MacNeil Wash Systems, a supplier to the tunnel car wash industry, announced the assignment of US Patent No. 8,621,707 for its new PowerLock. PowerLock is a lightweight energy saving air valve that allows dryers to operate continuously while preventing air flow between vehicles and minimize peak load charges, resulting in increased energy efficiency and a dramatic cut in kilowatt hour charges. The PowerLock incorporates sound deadening materials, providing a cost-effective way to significantly reduce the sound generated by car wash dryers, resulting in a healthier and quieter car wash environment. When equipped with automatic sensing technology, the PowerLock engages instantaneously to either delay or eliminate drying for pick-up beds or soft-top convertibles, resulting in a safer, cleaner tunnel and increased customer satisfaction. The PowerLock features an all-aluminum construction and stainless steel and UHMW glide surfaces, allowing it to withstand the harsh car wash environment.
