Rotary Drum Washer System

Rotary Drum Washer

The drum parts washer is perfect for high volume, continuous cleaning and drying of small parts. Parts are automatically fed through cleaning, rinsing and drying via a perforated rotating drum chamber.

Rotary Drum Washer Overview

Continuous rotary drum washers are designed to combine the gentle tumbling action with both immersion and spray to thoroughly clean, drain and dry unique parts.  Continuous drum washers are best suited to process small to medium size parts that can be processed in bulk.  Drum washers are ideal for the continuous processing of medium to high volume production rates.  Drum washer can be continuously feed, our bulk loaded with ancillary metering systems to regulate part flow.  Typical cleaning applications include fasteners, ammunition, bearings, stamped parts, fittings and metal chips.

The Rotary Drum Washer construction is stainless steel. The heavy-duty drum is fabricated of solid and perforated steel in various diameters. The drum assembly includes running bands, heavy-duty bearing and support components, internal helix and a variable speed drum drive.
