White Spirit Flushing Rig

Industry: Aerospace

This project involved the detailed design and construction of a White Spirit Flushing Rig. The complete system was supplied by Hedley Hydraulics.

White Spirit Flushing RigThe product replaces a current test rig that was not suitable for use.  We designed an ergonomic rig that would allow safe use of the machine whilst using white spirit which has a low flash point. ATEX classification electrics to facilitate safe use and operation.

The brief from the customer was for the test rig to be;

  • A safe system
  • Able to reuse White Spirit and clean fluid effectively
  • Easy to load and unload the product
  • A multi-product specification testing
  • Able to optimise machine operation for 10 hours working days
  • Compliant with HSE laws
  • CE Marked product

A challenge we were able to overcome was reclaiming the white sprit from air source during the final flushing procedure.
