Rotajet Continuous IBC Washing / Tote Washing System


IBC WASHING MACHINEROTAJET IBC WASHING MACHINE


Description:


Rotajet Systems Limited manufactures a range of continuous IBC washing and Tote washing machines, these machines are generally used by large container reconditioning companies  for IBC washing and Tote washing prior to IBC and Tote drying and IBC pressure testing.

Stage 1. (Outside wash / inspection)
Generally in large scale reconditioning plants, the IBC`s and Totes are initially drained of all excess chemical residues, the containers are then transferred to a external inspection and wash, the external wash removes all external labels and stubborn stains.
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 2. (Prewash) (Number of sections depend on throughput)
The IBC`s or Totes are then transferred in to a initial prewash section that uses high flow nozzles and a heated caustic solution to remove neutralize and remove the bulk of the chemical residues. The solution used is filtered and ready for reuse. Rotajet can manufacture the IBC washers and Totes washers to be heated via, electric, gas, oil or steam.

If steam is available, we would recommend the initial prewash is done with steam.
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 3. (High pressure wash) (Number of sections depends on throughput)
High pressure wash, the IBC`s or Totes are transferred from the prewash chamber into the high pressure station, this station uses a Rotating nozzle at a pressure between 150-170 BAR to clean the internal of the IBC using water. The used solution is filtered and reuse.
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 4. (Low pressure wash) (Number of sections depends on throughput)
Low pressure wash, the IBC`s or Totes are transferred from the high pressure wash section  into the low pressure station, this station uses a low pressure nozzle at a pressure between 6-7 BAR to clean the internal of the IBC using water. The used solution is filtered and reuse.
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 5. (Vacuum drying) (Number of sections depends on throughput)
Any excess liquid is drained from the IBC`s or Totes, the containers are then sucked out using a vacuum
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 6. (Hot drying) (Number of sections depends on throughput)
Hot air drying is used for the final drying of the IBC and Totes, Rotajet IBC and Tote dryers use a air recirculation system via a heat exchanger chamber to reheat used air to achieve extremely quick drying times, with very low operating costs.
Depending on the number of IBC or Totes required to wash, this stage will take place in a number of sections, to increase throughput

Stage 7. (Pressure testing) (Number of sections depends on throughput)
Once clean and dry, the IBC`s and Totes are pressure tester to ensure the container does not have any leaks.

 

The IBC washer and Tote washers manufactured by Rotajet are fitted with PLC and can be control be a remote operator. The pH of storage tanks and temperatures are data logged and controlled and all containers process route is recorded for traceability.
