Mixing Pan Washers - Brush System

Mixing pan washers fitted with brushes are the ideal way of decontaminating vessels that are heavily contaminated with paints and inks, including viscous products. Once the mixing vessel is located approximately.

Gemini VW Pan Washers

The Gemini VW series of pan washers are suitable for washing a wide range of open topped vessels as well as 200L drums. These machines are utilised by the surface coating industry across the world to reliably clean coatings from mixing vessels.

Once the vessel is in approximately the right position, the vessel is locked and covered to ensure complete safety of the operators during use. Once the interlocks are engaged the wash cycle is initiated through a two-handed operation.

The vessel is washed through use of a recirculated solvent as well as the physical impingement of the rotating brushes. The brushes can be supplied with different qualities (e.g. Stainless Steel or PE) depending on the type of contamination present.

Once the cycle is completed, the vessel is tilted to facilitate drainage and then the fumes are extracted from the vessel prior to the container being released.

Gemini Techniek BV is a leading colour dispensing and washing specialist based in Haaksbergen, Netherlands. With other 30 years’ experience, their brand is internationally recognised because of their engineered solutions to pressing industrial problems. In addition to the machinery showcased here, Gemini are talented is the manufacture of bespoke machinery and are equipped to manufacture such machines suitable for ATEX environments.

The variety of mixing pans available correlate to the variety in the surface coating industry itself. As such we offer three different sizes of washers to cover the full spectrum of mixing pans.

GemiClean VW-S

  • Vessel Ø from 600 – 1.050 mm. Vessel height up to 1.550 mm.

GemiClean VW-M

  • Vessel Ø from 800 – 1.450 mm. Vessel height up to 1.550 mm. 

GemiClean VW-L

  • Vessel Ø from 950 – 1.750 mm. Vessel height up to 1.550 mm.

After the recirculating wash time 15-30 seconds is typically. That means consumption of 3.33-10 litre. fresh cleaning liquid per vessel. This is based on typically applications and could be either more or less deepening the type and level of contamination. 

The HMI allows the cycle times of the wash and rinse to programmed and stored, for individual cleaning requirements. 

The time that a mixing pan washer takes to complete a cycle is entirely dependent on the volume and composition of the contamination present. If the contamination is easy to clean, such as with water-based paints and inks, the cycle times will range between 3 and 5 minutes with a 10 second rinse. For harder to clean contaminants, such as epoxies and glues, cycle times will range up to 15 minutes with a rinse time of up-to 30 seconds.

Each machine is fitted with two drives, one for lowering the brushes into pan (0.5kW) and the second for driving the bush rotation itself (3kW). The total use of electricity is 3.5kW.

Each machine is designed to be as simple as possible to install and only utilises standard tools. It is important to make sure that the designated area is clean and free of debris, level and flat as well as removing any obstacles.

Rotajet engineers typically install in under three days with services being connected to your machine by either your in-house engineering team or external third parties.

All machines in this range are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet all requirements set out in the ATEX directive. As these machines are manufactured in the Netherlands each machine will be supplied CE marked with an EC declaration.

As standard these machines are offered with a 12-month warranty excl. wear and tear parts. We can give an additional 24 months of parts manufactured by ourselves.
