parts wash box

MFG Tray, (Molded Fiber Glass Tray Company) has a line of versatile utility, high-strength FRP wash boxes whose composite material construction costs approximately one-third the cost of traditional stainless steel wire baskets.  They also serve as a labor-saving solution-from secondary process cleaning to work-in-process storage.  By minimizing the “dumps” from machining and washing operations-to-container, the use of the composite wash box results in less labor and reduced part damage/scrap.  Another key end-use advantage of the durable FRP wash-box construction vs. metal wash baskets is safety.  The fact is, metal wash baskets frequently break and can leave dangerous wires poking out-which presents an employee safety hazard and could also damage sensitive parts. The benefits include:

  • Inherent fiberglass strength, rigidity, and durability
  • Ideal for cleaning, storing and inventorying machined parts
  • 1/3 the cost of stainless steel wire baskets
  • Operating temps to 250°F, intermittently to 300°F
  • Handles up to 150lb payload capacity
  • Safer alternative than metal wash boxes
  • Impervious to cutting oils, detergents, mild acids, and alkaline solutions
  • Easily cleaned using standard detergents

FRP Forming Process/Production Advantages:   

  • In-house machining of the wash-box bottom holes (1/4” or 3/8” diameter) and elongated side slots (2 ½” x 5/16”) –allows a variety of sizes for custom orders
  • Can be customized per client request to meet advanced corrosion specifications
  • Available in a variety of sizes
