Multi-Stage In-Line Conveyor Parts Washers
Flat Belt pressure Spray Washer
Put Super Spray to work washing your parts. Part parameters and flexibility in the design is key for flat belt cleaning. Parts travel through the tunnel on a flat or woven wire belt with contaminants being removed by powerful water spray in combination with a specified cleaning agent, temperature and/or adjustable/different spray nozzles.
Part process through system is based on production numbers needed and surface feet per minute on the belt speed. Sample part processing can evaluate and validate sizing, pump pressures and processing stages needed to meet the finished part specification.
Standard system configuration used heated wash zone, rinse zone, and blow-off or hot air
dry finish depending on the part parameters. Filtration and oil separation are always very important for part and solution quality.
3 Stage- Wash, Rinse/Inhibit and Blow-off Dryer Conveyor Washing System
Variable speed stainless steel belt, all stainless steel construction, 2 filtration units, moisture blow-off section with 10Hp regenerative blower, 6 each 15kw heaters (4 for wash, 2 for rinse),automatic solution make-up system, removable stainless steel chip basket, exhaust duct connections and emergency stop button on both ends.
- Minimum shop floor space required for increased productivity per square foot.
- Reduced materials handling with production number increase means labor savings.
- Quick access to features and tanks for minimal maintenance procedures means less downtime.
- Multitude of applications for general surface part cleaning to stringent cleanliness specifications for aerospace, automotive, stamping operations and bearing blanks/races.
Concept With flow through or continuous flow cleaning systems:
The basic idea behind conveyorized cleaning systems is based on the concept of high though-put continuous flow with minimal handling of parts during the cleaning, precoating, surface preperation and preassembly. Systems can be with two different drive systems. Fixed speed for single/dedicated product. Variable speed for the wider range of different products to be processed through systems.
Pumping sizing can be of extreme importance in any washing system. Several factors must be considered for pump sizing with volumes and pressures.
- Area to be covered (part parameters)
- Materials to be removed from product
- Speed/Production rate
Multi-stage systems can oncprporate closed-loop solution systems for recirculation of cleaning medium and rinse-to-drain for rinsing with Rust Preventitive or DI Water prior to a drynig/blow-off stage.
- 360 spray nozzle/manifold setup
Many nozzle styles available for different direction and cross flow spray patterns.
Standard Size Systems:
|Belth Width||Tunnel Height||Wash/Rinse Zone|
|PW 12-48||12″||12″||48″ hood 3′ spray with manifolds|
|PW 18-48||18″||12″||48″ hood 3′ spray with manifolds|
|PW 24-48||24″||24″||48″ hood 3′ spray with manifolds|
How dry is dry?
Absolutely dry usually calls for a true heated dryer running at 235, as a part pass through.
Blow-off dry is another preffered method throughout our industry. Function is to remove water droplets to greatly assist flash drying using stored part temperature to evaporate moisture on the surface.
What is the difference between a regenerative blower system?
Combination of a blower and a low pressure compressor. Due to their nature (regens) do warm the air delivered anywhere from 30 to 50 degrees above the surrounding air. typical uses to “squeegee” water off of relatively flat, smooth surfaces.
High volume/high velocity blowers where blind holes, recessed or large area with varying surface profile need water droplets or moisture removed. providing means for the air to exit the unit is primary concern for these blow-off systems.
There are so many different configurations, custom designed for your procedure.
Semi-automated systems with minimal operator need to load/unload parts. Single plant location. indexing belts start and stop at each stage, which then robot/automation can work to load/unload production.
Baskets and fixture all can be utilized with the method of cleaning.
