Drum Washer Cleans Brass Shell Casings

Rotary Drum Washer for Small Ammunition

A key corporation in the defense, aerospace, security and outdoor sport industries needed to clean 7.62mm brass shell casings in the manufacturing process. The system designed for this application was a rotary drum washer with a 24" diameter drum specifically for cleaning small parts in volume.

Parts come to the 3-stage drum washer from an annealing oven and are washed, rinsed and dried at a rate of 30-35 lbs. per minute.  The system outputs 26,000 shells per hour sending them to final machining. The drum has "scoops" to bring the fluids into the drum (there are no pumps). In the wet stages, the shells are fully immersed. The drum washer is all stainless steel.
