Image Description:
An equipment designed for cleaning small parts such as ball and roller bearings, gears, motor and generator parts, drills, milling cutters, and other tools has been produced by the Black & Decker Mfg. Co., Towson Heights, Baltimore. Md. The device consists of a cast iron pedestal at the top of which a bowl is mounted. This bowl is 13 inches in diameter, 12 inches deep, and has a fine-mesh brass screen supported at about 5 inches from the bottom. The housing of a plunger pump is cast integral with the bowl. The latter has a safety cover so arranged that it cannot be left open. The cover is lifted by means of a convenient handle that operates the pump each time the cover is raised. A gallon of gasoline, kerosene, or other desirable liquid cleanser is poured into the bowl of the machine and the operation of the pump forces a stream of this fluid toward the center of the bowl from one side. The part to be cleaned is held under the stream of cleansing fluid so that dirt and chips are washed from the part and deposited on the screen below, the fluid passing through the screen and returning to the sump to be used again.
