Your teams mull their options and decide your facility can benefit from an in-house industrial parts washer. Now, you have some more questions to answer before talking to a firm that specializes in supplying such equipment. JAYCO Cleaning Technologies discusses what questions you should ask when selecting an industrial parts washer.
Your parts might have metal or plastic burrs on them after the machining process. Equipment with moving parts may have dirt, grease, or lubricants on them after continuous use. Medical companies, doctor’s offices, and medical labs could have equipment and tools with biohazards on them. All of these contaminants are removed thanks to an industrial parts washer that returns parts or machines to pristine condition. The types of material being removed help to determine the kind of industrial cleaning machine you need.
The material your parts are made of also factors into the kind of industrial parts washer your firm requires. Metal parts and equipment can withstand more rigorous cleaning than glass equipment. Plastic and rubber parts may have special considerations with regards to optimal cleaning solvents or processes. Materials of workpieces could lead to thermal deburring systems for metal or ultrasonic cleaners for sensitive glass containers.
The volume of parts you need to clean daily might determine the size of your industrial parts washer. You could have two dozen parts to clean per day, but each piece fits in the palm of your hand. Your facility may have 50 parts to clean per hour, and each part is the size of a basketball. Part size and the number of pieces goes into determining what kind of industrial parts washer fits your company model.
A thermal deburring machine could have a bigger physical profile compared to a cabinet washer, but that’s not always the case. A rotary cabinet washer with a 100-gallon tank rated to clean 20-parts-per-hour could be larger than a thermal deburring machine with one chamber in it. However, a rotary washer with an 18-inch basket fits on the end of a table you already have in place. What types of items you need to clean and the washing process largely determine the size of the industrial parts washer you require.
