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

Silencer Package

Silencer Package img
The Proto-Vest 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, 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.
