Conveyor Washer for Large Metal Stampings

Background

This company specializes in large metal stampings such as dome covers for pressure tanks. They are cleaning air compressor end caps and blind caps. A large portion of their parts are as large as 48″ diameter x 16″ high. They wanted a large metal stampings conveyor washer to handle these large parts.

Cleaning Challenge

They needed to replace an aging parts washer with a high-speed (45 FPM) conveyor washer to remove a heavy coating of lubricant, as well as most of the black residue, from the hot rolled steel parts. The system also had to handle the chlorinated paraffin lubricant which tends to foam and which largely sinks to the bottom of the tanks.

Solution

The solution was a super-powerful C-48 metal stampings conveyor washer with a 50″ wide x 19″ high work envelope. This stainless steel system has two modules (pre-wash and final wash), two 2,000 gallon tanks, and a total of six pumps. Each pump has an output of 300 GPM at 60 PSI for a total flow of 1800 GPM!

Additional system features include chain belting, gas heat, a steam exhaust system, two separate oil/water coalescers, non-electric chemical injectors, and a central control station.
