Proto-Vest IP345 Dryer

The IP345 performs all of the necessary actions to produce a proficiently dried vehicle completely by itself! From recognizing pick ups, turning the dryer on/off, open/closing the optional Proto-Vest Dryers AirGate® between cars, to recognizing open bed pickups and suspending the overhead bags, the IP345 does it all. Absolutely no adjustments or car wash controller functions are required when using the IP345 giving this system both the brawn to handle faster line speeds with a wider vehicle array and the brains to operate as a self contained unit!

Features / Benefits

The IP Series will recognize pick ups, perform open bed functions, turn the dryer on/off, and open/close the Proto-Vest Dryers AirGate® between cars. There will no longer be any manual adjustments required when using the IP Series.

Line Speed Efficiency:

The IP345 is the most efficient touch-less drying system made. With a specially designed 45-hp system, the IP Series will provide a dry car at a variety of line speeds.

Silencer Package:

Optional products that can help save energy and reduce noise are available for most Proto-Vest Dryers.


The AirGate® is a valuable option that not only reduces horsepower, but also prolongs the live of your dryer’s motor. The AirGate® eliminates the ramp-up time between vehicles lowering your electricity use without affecting the performance of your Proto-Vest Dryers system. The AirGate® is an option for any Proto-Vest Dryers.

Silencer Package

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.
