Air Brakes cleaning and remanufacture


Rotajet spray washers and parts washers are used for cleaning Air Brakes prior to remanufacture.

Air Brakes:-

Rotajet spray washing and top loading parts washers are used for washing Air brakes prior to remanufacturing. Due to the environment in which the Air brakes operate, they are typically heavily contaminated with road dirt, grease, oil and carbon deposits. Prior to remanufacture the whole assembly is typically washed in a single stage Rotajet spray washing machine, this will remove 99% of the surface contamination prior to stripping down. Once cleaned the assembly is fully stripped down and inspected, the sub components which can be reused are typically cleaned again, and the casings shot blasted and repainted. The components are then reassembled along with new components and sold as a remanufactured brake.

The Rotajet D series of spray washing machines will accommodate Air brakes, from buses, trucks, earth moving and from the rail industry.

The Rotajet front loading spray washers and top loading spray washers are normally operated at 65-70oC and use 2-3% of Rotajet 1-512 non alkaline spray washing detergent. The 1-512 not only degreases the components, but also contains a short term corrosion inhibitor. If long term corrosion protection is required we recommend the components are washed in Rotajet 4-200 at 2%.
