Prep-Tec bucket, drum & pail washing machines eliminate unpleasant and time consuming manual cleaning of water based ink & dye containers using a minimum amount of water and energy consumption. All machines are manufactured from 304 quality Stainless steel.
The machines thoroughly clean the inside, the outside and the bottom of drums up to 220 ltr in approximately one minute. The operation begins by inserting the bucket or drum between the three cylindrical brushes and closing the door which houses a fourth brush which holds it firmly in place. The operator then simply chooses the wash cycle required depending upon the degree of contamination and then presses the start button. Cleaning takes place by the inner and outer brushes rotating whilst recycled water is pumped from the water saving tank through spray tubes to the inside and outside of the drum. During the initial first few seconds of the wash cycle the contaminated water is automatically directed out of the machine to drain, thus reducing sludge build up in the water saving tank. Fresh water is then introduced via a solenoid valve connected to the town's water supply again through the spray tubes. This water is automatically directed into the water saving tank. At the same time the brushes reverse rotation, thus maximizing bristle life and ensuring complete inner and outer brush contact.
