It can’t be overstated how important the cleaning machines are in the modern engine shop. Shop owners who prioritize effective and efficient cleaning techniques will find success in a more streamlined process.
Unlike standard spray cabinet washers, immersion cleaning exposes all surfaces of the part, including blind holes and small crevices, to the cleaning solution.
More and more these days, shops are looking for better, easier and more sustainable ways to clean engine components and parts. Enter Cold Jet, a 30-year-old company that offers eco-friendly cleaning solutions to numerous industries including engine rebuilding, using dry ice blasting.
Engine building is a segment of the automotive industry that has always been ahead of the curve in media blasting, and no matter the engine shop, cleaning equipment is a common bond.
Like most equipment, what kind of tumbler and how many a shop needs depends on what a particular shop is looking to achieve.
Cleaning is a time consuming, expensive process for most rebuilders. According to Engine Builder’s most recent Machine Shop Market Profile, rebuilders say they spend more than 15 percent of their total production time in cleaning. Safer, less toxic methods continue to gain a foothold in today’s professional shops.
