Conveyor Washer for Cosmetic Drums Pails

Background:

This company is an American multinational cosmetics, skincare, fragrance, and personal care company. They produce large quantities of various cosmetics (for eyes, face, lips, nails, and more) each in a wide color pallet. The make-up constituents are stored in plastic pails and drums and these containers need to be cleaned after each use. This company cleaned the containers manually using a hand-held pressure washer. The result was a mess in more ways than one. They wanted an automatic cosmetic pail-drum washer to help increase efficiency.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

Design one conveyor washer that could clean both 5-gallon pails as well as 55-gallon drums. The system had to wash and rinse the containers, fit in a really tight room and have a return conveyor so that one operator can load and unload the parts.

Solution/System:

The solution was a two-stage (wash and rinse), stainless steel cosmetic pail-drum washer with a 24-inch wide U-shaped return conveyor belt and hinged side rails that fold down to secure the smaller pails. The system also has a CIP system for the wash and rinse tanks and a 40-inch working height.

The conveyor belt is flat-wire and has a “smart drive” with torque overload control. The belt has “pushers” to keep containers moving forward on the belt and has a variable speed of 1-10 FPM.

The spray and rinse modules both feature a 500-gallon tank, a 7.5 HP pump, water level controls, easy cleanout access, and drain and overflow ports.

Background:

This company is a global cosmetics and personal care products manufacturer.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

The filling machines at cosmetic companies have to be torn down and meticulously cleaned on a regular basis. This company needed a system to automate the cleaning and sanitizing of components.

Solution/System:

The solution was a CE-3000-SAN stainless steel sanitary spray washer with a 37″ diameter turntable and 48″ working height. This machine cycles through a wash stage and at least two (2) rinse stages. The wash solution can be saved and dumped after “X” cycles. Cabinet is hygienic-by-design and the roll-in door exposes a portion of turntable for ergonomic loading of larger volume containers by the operator as well as minimizes overall footprint.

Background:

This company is a global manufacturer of integrated containment systems for the pharmaceutical and biotechnical industries.

Parts Cleaning Challenge:

They needed a sanitary system that would be able to clean mass volumes of small rubber parts after punch-out.

Solution/System:

A sanitary drum washer designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. Parts are automatically loaded and the drum tumbles the parts through the system. The parts are washed, dried, and then move onto the next stage. The D-24 has a 24″ diameter drum and a super “clean design” to maintain sanitary conditions. All areas of the machine are accessible and there is a self-cleaning cycle. Better Engineering also designed a hydraulic cart to periodically remove the drum for detailed inspection and maintenance.
