What’s New/Best Seller • Metered Central Self-Serve Vacuums.
Advantages/Features • Metered central vacuum systems let car wash owners decide how long customers vacuum free of charge. Each customer enjoys powerful vacuum suction for a set period of time, then AutoVac’s metering device automatically cuts off suction to that specific lane. This reduces wait times and cuts energy costs. “Free vacuums” no longer have to be “free unlimited” vacuums.
Delivery/Installation • Systems are available worldwide through AutoVac’s distributor and installation network.
Customer/Operator Support • A team of technical support experts can immediately answer any installation or operating questions.
Pricing • Available upon request.
