  • Technical data

Metalbud NOWICKI MPA-1200 high capacity automatic industrial container washers minimize consumption of media yet still maintain high wash quality.

MPA-1200 tunnel washer is designed to wash containers of maximum dimensions 27.5” x 23.5” x 15.5” (L x W x H) of efficiency, 1200 containers an hour. It provides effective washing and disinfection process with very low media consumption. Equipped with extremely efficient container blow-off system. The container washer is easily adaptable for use with an automatic warehouse of containers.

The 3000 container / hour capacity MP-3000 washer  is equipped with  two, independently controlled washer lines under one housing. The structure of the device facilitates expansion of the line with different modules, which, depending on the expectations of the target recipient, provide better wash capacity and/or less water after the air blow-off process.

The MPA-1200 and MP-3000 industrial machinery feature a new, self-aligning container clamping system which adjusts to the container without operator interference.
