ITS launches online, virtual TruClean Industrial Parts Washer Calculator

TruClean Industrial Parts Washer Online Calculator Tool

Need a new industrial parts washer but not sure which one? Try the NEW TruClean washer calculator. ITS has designed a new online calculator tool that determines the best conveyor washer or batch washer for your application. The online industrial washer calculator makes customized, virtual product recommendations to help you maximize production efficiency and minimize energy consumption.

The TruClean calculator was designed to provide companies in the automotive, aerospace, power generation, building products, foundry, and metal stamping with a streamlined, customized experience to select the best industrial parts washer for their application. The TruClean Washer online calculator determines the best TruClean model for the cleaning process based on a user’s unique criteria provided. By answering a few questions about the wash process including part size, part weight, and production rate per hour, the calculator will output the TruClean model best suited for the user’s application.

“The TruClean online calculator tool is a new, market-disrupting addition to the service offerings International Thermal Systems provides to help companies be more efficient in their production process,” said Tom Stricker, President of International Thermal Systems. “The virtual tool was designed to provide prospects and customers with an innovative, efficient, and customized method for determining the right washer for their production process, as well as offer information to help make the best purchasing decision.”

The online selection tool determines if the user’s production application requires a front loading or top loading batch washer or calculates the appropriate conveyor washer belt width for continuous flow applications. TruClean industrial parts washers are offered in 12 standard sizes for basic applications. For more complex cleaning requirements, ITS offers specialized consultation in the selection of custom-engineered washer solutions.

How does the calculator work? Based on your process, continuous flow or batch, the part size, production rate per hour and if the application requires general cleaning or specific cleaning, the calculator will recommend the most suitable Truclean washer for the application. ITS offers four standard conveyor washers with belt sizes ranging from 12” up to 30” and eight standard cabinet washers in either top loading or front loading configurations. If the application does not fall within those production ranges, the calculator will suggest a custom engineered parts washer.

The industrial parts washers from ITS are high quality and engineered to last for many years. Our highly skilled manufacturing teams have many years experience which provides assurance to our customers that their washer will perform as specified from day one after installation. We provide the best customer support services in the industry and are available 24 hours for service calls. Replacement parts are available as well to keep the washer running at maximum performance levels.

New Year New Washer – Step 5 to Building an Industrial Parts Washer

Step 5: Build: Industrial Parts Washer Production

Once the mechanical drawings are approved, the build phase begins. Since it’s likely that you’ll be logging tens of thousands of hours and washing millions of parts during its life, you’ll want to have the comfort of knowing that your custom washer has been meticulously engineered for durability and built to your exact specifications for the long haul.

During the quoting process, a manufacturing schedule will be determined and a delivery date will be set. A typical industrial washer build will be complete in 10-16 weeks depending on the complexity of the washer.

During your initial facility tour, make sure to stop and notice the equipment that is being built on the floor. Pay attention to the detail of their workmanship.

As your industrial washer is being built, stop in during the manufacturing process to see the work in process. If your location is too far from the manufacturing facility, request photos be sent every few weeks.

The manufacturer will perform quality checks throughout the build of the washer and after the build is complete, the manufacturer’s quality control team will test the washer to verify that all components are working and to make any needed adjustments. Your team will be invited to the manufacturer’s facility for a functional test of the washer. A typical QC test will include testing the amp draws, pump pressures, air flows and conveyor speeds. If applicable, the PLC and HMI will be demonstrated, tanks will be filled with water, pumps will be run, and leak checks will be conducted on the welding and piping. After verifying the machine is working as specified, the washer will be cleaned, prepped and packed for shipment.

New Year New Washer – Step 4 to Building an Industrial Parts Washer

Step 4: Review and Approve: Operational Review and Washer General Assembly Drawing

You are now on your way to a new industrial parts washer! You have chosen a manufacturer and are ready to get the project moving.  After a contract is signed, the project moves to detailed engineering. At this time, the manufacturer may assign a project engineer to oversee the project. The project engineer may present an operational review to your entire team.

After the PO has been issued, the engineer will prepare a general assembly drawing of the industrial washer for your final review and approval. What is the key to success during this phase? Communication.

During the design/build phase of your machine, continued open communication with the sales team and the project engineer is recommended. Changes to your machine can be made during the design phase by communicating with the sales team and the project engineer. During the design phase the project engineer may contact you with any questions or issues that may have been overlooked during the initial purchasing process.

ITS Engineers are Heat Treat and Washing experts

Designed by the best engineers in the industry

The operational review would be a precursor to the project engineer’s preparation of a General Assembly Drawing for your review and approval. This basic drawing will have the outside dimensions of the washer, the major components labeled, and should give you an idea of any work within your facility you need to have done within your facility for the washer to be installed. Once approved, final drawings will be created and the build of your machine can begin.

From a best practices perspective, here’s a list of items that you should expect during the operational review and general assembly drawing process:

  • A realistic 3-D rendering of the washer
  • Fixes for any speed bumps the engineer identifies regarding space limitations, power availability, or impact of requested upgrades on cost or deliverability timing
  • A detailed discussion of installation issues and recommend fixes

Drawings are complete and have been approved. Now it is time to move to manufacturing.

New Year New Washer – Step 3 to Building an Industrial Parts Washer

Step 3: Verify Parts Cleaning Process in Manufacturer’s Lab

For custom washer applications or stringent cleaning requirements, many manufacturers offer parts testing as a service to their customers. Customers are invited to send their dirty parts to the manufacturer’s test lab to verify the wash process. The parts will be tested, cleaned and returned with a detailed lab report. The recommended wash process will be verified, and your industrial parts washer will be designed and built to clean as specified from day one after installation. It is a valuable option towards purchasing the best machine for your application. Most manufacturers offer parts testing as a complimentary service.

ITS R&D laboratory

Test and validate your process before manufacturing in our parts cleaning lab.

 

The lab will test and clean the parts to determine the optimal design of the machine including:

  • Length of Wash Time (related to washer length or footprint)
  • Nozzle type and flow rate (affects pump size, pressure, HP, etc.)
  • Solution condition (temperature, chemical concentration, etc.)
  • Rinse and blow-off options
  • Scientific tests conducted ultimately become washer design recommendations and part of both the quote and the detailed engineering required for the washer build step.

Relying on accurate, customized scientific results, instead of using historical evidence from previous washer design and build projects, will help your entire team have the confidence that the customized washer will meet requirements ranging from footprint restrictions to the degree of part cleanliness required. For some applications, parts-testing is not a necessary step, and the process moves onto the detailed design of the parts cleaning equipment.

After defining the application requirements, testing the part if needed, hosting an onsite visit, visiting the manufacturing facility, and completing the initial design phase, the industrial washer manufacturer will deliver a detailed quote.

The quote should include:

  • A customized washer designed for your application
  • Operational specifications for your cleaning process
  • Delivery and installation plans
  • Price

Does ITS offer parts testing?

ITS houses a complete R&D department at our Milwaukee location. A lab washer and other testing equipment are used to determine or confirm the optimum design parameters for our customers new equipment.  Testing provides the customers, scientific evidence of the best equipment option for their application BEFORE the actual equipment is built. The ITS lab includes:

Aqueous Washing R&D Equipment and Capabilities

  • Belt Washer to test and prove applications before machine is built
  • Wash pump delivers up to 158 GPM and pressure up to 40 PSI
  • High pressure blower providing blow-off air velocity up to 16,000 FPM
