What Type Of Parts Can I Clean In A Front Load Parts Washer?

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Front loading parts washer cabinets are typically used for commercial parts washing systems to assist auto-repair shops, manufacturers, or other industrial parts cleaning applications. These machines are versatile, making it possible to save considerable time and labor commonly associated with manual parts cleaning.

How Does A Front Load Parts Washer Work?

To use this aqueous washer, a technician must put the dirty parts into the washer, turn a knob, and walk away. It’s really that simple. Within less than an hour, once filthy parts will emerge grime-free and ready to be used. You won’t have to worry about harmful solvents, health hazards or painstaking brushing (hand-cleaning).

Here’s a more in-depth explanation: High-pressure front load parts washers clean manufacturing parts using a combination of heated aqueous based detergent with high-pressure spray nozzles that can spray in multiple directions.

Spray nozzles positioned along the interior wall, ceiling and underside of the machine and turntable spray heated high-pressure streams of cleaning solution at the objects loaded inside the massive front-loading cabinet.

What Type Of Parts Can I Clean?

Front load parts washers are best suited for cleaning and degreasing small engine components, automotive components, car parts, heavy equipment parts, tools, and much more. Front load washers are also designed for newly manufactured parts. These machines have the ability to successfully clean machine coolant, machining oils, drawing compounds and other soils associated with manufacturing operations.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Front Loading Parts Washer?

Typically, front-loading cabinet washers are designed to be compact so they require minimal floor space and will fit into tight manufacturing work cells. Besides requiring minimal floor space, front load washers help to save considerable time, since parts are cleaned automatically, as opposed to employees spending countless hours scrubbing parts by hand.

Yet, labor savings is only one of the many benefits of an aqueous parts washer. They also have a considerable effect on the safety and health of your employees. If you currently use hazardous solvents in your cleaning application, your employees’ health may be at risk. A switch to the aqueous based cleaning solution used with our parts washers will minimize the risks to your employees and save you money on costly worker compensation claims.
