AXLE WASHERS AND CLEANING SYSTEMS

  • PROCECO offers systems to clean new and used railway axles of all gauges, designs, and load capacities. All cleaning systems use recirculating hot, water-based cleaning solutions at high pump volume and spray pressure.
  • For cleaning of new axles after machining, a fully automatic multi-stage process includes spray cleaning with low-percentage alkali detergent spray rinsing with rust inhibitor blow-off drying and cooling stage measuring wheel seats for wheel fit.
  • For cleaning new axles coming out of storage requiring the removal of COSMOLINE-type petroleum-based corrosion inhibitors, PROCECO systems use low concentrations of aqueous-based detergents at high temperature.
    Production capacity: Up to 15 axles per hour.
  • For cleaning of used axles, PROCECO can add an additional brush-cleaning stage using rotating steel wire brushes on the rotating axle to perfectly clean the wheel seats and bearing seats on both ends of the axles simultaneously.
    Production capacity: Up to 8 axles per hour.
  • Our automatic parts cleaning systems permit precise, non-destructive inspection and measuring of critical features according to AAR (Association of American Railroads) standards and guidelines.
  • PROCECO also offers parts washers and cleaning systems for wheels and wheelsets.
