The Model 1100 from Peterson Wash & Blast Systems cleans large or small parts by submersion in agitating, high-temperature water. The 48- × 108-inch agitating hot tank has a load capacity of 1,100 gal and can handle as much as 4,500 lbs of parts. It is constructed of stainless steel and offers a variety of options, including canister filtration, oil skimmers and electric heat instead of gas. Suited mostly for aftermarket rebuilding of pumps, engines and other processing equipment, it can also be used in the production facility as well.
