Why automated parts wash?

An automated press parts washing system can be an excellent addition to most printing operations. Adding an automated wash system can speed up the cleaning process, greatly increasing availability of needed parts, and reducing operation downtime. Automated parts washers also free-up manual labor resources for more important operational tasks. and reduce human exposure to dangerous solvents.

Other benefits include:

  • reduces facility liability against fires associated with flammable cleaning solvents
  • reduces solvent cost and storage
  • reduces critical press parts storage – available clean parts
  • dry and vapor recovery technology provides maximum efficiency and solvent recovery
  • automatically washes, rinses and dries parts

Other benefits include:

  • reduces liability against cleaning solvent hazards
  • reduces solvent cost and storage
  • reduces critical press parts storage
  • clean parts more readily available on hand
  • dry and vapor recovery technology provides maximum efficiency and solvent recovery
  • automatically washes, rinses and dries parts

Why automated parts wash?

Complete closed-loop recovery.

Our wash systems are often incorporated into a complete turn-key solvent recovery and recycling solution, using a closed-loop process. In this process, spent solvent is collected and fed into a distillation unit, where the contaminants can be separated from the reusable solvent. Contaminants are discarded and reusable solvent is automatically fed back through the process.

Complete closed-loop recovery.

More than 100 jets provide aggressive but gentle wash action.

The PRI Solvent Wash System is designed for effective cleaning, applying a cleansing wash solution where it will be most effective at the proper spray pressures, for safe operation within the wash chamber. Our enclosed design offers:

  • over 100 jets of solvent cleaning solution
  • wash solution directed through oscillating headers
  • rinse, dry, recover and exhaust cycles ensure thorough cleaning
  • pump delivering over 100 psig, at full power in a matter of seconds

Dry & Vapor Recovery System

Recover and condense gas solvents back into liquid form.

Recover and condense gas solvents into liquid.

PRI’s Dry and Vapor Recovery System not only provides dry press-ready parts, it also greatly reduces the amount of solvent use due to VOC loss when the chamber is evacuated.

The vapor recovery system condenses the solvent gas cloud inside the washer back into reusable liquid. Washers without this feature will lose as much as 10lbs of solvent per wash cycle, while the PRI Dry and Vapor Recovery System can cut exhaust emissions per cycle to as low as 0.7 lbs depending upon the wash solvent used.

Designed for Safety & Efficiency

PRI SWS wash chambers are designed to be completely sealed during use and utilize a quick closing “Marine” style door, with a solvent-proof door seal to prevent leaks during the wash and rinse portion of the rinse cycle. This prevents solvent emissions from escaping the wash chamber.

Other brand wash systems utilize an exhaust system between an interior Splash Door and the Front Door to prevent the escape of fugitive vapors leaking into the wash room area, promoting excessive loss of wash solvent whenever the washer is running.

Need an easy way to load parts? Try a press parts cart.

PRI builds custom parts carts designed to maximize the efficiency of your wash process. Our carts make loading and unloading the system easier, and with integrated hoses and spray headers available, make the process more effective.

Our carts are application-specific, engineered to clean the unique parts that you have. Our goal will be to make the most effective use of the chemical and energy used to clean your parts. In addition, a parts cart can help operators from mis-loading or stacking parts.
