In vehicle washing lines system, plastic hoses connect the water tank pump to various water sprayers in vehicles, such as windscreen wipers, headlights, sensors and cameras. The challenge is to minimise the path between these elements by adapting to the complex geometries and limited spaces of modern cars. ILPEA, an innovation leader in this field, is continuously working on optimising the adaptability, flexibility and weight of plastic pipes to meet the changing demands of the automotive industry.
Plastic pipes play a crucial role in the efficient transport of water within vehicle washing systems. These convoluted pipes are designed to seamlessly connect the water tank pump to various sprayers. By using mono or multi-layer plastic materials, these pipes offer excellent corrosion resistance and ensure a reliable flow of water to the various vehicle components. Thanks to their high-quality construction, plastic pipes minimise water leakage and pressure losses, resulting in optimised performance and efficient cleaning capability.
One of the main challenges in designing vehicle washing lines is adapting to the increasingly complex geometries of modern cars. As vehicles become more compact and take up less space, the routing of water transport lines becomes a critical consideration. Plastic pipes excel in this field, providing the flexibility to pass through complex vehicle designs. At ILPEA we take particular importance on geometric adaptability. By constantly innovating and refining our products, we ensure that plastic pipes are specifically designed to fit into tight spaces, effectively connecting various components without compromising the integrity of the system.
In the automotive industry, weight optimisation is a key factor in improving vehicle performance and efficiency. Plastic pipes offer a significant advantage in this area, as they are inherently lightweight and cheaper compared to alternative materials such as metal or rubber-based materials. By using plastic tubes in car wash systems, car manufacturers can reduce the overall weight of the vehicle while maintaining the necessary functionality. This weight reduction not only contributes to improved fuel economy, but also allows for more efficient handling and performance. ILPEA’s focus on weight flexibility ensures that its plastic pipes match the automotive industry’s constant search for lightweight designs.
Plastic pipes are essential components of vehicle washing systems, enabling efficient transport of water to the various sprayers. Thanks to ILPEA’s commitment to adaptability and optimisation, these plastic tubes integrate seamlessly into the increasingly complex geometries and tight spaces of modern vehicles. By using these lightweight and versatile tubes, automotive manufacturers can achieve both functionality and weight reduction. As the automotive industry evolves, advances in plastic tube technology continue to drive the optimisation of washing lines, resulting in improved performance and customer satisfaction.
