Commercial Manufacturing builds many types of washers including flood washers, brush washers, belt washers, and vibratory washers. Two factors that strongly influence the decision on the type of washer are the volume of product to be washed and whether the product floats or sinks. Within those parameters it is desirable to provide product soak time and agitation as means to obtain the cleanest possible result.
