PDQ Manufacturing Inc.

De Pere, Wisconsin

PDQ Manufacturing is recognized as a technological leader in vehicle wash systems, providing superior quality, outstanding support, and products that contribute to operators’ profitability.

What’s New/Best Seller • SwingAir Dryer System.

Advantages/Features • The SwingAir Dryer is available for integrated and standalone applications and can be ordered as an option on new PDQ LaserWash 360 Plus touchless and ProTouch Tandem friction machines, as well as retrofit kits for these systems.

The SwingAir advances the MaxAir’s design by oscillating the center two air producers. This allows the air, while still traveling at the same high velocity, to sweep across the vehicle at varying angles, which optimizes the dryer’s ability to wick or cascade the water away, resulting in a dryer vehicle.
