Immersion Agitating Washer
Immersion and agitating washers for parts cleaning are defined by mechanical motion within a liquid bath/tank to facilitate a processing objective. Objectives might include removing machining coolants/oils along with chips/debris from the prior manufacturing operation.
Creating a healthier workplace necessitates the removal of toxic solvents, chemicals and hazardous waste. Modern detergent cleaning with milder soaps can achieve dramatic results when the system is set up correctly for the process. “Dynamic Flow,” as we call it, combines agitation with our specialty turbulation features to greatly accelerate and enhance our cleaning function.
With standard or special designs, we can do bottom jets (injectors) shooting up towards the bottom of the platform or sidewall-mounted jets for all types of tubing parts. These combined functions allow our immersion and agitating washers with filtering systems to achieve superior and more consistent results.
For bath longevity and process control, oil skimming and/or an oil coalesce can greatly extend your solution being used. This is as important as maintenance on the machine. Just changing filters can make a tremendous difference with part cleanliness, solution quality/longevity and prettier end results with respect to outward appearance. No one really likes all of those or even some of those white spots.
Typical applications for our immersion agitating washers include:
- Removal of oil and chips from machined components, castings and housings
- Cleaning prior to welding, brazing, deburring or blasting
- Removal of buffing or lapping compounds
- Precision cleaning prior to assembly or final packaging
- General washing for maintenance, rework or remanufacturing
- Tube cleaning
