Pallet Washer

Pallets and containers become contaminated with everything from light or heavy oils, machine coolants, chips or other contaminants that are introduced during the manufacturing process. A typical problem that our customers see with reusable pallets and containers is that clean parts are placed back into soiled totes. This process will contaminate the clean part.

International Thermal Systems offers a Industrial Parts Washer designed specifically for pallets. This aqueous parts washer is a conveyor washer that will thoroughly clean soiled pallets.

The Pallet Washer is offered in two standard sizes; 12″ wide x 48″ high product opening and and 18″ wide x 48″ high product opening. In addition to our standard pallet washer product line, ITS can also offer custom designed pallet and dunnage washers to customer specifications and requirements. Whatever the contamination, size and type of container required and production rate needed, we can make a recommendation that will best suit the application.

International Thermal Systems has designed a standard automated pallet washer design specifically built for cleaning reusable pallets.

International Thermal Systems builds a wide variety of dunnage washers designed for cleaning returnable pallets, vacuum formed trays, dunnage, totes and other containers used for manufacturing processes. The Pallet Washer’s economical cleaning system delivers aggressive cleaning, heavy duty industrial construction, electric solution heat and easy maintenance at an affordable price.


This Automated Pallet Washer features a one-piece stainless steel tank with rigid base and height adjustable feet. The tank bottom is sloped to large drains for easy tank cleaning. Each solution tank is fitted with a marine style clean-out door to provide convenient access to the lower tank for cleaning. The Pallet Washer uses high pressure spray cleaning with Vee-Jet nozzles to scour the surface of the pallets, stripping away-imbedded soils. Spray nozzles are positioned to clean all surfaces of the pallet. Quick disconnect couplers, caps and nozzles make maintenance as easy as possible. A high pressure ambient air blow-off comes standard to remove moisture from the pallets or totes. In addition, the blow-off system features a large air intake filter with dual disposable filters to prevent part contamination and to protect the pressure blower itself. The fan is floor mounted for easy maintenance access. The air knives are fully adjustable for both position and pressure.

Double filter screens allow one screen to be cleaned while the other remains in place, protecting the pump and nozzles. Large canopy doors with mechanical seals (no gasket) provide ample access to the spray-housing interior. Work tunnel openings feature rubber zone curtains that retain heat and wash/rinse solution when a pallet is passing through for optimal efficiency. All Pallet Washer Systems are designed with a standard powered conveyor system. A pre-wired electrical control system is included with every Pallet Washer System for turnkey installation. A NEMA 4X enclosure is used to house NEMA or IEC electrical components including the main disconnect switch. The door mounted push buttons, indicating lights and temperature controls are also included with the base washer package.
