Drum Washer Tunnel

The Drum Washer Tunnel Systems Model DWT Series is a conveyor/tunnel system that is automated and capable of washing and rinsing upto 100 drums per hour (DWT-100 Model) & 200 drums per hour (DWT-200 Model). The system uses both static and rotating spray nozzles that will wash and clean open top drums. The conveyor speed is adjustable from 1 to 24 feet per minute for varying soil conditions.

The Drum Washer Tunnel DWT Series is engineered for continuous operation. This system is shipped completely pre-plumbed and pre-wired ready for simple connections to complete the washing system installation between modules. As the drums travel further on the conveyor, the washed drums pass through the rinse chamber and are processed in the same manner as the wash chamber insuring that 100% of the drum is rinsed.

The system uses static spray bar system or fixed wash nozzles that form a spray tunnel within the main wash chamber. As the drum travels on the conveyor passing through the main wash chamber that contains the static spray bar system or fixed wash nozzles, 100% of the exterior surface of the drums are washed. 100% of the interior of the drum is washed using a high speed 400 rpm rotary nozzle.
