto-Vest’s Dryers cutting edge integrated processor! This mainframe includes the vehicle recognition system (VRS) which detects approaching vehicles and sets in motion a series of activations for the IP Stripper. One of the many operations the VRS controls is the optional Proto-Vest Dryers AirGate®. When a vehicle is detected, the VRS will open the AirGate® and keep it open for the entire length of the vehicle. Once the vehicle has exited the dryer, the VRS will then close the AirGate® to minimize energy usage and maximize motor longevity.

VRS (Vehicle Recognition System)

The VRS differentiates between the types of cars that enter the dryer. If an open bed pickup is detected, the overhead bag will retract away from the vehicle once the cab has passed through. If the optional AirGate® is installed, it will close at this time to help minimize splash-back from the open bed. The bag will then stay up for the duration of the bed to further reduce splash-back. However, if the VRS detects a tonneau cover, it will leave the AirGate® open and descend the overhead bag to dry the surface of the cover. The VRS also contains an integrated timer that tracks the frequency of vehicles being dried. The timer then determines when to turn the motor off/on between cars, never letting the unit start more than 30 times in an hour. This maximizes the efficiency of the motor which allows for greater energy savings while ensuring motor longevity.

This unit has both a front and rear sensor that lets the overhead bag effortlessly follow the contours of any vehicle within inches to optimize drying performance while maintaining the lowest horsepower of any touch-free dryer.

The AirGate® is an option for any Proto-Vest Dryers.

Silencer Package

Silencer Package img
The Proto-Vest Dryers Silencer Package is compatible with all of Proto-Vest Dryers, enabling our systems to meet and exceed OSHA noise regulations. This technology reduces decibels generated by the impeller’s tip speed, rapid moving air being drawn into the blower assembly and discharged air from the blower.

Easy Install Motor Cover

Over time RO water can cause the outside of the dryer motor to look rusty. While this rust has no adverse effect on the motors performance, it can be an unpleasant sight in an otherwise clean car wash. The Easy Install Motor Cover offers the solution. In addition the cover also helps protect the motor from damage.

Proto-Pow Bag Cleaner

Proto-Pow, a biodegradable bag cleaner from Proto-Vest Dryers effectively cleans the air delivery bags on all Proto-Vest Dryers by removing dirt, wax, scum and lime deposits. It will improve both the appearance and longevity of your dryer.
