rotumbler rotating basket

RoTumbler ultrasonic rotating basket for precision cleaning in wash, rinse, or dry cycle

The best way to precision clean small parts that tend to nest, cup fluids, or have fine blind holes

Available as an accessory on all Crest Optimum Consoles, this unique rotational system is customized for a variety of applications. Its soft tumbling action slowly rotates parts in the wash, rinse, and dry stations for outstanding precision cleaning in what would be otherwise nearly impossible scenarios.

RoTumbler baskets are made of high quality lightweight perforated stainless steel or stainless steel wire mesh, and are designed for easy loading. If you need to rotate different parts simultaneously, RoTumbler is also available in a compartmentalized design. Larger components or components susceptible to damage can be fixtures and then inserted into a RoTumbler rotating basket as well.

Each Optimum Console tank contains a rotational drive mechanism that allows for multiple in-line rotations without the need for individually attached basket drive motors. These durable friction drive wheels allow for consistently smooth rotating action without gears, which are susceptible to damage over time. And a torque-limiting clutch protects the entire drive system. Gear-driven and custom-shaped drums are also available!

With the RoTumbler basket configuration, you can process rack components or flat baskets in the same system with no tooling change, allowing you the utmost flexibility for all your precision cleaning needs.
