Car Wash EquipmentHawk offers a wide range of car wash equipment including high pressure washers, accessories and vacuum cleaners.

It is very important to define what type of vehicle cleaning you will be doing and what resources you have available to you (water and power supply) before choosing the correct cleaning equipment. Hawk has a range of mobile or cabinet mounted pressure washers available in electric, petrol or diesel versions. For more information on selecting the correct model read our tips and tricks article.

Range of Car Wash Equipment

For car washing, a high pressure cleaning unit with pressures of between 100 – 150bar is usually required (anything higher and decals may be stripped off vehicle). Cleaners with a volume output of 10 – 15 L/min is sufficient. Truck washing requires a high pressure of 200bar at a volume of 15 – 19 L/min.

For standard car washing applications, a cold water unit is adequate. For more heavy-duty cleaning a hot water pressure washer may be needed.

Precision engineering and the use of high quality materials have enabled Hawk in South Africa to give a comprehensive guarantee to cover their products. A full one year’s warranty covers the workmanship and materials against defects (excluding wear and tear items) on all manufactured units.

Non-foaming Oil

Hawk Non-Foaming OilHawk Oil has been developed in conjunction with a leading oil manufacturer for the Hawk range of high pressure piston pumps. The Hawk oil is non-foaming, thereby reducing the amount of bubbles in the oil, and the amount of air in the bearings. This in turn increases the lubricating properties of the oil. The lack of emulsifiers in the oil reduces its ability to become milky in humid conditions.
