Washing Machines | DWA
The Hinterkopf can washing machines (DWA) clean cans and bottles made of aluminium or steel in all well-established sizes. They fit seamlessly in the production line as an individual solution.
With standardised, pre-assembled and functionally tested components Hinterkopf configures your individual can washing machine, so that the planning phase and start of production take little time. The advanced management of the interfaces to preceding and following machines secures the production flow even at high speeds: 240 cans or up to 1200 battery shells per minute are a great performance!
Efficient cleaning in several steps
The cans or bottles pass five chambers in the DWA where they are cleaned two times and rinsed three times. Residues from degreasing can thus hardly penetrate into the washing area. You monitor and control precisely the automatic process on the touch screen, where all process data are collected.
Durable quality for low maintenance
Not only the performance but also the longevity are evidence of the Hinterkopf quality. We optimised the can washing machine for a long production life, less wear requires little maintenance. The maintenance interval for mechanical components is even several years. Solid height-adjustable belts as well as stainless steel containers, pipes and ovens are standard with a Hinterkopf DWA. The particularly stressed transport chain is protected by a newly developed special coating which requires less lubricant and extends the service life.
Cost analysis argues for Hinterkopf
Hinterkopf-quality pays off for our customers in any case, as a glance at the cost analysis reveals. With an assumed service life of the DWA of 25 years, the investment for the purchase is only 17 percent of the operating costs, the maintenance costs even less. Taking into account this long service life the energy and maintenance costs exceed the purchasing costs by far. Therefore, Hinterkopf sets high value on the use of efficient, energy-saving motors and needle valves with extremely fine dosing. They help minimising the water consumption.
