Engineer Dean Swann operates the new Torrent high-pressure parts cleaner in our Service Centre
Engineers at Westin Drives aim to return repaired items in an excellent condition – and usually cleaner than when they arrived.
The thorough cleaning of mechanical parts to remove grease or carbon deposits prior to repair ensures effective and safe performance.
If a motor is not cleaned thoroughly, for example, a residue of carbon dust could cause internal sparking or a short circuit. So our deep cleaning also prolongs the life of repaired jobs.
Our previous method of scrubbing parts by hand was overtaken this week by investment in a Torrent high-pressure parts cleaner.
Components up to 50kg in weight are placed in the machine’s enclosure and pressure-sprayed with detergent by a protected operator. Parts up to 65×40×40 cm can be cleaned comfortably and accessibly.
Even the most heavily soiled items – from bearing caps and gear boxes to pump interiors and brush holders – emerge looking like new.
Workshop manager Steve Ormondroyd says: "For our customers, the new machine offers a quicker and more effective cleaning service."
