This purely mechanical transport system for recyclable containers is a simply constructed alternative to the clamping jaw crate washer. The turning wheel washer cleans, empties and turns the beverage crates in one step and guarantees a long lifespan through the omission of wear parts. Furthermore, the beverage crates are brought to a higher level. The compact dimensions and the simple construction of the machines are another argument that speak for the use of this progressive construction form.
The beverage and food industry has very high quality and hygiene requirements for clean and microbiologically pure recyclables. With Klotzki Maschinenbau’s over 35 years of experience in the area of cleaning recyclable transportation containers, a technology was developed with the patented spiral crate washer that obtains an optimal and microbiologically perfect result in an economically and ecologically sufficient manner. A smaller version of the spiral crate washer or turning wheel washer is also available for a smaller budget. The size and performance of both can be adjusted exactly to your requirements through the module construction.
The crate rinser was developed for the short spraying off of containers. For extremely dusty returned objects, it is often necessary to clean these off roughly before further processing or to temper the bottles. The compact dimensions and simple construction are wonderful properties of this product. This allows the system to be optimally connected between the transport systems.
The clamping jaw crate washer separates the crates/recyclable containers and cleans them while they are moved upwards through a clamping jaw system. Loose pieces remaining in the crates, like labels, leaves, etc., are also removed during this process. They fall down and are transported outwards through a shaft. This cleaning is supported through the arrangement of the nozzles, which hit all sides of the crate with a spraying pressure of approximately 4 bar.
This cleaning system works in a continuous process with mechanical crate separation. This guarantees that the gaps are also cleaned in an optimal manner. The lye filtering is guaranteed through a slot screen.
Water nozzle high pressure applications are used more and more when high mechanical powers are additionally needed during the wet processing of components. These can be used in order to remove stubborn stains, to roughen surfaces or even to deburr edges. The process is versatile and requires a lot of know-how, which the Klotzki employees have through years of experience in this area.
