WHAT DOES WINDSCREEN WASHER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

windscreen washer

Windscreen wiper

A windscreen wiper or windshield wiper is a device used to remove rain and debris from a windscreen or windshield. Almost all motor vehicles, including trains, watercraft and some aircraft, are equipped with such wipers, which are usually a legal requirement. A wiper generally consists of an arm, pivoting at one end and with a long rubber blade attached to the other. The blade is swung back and forth over the glass, pushing water from its surface. The speed is normally adjustable, with several continuous speeds and often one or more "intermittent" settings. Most automobiles use two synchronized radial type arms, while many commercial vehicles use one or more pantograph arms. High speed aircraft may use bleed air rather than mechanical wipers to save weight and drag; the intended effect is the same.

Definition of windscreen washer in the English dictionary

The definition of windscreen washer in the dictionary is a small nozzle on the bonnet of a motor vehicle, from which jets of water are squirted electronically onto the windscreen to help clean it.
