WATER CROSSOVER WASH STATION

This semi-automatic machine was designed and built to wash the machining chips and coolant from this water crossover after the casting is machined.

           

Three crossovers are loaded into the open side of the split cabinet and the dual finger switches are activated. The door automatically moves to enclose the newly placed crossovers, and the cycle is begun.

A series of pressure wash and air blasts remove the loose chips and coolant from the parts. Nozzles direct the water and air through the center of the parts, as well as over the outer surfaces. After several cycles, dry air is then directed over the part to remove the excess moisture, similar to the way a car wash works on your car!

The washer contains a recirculation system that filters the chips out of the water and then a conveyor system separates the chips and automatically removes them from the water tank, into a hopper to be recycled later! An estimated 1.4 million water crossovers per year are cleaned in this single machine.

The cabinet, tank and plumbing is stainless steel, to prohibit corrosion of the machine.

The cycle is controlled with an Allen Bradley PLC with a data interface to allow for easy adjustment to the cycle.
