Automatic Parts Washers, Aqueous Parts Washers, Water Based Parts Washers and Solvent Free Parts Washers are all names for the same type of product. Automatic Parts Washers, or APW’s for short, are a fast and easy way to clean off greasy and grimy parts. Put the parts in, close the door, come back later and remove the cleaned parts. The units circulate and spray hot water at high volume and low pressure to flood and clean the parts. They could be compared to a giant powerful dishwasher.
Automatic Parts Washers have a couple of large advantages over traditional solvent scrub tubs. First, they save labor, because parts go in dirty and come out clean allowing employees to focus on other tasks. Second, they eliminate much of the environmental and health concern of solvents. Our parts washers are water based and reuse a soap water mix to achieve great results without the hazards and odors of solvents. The soap blend contains great cleaning agents and is formulated with anti-foam, rinsing and rust inhibiting properties.
Automatic parts washers have many industrial uses, but one of the most common places to find an automatic water based parts washer is in a vehicle repair shop. Transmissions, drain pans, wheels and almost every other car or truck part is easier to inspect and work on when it is clean.
Their application to process improvement and result improvement doesn’t stop there. Medical device manufacturing, aerospace, plastic manufacturing, recondition shops of many types, cities, states and counties and countless other types of customers have benefited from this technology.
In addition to the labor savings and the health and environmental benefits that come from using no solvents, automatic parts washers provide other environmental and bottom line benefits as well. The water in the sump of the washer can be used for many months and does not go down the drain after each use.
The automatic water fill is an option for most parts washers and will refill the tank as water is evaporated. Oil skimmers are a standard feature on most models and will skim the free oil from the solution tank. Timers are a great add-on feature and can be used to turn heating elements and oil skimmers on and off. Turning the skimmer on in the middle of the night when the water is not stirred up and the oil has risen to the top helps extend the life of the water and make the skimmer more effective.
