Aerospace Aftermarket Repair Station Component Cleaning

This machine was originally part of an aerospace bearing remanufacturing cell that worked on the following basis.


Stage 1: Pre-Inspection Wash Tank and Filter to remove initial debris [DA1415 Wash Tank and Filter]

Stage 1: Kerosene (Exxsol D80) Spray Wash to remove additional debris [DA1414 Vixen Tristar Conveyor Degreaser]

The component is placed on the rolling table inside the spray wash; the rolling table is pushed to the far end of the spray wash through the clear plastic curtain to the rear of the clear enclosure. The nozzle of the hand held spray gun is push through the slits in the plastic curtain. The component is thoroughly sprayed until all the loose debris is removed. The rolling table is pulled back through the plastic curtain and allowed to drain for 5 minutes before inspection.


Component is inspected for wear and/or damage and categorised for repair. Machinery not applicable

Clean Before Repair

Stage 1: Tank 1 and/or Tank 2 Ardrox 185 De-greaser [DA1416 5 Station Cleaning System]

The Ardrox 185 is heated in tank 1 or tank 2 to the operating temperature of 98 to 100 degrees Centigrade before any component is placed in the tank. Once Tank 1 or 2 is at temperature the component is either placed in a basket or on its own placed into tank 1 or 2 making sure the component is fully immersed in the Ardrox 185. The component is left in tank 1 or 2 for 10 minutes.

Stage 2: Tank 3 Water wash

After the 10 minutes has elapsed the component is removed from tank 1 or 2 and placed in tank 3 where it is manually agitated and/or sprayed with water to remove any remnants of the Ardrox 185. Allow the component to drain sufficiently over the tank before proceeding to the next stage

Stage 3: De-watering oil dip Rustilo DWX 32

After the component has been washed it is then dipped in Tank 4 containing de-watering oil this is solvent deposited rust preventative oil making sure the entire component has been immersed in the oil, after removal from tank 4 the component is placed on a trolley ready for repair.
