Acme-Fab Builds Radiator Washer
To Combat High Rejection Rates

Wednesday, July 3, 2002
Acme-Fab, Cincinnati, OH, has designed and built a high-volume radiator washer to resolve problems a customer had with high rejection rates. In designing the washer, Acme-Fab employed concepts to improve cleaning and drying, including high-velocity blow-off units. These concepts reduce cross-contamination between process stages and remove excess water from the radiator’s dense coil, thus ensuring complete drying capability. To ease maintenance, the washer design features full-width interlocking access doors, and because heat for wash, rinse and dry stages is provided by natural gas, the washer offers cost-efficient operation.
