The machine is pass-through tunnel machine and is designed to clean standard E1-E3 plastic crates. It consists of zones for pre-washing, washing and rinsing, blowing-off.
Pre-washing and washing processes are performed in identical way – by means of centrifugal pumps and adjustable (by hand) nozzles. The washing agent is added manually in the tanks before starting the machine (option – automatic dosing systems). The tanks are equipped with manually cleaned filters for catching the bigger soils. The water in both tanks can be heated by means of electric heaters or a injectors for direct steam. The desired water temperature can be adjusted between 30-60°C via thermostat. For the rinsing is used general water supply. After the rinsing this water is used also for refreshing and additional filling of the main washing tank.In the last zone high pressure blowers and air knives blow off the water from all sides of the crates.
The machines are designed for operation by single operator. The crates are placed on transport rollers with their bottom down over the machine. By pushing they are transported to the turning mechanism from where they reach the washing zone. The further transport is done by transport chain. For washing of crates with different heights the rollers of the turning mechanism can be manually adjusted. Transport speed in the machine is smoothly adjustable. The gear motor is equipped with sliding connector to prevent eventual injuries to the personnel.
