Efficiency gains from automating a pressure cleaning operation can have an early pay back!
Technical details can often overshadow the long term benefits – you just have to start with the basics.
First stop is to establish the real financial cost of your existing manually operated system – if you have one.
Or – consider the new opportunities available;
- Higher more consistent levels of cleanliness
- Lower water and energy use
- Safer and simpler operations for personnel
Modern technology offers a wider range of accessories and nozzles for process washing or treatment.
Product washing – or washing product handling equipment with an automatic system is an obvious saving.
Spray Pump Services have extensive experience in nozzle and pumping systems for in-line systems.
Repetitive, dangerous and dirty applications may require a robot for control.
If you already have an experienced robotic system integrator, adapting a suitable system is achievable.
- Humidifying (environment moisture control or disinfecting)
- Atomizing (fogging or misting for wetting or coating surfaces)
- Cooling (after heat inducing operations)
- Washing (single pass application, cold or hot water with or without detergent agents)
- High impingement (for rapid cleaning or cutting soft tissue)
- Multiple impact (for pressure scrubbing surfaces)
- Deburring (removing casting flashes and sharp edges for metal and ceramic surfaces)
- Descaling (Post heat treatment of metals)
As with all treatment processes, reducing human involvement reduces risk.
This can be achieved successfully by doing the following things;
- Keep the operation as simple as it needs to be – minimum movement where possible.
- Incorporate easy control for operators.
- Fully shroud the treatment with a well thought out enclosure.
- Engineer good access for preventative maintenance activities.
- Incorporate adequate drainage and a self-clean cycle if possible.
- Employ safety devices everywhere possible.
