LOCOMOTIVE DIESEL ENGINE CLEANING SYSTEMS

  • PROCECO offers a variety of systems to wash train and transit vehicle engines. Available upgrade options include an adjustable engine support fixture accommodating various engine sizes, an engine frame rotating device, and engine frame lifting bar (adjustable), to integrated inbound and outbound conveyance buffers.
  • Our aqueous cleaning systems effectively clean carbon, oil, and grease from engine blocks, oil pans, crankshafts, camshafts, power assemblies, and other accessory components. The level of cleaning quality achieved permits reconditioning and MRO according to AAR standards and guidelines for locomotives.
  • These washers are equipped with automatic sludge removal and oil/grease skimming systems to reduce detergent cost and extend the intervals between solution replacements.
  • Cleaning Process: In all our locomotive diesel engine cleaning systems, the process consists of a water-based, recirculated, hot, high-impact, high pump-volume power spray with a low percentage of heavy-duty alkaline detergent, followed by a non-recirculated freshwater rinse with optional injection of rust inhibitor and an optional compressed air blow-off stage.

Locomotive Engine Washers

Locomotive engine washer achieve effective cleaning of carbon, paint, oil and grease from engine frame and components

PROCECO designs our LEW Locomotive Engine Washers to wash and rinse diesel engine blocks mounted onto a rotary fixture, with oil pans and other parts deposited directly onto the cabinet platform. A recirculating wash solution followed by a hot freshwater rinse guarantee removal of all dirt and chemical residues from the workpieces.

Washer operators place the engine block on a rotating fixture and then load the block/fixture assembly into the process cabinet with an overhead crane. A reciprocating spray nozzle frame travels the entire length of the cabinet, spraying from all sides, while the block/fixture rotates. After first cleaning all exterior and interior surfaces of the block, the washing program activates a special flushing cycle to clean the interior of the block's oil galleries.

To process oil pans, crankshafts, racks of power assemblies, and baskets of miscellaneous steel parts, operators place them directly onto the loading platform inside the cabinet where the reciprocating nozzle frame thoroughly removes all dirt and residues.

Production rate: 1 engine block per hour or 1 load per hour

TYPHOON®-RCP

Effective cleaning and degreasing system for molds, dies and matrix

On this model, operators place the engine block directly onto the loading platform inside the spray cabinet where it remains stationary while the reciprocating nozzle frame travels the length of the cabinet and sprays the block from all sides. This cabinet features two powered sliding doors to provide access for top loading with crane as well as front loading with forklift truck. After first cleaning all exterior and interior surfaces of the block, the washing program activates a special flushing cycle to clean the interior of the oil galleries.
