About the machine

The Gemini VW pan washer is a vessel washing machine and will play an essential role within the facility to process  large contaminated vessels at the Belzona facility.

This machine successfully cleans using a combination of two elements:

  1. Mechanical actions – a series of rotating brushes agitates the contaminants and help remove the solvents from the surface. Different brush qualities are available (e.g. Stainless steel, PE.) and are shaped depending on the type of product and vessel configuration.
  2. Liquid cleaning additive– this helps break down the contaminants which helps speed along the process

These features together allow this system to provide a thorough and accurate clean while being incredibly energy efficient in just as little as 5 minutes.  For ease of use, the machine is fully automated and is fitted within a HMI panel in which cleaning parameters can be saved for other products being cleaned.
