ACT Produces Aircraft Wheel Cleaning System for Local Air Force Base
Automated Cleaning Technologies recently completed a customized F42 directed spray aircraft wheel cleaning – industrial parts washer system for Randolph Brooks Air Force base, meeting their specific engineering requirements. The system features custom programmed HMI controls that allows the operator to set process-specific cleaning cycles, rinse cycles, blow-off and dry cycles to process aircraft wheel mains and nose wheel halves.
Along with the rest of the primary industrial parts washer components to clean the aircraft wheel assemblies, ACT engineered and manufactured the wheel fixture, which was directly mounted to the turntable. The custom fixture design provides quick loading of wheel halves, which safely position them for optimum cleaning while protecting them from damage. Our industrial parts washer design eliminates metal to metal contact between the aircraft wheel halves and the parts rack. The automated parts cleaning system cleans aircraft wheels without using anyany mechanical scrubbing components that can wear out, require periodic maintenance or potentially damage the wheels.
The industrial parts washer system delivers high impingement through strategically positioned jets mounted around the engineered fixed that are aimed different areas of the wheels. High water pressure, combined with heat and detergency, produces excellent aircraft wheel cleaning results in short 10-minute or less cycles from our industrial parts washers.
We can build automated parts washers for our customers to meet wide budgetary differences as well as low to high production demands. ACT’s F-Series directed spray industrial parts washers are designed to clean a broad variety of parts, including aircraft wheel mains and nose wheel halves, bearings, brakes and hydraulic components.
