The cleaning machine works on
the same principal as a rock tumbler. It has two parallel bars
running horizontally that act as a "cradle" for the cleaning
The machine is designed for rugged
durability and minimal maintenance. The entire machine is constructed of
quality heavy duty components. The drive bar is constructed of 3/4"
stainless steel bar is sleeved in vinyl tubing. The unit is encased
in nonconductive, oil resistant rubber liner, which corrects misalignment
while reducing noise and vibration. The idler is a 1 3/8"
conveyor roller sleeved in vinyl tubing. This machine should provide
many years of tough service.
The machine is available with or without a
motor package. The motor package includes a new motor (one or two
speed), an adjustable mounting channel for belt tension, an on/off toggle
switch, v-belt, pulleys and the electrical cord. The standard motor
HP, 1725 RPM, which can handle 10-12 canisters. The two-speed
package also contains a second set of pulleys and a jack-shaft assembly
that sets between the motor and the machine giving the two-speed
capability. The one-speed (fast : 65 - 85 RPM) is for round
glass. The additional second speed (slow : 20 - 35 RPM) must be used
to safely clean any other shapes (square, oval, rectangle, paneled, etc.)
The machine is available in two models:
1) Small - has a maximum
capacity of any combination of canister sizes that add to not more than 13
(i.e. 3-4") (1-3", 1-4", 1-5") (2-4", 1-5")
2) Large - has a maximum capacity of any
combination of canister sizes that add to not more than 25 (i.e.
6-4") (2-6", 3-4") (2-5", 2-4", 2-3") etc.
Both of which can be enlarged to meet your needs by
adding more units (or modules), utilizing back or side kits. These
modules can turn at different speeds while running simultaneously attached
to only one motor.
