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.
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.
