Sunnyday is currently deploying our automated parts washer systems to our clients
In the most simple terms, the Sunnyday APWS is a huge airtight dishwasher. The APWS sprays hot solvents at high pressure across the equipment inside, removing ink and adhesives. After everything is clean, the solvent is evaporated off the parts so they are dry and ready to use.
Unlike manual parts washing, running the APWS is only a part time job. The worker loads the parts onto the APWS cart, rolls the cart into the washer, hits the start button, and goes back to work.
The most important part of the APWS system is the solvent recovery system. This automated distillery cleans the used solvent and recycles it to the APWS clean solvent reservoir. Instead of generating thousands of gallons of waste solvent, the APWS produces a very small amount of very concentrated waste that goes to the recycler. The whole system is airtight, so nobody has to wear a respirator, you don’t have to spend money conditioning make up air, and it’s environmentally friendly.
The cost of an APWS varies according to the size of the shop, but labor and solvent savings repay the capital investment in under a year. After that, the ongoing savings translate directly to your bottom line.
