Overview

The PROCECO TYPHOON®-AWW aircraft wheel cleaning system is designed to clean up to 30 aircraft wheel hubs of any size in an 8-hour shift (1 wheel every 16 minutes). This unique parts washer complies with environmental regulations and uses the latest aqueous, solvent-free, cleaning technology to remove grease, rubber residues, dirt, and brake dust from wheel hubs prior to their inspection or overhaul.

The standard model uses recirculating, hot alkaline aqueous solution sprayed onto the wheel at high pressure to remove oil, grease, and dirt. At the same time, the rotating brush scrubs the external wheel surface to remove accumulated rubber on the bead seat area. The wheel is then rinsed with fresh water and blow-off dried.

Based on our experience, mechanical scrubbing is the most effective method for removing embedded rubber residues without the application of solvents. To achieve similar results utilizing only water pressure, extensive pressure above 300psi would be required, resulting in more system maintenance and a shorter life span for system components.
