You can say goodbye to scraping, defrosting and defogging. The heated windscreen wash system (On-Demand) model that we are selling is designed to dramatically improve the performance of the washer system. The unit provides heated fluid when the factory washer system is used.
Installation is designed to be as easy as possible to aid DIY fitment
This is how the Heatshot system operates in "On-Demand" mode:
The unit starts to operate when the ignition is on (engine running) and battery voltage level is higher than 13.0 volts.
Once the unit is activated, the washer fluid inside its heating chamber will be heated and kept within pre- determined temperature limits (125 – 135°F), so there is always hot fluid inside the unit's heating chamber which can be used by a driver for cleaning the windscreen.
Each time the driver activates the factory installed washer system, heated washer fluid is applied to the windscreen for approximately the first 3 seconds of spray. Three seconds of the spray delivers approx. 50-60 cc of fluid that is considered sufficient amount of fluid for one spray.
The next portion of heated washer fluid is available in 10-20 seconds (depending on ambient conditions).
In extreme temperatures, it is essential that the correct screenwash (fit for purpose) is used in conjunction with Heatshot, to ensure the resevoir does not freeze.
Heatshot will reccommend suitable screenwash,to deliver the maximum efficency and safer driving.
The unit uses full power of 50 Amps for 30 seconds to heat the washer fluid up to pre-determined temperature limits (125 – 135°F), and minimal power to keep it within these limits.
The unit's power consumption is less than 2 Amps per hour.
Once the unit starts to operate (engine is running), it will heat the washer fluid in approximately 30 seconds; driver operates the washer system manually to spray the heated fluid onto the windscreen.
Recommended duration of spray is 3 seconds. Driver can spray as many times as he wants. Best results are achieved when time intervals between sprays are approx. 20 seconds.
