HYPERION TECH is the updated patent of the historic Tandem model combines speed and a top-class washing performance. Moreover, this model is 2-3 times more productive compared to other types of car washes.  This is due to the fact that Hyperion Tech with twofold productivity: while one gantry washes, the other dries. The lay-out of the two programmable gantries allows for quick and flexible washing and drying management, significantly reducing overall operation times. As a result, it serves up to 20 vehicles/hour, this is about 2000 cars per month.

HYPERION TECH DESIGN

Design plays a central role in Ceccato’s strategic vision, so manufacturers have created HYPERION TECH as a compact, reliable system with functional and minimalist qualities, but a distinctive design. The solid structure and the reliability of the Hyperion Tech are mainly due to the development of the machine without the use of welding in assembly. In addition, this model has a simple and intuitive interface, activation with chipcard or electronic key and remote management.

ELASTIC WASH 

The washing process is optimized in three dimensions. The side brushes in Hyperion Tech are installed before the horizontal brush. This allows washing perfectly 5m length vehicles, even within 9m rails. The advantage is to install a double gantry in an extremely limited space.

THE DISPLAYS

The displays placed on the front and rear of the system are no longer simple message screens but customer-service tools. Displays placed on columns are made up of backlit icons, making them easy to read by the customers while still in their vehicle.

INTELLIGENT WASH

A distinctive feature of Hyperion Tech is the presence of an intelligent wash system. As a rule, a vehicle’s surface is not perfectly even. Some areas need more power, some a lighter touch. The computer system that traces the vehicle’s profile, combined with the degree of adaptability offered by the control software, allows you to program more re-passing on the parts of the vehicles with the most stubborn stains or dirt, or in the harder to dry places. This means customers get great attention to detail and the highest degree of system control.

 

PREMIUM VERSION

Furthermore, this model is distinguished by the horizontal action of the device, equipped with safety bars along the sides, which carries out the pre-wash, wash and dry phases. The device follows along the vehicle’s profile in perfect alignment, which is memorized in real time. The jets of water and air are directed by an asymmetrical deflector in order to follow the vehicle’s silhouette with maximum precision. The freedom to program and optimize, a hallmark of all Hyperion Tech parts, it duplicates pass cycles at high pressure, with emollient and during the drying phase, ensures a noticeable improvement in wash times, making for a thorough clean.

TSD TURBO SIDE DRYER

TSD turbo side dryer of Hyperion Tech is the solution for eliminating the 'dead spot' typical of most drying phases. In fact, often as the vertical and horizontal currents intersect, they create a vortex which makes the drying less efficient.  TSD places itself between the two currents, eliminating that vortex, giving a perfectly dry vehicle. The improved lateral dryer runs the full height of the car and features increased motor power and noticeably quieter performance.

HEIGHTENED OPTIMISATION

The system’s productivity and efficiency are proportional to the ability to personalize the wash phases/ timing and to combine different functions. Hyperion Tech is the most efficient double gantry in the Car Wash market. This means a greater result with the fewest passages. Hyperion Tech also focuses on efficient use of space that's why the components that make up the system’s pump function are assembled in-house for shorter installation time and less need to reconfigure the car wash area.

WHEEL MASTER

This model has a built-in Wheel Master system, which is designed for washing the vehicles’ tires, sides, and underside. Enhanced by a pair of high-pressure nozzles, in an ideal balance of power and delicate-touch, Wheel Master provides a deep-down clean for even the hardest-to-reach places. Built entirely from stainless steel, it can be used in a variety of modes: soap-spray only, brush only, high-pressure only, or in a combination of all. Furthermore, Wheel Master guarantees products to be sprayed independently over an extended period of time.

PROFILE CONTROL TECH

Hyperion Tech also includes the Profile Control Tech (Smart Brush Control) system, which can reveal the vehicle’s profile in detail thereby ensuring the smoothness of washing action, high quality and fast washing time. The brushes’ gentle touch is guaranteed even at high speeds.

INDOOR INSTALLATION

The washing unit HYPERION TECH can be installed in closed bays. In compliance with the applicable technical norms, if the machine is installed in a closed bay, there shall be at least 50 cm of free space (2) around the perimeter (1) which encloses the working area of the unit. When the necessary space is restricted, for example by columns, the minimum safety distance must be increased by the size of said obstacles. If for any reason, such space is not available, it is compulsory to install specific safety devices. If the safety devices are installed later on, for example after moving the machine to another site, the engineer in charge of the installation shall supply an updated handbook, or add following documents to the existing manual:

OPEN AIR INSTALLATION

It is necessary to leave at least 100 cm free space (2) around the perimeter (1) which encloses the working area of the unit. The area should be marked by yellow and black stripes (delivered with the machine) on the floor (3). The stripes shall be fixed to the floor after completing the installation of the machine and before the unit is handed over to the customer. The information signs dedicated to the operation area must be fixed to suitable support boards that will be placed on the external perimeter of the wash bay in such a way that they can be easily seen by customers.

MIXED INSTALLATIONS 

“Mixed” are those open air installations where there are some side and/or front limitations. In these cases it is necessary to comply with the norms in force for both types of installation; for the open air part it is compulsory to limit the dangerous area with yellow and black stripes, while for the area with side or front obstacles the same safety devices used in the closed bays should be installed.

HYPERION TECH is a washing center for vehicles with two independent mobile gantries. This means that the two gantries roll over the vehicle several times to wash and dry it, whereas the vehicle remains stationary for the whole cycle time. The process includes a first washing phase with rotating brushes, followed by the drying phase during which the water is blown away from the vehicle surface by means of high-pressure air flows. The brushes action is supported by the distribution of water and washes chemicals. Before the drying phase, some wax is distributed on the vehicle in order to make the water flow and obtain a polish finishing of the surfaces.HOW DOES HYPERION TECH WORK?

In addition to the phases of washing and drying, the HYPERION TECH unit can carry out other processes that can be generally summed up in: pre-washing phase and polishing phase. A complete washing process is carried out according to the following sequence of operations:

  1. Pre-washing,
  2. Washing,
  3. Polishing,
  4. Drying.

Each phase can be carried out in different ways. The machine offers multiple choices also in the application of special products which help along the washing and finishing operation such as the pre-wash cleaners, the waxes, the polishing products and the osmotic water.

The HYPERION TECH units are equipped with options such as:

  1. Systems for the distribution of hot/cold pre-wash cleaner, inclinable for the front and rear of the vehicle.
  2. Systems for the distribution of active foam, white and Multicolor®.
  3. A pre-washing system with side and top high-pressure water arches following the vehicle’s contour and nozzles that can be oriented to clean the front and rear parts.
  4. A pre-washing system with side and top medium pressure water arches following the vehicle’s contour and nozzles that can be oriented to clean front and rear parts.

The two mobile units are called 'washing gantry' and 'drying gantry'. The first one is equipped with the brushes and the water and foam delivery system. The second one is equipped with the drying fans, the high-pressure water system, the nozzles for the pre-wash cleaner, wax, hot wax, sonax, and with other specific groups such as the wheel wash brushes WheelMaster. Using the two separate and independent gantries, a partial overlapping of the brush wash and the drying operation can be obtained when needed. Another advantage is that the wheel wash (when the group is installed) can be carried out without stopping the brush wash. These specific features of the double gantry washing unit allow an increase of productivity of about 20-30%, compared to single gantry machines.
