Aerospace Parts Washers, Degreasers & FPI Equipment

Cleaning aerospace parts improves the efficiency of these CNC-machined components, so it’s essential to wash and degrease them regularly. Here at New England Sales, we offer comprehensive aerospace parts washing solutions to maintain critical CNC-machined jet engine components.

The Importance of Parts Washing for the Aerospace Industry

When CNC-machined aerospace components are covered in grease, dust and dirt, they are more likely to malfunction and experience premature wear. If these components fail to function efficiently, jet engine manufacturers may send these parts back to your facility, increasing your operating costs and decreasing customer satisfaction. You can experience smoother operations by including regular aviation parts washing in your quality control processes.

Parts Cleaning Applications for Aerospace

At New England Sales, we provide a range of aerospace vapor degreasing and parts-cleaning equipment. Our machines can handle any application, whether intricate or massive.

  • Wheels and brakes: Wheels must go through a thorough cleaning process prior to inspections, testing and repairs. We have advanced machinery including turntable cabinet washers and automated conveyor washers that clean wheels and brakes to ensure smooth takeoffs and landings.
  • Engines: There are many moving parts inside an engine. A buildup of grease and dirt on the engine components may hinder the jet engine’s operation. We provide high-velocity rotating machines to get into every small space. Cabinet and conveyor washers are used both in the manufacturing and inspection processes.
  • Landing gear: Landing gear must be thoroughly cleaned for manufacturing and maintenance. We have heavy-duty washers for large components, such as landing gear. Our machines have batch-cleaning capabilities to deliver your cleaned items faster.

Aviation Parts Cleaning Machines

We have specialized machinery ideal for washing and degreasing aerospace parts. Our machines can handle large components requiring high-powered cleaning and intricate parts that require a gentle hand.

  • Immersion washers: Our immersion washers are perfect for components with holes or passageways. They submerge each component, allowing our cleaning solution to get into those hard-to-reach spaces.
  • Turntable washers: Turntable washers have high-velocity spraying capabilities for demanding cleaning jobs. Our turntable washers are strong and able to withstand heavy loads.
  • Conveyor washer: Conveyor washers are ideal for fast-paced production facilities that need to keep their parts moving. These machines streamline your day-to-day operations and improve your productivity.
  • Rotary basket: Our rotary baskets are versatile machines, combining several systems such as spray, immersion and ultrasonic. These washers are suitable for objects that need to rotate without moving around in the machine.

Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) for Critical Aerospace Components

Fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) allows you to test CNC-machined aerospace components for defects and faults on nonporous surfaces. During the FPI process, you apply a fluorescent solution that penetrates the surface-breaking defects. After the penetration, you use specialized FPI equipment to remove the excess fluorescent liquid before initiating a thorough inspection with ultraviolet light.
