How Much Do Industrial Parts Washers Cost?

Industrial parts washers are used in many manufacturing, automotive, and production facilities. They save time and money by efficiently removing grime, dirt, and other contaminants from a wide range of parts and components.

If you’re in the market for one, you might wonder what to expect to pay. The short answer is that it varies based on your needs. Read on to learn more as we break down the different cost elements and provide you with an estimated price range so you can make a more informed buying decision.

Factors Influencing the Price of an Industrial Parts Washer

Many things can influence the cost such as part size, volume, cleanliness, and required drying levels. 

Volume and Size of Parts—The volume and size of the parts you need to wash in a single load will determine the size of the washer you need. These two requirements will also impact the price. 

For example, you may be able to use a smaller washer if you wash a large number of small parts. In contrast, if you need to clean a smaller number of large parts, you may need a larger and more expensive washer.  

Cleanliness Levels—The required cleanliness level will also affect the overall cost. Depending on how much dirt and grease you need to remove, the machine will require additional parts and engineering to meet your requirements.

Dryness Levels—If you need a 100% dryness level, the parts washer will require a built-in drying mechanism.

Arnold Machine Parts Washers vs. the Competition

We’re going to come out and say it—our machines are more expensive than the competition. However, we design our parts washers to take the abuse that an industrial piece of equipment will potentially see over 30+ years of daily usage. 

The competition often offers cheaply made parts washers that you will need to replace every 5-6 years. A Department of Transportation District Facility switched to Arnold Machine parts washers after their previous one began to rust and degrade.
