WHEELSET WASHER AND CLEANING SYSTEMS

  • PROCECO offers integrated aqueous cleaning systems for wheelsets of all kinds of rolling stock: Diesel & electric locomotives, freight & passenger cars, EMUs/DMUs, light rail & mass transit systems.
  • Our family of wheelset washers is customized for all designs, load capacities, rail gauges, and also covers the following wheelset-mounted components: traction motor gears, axle cap and U-tube traction motor suspensions, traction motor gearboxes, as well as single- and multi-disc brake discs.
  • Automatic, floor-level, rail-fed/roll-through cleaning systems to be integrated into your MRO wheelset handling system: The automatic operation of this wheelset cleaning system typically follows this sequence: Operators line up wheelsets in front of machine entrance door opens auto loader pulls one wheelset into the cleaning chamber wheelset rotates while being processed through multi-stage cleaning process auto loader ejects wheelset onto outgoing track.
    Production rate: up to 4 locomotive wheelsets per hour.
  • Crane-fed, Single Wheelset/Load Cleaning Systems for low-volume production: Manually open clam-shell lid, place wheelset with crane onto rotating rollers inside cleaning chamber and start programmable multi-stage cleaning process. Unload wheelset with crane.
    Production rate: 2-3 wheelsets per hour.
  • Cleaning Process: Automatic cleaning process consists of recirculated, hot, water-based cleaning solution with low percentage of alkali detergent optional hot-water rinse with optional rust inhibitor optional blow-off drying. All machines include automatic sludge removal and oil/grease skimming systems, thereby reducing detergent consumption and extending intervals between tank clean-outs.
  • Our automatic wheelset cleaning systems meet your cleanliness specifications, adapt to your production environment, and permit reconditioning and MRO according to AAR (Association of American Railroads) standards and guidelines.
