Industrial Immersion Parts Washers: Advanced and Adaptable

Across dozens of industries, the demand for adaptable industrial immersion parts washers continues to grow. As the technology of manufacturing parts advances – resulting in parts with more exacting parameters for cleaning, so too, immersion systems to wash those parts must keep pace with the market, be able to adapt or risk becoming obsolete. It’s for this reason that RAMCO’s industrial immersion parts washers go beyond being big tanks for parts to soak in. A RAMCO unit can function as a standalone washer with a basic washing cycle, or multiple units working side-by-side may prove to be your best option. Add to that another level of adaptability with auxiliary add-ons for enhanced control over various stages of the washing cycle.

Modular system configurations are available to partially or fully automate the immersion cleaning process Automation, when appropriate, reduces labor as well as the overall cleaning time. Adaptations for high volume washing or heavy cleaning loads exceeding 3500 pounds are part and parcel of what we can produce for our clients. Systems can be programmable according to your specifications. Hands-off air powered systems can often reduce manual operator tasks to the simple touch of a button.

RAMCO specializes in building systems that incorporate multiple cleaning methods for removing contaminants such as spraying under immersion, mechanical agitation, hydraulic flushing, ultrasonic cleaning, rotation and even continuous flow variation to maximize cleaning power.

Innovative adaptations keep RAMCO industrial immersion parts washers current – able to meet the exacting needs of industries like aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, agriculture, pharmaceutical, machining, heavy equipment manufacture, construction, defense/military, mass transit, and more. So many of these industries utilize high-tech machines, produce sensitive components, etc. By fabricating systems that operate and apply precisely calculated pressure, even softer metals can be carefully washed without risk of damage.

Despite the technological advancements already mentioned, the objectives of all industrial immersion parts washes remain the same:

To eliminate oil, chips, buffing compounds, carbon deposits, rust, paint, dirt, debris, other particulates or contaminants. The immersion and washing phases are an appropriate precursor to:

  • Welding
  • Deburring
  • Brazing
  • Blasting
  • Nitric Acid Passivation
  • Citric Acid Passivation
  • FPI Dye Penetrant Inspection
  • Tube Washing
  • Cleaning in Advance of Parts/Product Assembly
  • Engine Rebuild

 

It Starts with the Right System

Actually, the first step is to listen. After all, you know what you need. However, you may be unaware of  many of the variables that must be taken into account to meet those needs.  To that end, a “cookie cutter” solution is never the answer. Prior to the installation of all our systems, RAMCO’s team of technicians and engineers do a full workup and assessment of your requirements, taking into account everything from the particulars of your facility, all of the parts that will be washed, along with any factors that must be taken into account such as the type of metal, its tolerances and the desired cleaning result. By the time we are finished we’ll make recommendations that cover necessary training and/or certifications that might be necessary for both your facility and your operators. Only after a meticulous analysis will we recommend the optimum system for your parts washing station.

RAMCO’s highly adaptable Migi-Kleen parts washer – a system that can exist as a solo machine or made modular with the addition of one or more units. A host of options and add-on features serve to keep the Migi-Kleen series current.

RAMCO’s  Air Powered Immersion Parts Washers can be fabricated in various forms. Being wholly air-powered yields optimum results for when the employing moderate-to-low flash point solvents.

Flexibilty and modular adaptation is exemplified as well in the RAMCO AMKT24 Immersion Washing Systems. The unit can be set up for a very basic configuration, or, take advantage of both its modular potential and various supplementary add-ons which significantly expand its capabilities, depending upon the tasks.

The AJA-Kleen Series is RAMCO’s carbon steel powerhouse immersion system engineered to accommodate extremely heavy loads exceeding 2000 pounds. Augmenting its rugged heavy gauge steel construction is it exterior-mounted roller bearing system that keeps the entire stable and distributes the washers load evenly.

An immersion parts washer with RAMCO’s Air Blow-Off Dryer is ideal for parts like heavy steel castings that retain heat even after the washing process. All that’s needed is a sufficient “blow-off” of compressed air to effectively finish the drying phase.

RAMCO’s compact immersion parts washers come in two configurations: the MK24 and the MK16. When space is at a premium, one of these two units will usually fit in close quarters. Both feature RAMCO’s oscillating transport elevator that not only eliminates having to manually load parts baskets, the agitation guarantees that the cleaning agent is move over, in, out, around and through the parts for superior cleaning.

The RAMCO Equipment MKD24 Wash/Dry console sets a high standard for adaptable and modular system configurations. It’s outfitted to accommodate a 20” x 20” basket with a load weighing up to 150 pounds. Also part and parcel of the system is MultiPort Oscillation ensures complete agitation of even intricate parts in and out of the cleaning agent.

Our equipment immersion systems for use with low PH chemicals are engineered specifically for applications including the washing or etching of substrates, passivation, and bright dipping – any time an acidic chemical cleaning agent such as nitric acid or citric acid (two of the most common),as well as phosphoric or oxallic acid.
