Robust - Heavy Duty
Body / Structure
The ADITRON rotary jets high jet pressure spray washing machine
is designed to wash / degrease and rinse components in a single
cabinet. Robustly fabricated from 6 mm mild steel plate, the
machine comprises a front loading wash cabinet located over
heated media sumps with manual or a pneumatically actuated
optional - vertical sliding door to the front. Electric heating
As far as possible the complete resoirvoir of the machine
is insulated with 50 mm mineral / glass wool slabs held in
position and protected by an outer skin of 20’s gauge, galvanized
sheet metal, finish painted with metal primer and 2 coats
of final painting - to customer specifications.
Enhanced Performance of ADITRON Rotating
Cleaning / Degreasing / Washing is achieved by direct &
indirect impingement of high pressure media, hot (70-80°
C) your selected detergent solution, delivered at a nominal
4 - 5 bar pressure by means of spray arms rotating around
a mesh basket containing the compnents - the parts to be cleaned.
The imported stainless steel nozzles with ‘Vee’ pattern jetting
is fitted to the spray arms, set in line such that the sprays
merge to provide all round coverage as the spray arms rotate
- as explained in the photograph Schematic Spray Pattern of
the Aditron Rotating Jet Machine.
The upper spray rotating arm that jets from above and all
sides, has a slow rotary motion, achieved by means of a leakless
coupling and a gear drive. The slow rotation motion aids jet
penetration, eliminates shading and generally improves cleaning
efficiency. The jet driven lower spray arm is located beneath
the load bearing rails and jets upwards to clean the underside
Carrying the Components in Heavy Duty
Baskets with Wheels
Load bearing rails within the ADITRON machine are aligned
with similar rails located on an external fixed platform or
mobile trolley for basket bogie transfer, alternatively, roller
track may be fitted in the rails. Nominal load weight for
manual transfer is recommended. This can be increased dramatically.
(Optionally, power load transfer is available at extra cost).
This design overcomes all problems faced by the customers
in the rotating Basket plants of rotating loaded heavy basket
- stopping at location and loading unloading problems - this
design is faster - more effective - efficient.
Return flow filter baskets are fitted as standard with the
option to fit in line particulate filtration between the pump
and the jets with filteration system attachment elements available
from 800 microns to 10 microns.
A Motorised skimmer or Special type oil skimmer is offered
to the wash sump to periodically remove surface oil contamination
from the cleaning solution.
Steam / Fume Extraction at extra cost - if required
Steam extraction by means of a bifurcated fan is fitted as
optional or a condenser unit may be fitted.
Efficient cleaning is achieved by direct and indirect impingement
by high volume hot detergent, delivered under high pressure
from rotating spray bars. These contain ‘VEE’ pattern jets
which merge the spray to ensure 100% coverage of the washing
space. High heat input gives rapid heat up time and fast temperature
Components rapidly “FLASH” dry on removal from the ADITRON
LOW RUNNING COSTS
Efficient insulation of the reservoier and total covered
unit outer surfaces keeps heat inside cabinet, with heat loss
during load/unload operations being prevented by a shed plate
covering the integral sump. The machine uses a recirculating
hot water system containing as little detergent keeping chemical

CONTROLS AND ANCILLARY EQUIPMENT
ADITRON Degreasing / Washing / Cleaning Machines are supplied
complete with a fully wired control panel containing safety
features with relays, contractors and cycle timers. The panel
door houses an interlocking isolator, cycle start and emergency
stop button, on/off
heater switch and indicator lights. On most machines standard
fittings include temperature control, temperature and pressure
indicator gauges, a 1½ “ sump drain valve, a large
clean-out door and a removable perforated return flow filter.
