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.
