Barrel Washing Machine Manufacturer

Douglas Machines' barrel, drum and garbage can washers are designed to wash, rinse and sanitize barrels, drums and refuse containers, one at a time.

  • Each barrel, drum and garbage can washer features a recirculating detergent wash tank and a separate, fresh water sanitizing rinse tank.
  • Wash water is pumped through rotating or fixed spray arms fitted with high velocity stainless steel V jets designed to cut and remove stubborn soils.
  • Wash cycles are selected from a short, medium or long sequence (4, 6 or 8 minutes) depending on soil conditions.
  • Each wash cycle is followed by a 30 second hot water, sanitizing rinse.
  • The rinse water is routed back into the wash tank for reuse and to help freshen it.
  • Filters collect debris and keep the nozzles from clogging.
  • Electric, gas or steam booster heaters maintain proper operating temperatures.
  • Available with several options, including a steam extraction fan to vacate the steam before the door is opened, a protruding spray arm for bunged hole barrels and assorted wash racks for lids, buckets and utensils.
