Advanced Solution Application
PDQ is recognized as the industry’s leader when applying fluids, solutions and sealants to vehicles due to the availability of efficient and consistent wash systems that cover the wide variety of vehicles that drivers bring to wash sites. The Tandem Surfline can also sense open-bed pickup trucks, eliminating the application of various solutions in areas where it is not required, reducing the cost per wash. All fluid, solutions and sealants are now provided from off-board pump panels and pump stations, which increases serviceability and adds durability to the Tandem Surfline.
As with all PDQ Wash Systems, you can also increase your revenue per vehicle with upselling features that will allow your customers to customize their wash experience.

The Tandem Surfline can be equipped with high-pressure side blasters and an overhead high-pressure manifold. This hybrid friction and touch-free wash technology allows you to differentiate your wash site from your competition. Each side arm will accurately profile the vehicle and offers powerful rotating nozzles that focus on the vehicle’s lower body sides. In addition to these side blasters, there is an optional high-pressure top manifold that can assist with snow and ice removal, provide faster rinsing and, of course, superior cleaning performance.
Advanced Tire and Wheel Cleaners
One of the most difficult areas of vehicles to clean are the wheels. Drivers are willing to pay more to have dirty wheels cleaned; with the Tandem Surfline there are multiple cleaning technologies in play to meet even the most demanding consumer needs.
PDQ’s TriPlex Wheel Cleaning System takes tire scrubbing to a new level. During the process, each tire receives a chemical application allowing for dwell time and the wheel receives an intense bi-directional rotational scrubbing, which is followed by a full-wheel high-pressure blast.
If tire scrubbers are not your style, that’s OK. The Tandem Surfline can be equipped with touch-free high-pressure wheel and tire cleaners. With up to 1,000 psi of washing pressure, these strategically positioned zero-degree rotating nozzles will blast off the dirt and grime from those difficult-to-clean wheel/rim areas. Advanced software built into the Tandem Surfline allows you to do double wheel passes and/or clean the entire rocker panel between the wheels. The ultimate in wheel-cleaning flexibility!
The Tandem Surfline can be equipped with a variety of drying options. There is a completely integrated drying system for smaller bays, as well as a stand-alone dryer in either a four- or six-producer configuration. The Tandem Surfline is also available with the SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System. This feature uses motion in the center two producers to push water off the vehicle’s top surface, which allows the two outside producers to focus on drying the sides of the vehicle. The SwingAir option is available on both integrated and stand-alone drying systems.
The Tandem Surfline also offers PDQ’s advanced FlashDry System, which reduces the time required to complete the drying cycle. The concept is simple: it’s easier to keep water in motion than it is to start motion. The high-velocity air keeps the rinse water rapidly moving across the vehicle, not allowing water to settle on the surface for a quality dry in an efficient manner.
High-Pressure Side Cleaners/Gatling Guns
Differentiate yourself from your competitors with either High-Pressure Tower Side Blasters or Gatling Guns. Both offer enhanced cleaning capabilities for the wheel, tire and rocker-panel areas. Designed to work in conjunction with underbody service lines, these high-pressure components are powerful cleaning tools.
