car wash operators know that automatic tire shining
can be a huge money maker. But now, that revenue
doesn't have to carry the price tag of high aggravation.
Belanger's new DuraShiner® delivers consistent
shine, rim to tread, with as little as one ounce
of chemical per vehicle — less than half
what other designs require.
Here for a video of the Durashiner in action.
Slippery tunnel floors
Sling on customer vehicles
The DuraShiner® is
a fully programmable tire dresser that is unmatched
in its application quality,
minimal chemical usage, and revenue generating
The DuraShiner® is
designed with a patent-pending chemical delivery
manifold and 15 individual
8-inch foam wheels that are beveled on their
lead in edges.
Together these 2 features prevent over saturation
of chemical, eliminate excessive chemical
being trapped in outer wheel treads, and significantly
reduce the chemical slinging effect that
occurs with other competitive tire dressing
The DuraShiner® also
features ChemCycle™ Technology.
This technology further reduces chemical
consumption by automatically rotating the applicator
to keep the fluid in motion, the sponges
properly saturated, and valuable chemical off
In fact, DuraShiner® is
so revolutionary, it has five individual patents
pending. With the DuraShiner®,
the bottom line is the dressing stays
on the tire, and off your floor, walls, and customers'
And your profit stays where it belongs — in
Disposable Applicator Rollers —
The DuraShiner® features 15 soft, round foam
applicator rollers that readily glide over tire
sidewalls to provide “even better than hand
Part of the secret is in the foam’s density.
It’s soft enough to contour to the sidewall
for rim-to-tread coverage, but dense enough to
hold chemical in suspension for precise application
coverage with virtually no chemical waste.
these foam applicator rollers are independent
from one another, they not only accommodate
moving tire sidewall more effectively but can
also be individually replaced which holds down
The ChemPress™ system keeps the applicator
rollers automatically primed for unmatched
Because a great shine starts with
a great prime, DuraShiner® features an automatic
priming system that readies new applicator rollers
at the push
of a button. While the PLC dispenses exactly
the chemical needed, the ChemPress™ rollers
rotate against the applicator rollers.
pulls chemical into the applicator rollers
through capillary action,
an even coat of dressing over the applicator
surface. The result ... perfect rim-to-tread
ChemCycle™ Technology —
ChemCycle™ roller rotation evenly disperses
chemical throughout applicator rollers
to keep the chemical on the tire and off the floor,
walls and vehicle.
This patent-pending ChemCycle™ technology
enables operators to set the entire roller
boom to rotate one-quarter turn at your predefined
intervals. This rotation keeps the applicator
saturated, and prevents gravity from pulling
the dressing onto your tunnel floor.
Tool-Free Boom —
The DuraShiner® is the only tire shiner
to feature a tool-free boom which opens
with one hand, enabling
operators to replace a full set of applicator
rollers in five to seven minutes.
Competitive shiners require pliers & wrenches,
plus a minimum of 1 hour of labor to completely
replace their applicator pads. In fact, one unit
a total of 32 cotter pins located on bottom edge
of the pads that are nearly impossible to get out.
The DuraShiner® is dramatically
different from its competition. With the DuraShiner® a
complete set of applicator rollers can be replaced
in as little
as five minutes and with no tools required. Simply
open the tool-free boom with its quick-release
knob and the entire thing swings out with one hand
trouble-free applicator roller rotation or replacement.
Logic Controller (PLC)
Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) —
The DuraShiner® features a PLC which delivers
precision chemical metering, providing real-time
responsiveness to meet your wash's tire shining demand.
With the PLC chemical management
controller, you can set the precise time and amount
dispensed onto your application rollers. This
you are delivering a perfect tire dressing application
with no chemical sling or waste.
