Beltline – Steel profiles
Understanding of our customers and many years of dialogue resulted in the production of huge washing system for a Russian company that produces extruded steel profiles for the automotive industry, mainly in Germany.
The customer approached us at an exhibition in Germany and was looking for a washing system for his large production of extruded steel profiles in eastern Russia. All the steel profiles were hot contaminated with oil and dirt which had to be removed following a requirement from a major customer.
It was not washing process and rust protextion of the items during transport to Germany, which in this case was the problem, but instead it was the large amount of items and the handling of these through the washing facility which made it a complex task even for experienced companies like us.
The washing facility itself had to handle 6 – 8 different types of steel profiles with varying lengths from 1000 – 6000 mm, which had to be washed, passivated and dried within a short time. Therefore, the washing facility had to process mere than 6 tons of steel per hour around the clock.
After a long dialogue with various proposed solutions, we found a solution that suited the customer’s production line and we began to design the washing facility based on our conveyor washer with a chain conveyor, but on a very large scale, which ended up being the largest conveyor washer we have ever delivered.
Design, production and installation took less than a year and the washing facility was installed in Russia by our people and in less than a week the customer washing steel profiles. The customer has not experienced any problems since installation, and we have therefore not been in Russia since installation where the washing facility has been running around the clock, which is not always the case in connection with large development projects like this.
Drawing and pictures of the installed cleaning system can be found in the slide above, and you are welcome to contact us for more information about large custom washing systems.
