Washer body totally stainless steel made (AISI
304, with thickness 3 mm), external and internal frame, components
are made of specific materials to avoid rust; all parts of washer
with high quality level to guarantee ruggedness, reliability and
quality processing as time goes by.
Automatic machine, all components are synchronized;
machine checks through PLC with software that optimizes consumptions
and productivity according to glass sizes; with self-diagnosis
system, that alerts if there is a trouble and shows precise position
of breakage, so troubleshooting is easy and fast.
Control panel, with key strip, has display that
visualizes a lot of function: machine state (working progress,
working speed, glass thickness), trouble-shooting and if it's
set, manual operation of the whole system; with manual operation,
it is possible to insulate all processing components (brushes,
pumps, transport rollers, air knives and fan) starting and stopping
separately; working speed is adjustable through inverter and potentiometer,
digital display visualizes it.
Electrical and electronic compents are SCHNEIDER-TELEMECANIQUE.
Pre-washing, with high pressure jets (through
two spraying bars and specific nozzles), take off from glass surface
a quantity of dirty before brushes action.
Washing station with one/two/three pairs of nylon
cylindrical brushes (Ø 130 mm standard version / Ø
150 mm with motorized opening system AM500*); each pair of brushes
with two spraying bars and specific nozzels; brushes shafts made
of stainless steel, bristles bearings are gauged with internal core
shaft, to have a perfect rotation moving and avoid fast wear; cleaning
operation of spraying bars is easy through quick assembling/disassembling
Two/Three stainless steel tanks with pumps, filters
(with cartridge for inlet water and of stainless steel for sucked
water), recircle system and overflow valve; one tank for pre-washing
(and for first couple of brushes), one for washing (second and third
couples of brushes) and one for rinsing; pre-washing and washing
stations (each couple of brushes) are divided by specific stainless
steel frames to avoid water contamination and mixing from one tank
to the other; resistance to heat water on first tank on first tank;
tanks are positioned under washer body, tanks with wheels to facilitate
emptying and cleaning.
Drying system with high pressure electric-fan and
air knives with "Z" shape, to guarantee a perfect drying;
fan mounted above washer body and supported through aerial painted
iron structure; ventilation box soundproofed with sound absorbent
material to reduce noisiness (under 80 dB); fan with interception
valve, that stops air flow if glass is not passing through drying
section, and with replaceable filter, with automatic system that
controls and informs if filter is blocked (showing it in the control
Motorized opening system up to 500 mm AM500 * (OPTION)
on the top of the washer for the maintenance and cleaning operation;
the top section of the washer (that has individual rolls, brushes,
air knives and motors) move up or down through motor, chain and
screw system; this device keeps the same distance between brush
and glass panel to reduce wear and tear of brushes, caused by different
glass thickness working; top and down transport rollers are driven
by two motoreducers and are syncronized through inverter, that adjusts
working speed of them; each brush has individual motor.
Springs mechanical adjusting system on transport
rolls according to the glass thickness that is worked, to have a
better quality processing expecially with low-e. glass; further
this device, if washer has the motorized opening sytem up to 500
mm (AM500*), is very useful to increase production: you can work,
without any change, glass with different thickness of 5 mm; for
example adjusting the opening of machine up to 10 mm you can work
glass from 10 to 15 mm, machine absorbs different glass thickness,
without set all the times the machine with the thickness that you're
Low-E. (soft coated) glass treatment on top side
of glass, through soft brushes on top (bristles with diameter of
nylon of 0,15 mm), harder brushes on bottom (bristles with diameter
of nylon of 0,30 mm), with specific software that stops transport
rolls drive, brushes rotation, pumps water filling if glass stops
to not damage the Low-E. glass.
Possibility to reverse rolls drive (working sense)
and to reverse rotation of the brushes (very useful for small glass
Top rollers, driven by individual motor, in the
course of washing operation, keep glass always in the right position,
and avoid that panel moves because of brushes rotation and high
pressure air flow.
Transport rolls covered by special uncuttable
non marking rubber, that is vulcanised and rectified on rolls,
to avoid that water and humidity come inside the shaft of the
roll; besides rust is avoided because rolls shafts have stainless
Entry and exit supporting conveyor (1500/2000 mm),
painted iron frame, with stainless steel frames where glass sheets
pass; glass is moved by motorized rolls driven by washer, through
chain and motoreducer, with inverter to adjust speed.
Machine conforms to CE norms and directives, with
specific protections, guards and security devices.
Inlet water must to be provided with conductivity
less than 10 µS, with bigger values we don't guarantee that
washer works good, and we suggest a demineralizer plant (reverse
osmosis) to have a perfect cleaning of the final product.
