Car Wash System

March 26, 2012

Car washes are the place where sudsy water and layers of dirt meet. This tough environment is the battlefield of clean and dirty, and it needs equipment that is reliable over time. Groschopp’s PM8028 motor with a right angle worm gearbox was up for the challenge. The previous supplier struggled to keep water out of the motor, but with Groschopp’s IP66 design, this wasn’t an issue.

Additional design challenges included gear motor space restraints and mounting the gear motor to a swinging boom arm in the car wash system. The right angle gearmotor easily fit the sizing requirement. By using a hollow bore design, Groschopp was able to mate their motor to the custom shaft of the boom arm.


Challenges

  • Tight space requires right angle gearbox
  • Protection against mist and streams of water
  • NEMA frame output
  • Must mate with custom shaft at the car wash

Solution

  • 24v PM8028 motor with right angle worm gearbox
  • Hollow bore to match the car wash’s custom shaft (compatible for replacements)
  • NEMA frame right angle reducer with custom IEC flange
  • IP66 protection (complete protection against dust and high pressure water sprays)

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.


Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
