Basket Handling Elevator (BHE)

Vertical Lift

Basket handling systems on vapor degreasers are becoming essential operating equipment and standard operating procedure for many companies. The ability to load parts into a basket and then have the automated system process parts while allowing the operator to perform other functions reduces cleaning processing errors while increasing productivity and efficiency. The BHE is an excellent addition to any vapor degreasing system.

  • NESHAP Compliant Features
    Minimizes worker vapor exposure and reduces contact with the solvent.
  • Enhanced Solvent Containment
    Horizontal slide lid can be closed when parts are being processed for increased solvent containment.
  • Labor Cost Savings
    Reduces or eliminates operator processing time.
  • Processing Consistency
    Ensures that parts are processed consistently to your specification;
  • 20 Part Cleaning Recipes
    Touch-Screen PLC allows you to enter, save & easily select between 20 different part recipes.
  • Minimized Solvent Losses
    PLC controlled movement combined with sufficient time in the refrigerated flash-off zone while processing with the lid closed greatly reduces solvent losses compared to manual processing.
  • Automated Operation
    Reduces operator error and increases productivity.
  • Process Basket with Lid Closed
    Ensures solvent containment through entire cycle.
