Hi Jim, Just sending a quick email about the Hotwash that you sold us. We have finally used it for our first major overhaul of our fillers. We managed to get two fillers and one corker stripped and overhauled over the Christmas break. The Hotwash has vastly improved the standard to which we clean parts and the time it takes to clean the parts. In the past we normally have 4 x TA’s cleaning all parts by hand which would take about 4 days. We managed to have all parts cleaned in one day which enabled us to complete two filler overhauls (filling heads & lifting feet) of which one filler contains 100 filling heads and the other has 72. As you will see from some photo’s attached the heads and feet have cleaned up really well and the added bonus of 90 degree temperature, we now sterilise our heads at the same time. We have set up our Hotwash with pallet tank at the back which we pump caustic in and out of to recycle as we need to rinse in citric acid as the stainless components can start to corrode so we are using the Hotwash to rinse as well. We are extremely happy with the reliability of the machine and are particularly impressed with the performance of the unit. We would highly recommend a Hotwash machine to anyone who has a workshop that needs to improve their parts cleaning productivity and reduce costs.
