Amsonic Cleaning Line with configuration of: - Load Station, Two Heated Tanks, Three Rinse Tanks and Drain/Inspect Station.

Parts are held in hexagonal baskets (Eight off) manufactured from perforated stainless steel, gear driven from the centre spindle at one end. Dimensions: 285 mm across flat of hexagon by 540 mm long.
