High volume cleaning for stamped parts, small cast die parts, screw machine parts, small plastic parts, and more.
Better Engineering’s line of rotary drum washers is ideal for high-volume, continuous in-line cleaning and drying of small parts. These drum washers combine a smooth tumbling action with immersion and spray technologies and environmentally safe aqueous-based detergents to clean and flush parts such as stamped parts, cast die parts, screw machine parts, small plastic parts, ammunition, and more. The rotating drum has a continuously welded internal helix to tumble and convey the parts forward through one or more cleaning stages.
The drums are available in 14″, 24″, 36″, and 48″ diameters, and the variable speed drum drive is positively driven with a chain. Furthermore, BE tailors the drums to each specific application regarding perforation size, the helix’s pitch, and the helix’s height.
The wet stages can have spray, immersion, or both. In addition, the hot air dryers run as high as 250° F. Up to 90% of the air is recirculated to conserve energy and avoid air blow-out. Customers can now design their own water-based cleaning system using standard modules and accessories without the risk and expense of customization.
With few exceptions, all wetted parts are stainless steel (grade 304). The metalwork, the drum, the pumps, the spray and dry manifolds, etc., are stainless steel. The systems are truly modular in that they can be expanded or changed without a torch or welder.
