Dual Drum Parts Washers cost less to produce and operate than two separate single drum parts washers. Maintenance costs are reduced by sharing common tanks, heating system, pumps and dryer. The drums have separate drives which can operate at different speeds and the drums may be designed differently for various parts.
Every component in this Dual Action Drum Washer from the design of the spray headers, to the integral drying system, was engineered to reduce energy. This drum parts washer is able to run two different parts at once with separated drives for variable speed and process time, reducing maintenance costs over two machines.
Parts are cleaned faster at lower temperatures and in less floor space because of the engineered spray system which incorporates two separate rows of high impact V-Jet nozzles. The spray jets create a powerful cleaning action in the immersion zone which flushes out the inside of deep drawn and blind holed parts.
The two rows of spray nozzles clean much better than machined slots or holes drilled in pipe. As the parts move out of the spray and immersion cleaning zone the dirty solution with chips drains back into the tank. The parts are continually flushed again with fresh clean solution before they enter the rinse station. This method cleans more parts per hour than other systems and usually allows the purchase of a smaller more economical machine.
The Jenfab Recirculating Parts Dryer uses up to 75% less energy and completely dries all parts including deep blind holed parts.
Each drum is custom designed for the parts allowing even delicate screw machine parts with exterior threads to be processed without damage. All components are precision laser cut for precise fit.
Tanks are added as required for part washing, rinsing, rust proofing, phosphate processes, sealing, passivating, lubricating, and coating.
How It Works
Parts are fed on a continuous inline basis by moving the parts through various operations in a horizontal cylinder that is equipped with an internal helix. This causes parts to advance as the drum rotates. The parts are gently tumbled in the washing, rinsing and inhibiting solutions. This part movement exposes all surfaces, edges, and geometries to the immersion soak and spray cleaning action. It also effectively drains and exposes all parts surfaces to the dryer air flow.
