The RotaJet IW IBC Reconditioning System is made up of modular individual units that can be combined to meet your exact IBC needs, from washing, drying, pressure testing, and drying.
External washing station allows for manual positioning and washing of IBCs using a hand-held power wash spray wand. IBCs are simply rolled onto the washing platform, allowing 360° rotation while washing. This stage allows removal of all external labels and stubborn stains, and is particularly important for reconditioning companies.
Using a 2.8 kW pump, water is delivered to the outside of the IBC at 1740 psi, and collected in the basin beneath. A 130 gal recirculation tank and/or heating can be added if desired, allowing wash solution to be filtered and reused.
High pressure internal washer that removes contaminants from the inside of the IBC. Typically a full IBC line may include one or more RJ-IW units, one for wash (using caustic, detergent, or solvent) and another for fresh water rinse afterward.
The RJ-IW is designed for cleaning with water as standard, but can be piped with chemical addition if a secondary wash agent is desired within the same unit.
To ensure complete coverage, an electrically-driven, high pressure nozzle is used. The nozzle is fitted with pencil jets which rotate 360° on the X and Y axis, delivered at 2600 psi, with a flow rate of 3 gal/min. A 130 gal recirculation tank and/or heating can be added if desired, allowing wash solution to be filtered and reused.
A single head leak tester, mounted on a carbon steel frame.
Test sequence is initiated from a “START” button. System will automatically perform the leak test, displaying the results on the operator control panel. To increase efficiency, a traffic light system can be installed to provide quick reference on each container’s status for employees.
For accurate data logging, all tests are stored with a time stamp on a removable USB stick, found in the operator panel. The unit also features a “self test” mode which introduces a leak of a known size into a good container to verify proper operation.
High volume air blower which is lowered by the operator into the container via pneumatic cylinder. Once the drying cycle starts, the high volume blower transfers air into the container. To increase efficiency, the expelled air is channeled into a heat exchanger and reused. This recirculation allows the system to rapidly heat the air to 266° F, which dries the IBC in approximately 5 minutes.
To increase throughput, a second drying stage may be added.
In a standard arrangement, IBCs are manually moved along a roller track between stations. As a separate option, the roller track can be designed as an electrically-driven system where IBCs move from station to station automatically upon completion of each cycle.
