Large Dual Zone Washer – Big Jack
RAMCO can build systems to accommodate custom applications. This Aja-Kleen was designed for cleaning large aerospace components. The customer wanted to quickly and effectively clean machining oils and debris from large parts. The process required washing using directional turbulence in a solvent to clean the parts followed by a recessed dwell within the chamber to allow the parts to drip off prior to leaving the system. The washer had to handle parts up to 66″L x 42″W x 30″H and loads up to 1000 pounds.
The tank was construction was heavy gauge carbon steel. The tank rear wall was made of heavy gauge plate with exterior welded structural angles and channel. Roller bearings were mounted externally at critical locations to evenly distribute the load and eliminate cylinder maintenance.
The system used our standard oscillating elevator to transport the parts into and out of the chamber and to position and move the parts within the washing zone. Using the normal up/down stroke of the elevator combined with a comprehensive turbulation system provided a very effective flushing action.
Its is this function of the RAMCO systems that allows them to achieve superior results – better coverage and accelerated processing times. A powered cover with fusible link, Nema 12 panel with lockout-tagout disconnect, high temperature safety, automatic digital cycle timer and E-stop is provided..
