The ProTouch Tandem - an innovative design that takes friction cleaning to a new level.


PDQ has pioneered a new industry defining vehicle cleaning method with the ProTouch® Tandem. This superior wash system incorporates both touch-free and friction, giving operators who prefer the "clean" produced by friction systems a new choice. The ProTouch Tandem's full-body detergent coverage and simplified two brush engineering provides consistent cleaning performance with minimal brush contact. On average, the ProTouch Tandem touches the vehicle up to 70% less than five brush car wash systems on the market.

With the widest top brush coverage in the industry, the foam brushes are torque sensitive to monitor the contour of the vehicle and provide low-force cleaning power. The side-profiling, high-pressure wash arms effectively remove stubborn soil from the vehicle's surface. Plus, the three stage wheel cleaning system includes chemical application, rotating soft rim scrubbers and high pressure wheel blasters.

Key Components

Dual Bridge

The patent-pending

ProTouch Tandem two bridge design

allows multiple cleaning processes to take place at one time speeding up the wash, versus a linear process common with most other friction systems. The belt driven bridges work in tandem to easily glide over the vehicle, adjusting their speeds and covering gaps to ensure the vehicle is completely covered. The ProTouch Tandem is also capable of washing oversized SUV's and dually trucks. Unlike other friction type systems, the expansive foam top and single rotational side brush configuration creates an entirely open wash bay.

Advanced Tire & Wheel Scrubbers

New Triplex Wheel System technology takes tire scrubbing to a new level of customer satisfaction. During the process, each tire receives a chemical application allowing for dwell time, next the wheel rim receives an intense circular rotational scrubbing, and then the full wheel receives a high pressure blast.


PDQ's FlashDry system adds virtually no additional time for dryer service. The three step process begins with the back bridge applying a protectant. Next the front bridge applies a spot free rinse with rain arch, which is instantly followed by forced air from the integrated dryer. The high velocity air keeps the rinse water moving in rapid motion across the vehicle, not allowing it to settle on the vehicles surface.

Features & Benefits Summary

  • Virtual Treadle® makes it easier for customers to drive into and out of the wash bay, increasing washes per hour.
  • Faster wash cycle speeds due to its two bridge design - multiple cleaning processes take place simultaneously to increase vehicle throughput.
  • Optional feature of FlashDry® - requires no additional time for dryer service, resulting in more cars per hour.
  • With RiteTouch technology, brushes have a longer life span on average due to less touch time per vehicle.
  • Unique brush design and technology allows for the washing of large SUV's and dually trucks.
  • Overhead systems tend to last longer and hold up better than floor mounted systems.
  • Low maintenance, free standing or cross beam mounting.
  • Built-in web interface - change wash packages, view reports and diagnose issues from anywhere in the world.
