Seasoned car wash operators know that automatic tire shining can be a huge money-maker. But now, that revenue doesn't have to carry the price tag of high aggravation. The DuraShiner delivers consistent shine, "Rim-to-Tread", with as little as one ounce of chemical per vehicle — less than half what other designs require.
- Spotty coverage
- Wasted chemical
- Slippery tunnel floors
- Sling on customer vehicles
The patented DuraShiner is a fully programmable tire dresser that is unmatched in its application quality, minimal chemical usage, and revenue generating opportunity.
The DuraShiner is designed with a 'cascade' chemical delivery manifold and 15 individual 8-inch foam wheels that are beveled on their lead in edges. Together these 2 features prevent over saturation of chemical, eliminate excessive chemical being trapped in outer wheel treads, and significantly reduce the chemical slinging effect that commonly occurs with other competitive tire dressing equipment.
The DuraShiner also features ChemCycle Technology. This technology further reduces chemical consumption by automatically rotating the applicator wheels to keep the fluid in motion, the sponges properly saturated, and valuable chemical off your tunnel's floor.
With the DuraShiner, the bottom line is the dressing stays on the tire, and off your floor, walls, and customers' vehicles. And your profit stays where it belongs — in your pocket!
Disposable Applicator Rollers
The DuraShiner features 15 soft, round foam applicator rollers that readily glide over tire sidewalls to provide “even better than hand applied” results.
Part of the secret is in the foam’s density. It’s soft enough to contour to the sidewall for "Rim-to-Tread"℠ coverage, but dense enough to hold chemical in suspension for precise application coverage with virtually no chemical waste.
Because these foam applicator rollers are independent from one another, they not only accommodate the moving tire sidewall more effectively but can also be individually replaced which holds down maintenance expenses.
The ChemPress system keeps the applicator rollers automatically primed for unmatched "Rim-to-Tread" coverage.
Because a great shine starts with a great prime, DuraShiner features an automatic priming system that readies applicator rollers at the push of a button. While the PLC dispenses exactly the chemical needed, the ChemPress rollers rotate against the applicator rollers.
This compression pulls chemical into the applicator rollers through capillary action, while spreading an even coat of dressing over the applicator surface. The result ... perfect "Rim-to-Tread" coverage every time.
ChemCycle roller rotation evenly disperses chemical throughout applicator rollers to keep the chemical on the tire and off the floor, walls and vehicle.
This ChemCycle technology enables operators to set the entire roller boom to rotate one-quarter turn at your predefined intervals. This rotation keeps the applicator rollers evenly saturated, and prevents gravity from pulling the dressing onto your tunnel floor.
The DuraShiner is the only tire shiner to feature a tool-free boom which opens with one hand, enabling operators to replace a full set of applicator rollers in five to seven minutes.
Competitive shiners require pliers & wrenches, plus a minimum of 1 hour of labor to completely replace their applicator pads. In fact, one unit even has a total of 32 cotter pins located on bottom edge of the pads that are nearly impossible to get out.
The DuraShiner is dramatically different from its competition. With the DuraShiner a complete set of applicator rollers can be replaced in as little as five minutes and with no tools required. Simply open the tool-free boom with its quick-release knob and the entire thing swings out with one hand for trouble-free applicator roller rotation or replacement.
Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
The DuraShiner® CV features a PLC which delivers precision chemical metering, providing real-time responsiveness to meet your wash's tire shining demand.
With the PLC chemical management controller, you can set the precise time and amount of chemical dispensed onto your application rollers. This ensures that you are delivering a perfect tire dressing application with no chemical sling or waste.
