Rotary Drum Systems

Systems are available in single or multi-stage configurations to suit virtually any type of cleaning application including washing, rinsing, phosphating, rust inhibiting, and drying.

Drum Systems can accommodate a wide variety of part sizes and geometries using a perforated drum designed to process the necessary solution to clean, rinse and dry the parts. Parts can be manual or automatic load and unload systems are available.

Rugged stainless steel tanks and enclosures provide superior durability, chemical resistance and quality appearance. Systems can be equipped with all popular heating systems including electric, gas or steam.

Standard features include:

The tank and upper housing are constructed of 10 gauge, 304 stainless steel. 2" mineral wool insulation is covered by 16 gauge, polished, 304 stainless steel skin.

The drum is constructed of perforated carbon steel with perforations designed to allow maximum cleaning for your particular parts. Flights and kickers are installed to tumble the parts and enhance the cleaning, rinsing, and drying process.

Vertical centrifugal pumps with carbon steel wetted parts are sized for the most effective coverage within the spray stages.

Internal spray headers down the center of the drum, are designed to provide complete spray coverage throughout the cleaning process.

A mild steel bag filter follows each pump. Each filter has two (2) pressure gauges to indicate the need for a filter bag change.

Dual stainless steel mesh screens protect the pump suction.

Tanks are heated by stainless steel element immersion heaters designed to maintain the specified temperature. Automatic liquid level controls fill the tanks and protect the pumps and heaters. Each tank top is equipped with a maintenance access removable lid.

The dry off stage has a stainless steel tubular heater following a regenerative blower. A filter, relief valves, and gauges are assembled with the blower.

Stainless steel air knives are positioned down the center of the dry off stage to direct air to the parts being processed.
