The tool which is used to wipe away the snow, rain, and debris from the front screen of a car, truck, train, or bus is known as a windshield wiper. It is a legal need for every vehicle.
The Windshield wiper is also known as a windscreen wiper. Every vehicle minimum has two wipers on its front window. Typically, a wiper includes an arm of metal.
On one end of the viper, there is a pivot, and on the other end, there is a blade of rubber connected to it. This wiper works with the aid of a electric motor.
The blade of the wiper moves from side to side over the window, pushing water, ice, or debris to the floor. Contemporary vehicles have modern wipers, i.e., their speed is adjustable.
Along with windshield wiper, there is another system known as the windshield washer system. This system helps to enhance and amplify the function of the wiper in a dry or icy environment.
Windshield system showers water on the front screen of the vehicle with the help of its nozzle. It assists in removing dust or dirt from the window screen with the help of wiper blades.
If it showers antifreeze fluid, then the purpose of this is to remove ice or snow from the screen.
Some vehicles also have heaters on windows to melt down the ice or snow from the screen. These heaters are used in winter conditions, especially when it is snow falling.
The first try of making a wiper for vehicles has been attempted by George J. Capewell on 6 August 1896. Pianist Jozef Hofmann and Birmingham also claimed to have been the first who made windscreen wipers.
In 1903, three more people were noticed who patented windshield wipers. These three people are Mary Anderson, John Apjohn, and Robert Douglass. In 1911, Gladstone Adam also became a patent of windshield wipers.
Many people get confused about which type of windshield wiper they should use. Actually, there are three common types of windshield wipers. These are:
- Conventional wiper blades
- Hybrid wiper blades
- Beam wiper blades
Conventional Wiper Blades
They are the most common blades. They consist of a rubber blade connected to a frame of metal. These type of blades need to be changed after six months.
Hybrid Wiper Blades
This type of wiper has a metal blade which is coated with rubber. The best feature of this type of wiper is that it is suitable for all types of weather condition.
Beam Wiper Blades
This type of wiper has blades which are made up of rubber. They are expensive than others. The best feature of this type of wiper is that they are efficient in cleaning the surface and can stay for twice a period of time than conventional wipers.
