Developed in cooperation with manufacturers of multi-head weighers, Douglas Machines’ scale parts washers are designed to quickly and efficiently clean detachable scale parts such as weigh and feed buckets, chutes and feeder pans. Specialized wash racks can be loaded at the weigh station and transported to the washer for easy cleaning. Douglas Machines’ scale parts washers can be used with a ramp or installed in a pit or mezzanine for floor level loading/unloading.
Wash water is pumped through rotating spray arms fitted with high velocity stainless steel V jets designed to cut and remove stubborn soils. Wash cycles are selected from a short, medium or long sequence (4, 6 or 8 minutes) depending on soil conditions. Each wash cycle is followed by a 30 second hot water, sanitizing rinse. The rinse water is routed back into the wash tank for reuse and to help freshen it. An optional steam extraction fan vacates the steam before the door is opened. Filters collect debris and keep the nozzles from clogging. Machines are equipped with electric, gas or steam booster heaters to maintain proper operating temperatures.
Regardless of the model, each Douglas Machines’ scale parts washer features:
- Recirculating detergent wash tank
- Separate, fresh water sanitizing rinse tank
The ideal Douglas Machines’ scale parts washer for you depends on the quantity of heads on your weigh scale, the desired wash time, space limitations and budget considerations.
