Pump Amp Meter
Panel mounted digital display tracks parts washer pump amp draw. Amp draw of the pumping system is a major indicator of the health of the parts washer system. Gradually increasing amp draw traces wear, indicating maintenance intervals. Sudden changes, such as drops indicate plugged flow passages or suction screen cleaning requirements. Digital system calibrated to actual parts washer amp draw requires no adjustment and no maintenance. Accurately calibrated induction coils display instantaneous pump amp draw. Duplex pump systems have a display for each pump. The amp meter provides a visual indication of the health of the heart of the parts washer and is useful for preventative maintenance
Turntable Load Capacity Upgrade
StingRay parts washers offer one of the highest wash load weight capacities in the industry. Higher rated capacities increase the work that can be performed in the parts washer. Upgraded Turntable capacity insures trouble free service and prevents downtime due to operators overloading the machine.
Turntable capacity is rated as downward thrust (weight) at the center of the turntable. Off center or tall loads can greatly reduce the capacity due to torque loading on the turntable requiring the rated capacity to be larger than the weight of the wash load.
High-Low Pressure Switch
Selectable output pressure of the pumping system allows cleaning delicate parts with low pressure and provides for high impact washing of difficult soils in the same machine. Panel mounted heavy-duty NEMA 12 selector switch with a choice of high or low pressure is easily operated. Duplex pumps only.
Convenient panel mounted industrial control for easy rotation of the turntable during parts loading. Control Panel-mounted Heavy Duty Industrial NEMA 12 Push-button Switch for reliability jogs turntable while door is open. Turntable Jog feature allows easy positioning and inspection of load after wash cycle.
Panel mounted industrial hour meter maintains parts washer usage allowing for scheduled maintenance based on operating hours. Electrically operated Hour Meter is easy to read and accurately measures operating hours.
Total operating time of parts washer is used as a trigger for preventative maintenance and service schedules such as external bearing lubrication and pump lubrication.
Stainless Steel Cabinet
All standard weldments of basic parts washer that are wetted during washing are made from 304 grade stainless steel or equivalent materials that are resistant to corrosion. All cabinet walls, structural items and weldments in contact with wash solution are stainless steel. Pump piping, PBM and turntable are stainless steel. Cabinet door frame, skin, internal reservoir cover and reservoir lids are stainless steel. Excluded are the pump, gas heat exchanger, turntable bearings, swivel, and optional equipment like the sludge scraper.
Extended Work Height Mild Steel
StingRay can easily change any standard size machine to a new height for cleaning taller or shorter parts. Increasing the height of the cleaning area in the parts washer cabinet allowing washing parts taller than the standard machine work height. Shortening the workheight increases power density and improves cleaning performance. Depending on overall wash chamber height, an increase to the heavy duty turntable option may be recommended.
Extended Work Height Stainless Steel
Standard work height stainless steel Parts Washer with increased or decreased working height to accommodate specific part sizes or special washing conditions. StingRay easily alters any standard size machine to a new height for cleaning taller or shorter parts. All cabinet components are stainless steel.
Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger
For use in Stainless Steel cabinet machines, gas heat exchanger or steam heat exchanger is fabricated from a non-hardening Chrome-Nickel AISI 304 grade stainless steel. The 304 Stainless Steel offers good corrosion resistance and heat resistance in alkaline wash environment.
Stainless Steel Pump
All components of the pumping system below the water line are stainless steel.
Heavy Duty Duplex Pump
The StingRay Heavy-Duty Upgraded pump system with larger shaft and bearing system is for abrasive and aggressive parts washing applications. The larger diameter shaft supports the pump impeller and prevents shaft deflection thereby reducing wear on critical components particularly in the throttle bushing and suction eye. These two areas are the key wear zones in a cantilever centrifugal pump. The larger main bearing handles heavier loading and increases life. The shaft diameter increase adds 186 % to the stiffness and the larger size bearing adds 162% to the L10 bearing life.
The StingRay maintenance kit provides the basic necessities required to use and operate the parts washer. The kit includes the following:
Pump Suction brush specifically designed to clean the pump suction screen. The brush makes it easy to keep your suction screen clean of debris that is a normal part of parts cleaning.
Touch-up paint – spray can of compatible paint matching the standard StingRay blue color of the machine exterior cabinet. Great for minor nicks and scratches to keep your machine looking great.
Grease Guns (2) – the grease guns are required maintenance items and are top quality units with a specific flow rate of grease for use with the parts washer. Keeping the grease guns near the machine helps to assure the proper maintenance is performed by machine users as it eliminates having to search for a grease gun with the proper grease.
Internal Bearing Grease – 9 tube case - StingRay OEM specified grease for bearings inside the wash chamber. Designed for resistance to alkaline detergents with a high melt point to resist washout.
External Bearing Grease – additional supply of high speed grease specified for all external bearing on parts washer.
