Volumetrics is an essential process for precise measurement of chemicals used per car wash application. Methods of completing volumetrics are measuring product in its original container or drum, graduated cylinders or using a digital counting scale. These methods are measuring the volume of product used per application. With any method, it is critical that the volumetric is completed on a stable, level surface to achieve the most accurate results.
The oldest method for calculating cost per car wash to simply take the total amount of cost of solution used during a given period of time and divide it by the number of cars that were washed during that same period of time will provide you with a general cost per car.
The graduated cylinder method for measuring requires two cylinders: a 100-milliliter cylinder and a 250-milliliter cylinder.
The most recent and accurate method for performing volumetrics involves the use of a digital counting scale. This procedure tends to be quicker and is the most accurate, especially when using ultra concentrated products.
Once multiple cars have gone through, you will want to calculate the use per vehicle by the below process.
Specific gravity by product is available through your distributor.
These procedures can be repeated for each product. Accuracy in volumetrics, whether through the use of graduated cylinders or the scale, is important in providing accurate cost per car. You can view the instruction video at http://youtu.be/tiQyTwQZcQs.
