High-grade Conveyors for High-grade Car Wash


  • Customer background
    Car wash owner  
  • Application
    Belt to transport 3 cars through the car wash at the same time  
  • Challenge
    Regular car wash installations are equipped with a chain system on one side of the tires that can scratch and damage the rims. Maintenance difficulties are also a problem for the car wash operators. So they are constantly seeking belts that do not cause any damage and require less maintenance.  
  • Recommended product
    HabasitLINK plastic modular belt M5020 Flat Top Heavy Duty 2"  

A car wash OEM in Taiwan was designing a new installation layout with a new belting system. He decided to incorporate Habasit’s M5020 Flat Top belt as it provides a flat platform with a high level of strength required for this application.

The conveyor system is capable of smoothly moving 3 vehicles simultaneously, from sedans to SUVs to 7-seaters, which in total weigh over 5 tons. Compared with metal chains, plastic modules are more suitable for use in wet conditions since there is no problem with rusting. This means less effort for rust-removal and lubrication. The customer is so satisfied with HabasitLINK plastic modular belts that he plans to use them in all his high-grade car wash installations for the global market.
