The Weston Engineering wash tank is an Immersion washing and processing plant which mechanically agitates parts in a chemical solution.

The agitating method is simple: 

Moving the dirty parts up and down in the process solution rapidly, shears dirt from the parts. Using a long stroke will bring the parts up and out of the solution and help with the flushing action. Large parts can be placed on a parts fixture for individual washing or in a basket for smaller parts.

Each vertical motion causes the solution to flood over the surface of the components including any deep recesses or pockets with a plunger action. This removes all types of dirt and grease utilising a wide range of cleaning compounds such as alkaline, solvents, emulsions, phosphate, acids and soaps.

The simple design is virtually trouble free, the outboard-mounted, cantilevered agitation platform eliminates the need for internal guide members and rollers and this allows for better and easier maintenance schedules, cleaner components and longer life.

  • Gas fired tube heating system
