High Energy Parts Washers for Rebuilding
Parts Washers Can Be Big, Tall and Powerful
When it come to large or over-sized parts, cleaning sometimes requires a larger than normal washer to accommodate the pieces. The key to selecting a large capacity washer is to first determine the frequency that extra large pieces will have to be cleaned. If a high percentage of the parts to be cleaned are normally-sized, you may want buy a parts cleaner built for these parts and use an alternate method for the occasional over-sized part. (See Figure 1)
High Energy Cleaning
Re-builders often want to strip paint and carbon as close to bear metal as possible. This requires maintaining heat and sustained pressure. Recently a municipal transit company who needed to quickly clean large parts with heavy build-up of contaminates. For this application I teamed up with KEMAC, a line which I was instrumental in founding early in my career in this industry. We fitted a 75-horse power pump delivering 190 psi at 200 GPM into a washer with a 72-inch, six thousand pound capacity turntable (Figure 2). This proved to be the right choice.
To clean an extra long aircraft body part, we built a washer with a 102-inch working height. But shipping it economically was going to be a problem as a double-drop trailer going to the state of Maine was prohibitive. We created it to go in a horizontal position and the shipping cost was reasonable (Figure 3).
Super Duty Required
KEMAC provided this double-door model for an off-road equipment dealer who wanted to clean complete rear members and larger engine blocks (Figure 4). Quality Systems will build a parts washer to fit your specific needs and size, with few limitations to the size and capacity. Due to my experience in the industry I have relationships that can fill the gaps if it is not in our line. Please visit our website for answers to your cleaning questions or for more information.
