Pails, Buckets and Jars

Washing Systems for Pails, Buckets and Jars

The automatic enclosed washers are designed to clean small containers such as pailsbucketsjarslids, and any other specialty parts contaminated with a wide variety of solvent, water, and petroleum based materials.  These washers, known as the PW-Series, feature corrosion resistant, high pressure pumps and spray nozzles which can remove even the most difficult residues from the containers. The high impingement jet spray technology can even remove cured resins and paints. A vapor tight lid is typically used to ensure vapor containment. Interlocked lid, secure sensors, and ground proving switches are standard features to ensure maximum operator safety.

An easy to use, set up menu provides the operator with the ability to program desired wash and rinse cycles into the PLC microprocessor logic controller allowing the system to operate automatically.  The controller monitors a series of relays and contacts to verify proper liquid levels, flows, pressures, container security and proper grounding, before starting the cycle.  Any fault condition is diagnosed and clearly displayed on the control panel to ensure operator safety and ease of operation.  The system automatically shuts off in the event of any fault condition or at the end of the cycle.

The cleaning liquid used in the primary wash cycle can also be recirculated to an external containment reservoir, tank, or built in sump tank to minimize the volume required.  The rinse can then be disposed off site, recycled, or returned to a dirty wash tank as make-up (commonly used in Closed-Loop System configurations).
