Dependability, trusted quality and outstanding performance make Cat Pumps the most frequently used pump for car washes. That’s why over 85% of all car wash owners rely on Cat Pumps to keep their washes operating at high-capacity.

Typically, the rigorous schedules of car washes operate on a 24/7 business model, and the high-frequency use of the chemical, environment, pump cycling and water quality are demanding on equipment. Cat Pumps has a wide variety of pump options to exceed basic requirements, based on wash type and location. We provide the following high-pressure pumps:

  • Self-serve
  • Touch-free and friction automatics
  • Roll-over
  • Tunnel
  • Prep
  • Detailing applications

Self-Serve Car Wash
Belt or direct-drive pumps are designed for this application and run 3 - 5 GPM at 800 - 1200 PSI. The belt-driven pump runs slower, so it extends pump life, which saves you money. A direct-drive pump mounts to the motor with a bell housing and is connected with a flex coupler, creating a highly compact pump and simplified motor assembly.

Touch-Free and Friction Automatics, Roll-Over Wash & Tunnel Wash
Automatic, Roll-Over and Tunnel washes use pumps rated from 18 GPM - 45 GPM with pressures of 900 - 1,200 PSI for high-pressure washing and/or rinsing. High-pressure pumps can also be used for undercarriage, wheel and rocker panel wash. Dependable and long-lasting pumps are critical for keeping up with the demanding pace of these washes. The wash can easily provide up to 500,000 washes in the equipment lifecycle.

Prep Guns
For front bumpers, wheel wells, rocker panels and wind shields, prep guns are used to remove the following prior to the vehicle entering the tunnel wash:

  • Heavy soil
  • Dirt
  • Bugs
  • Snow
  • Ice

Attended washes are usually set up with two guns for intricate detailing. Prep units can consist of two separate pumps, each providing 4 - 5 GPM. They can also be a single higher flow pump doing 9 - 10 GPM. General operating pressure for prep guns is 800 – 1,200 PSI.
