TYPHOON®-AWW Aircraft Wheel Cleaning System

The PROCECO TYPHOON®-AWW aircraft wheel cleaning system is designed to clean up to 30 aircraft wheel hubs of any size in an 8-hour shift (1 wheel every 16 minutes). This unique parts washer complies with environmental regulations and uses the latest aqueous, solvent-free, cleaning technology to remove grease, rubber residues, dirt, and brake dust from wheel hubs prior to their inspection or overhaul.

The standard model uses recirculating, hot alkaline aqueous solution sprayed onto the wheel at high pressure to remove oil, grease, and dirt. At the same time, the rotating brush scrubs the external wheel surface to remove accumulated rubber on the bead seat area. The wheel is then rinsed with fresh water and blow-off dried.

Based on our experience, mechanical scrubbing is the most effective method for removing embedded rubber residues without the application of solvents. To achieve similar results utilizing only water pressure, extensive pressure above 300psi would be required, resulting in more system maintenance and a shorter life span for system components.

PROCECO's ADT immersion lines accommodate a range of processes in the aviation, automotive, and general manufacturing industries, including parts degreasing, anodizing, chemical pickling, and manganese phosphate conversion coating (Lubrite®). PROCECO provides complete solutions from initial concept to turnkey installation.

Tailored to your exact needs, our systems offer automation, process control, dynamic scheduling, and automatic part transfer hoists. Additional processes, such as ultrasonics, agitation, turbulation rotation, and spray cleaning can be integrated into any immersion system to enhance parts cleaning and surface treatment. This flexibility makes PROCECO's ADT immersion lines ideal for any parts manufacturing environment.

When you invest in a PROCECO ADT immersion tank line, you can increase your production output, improve the quality and consistency of your parts cleaning processes, and at the same time significantly reduce your operating costs.



TYPHOON®-OCW Overhead Conveyor Parts Washer

The TYPHOON®-OCW incorporates a powered monorail overhead conveyor to move parts through each process. The machine design saves floor space by hanging long parts from the conveyor vertically rather than conveying them horizontally.

The PROCECO TYPHOON®-OCW can be engineered for parts cleaning, surface pre-treatment, and treatment processes such as phosphating and Lubrite®. Because of PROCECO's modular design approach, various standard modules can be added together to create a multi-stage process. Available modules include recirculated spray wash and rinse, immersion, ultrasonics, drying, and cooling.

To further customize an overhead conveyor system to meet your specific application needs, you can choose to incorporate several other options, such as automatic loading, custom designed parts-holding fixtures, and cleaning solution filtration.

TYPHOON® SI-1 and SI-2 Spray-Immersion Parts Washer

The TYPHOON®-SI is a compact, ergonomically-designed parts washer, ideal for machined component precision cleaning. The SI parts washer can be installed easily and conveniently into a manufacturing cell, and can handle a wide variety of complex small- or medium-size parts using standard baskets (two or four) or custom-engineered PROCECO holding fixtures.

The SI parts washer comes complete with fully recirculated, aqueous immersion wash and rinse. At the beginning of every wet-process stage, the rotating basket fixture is power-sprayed by V-jet spray nozzles filling the immersion tank. Basket rotation during immersion and power-spraying ensures precision cleaning and complete removal of contamination. Following all wet-process stages, the parts are sprayed without immersion, thereby ensuring that they will not be recontaminated.

A high-pressure regenerative blower removes most of the water from the parts; an optional heater is also available.

The TYPHOON® SI-1's cleaning chamber has a capacity of two standard baskets while the SI-2 model has four-basket capacity per batch.
