Occupational Health & Safety
Cleaning parts manually with solvents not only poses a threat to you and your workers’ health, but you are throwing money down the drain. The level of government intervention into issues concerning levels of worker safety is steadily increasing. It makes sense for today’s employers and contractors to be aware of their responsibilities towards their employees.
Valuable employees should be doing other more profitable jobs in your workshop. Let a fast, reliable, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, and cost effective Hotwash Automatic Parts Degreaser do a much better and a far cheaper cleaning job for you.
The “All New” Hotwash Automatic Degreasing Machine is the only Australian made, aqueous based spray wash on the market today with an 800mm diameter, motorised gear drive turntable for added operator safety.
With Occupational Health & Safety and ease of operation in mind, the operator’s well-being was the foremost concern in the most recent machine design and has been incorporated where possible.
Operator safety is assured with the gear driven turntable instantly stopping when the electronic cycle times out or the lid is opened during operation eliminating any chance of operator entanglement.
Ergonomics when unloading cleaned parts are not compromised with the incorporation of a “jog” button allowing the operator to safely rotate the cleaned parts mechanically to the front of the machine for unloading. This prevents back strains and reduces operator downtime.
The gear-driven turntable provides a better quality clean as it is not free spinning and switches off when the door is opened to improve operator safety. The standard lid interlock is included to further enhance safety by shutting down the pump and basket if the lid is opened mid cycle.
Cleaning performance is much improved as water pressure previously used for rotating the basket is now utilised through bigger jets sizes resulting in a better and faster cleaning process. Items such as gear boxes are cleaner as the casings rotates past the spray jets at a slow and controlled rate, allowing water to penetrate internal cavities
Reliability is improved by ensuring the basket is mechanically rotating at a steady, even pace. The gear drive system does not rely on water pressure or regularly serviced basket bearings to provide smooth reliable basket rotation.
The level of government intervention into issues concerning levels of worker safety is steadily increasing. It makes sense for today’s employers and contractors to be aware of their responsibility towards their employees. The Western Australian Department of Occupational Health and Safety are most concerned with levels of toxic and chemical exposure to workers employed in industry. Rules, regulations and working conditions are constantly being reviewed to examine the safety of workers and to ensure the well-being of staff under your care.
To ignore these changes is courting disaster!
The “Hot Wash” parts degreasing machine is an excellent way to reduce levels of worker exposure to harsh solvents and hydrocarbons while dramatically increasing workshop productivity. The “Hot Wash” parts degreaser automatically cleans parts using heated water mixed with biodegradable detergent. The detergent supplied is very safe and adheres to the strict safety guidelines set down by many large corporations and government departments.
The process of automatic parts washing reduces the risk to workers’ health, protects the interests of your company and improves your bottom line
