Tips for maintaining dryers

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In PC&D’s October issue we discuss how to keep dryers performing their best to put the perfect finishing touches on cars, keeping customers coming back to your wash.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Well performing dryers keep cars looking great and customers happy. They provide the finishing touch on a clean car to prevent water spotting and keep customers returning to your wash.

Dryers can also keep walking areas clean, preventing slips and falls and puddles. We spoke with J.R. Klemmer, general manager of Proto-Vest Inc., who offered five tips for keeping dryers performing at their best.

  1. Inspect dryers every week.
  2. Check for changes in operation.
  3. Check for blockage near the blower motor intake.
  4. Routinely look for damage to any nozzles or to the air delivery bag system.
  5. Fix small problems now.

Following these tips and regularly cleaning your equipment are important for the upkeep of dryers. “Many times during a motor replacement, the maintenance personnel will set the impellor onto the shaft of a motor and not allow for an adequate overlapping of the inlet cone into the impellor,” Klemmer says. This can affect the motor’s performance.

Keller says to keep “your dryer running as intended by the manufacturer will ensure you are operating at optimal energy efficiency.”
