EKW-1500 crate washer
- for boxes with a size of 600 x 400 mm (based on E-boxes).
- Maximum height of the boxes is 410 mm.
- for the cleaning of 170 crates per hour with a retention time of 45 seconds and a transport width of 600 mm.
The whole system is constructed of solid plates and profiles (stainless steel 304 – material number 1.4301.) and stands on adjustable feet. The wash tunnel can be tilted in two parts to the left and right, giving spacious access to the interior. The crate transport is realized by a plastic chain. The flushing pipes are equipped with a large number of nozzles. In the rinsing zone the crates are rinsed with clear water. The rinsing arch is directly connected to the water network.
- Closures on the washing tunnel covers
- Good and easy to reach emergency switches.
- Water level switch to prevent the pumps from running dry.
- Protective cap over drives and rotating parts.
In the main washing zone the crates are cleaned and the contamination of the crates is removed. The nozzles are configured for maximum cleaning results. They are fed by a powerful energy-saving pump. Before the rinse water is returned to the water tank for reuse, it is thoroughly filtered through a filter drawer. The filter drawer is easy to remove and the spacious water tank is easily accessible. The main wash tank is filled via its own filling connection which is equipped with level sensors. A high level sensor switches off the water supply as soon as the water reaches the operating level. A low level sensor opens the water supply if the water level is too low.
An overflow prevents the water level from becoming too high. A ball valve is installed for emptying the main wash tank. This allows the container to be emptied quickly and safely. The water tank is designed with a bottom slope so that the water flows away quickly when emptied.
In the rinsing zone, the rinsing water (or adhering cleaning agents) of the crates is rinsed off with fresh water. For this purpose, the spray arc is connected directly to the water network.
