RAMCO CM 48ESS Aja-Kleen Series Stainless Steel Immersion Parts Washer
Includes, Heaters, Wash Pump, and Oscillating Table
The standard CM Series is designed for loads from 500 up to
2000 pounds and is custom built for loads up to 5000 pounds. RAMCO Aja-Kleen Washers are without a doubt the most rugged mechanical agitation systems built.
Immersion in a liquid bath is the simplest way of covering surfaces. It is indeed the most common form of parts washing. It is also the simplest way of covering irregular surfaces and reaching intricacies and the inside of hollow forms with a cleaning solution. RAMCO Immersion Technology begins with platform oscillation. With each oscillation of the platform elevator mechanical force consistently moves fluid over surfaces and disperses contaminants while applying fresh solution to newly exposed surfaces.
Platform oscillation is an easy, reliable and cost effective way of accelerating cleaning action.
The CM Series is designed for heavy loads from 500 pounds to 5000 pounds. The construction is heavy gauge, steel or stainless steel. The outer tank lip is flanged and raised to trap solution and minimize spillage onto exterior walls. Structural girths are provided around the perimeter of the tank. The tank is double welded in critical locations for added strength. The tank bottom is welded onto I beams. The rear wall, external structural angles and tank bottom are welded together to form a unitized fabrication that transfers load forces to the ground.
The transport elevator is engineered for maximum strength using structural channel and I beam with heavy section modulus and/or formed channel. It tracks on internal structural angles with large UHMW bearings to transfer the weight load to the rear wall and ground. Roller bearings are mounted externally at critical locations
to evenly distribute the load and eliminate cylinder maintenance. The elevator will not jam. There is no worry about eccentric loading. There is no cylinder wear. This design provides superior structural stability and longevity.
The CM Series has the unique feature of combining variable lengths of stroke with variable speeds of stroke to create an infinite number of motion combinations to handle a variety of applications. It uses a simple and time tested pneumatic oscillating circuit. Speed and stroke controls are infinitely variable with agitation speeds in excess of 250 strokes per minute. The standard RAMCO pneumatic package includes only NFPA (National Fluid Power Association) cylinders and components to provide the highest reliability. Our design virtually eliminates cylinder wear for years of trouble free service.
The CM Series can handle a wide assortment of part sizes and configurations. A broad spectrum of cleanliness levels can be satisfied. Starting with a rugged
basic oscillating parts washer you can integrate additional stages and features to meet many requirements including full automation.
Immersion Technology—The RAMCO Difference
RAMCO Immersion Technology is defined as the use of a combination of mechanical motions within a liquid bath or drying chamber to facilitate a specific process objective.
The process can be general cleaning for applications like degreasing, precision cleaning, or stripping. The soils to be removed typically are oil, grease, dirt, smut, chips, polishing compounds, carbon, paint, ink, wax, casting residues, oxides, etc.
The process can also involve surface treatment, surface preparation, penetrant inspection or other procedures where parts are immersed in a liquid processing chamber.
The key to the RAMCO system is the effective use of an elevator within each processing chamber. The elevator is used to transport the work into and out of the chamber but its most important function is to continuously move the work within the processing zone. It is this dynamic function that allows RAMCO systems to achieve superior results in washing, rinsing and drying.
We call this Dynamic Flow Combination. The effect of Dynamic Flow Combination is better coverage of component surfaces (minimizing standing waves and/or part shadowing) producing more consistent results and accelerated processing times.
TURBO WASHING and RINSING
Combining platform oscillation with solution turbo (spray under immersion) results in constantly changing flow patterns. RAMCO turbo systems are proven to accelerate processing time.
Automatic Opening and Closing Cover
Manual (counter-balanced or spring loaded) covers left open result in loss of heat and chemical as well as increasing the chance of solution splashing out of the tank. Aja-Kleen Washers include automatic opening/closing covers on every unit for economy and to ensure safe operation.
Other Standard Features and Benefits
- Heated Aja-Kleen systems are insulated.
- Digital indicating temperature controllers are standard on all heated systems.
- Every electrical panel has a 110 volt control circuit for safety.
- All electric heaters are type 316 stainless steel.
- Aja-Kleens easily abut to form multi-stage systems using minimal floor space.
The Oscillating Cylinder
Special “factory only” cylinders and components can become a problem in maintaining your machine. “Maintenance Kits” are often required to keep you up and running. RAMCO uses only NFPA cylinders (National Fluid Power Association, an established industry recognized source of standards for pneumatic components) to provide the highest reliability and broad interchangeability with many standard industrial brands. Our design virtually eliminates cylinder wear for years of trouble free service. The cylinder is guaranteed for life.
The Oscillating Pneumatic Circuit
Built for reliability and versatility, the RAMCO pneumatic circuit is the best in the industry. Speed and stroke controls are variable with agitation speeds in excess of 250 strokes per minute. An air filter, regulator and lubricator is included with every system. The overall simplicity in design makes maintenance easy. The Aja-Kleen has the unique feature of combining variable lengths of stroke with variable speeds of stroke to create an infinite number of motion combinations to handle a variety of different cleaning problems.
The construction is heavy gauge carbon (or type 304 stainless) steel. Each washer is made with a minimum 3/16″ plate rear wall, 3/16″ elevators and ten gauge construction elsewhere. The outer tank lip is flanged and raised to trap solution and minimize spillage onto exterior walls. Structural girths are provided around the perimeter of the tank and it is double welded in critical locations for added strength. The tank bottom is welded onto I beam. The rear wall, external structural angles and tank bottom are welded together to form a unitized fabrication that transfers load forces to the floor. This provides superior structural stability.
The lowering and lifting method is engineered to put strength in and take stress out. The load is supported on a structural I beam elevator. It tracks on internal structural angles with large UHMW bearings or V groove casters (carbon steel systems). Roller bearings are mounted externally at critical locations to evenly distribute the load and eliminate all cylinder maintenance. The elevator will not jam. There is no worry about eccentric loading. There is no cylinder wear.
