Proto-Vest Sideshot Dryer:

The Sideshot automotive dryer is a touch-free unit that can be combined with any of our extensive line of dryers. With only (1) 15 hp blower, this system requires little maintenance and functions effortlessly at a variety of line speeds. The Sideshot targets the windows, doors, fenders, and tires of a vehicle with pinpoint drying capabilities. As an option, it can be equipped with a Proto-Vest Silencer Package to reduce noise lower than OSHA federal regulations.

(Please note that Proto-Vest recommends routine maintenance in order to maximize product life.)

Line Speed Efficiency:

When packaged with specific Proto-Vest drying systems, the Sideshot can assist in providing a 95% dry car at line speeds up to 100+ cars per hour. Additionally, this system can aid in reducing in labor costs.
