Rubber bung washing machines are suitable for washing rubber/latex stoppers for vials or bottles. These machines work on the principle of air fluidization without generating any particle. Bung washers are available in single and double basket design and can adjust the number and time of washes as per requirement.
Application of Bung Washing Machine
These washers can be used to wash 10-32mm rubber bungs. The output/productivity of machines depends on the technical specifications and can range from 5000 to 20000 bungs per cycle.
Working of Bung Washing Machine
The entire unit consists of outer container made of stainless steel with overflow through. Inner product holder is also made of stainless steel, that is actually a perforated basket. Further this particular basket is than put in the outer container, washing water flows from a centrally located pipe. Filtered compressed air is passed through specially designed pipe which generates a highly velocity flow pattern and fluidizes the rubber stoppers.
If required, water in the container can also be heated by an electric heater or with the help of a steam coil provided. After each wash, quick draining is possible with the help of a drain valve. All the contact parts of equipment are made out of stainless steel.
