Windshear Dryer

Proto-Vest Windshear® Dryer

The Windshear® automotive dryer is a stand alone system that is ideal for both conveyor and automatic applications. It’s single 30 hp blower/motor and three air delivery bags are designed to direct air down around each vehicle to effectively dry cars as they pass under the equipment arch. With minimal moving parts, the Windshear® is a low maintenance drying solution that is built for efficiency and longevity.

Features / Benefits

Pressurized air flows through three (3) patented bags which direct the air to the vehicle’s horizontal and vertical surfaces. It dries the hood, roof, deck, windows, and sides of the vehicle without touching.

Low Maintenance:

Other than the blower / impeller assemblies, there are no moving parts to wear-out or break down.
(Please note that Proto-Vest recommends routine maintenance in order to maximize product life.)

Line Speed Efficiency:

As a stand alone unit the “Windshear®” will provide an effectively dried car at a wide variety of line speeds.

Compact / Modular design:

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
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

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 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.
