Water Submerged Parts Cooling

Water cooling conveyors are an excellent way to cool thick-walled parts as they are being transferred to another conveyor or work station. Customized, flat-to-incline conveyors and water holding tanks provide a soft landing and maximum cooling. Units are available in a wide choice of widths and lengths.

A wide choice of options allow water cooling conveyors to be customized to suit specific application needs. This Submersible Conveyor, used in conjunction with a robot, has an elevated floor stand that raises it to meet the robot release height. Heavy duty castors allow it to be moved easily within the plant.

Standard Features:

  • Conveyor and water tank are fabricated from 12-gauge, #304 stainless steel with 16-gauge slide beds
  • Conveyor bearings have cast stainless steel housings
  • V-guided, FDA approved, white PVC belt with 1.5" high flexible cleats on 18" centers. Includes stainless steel belt lacing.
  • Cleats are provided with water drain holes
  • A ground fault interrupter is included for safe operation (Customer must provide ground fault protection for 220V or three-phase units)
  • Side rails lapped over conveyor belt
  • 15' power cord with ground fault interrupter plug
  • Pre-wired, ready-to-run
  • Control wiring contained in liquid-tight conduit and connectors
  • 110/60/1 C-faced drive package
  • Units under 10' length shipped fully assembled
  • Water holding tank may include optional cooling coils

How to Order:

  • Send EMI one complete shot of the part(s) and/or runner(s) to be dropped into the water tank/conveyor. Include details on cycle time and how long the “shot” needs to be submersed to achieve sufficient cooling and what water temperature is required.
  • Supply a Press Dimensions Form pdf and Conveyor Specification Form pdf indicating length and width of conveyor and discharge height required.
  • EMI will recommend a conveyor model and provide a quotation.

    Cooling the Water Temperature

    For parts that need maximum cooling, heat exchangers can be mounted to the sides of water bath conveyors to lower the temperature of the water in the water tank.

    Water Spray Cooling

    This wash tank conveyor application below is used to spray parts with a 90% water & 10% lubricant solution as they move along the stainless steel wire mesh belt instead of immersing them. The solution collected in the tank is drained away and may be re-used. The system features four spray nozzles fed by a flexible tubing from a manifold system. The ambient air fan blows any droplets after parts without completely drying them.

    Cooling Floating Parts

    Submersible conveyor are available with a cover with a cylinder activated, hinged door at the infeed end. Upon a signal, by a robot (or other device), the infeed door opens, parts are allowed to enter the water, then the door closes, holding the parts under water while the in-tank conveyor moves them to the inclined section of the conveyor. The door re-opens for the next parts.

    Deep Water Baths

    This 36 inch deep Wash Tank Conveyor is used to cool parts by immersing them in water. A stainless steel hopper keeps parts contained. White PVC belting with 1.5" cleats have .25" holes to allow drainage.
