Pegasus Tech is postulated as the state-of-the-art technology in the car wash world since it is fast, precise and has a fluid movement providing highly efficient results. Despite all these significant characteristics, the main feature of this type of Rollover Units, which makes it more effective, allowing to serves up to 15 vehicles per hour or 1500 vehicles per month, is an integrated system of vehicle scanning. The vehicle is scanned allowing any shape to be washed in complete safety.

Pegasus has a compact and strong design: the compact dimensions allow a grade performance in a narrow space. It also provides the ability to optimize the spaces in the washing bays and facilitate the installation in narrow or pre-existing sites: thanks to the bending foam arms, space can be reduced by 30 cm more. With the standard length rails of 9 metres is possible to carry out a complete wash of a 5,3m long vehicle. A standard rail length is 9000 mm. The typical space needed in front of the vehicle is 1690 mm. A space needed behind the vehicle: 2000 mm. A maximum vehicle length is 5300 mm. By increasing the length of the rail, the washing length will be increased by the same length:

By diminishing the length of the rail, the washing length will be decreased by the same length. 

The installation of this device in short bays allows an increase of the washing length of at least 60 cm. Maximum vehicle’s wash length with standard rails will be 5,9 m. With the installation of the short-track device, the washing length can be increased by 1,3 m in relation to the standard. Maximum vehicle’s wash length with standard rails will be 6,6 m.

A solid structure and the reliability of Pegasus Tech are mainly due to the development of the machine without the use of welding in assembly. Importantly, the profitable of this type of highly efficient unit is starting from 450 washes per month until 1500 washes per month. Furthermore, a modern and futuristic design together with the most innovative technologies gives Pegasus Tech the lead in the Ceccato range of products.

How does Pegasus Tech operate?

The washing process includes 2 main phases: the first washing phase with rotating brushes, followed by the drying phase (with max consumption 15,84 kW) 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 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. In addition to the phases of washing and drying, the Pegasus 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:

Furthermore, 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.

SMART SHAPE SYSTEM and PROFILE CONTROL TECH

Pegasus Tech has an integrated system of vehicle scanning that makes the process more precise, giving the highly-efficient result. The unit is equipped with an intelligent and sensitive system that detects and stores accurately the contour of the vehicle and the special shapes by a photocell set, adjusting the washing and drying components instantly. The action is fluid, with no stops.

The Profile Control Tech system integrates these features with the SMART SHAPE system (intelligent brush control) so that pick-ups, ski boxes, bicycle racks are not a problem anymore, even in self-service. The wash is safer and faster. The cleaning is more accurate.

Pegasus Tech is available in two following versions:

PREMIUM VERSION is characterized by the horizontal high pressure, wash and drying phases being contoured on the car. The water jets and the air flows are directed by an asymmetrical deflector to be able to perfectly follow the vehicle’s shape also in the front and in the back of the car.

AIR PLUS VERSION. The rotation of the water and air supply systems is the winning solution to improve the washing and drying results. The high pressure sprayed with a synchronous movement, not only gives the client a marvellous perception of quality.

The top dryers generate oscillating air flows with an elliptical trajectory optimal for the natural flow of the water on the car and so down on the ground: this guarantees a great combination between wash and dry. The combined and synchronized action of the rotation/translation and the possibility to customize the speed of the air plus system, determine an effective, safe and appreciated washing/drying result.

Furthermore, all versions can be supplied with different working heights and widths.

In addition, the operation and efficiency of a gantry are proportional to the ability to customize washing phases/times and to combine the various functions simultaneously. Pegasus Tech is the most optimized rollover in the CarWash market. It allows as many operations as possible in the shortest possible time.
