Article | Industrial parts washing equipment – Why use it?

At NCH Asia, we offer a water-based parts washing system designed with safety in mind – Torrent System. Read more about our parts washing solution.

Industrial parts washing equipment is used in a variety of manufacturing processes to remove contaminants such as the following:

  • Dirt
  • Oil
  • Grime
  • Carbon
  • Paint and ink
  • Corrosion
  • Metal chips
  • Food

The removal of contaminants is a vital step in many manufacturing operations to ensure that quality standards are met. Cleaning by hand is time consuming, will not scale and often will not deliver the same effect. As a result, good parts washing equipment is an investment for businesses across a number of sectors. Without it, operations are compromised or would cease to exist at scale.


  • Automotive maintenance shops – garages and workshops will use industrial parts washing equipment, usually for degreasing purposes. Common industrial parts washing equipment used in the automotive sector includes spray washing equipment and floor standing parts washers.
  • Food processing plants – it’s important that production process equipment used as part of a food processing operation is washed regularly in order to meet important food hygiene standards.
  • Meat processing plants – clean facilities will work towards eliminating potential hazards during a product lifecycle.
  • Bakeries – the operational efficiency of large and small scale bakeries often depends on high quality parts washing solutions. A range of items will need to be washed such as trays and oven racks.
  • Printers – the printing industry relies on great parts washing solutions. Without clean equipment, high quality printing at scale is unachievable.


It should be stressed that safe parts washing is important for a number of reasons (such as avoiding injury to staff or damage to the environment). When installing a parts washing solution at your business, it is vital that the following safety issues are considered:

  • Staff exposure to harmful chemicals should be avoided – precautions should be put in place to prevent the skin absorbing aggressive cleaning solutions (such as personal protective equipment)
  • Noxious fumes should also be eliminated as well as potential fire hazards

An industrial parts washing solution is an investment. As a result, the following should also be considered: 

  • Will the new equipment result in an economical operation?
  • Will it reduce labor costs (faster cleaning)?
  • Will the need for secondary cleaning reduce?
  • Are you able to determine and minimize the environmental impact of the parts washing solution? 

Answering the above questions will work towards finding your ideal parts washing solution.


Manufacturing is on the rise. As a result, the parts washing equipment industry has mirrored this growth.  Without efficient industrial parts washing equipment, organizations are unable to keep up with demand and scale accordingly.

It’s important that organizations are innovating when designing industrial parts washing equipment for the future. At NCH Asia, we strive to deliver parts washing solutions to meet the individual needs of your business.
