A wide variety of components are exposed to massive load and dirt in professional industrial use. This leads to increased wear, often to a higher weight of the parts and an exchange of the material is necessary frequently. Regular cleaning of the elements noticeably extends the service life, handling is improved by the lower weight and physical stress is reduced.
The elements are usually cleaned manually with a high-pressure gun. A manual process that is time-consuming and certainly has the potential for injury. Hammelmann‘s unique cleaning system is a semi-automatic system that makes cleaning easier, faster and easier to plan. Occupational safety is significantly improved and the costs for wages and energy use are also reduced.
The overall system is based on a modular concept and can be adapted to individual requirements with little effort. In advance, the necessary parameters for optimal cleaning are determined in close cooperation with the customer.
The cleaning line consists of taxiways, the cleaning chamber with spray bars and nozzles, baskets for storing the parts, the chain conveyor, the pump unit for supplying high- pressure water and all the necessary control elements and sensors.
The elements to be cleaned are conveyed through the cleaning chamber in the baskets. The feed can be adjusted in a range from 0 – 0.4 inch / sec [0 – 90 mm]. The elements are cleaned at high pressure in the cleaning chamber.
The number of spray bars used is configured individually and determines the overall working width of the system. The seamless height adjustment allows optimal adaptation to the parts to be cleaned.
