Rotor Parts Washing System for Helicopter Gear Boxes

Background:

This company manufactures a wide range of civil and military helicopters.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

They needed to clean gear boxes to the most stringent cleaning requirements.

Solution/System:

The solution was a return-to-operator (RTO) parts washing system. This RTO-R-6000-PCS washer rotates the parts around a horizontal axis as they are being sprayed to flush out complex passages.  A dolly transports the parts in and out of the spray chamber.  This system has four tanks and a five stage cleaning cycle: a wash stage followed by three rinse stages and a dry stage.  The company has reported to us that before this machine was implemented into their cleaning program they only had a 20% parts approval rating.  After only a few months implementation, they are on track to reach an 85% approval rating with projected subsequent further improvement ratings.

Parts Washer for Robotic Work Cell – Case Study 22090

Dual Vertical Door Parts Washer
Background:

This company is a leading, global aerospace manufacturer for both commercial and defense industries.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

They needed a parts cleaning system that would integrate with their existing robotic work cell system.

Solution/System:

This RTO-2000 industrial parts washer is a two (2) chamber jet washer for a robotic work cell… one robot loads and unloads the washing system as well as other machining centers. The two cleaning chambers are segregated so that each works independently of the other. Parts being cleaned are integrated fan blade components for the aerospace industry.

Automatic valves for the water and air pathways make this possible. The cleaning cycle has 4 stages: wash, rinse, fresh rinse, and dry. Features include: 2 chambers/2 turntables, automatic roll-out dollies, three heated tanks, Ethernet communications, and more.

Parts Washer for Jet Engine Overhaul – Case Study 20901

Twin Precision Cleaning Systems for Aerospace Parts
Center Drop Manifold for Aerospace Parts
Background:

The customer is a major re-builder of jet engines. They work in conjunction with the leading jet engine manufacturers.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

The customer needed to replace an older parts washer that could not achieve the required cleanliness levels. The major problem was rinse water contamination. The parts held a lot of wash water which overwhelmed the small rinse tank.

Solution/System:

Twin model RD-6000-ULT systems designed for final, precision cleaning of critical jet engine components. These parts cleaning systems have a roll-in door and a spray/dry manifold that automatically lowers into the parts. Both the interior and exterior surfaces are directly impacted as the machines cycle through the following stages… wash, rinse, fresh rinse, and dry. Other features include part collision sensor for the ID manifold, all stainless steel construction, steam heat for the tanks, vacuum system, viewing window, mist collector, 10″ HMI screen, etc. Each machine features a two(2) tank system with a 60″ diameter turntable and 60″ work height.
