Automotive parts washers are necessary due to vehicle parts becoming dirty and grimy over time. Also, automobile engine components are exposed to several types of contaminants, which can contribute to energy inefficiency and degradation of functionality. So, what are some of the most effective parts washers for the automotive industry to help with these issues? Here are a few to consider.
Mini Belt Washers
The mini belt spray washer is a compact, energy-efficient parts cleaning machine. The smaller washer provides a simple to use and low maintenance option that is beneficial to the automotive industry. Designed for in-line cleaning of machined parts, stampings, cold headed, and deep-drawn parts, the mini belt washer offers up to three tanks for washing, rinsing, and rustproofing. Additionally, the energy-efficient dryer incorporates a regenerative blow off with stainless steel air knives. Consider additional options for better quality cleaning Some of these include:
- In-line Filtration
- Chip Baskets
- Longer Tanks
- Incline Belt and Immersion Spray Wash
- Programmable Controllers
- Vertical Chain Conveyor Washer
Vertical Chain Conveyor Washers
A challenge for the automotive industry is to effectively remove chips, fines, and coolant from valve covers and completely dry parts while also meeting stringent millipore specifications. Vertical chain conveyor parts washers utilize front loading and unloading, variable indexing cycles, and dual bag filters at each station. The parts index into immersion tanks with turbulence cleaning as well as rinse and rust inhabitant baths, all with submerged high-volume direct sprays for chip removal. Also, a fresh filtered solution spray is used to finish before a complete energy-efficient drying cycle with recirculated air.
The vertical chain conveyor washer is ideal for one piece at-a-time inline parts washing combining both spray washing and agitated immersion cleaning with drying in one small footprint. This machine doesn’t take up too much floor space and takes advantage of a vertical conveyor movement. These immersion cleaning machines are ideal for ultrasonic washing and rinsing for precision cleaning requirements.
Large Rotary Drum Washer
This is a highly effective and heavy-duty washer with an energy-efficient modular design. This machine saves facility floor space as well as thousands of dollars per year in energy costs. The rotary drum is most beneficial for cleaning and drying delicate battery cans, deep drawn and automotive stampings, machined parts, fasteners, tubular rivets, and automotive castings without damage.
Rotary drum washers are also ideal for removing stamping oil from drawn components while processing large volumes of parts without damage.
