The Vixen Tristar 500 is rotary parts washer fitted with a continuous moving (variable speed) stainless steel drum that conveys the components through the different wash & dry processes, developed to wash parts that cannot be tumbled due to risk of damage.

The Tristar houses a rotating drum which has an 'Archimedes' continuous screw fitted to the internal wall. This means that as the drum rotates, the turning of the screw moves the parts forwards. The parts go through three stages within the drum, immersion wash, spray wash wash and hot air dry.

This Tristar 500 machine has been developed to provide a continuous throughput of parts that need to be degreased and dried in large quantities on a continuous basis from such machines as CNC lathes and auto's
