Arnold conveyor systems represent a broad range of industrial parts cleaning machines where parts enter into a continuous or indexed cleaning process. Conveyor washers are best suited for in-line, high-volume production cleaning applications. These machines provide an almost unlimited combination of material transport methods, cleaning methods, and number of potential stages.
We have decades of experience across virtually every industrial category. Let us help you create a machine that meets your cleaning challenge.
There is no single solution for moving every different type of part in manufacturing, and the demands of parts cleaning are similar. Clean specification, volume, part size and shape, and other requirements dictate the right approach to moving material through the process. Let our experts help you determine the most appropriate material handling solutions.
Belt systems are the most common type of pass-through washer. Part transport belts typically range from 8’ to 72” in width with custom sizes available.
Parallel Chain Washer
Parallel chains are a versatile platform for the movement of fixtured or palletized parts through the cleaning process.
Powered and Unpowered Roller Conveyors
Roller conveyors provide a common method for moving fixtured or palletized parts into and out of any machine for cleaning.
Immersion conveyors allow parts to be conveyed into a combination of spray and immersion stages. The parts are conveyed by a flighted conveyor (parallel chain or plastic belting). The immersion stages allow the part to be submerged into a highly turbulated or ultrasonic bath. Immersion conveyors are great for final wash/precision cleaning and heavy duty soil removal. Typical stage configuration is immersion wash, spray rinse, blow-off.
Incline belt washers allow parts to be immersed in wash solution prior to being spray washed and blown off. The incline belt washer offers a small footprint with fork pockets and optional casters for flexible use. Multiple units can be arranged in-line to allow for multiple stages (wash, rinse, etc.). Incline belt washers are great for small machined parts and hardware.
Monorail systems are used in applications where parts can hang and are best suited for high-volume production / in-line cleaning applications. Arnold Machine can supply the monorail system or build a cleaning washer around your existing monorail system.
