Cellular Parts Washer for Cleaning Bearings
The RTO-1000 is a “return-to-operator” parts cleaning system. It has a U-shaped conveyor that places the load and unload areas on the same end of the system (so that only one operator is needed or, as in this case, so that the customer could have total automation using the smallest footprint.) This particular system is cleaning bearing races.
The 4″ wide conveyor belt is plastic with pusher flights. Side rails prevent the parts from sliding off the edges. The bearing races are spray washed on one side, rinsed around the U-turn and dried along the return leg. There are 2 heated tanks; the wash solution and rinse water are recirculated.
