Manual vs Automatic Washing Processes

Manual washing, while traditional, is labour intensive, time consuming and often inconsistent. When you weigh up the time required for manual cleaning against the efficiency of an automatic parts washer, there’s simply no contest. An automatic washer doesn’t just allow you to clean a higher volume of parts each day; it also allows your team to focus on other important areas of your business.

Superior Cleaning Results

Automated parts washers deliver superior cleaning results consistently. Thanks to advanced technology, they can target dirt, grease, and contaminants at a microscopic level, something manual cleaning can rarely achieve. This means a deeper clean, ensuring that parts function optimally for longer. In industries where precision cleaning is paramount (such as aerospace and automotive), this can significantly improve the performance and reliability of components.

Reduced Water Consumption

In today’s environmentally conscious landscape, businesses are prioritising the reduction of energy and water usage. Automated parts washers stand out in this effort, offering significant savings on water without compromising on cleaning power. These systems cleverly recirculate and filter water, making it easier for your business to meet its sustainability targets.

Reduced Costs

Switching to an automated parts washer might seem like a big investment at first, but it’s a smart move that pays off in the long run. The beauty of it lies in the substantial cost savings you’ll enjoy down the line. Think less labour costs, reduced water usage, and minimal waste – all of which add up to a healthier bottom line. Plus, when your parts are kept squeaky clean, they last longer, meaning you’ll spend less on replacements over time. 

Clean Any Size Part

Automated parts washers can clean any size part, from small engine components to large aerospace parts. These systems are able to clean even the most complex parts quickly and accurately, ensuring a thorough clean every time.

Cabinet Parts Washers

Ideal for smaller parts, cabinet washers are compact and efficient, using high pressure jets to blast away dirt and grease.

Ultrasonic Parts Washers

Using high frequency sound waves, ultrasonic washers can clean intricate parts to a microscopic level, perfect for delicate or complex components.

Conveyorised Parts Washers

Designed for high volume cleaning, conveyorised washers move parts through different cleaning stages, offering a continuous cleaning solution.

Immersion Parts Washers

These washers submerge parts in a cleaning solution, using agitation, rotation, or ultrasonic waves to dislodge contaminants.

Aqueous Parts Washers

Using water based solutions, aqueous washers are an environmentally friendly option that can efficiently remove a wide range of substances.

Rotary Basket Parts Washer

Rotary basket washers use a spinning basket filled with cleaning agents to remove heavy contamination from components. Great for uniformly cleaning small to medium parts, spinning them through cleaning and rinse cycles.
