As pallets are shuttled between workstations and for various machining operations, the parts and pallets can become contaminated with chips, coolant, and manufacturing soils, which can be detrimental to subsequent operations. Alliance conveyorized chain cleaning systems can be integrated into the conveyor system for cleaning both empty pallets and pallets containing parts. Conveyor design, pallet hand-off, cycle times, and work cell layouts are all considered when designing a conveyorized chain parts washer. The spray zones are designed for 360-degree spray coverage for complete cleaning and flushing. Pallet stops can be incorporated in the machine for cleaning or drying of specific part features.
Palletized industrial parts cleaning systems can be complicated in that smooth pallet transfer and proper line speed is critical to a successful pallet cleaning system. Our chain conveyors are designed for handshake synchronization with table-top conveyor systems. This handshake interface automatically transfers the soiled pallet/part on to the Alliance conveyor system for cleaning. This system effectively contains the wash water, minimizing drag-out and directs the fluid for proper filtering and recirculation.
Conveyor chain industrial parts washers are ideal for cleaning parts such as a piston, oil pump housing, oil pan, engine block, drive shaft, transmission case, brake rotor, camshaft, ammunition casings, and other manufactured parts.
