Continuous Drum Washers

If you need to recondition many drums per day there is no better solution than Rotajet’s fully automated continuous drum washers

Operation of our automated drum washers

Rotajet manufacture a series of continuous drum washing machines. These machines are generally used by large drum and barrel reconditioning companies for decontamination prior to crushing or reuse. 

Generally, the drum washers and barrel washers use a heated caustic wash in the first stage to remove any chemical residues left in the barrel or drum. After this stage, the drums are then rinsed using water and then dried.

The drums can be manually loaded onto a walking beam which walks the drums through the machine or automatically loaded. The smallest machine single track drum washer will clean up to 60 drums per hour. Rotajet can increase the number of stations, increasing the throughput to 100 drums per hour. Due to the transfer times, after 100 drums per hour, we recommend that a multi-track machine is used. 

Rotajet fit the machines with integral sumps which contain the washing and rinsing cleaning liquids. These sumps are fitted with coarse and fine filtration that prolongs the operating life of the working solutions. The Rotajet drum and barrel washers are fitted with high pressure rotating spray nozzles that give total cleaning coverage ensuring the containers are completely clean. 

Rotajet also manufacture a range of Atex drum and barrel washing machines, these are usually batch type machines to contain and condense any flammable vapours from the drum washing process details of these can be found at www.containerwashing.co.uk
