Recent Projects - Laundromats / Car washes
Towle Whitney designs and builds variable speed booster pump systems for laundromats / car washes of all sizes. Because the water in
these facilities is not critical, usually only a SIMPLEX booster is required.  A small description of each project specifies the parameters of
plumbing setup, the  basis for booster system design and the information regarding the system that was installed:
Multi-bay Car wash - Chicago, IL
High water pressure is essential for proper operation of each car
wash bay. This car wash did not have good pressure from the city
water supply which resulted in unsatisfactory operation of the car
wash bays.

A 2HP pump system mounted on a chair style frame was
designed and supplied by Towle Whitney. Even at high GPM, this
system boosted the city water pressure to allow all bays.  

Model #                     TW1000-70W-40 Chair Frame
Pump HP                   2HP
Volume                      70 GPM total
Boost                         40 PSI
Incoming                   35 PSI
Discharge:                70 PSI
Laundromat - Chicago, IL
High water pressure is essential for proper operation washing
machines in a laundromat.   Sizing is important, as all machines
could be running simultaneously, or maybe only one at a time.  
Regardless of the number of machines, the pipe sizing and inlet
pressure most likely will dictate the size of the pump.

A 1.5HP pump system mounted on a chair style frame was
designed and supplied by Towle-Whitney. This system boosted
the city water pressure even at high GPM usage from all the car
was bays, thus increasing the productivity of the car wash.

Model #                     TW1000-40W-40 Flag Frame
Pump HP                  1.5HP
Volume                     40 GPM total
Pipe                           1 1/2"
Boost                         40 PSI
Incoming                   45 PSI
Discharge                 80 PSI
Laundromat - South Carolina
Because of the poor water quality, the Car Wash had installed an
RO system, which requires a non-brass installation.  Originally a
SCH80 TEE was used, but was subsequently changed to 304SS.

Because of the extremely LOW incoming pressure, a high head
2HP pump system was required.

Model #                     TW1000-50W-50 Flag Frame
Pump HP                   2HP
Volume                      50 GPM total
Pipe                            2"
Boost                         50 PSI
Incoming                   20 PSI
Discharge                 70 PSI
