The cleaning system consists of a 2-pump rack, which has been equipped with only one pump of the type P10S. The system has the option of adding chemistry via a diaphragm pump in the inlet of the high-pressure pump. The pump unit itself has no EX-protection, therefore the whole rack was installed in a technical area 15 meters away from the washing area. The wash-head, the crane-system and operating panel are EX-secured and have been installed in the EX-protected area.
Pump system data:
- 100 bar
- 40 l/min
- Hot water operation (customer-side 60°C)
- 10 kW drive motor, controlled via soft start
- Low-speed pump with 450 1/min
This is attached to a wash plate with a safety switch to cover the container opening. The setting up and setting down of the complete washing head plate is carried out by the operator. For this purpose, a pneumatically crane system was used.
At the operating panel the operator can also easily activate a manual high-pressure gun for the manual external cleaning of the containers. Via the high-pressure plug-in coupling system, the operator can connect the required lance to the high-pressure gun.
This year, PLATZ® was commissioned with the extension of the second pump into the rack, and the installation of a complete second wash station at a different area.
