Cleaning Solutions for Fasteners

BE’s rotary basket parts washers, rotary drum washers, and immersion washers are highly robust, fully automated, and will meet your application requirements depending on your needs.

Our drum washers are widely used in the fastener industry as they combine spray and immersion technologies. Additionally, they are capable of handling higher throughputs and can be situated at the end of a conveyor for continuous flow. For batch washing, BE also provides rotary basket parts washers that combine spray and immersion technologies. Lastly, our immersion cleaning systems employ ultrasonics, agitation, “spray under immersion” technology and heated blow-off drying. Our immersion washers can use automated basket indexing. All of the systems mentioned above are designed to handle extreme levels of oil contamination and various complex parts, particularly those with interior channels and bores.

Fastener Cleaning with Better Engineering

Unquestionably, nearly everything in our environment is fastened. Components are held in place by screws, pins, and other fasteners in steel bridges, washing machines, kitchen appliances, furniture, and industrial farm equipment.

Screws and bolts are extremely oily and can cause problems for those utilizing the finished products and the manufacturers. In turn, the remaining impurities may impair a fastener’s functionality, reducing the stability and security of the product’s structure. In sum,  producing the items we use daily is made possible by manufacturers and remanufacturers effectively cleaning fasteners.

Comprehensive technological competence is required to accomplish the highly diverse jobs of cleaning fasteners sustainably and efficiently. Thanks to our fully equipped Parts Testing Lab, we can conduct cleaning experiments with initially contaminated parts under close-to-production circumstances. To ensure a streamlined process, we create customizable, technically and economically optimized cleaning solutions that account for contaminants, component geometry, pollution, cleanliness, and throughput requirements.
