Rotary Drum Washer

Ideal for Mass Production Applications

Rotary Drum Washers are ideal for washing parts in a mass production application. Stamped parts, fasteners, and ammunition are just some of the applications that utilize Rotary Drum Washers. Parts can be washed in batches, or used in a complete through-feed operation, which allows parts to be fed directly from the washer section to a rotary drying system if required.

The length of the drum can be fully customized based on the customer’s preference. The required helix spacing, and diameter of the machine is determined by the parts being washed.

There are many drum material options making the Rotary Drum Washer ideal for small parts that would be difficult to wash in a belt, cabinet, or agitation washer.

Parts are spiraled through the cleaning drum chamber via the helix auger and are submerged in liquid and sprayed via a nozzle-equipped manifold for complete tumbled cleaning. Parts may pass through various soak, wash, drain, and rinse sections. Rust inhibitor and drying sections are also available.

Rotary Drum Washers vary in auger pitch and drum diameter based on the following specifications:

  • Standard inner drum diameters are 18’’, 24’’, 30’’, and 36’’.
  • The standard helix auger inside the drum has a 12’’ pitch, with optional 3’’ increments. The smallest available pitch is 6’’.
