本発明は、袋状に形成された電池缶を洗浄する電池缶洗浄装置に関する。   The present invention relates to a battery can cleaning device for cleaning a battery can formed in a bag shape.

電池の外殻を形成する電池缶は、プレス加工によって袋状に成形される。電池缶は、表面に付着した油分や汚れを除去するために、洗浄される。洗浄において、電池缶は、多孔板或いは金網でできたバレル容器に多数まとめて入れられ、洗浄液が入った洗浄槽、防錆剤の入った防錆槽、水洗水の入った水洗槽にこのバレル容器ごと順に浸漬され、乾燥ボックスで熱風により乾燥される(例えば、特許文献1参照。)。バレル容器は、各槽及び乾燥ボックスの中で回転される。
特開平9−111485号公報(段落0010−0019、第1図)
The battery can that forms the outer shell of the battery is formed into a bag shape by pressing. The battery can is cleaned in order to remove oil and dirt adhering to the surface. In cleaning, many battery cans are put together in a barrel container made of perforated plate or wire mesh. Each container is immersed in order and dried with hot air in a drying box (see, for example, Patent Document 1). The barrel container is rotated in each tank and drying box.
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 9-111485 (paragraphs 0010-0019, FIG. 1)

しかしながら、電池缶は、バレル容器に多数まとめて入れた状態で洗浄されるため、洗浄中に互いが衝突し、傷が付く場合がある。また、引き上げられたバレル容器の中には電池缶が不揃いに納まっているため、袋状に形成された電池缶の中に洗浄液や防錆剤または水洗水が溜まった状態のものもある。洗浄液や防錆剤あるいは水洗水をそれぞれ次の槽に持ち込む量を極力少なくするために、バレル容器を回転させて排出することが考えられる。バレル容器を回転させると、中で重なり合った電池缶の山が崩れ、電池缶の中に溜まった液体の重みでさらに電池缶が傷付いたり、変形したりする場合もある。     However, since many battery cans are washed in a state where they are put together in a barrel container, they may collide with each other during the washing and may be damaged. In addition, since the battery cans are irregularly accommodated in the barrel container that has been pulled up, there are cases in which cleaning liquid, rust preventive agent, or flush water has accumulated in the battery can formed in a bag shape. In order to minimize the amount of the cleaning liquid, the rust inhibitor, or the washing water brought into the next tank, it is conceivable that the barrel container is rotated and discharged. When the barrel container is rotated, the piles of the battery cans that overlap each other collapse, and the battery cans may be further damaged or deformed by the weight of the liquid accumulated in the battery cans.

電池缶の外表面に傷が付くと、容器としての強度が低下してしまう。また、電池缶の開口部に傷が付いたり変形が加わったりすると、開口部を密閉する際に不具合が生じる可能性がある。   When the outer surface of the battery can is scratched, the strength as a container is lowered. In addition, if the opening of the battery can is scratched or deformed, a problem may occur when the opening is sealed.

そこで、本発明は、電池缶を互いに衝突させることなく洗浄することのできる電池缶洗浄装置を提供することを目的とする。   Then, an object of this invention is to provide the battery can washing | cleaning apparatus which can wash | clean a battery can, without making it collide with each other.

本発明に係る電池缶洗浄装置は、開口部を有した袋状に形成された電池缶を潜らせる洗浄液を貯留する洗浄槽と、洗浄槽に潜らせた電池缶に洗浄液を噴きかける仕上洗浄部と、仕上洗浄部で噴きかけられた洗浄液を除去する乾燥部と、電池缶を個々に離した状態で洗浄槽と仕上洗浄部と乾燥部とを通過させる搬送機構とを備える。   The battery can cleaning device according to the present invention includes a cleaning tank that stores a cleaning liquid that allows a battery can formed in a bag shape having an opening, and a finish cleaning section that sprays the cleaning liquid on the battery can that is immersed in the cleaning tank. And a drying unit that removes the cleaning liquid sprayed by the finish cleaning unit, and a transport mechanism that allows the cleaning tank, the finish cleaning unit, and the drying unit to pass through with the battery cans separated from each other.

または、本発明に係る電池缶洗浄装置は、開口部を有した袋状に形成された電池缶を潜らせる洗浄液を貯留する一次洗浄槽と、一次洗浄槽に供給する洗浄液を貯留して一次洗浄槽を経た電池缶を潜らせる二次洗浄槽と、一次洗浄槽の洗浄液を蒸留再生する再生機と、二次洗浄槽を経た電池缶に再生機で蒸留された洗浄液を噴きかける仕上洗浄部と、仕上洗浄部で噴きかけられた洗浄液を除去する乾燥部と、電池缶を個々に離した状態で一次洗浄槽と二次洗浄槽と仕上洗浄部と乾燥部とを通過させる搬送機構とを備える。   Alternatively, the battery can cleaning device according to the present invention stores a primary cleaning tank that stores a cleaning liquid that hides a battery can formed in a bag shape having an opening, and a primary cleaning tank that stores cleaning liquid supplied to the primary cleaning tank. A secondary cleaning tank that immerses the battery can that has passed through the tank; a regenerator that distills and regenerates the cleaning liquid in the primary cleaning tank; A drying unit that removes the cleaning liquid sprayed by the finishing cleaning unit, and a transport mechanism that allows the primary cleaning tank, the secondary cleaning tank, the finishing cleaning unit, and the drying unit to pass through the battery cans separately. .

また、電池缶を個別に離して搬送するために、搬送装置は、電池缶を個々に離した状態で収納するケースと、ケースが多数取り付けられて循環する無端状のチェーンとを備える。また、電池缶洗浄装置の前工程または後工程との連係を容易にするために、電池缶は、重力方向を横切る方向に開口部を向けた状態でケースに挿入及び排出する。また、装置を簡略化するために、乾燥後の電池缶は、エアーでケースから排出する。   In addition, in order to transport the battery cans separately, the transport device includes a case for storing the battery cans in a state of being separated from each other and an endless chain in which a large number of cases are attached and circulates. Further, in order to facilitate the linkage with the pre-process or the post-process of the battery can cleaning device, the battery can is inserted into and discharged from the case with the opening directed in a direction crossing the direction of gravity. Moreover, in order to simplify an apparatus, the battery can after drying is discharged | emitted from a case with air.

本発明に係る電池缶洗浄装置によれば、電池缶が個々に離された状態で前記洗浄槽と前記仕上洗浄部と前記乾燥部とを通過するので、互いに衝突することなく電池缶を洗浄させることができる。さらに、1つずつ個別に洗浄及び乾燥するので、バレル容器に多数まとめて入れて洗浄される場合に比べて、個々の洗浄斑が生じ難い。その結果、バレル容器でまとめて洗浄する場合にバレル容器内の全ての電池缶がある程度以上に洗浄されるために必要となる時間に対し、より短い時間で洗浄を終わらせることができ、作業工程の時間を短縮することができる。   According to the battery can cleaning device of the present invention, the battery cans are cleaned without colliding with each other because they pass through the cleaning tank, the finish cleaning unit, and the drying unit with the battery cans separated from each other. be able to. Furthermore, since washing and drying are performed individually one by one, individual washing spots are less likely to occur as compared to a case where many barrel containers are washed together. As a result, when all the battery cans in the barrel container are cleaned to a certain degree or more when cleaning them in a barrel container, the cleaning can be completed in a shorter time than the time required for cleaning. Can be shortened.

また、循環する無端状のチェーンに多数のケースを取り付けた搬送機構を備える電池缶洗浄装置によれば、連続して電池缶を洗浄することができる。また、重力方向を横切る方向に開口部を向けた状態で電池缶をケースに挿入する電池缶洗浄装置、または、重力方向を横切る方向に開口部を向けた状態で電池缶をケースから搬出する電池缶洗浄装置によれば、ハンドリングを単純な構造で行なうことができるとともに、前工程または後工程の自動化装置との連係が取りやすくなる。   Moreover, according to the battery can cleaning device provided with a transport mechanism in which a large number of cases are attached to a circulating endless chain, the battery can can be continuously cleaned. Also, a battery can cleaning device that inserts the battery can into the case with the opening facing in the direction crossing the gravity direction, or a battery that carries the battery can out of the case with the opening facing in the direction crossing the gravity direction According to the can cleaning apparatus, handling can be performed with a simple structure, and it is easy to link with the automation apparatus in the previous process or the subsequent process.

本発明に係る一実施形態の電池缶洗浄装置1について、図1から図6を参照して説明する。図1に示す電池缶洗浄装置1は、一次洗浄槽2と二次洗浄槽3と仕上洗浄部4と乾燥部5と搬送機構6と挿入部7と排出部8とを備える。電池缶洗浄装置1は、プレス成形によって開口部51aを有する箱型に形成された電池缶51を挿入部7から排出部8まで搬送する間に洗浄及び乾燥する。   A battery can cleaning device 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS. A battery can cleaning apparatus 1 shown in FIG. 1 includes a primary cleaning tank 2, a secondary cleaning tank 3, a finish cleaning unit 4, a drying unit 5, a transport mechanism 6, an insertion unit 7, and a discharge unit 8. The battery can cleaning apparatus 1 cleans and dries the battery can 51 formed into a box shape having an opening 51a by press molding while it is transported from the insertion section 7 to the discharge section 8.

一次洗浄槽2及び二次洗浄槽3には、プレス成形によって付着したプレスオイルや搬送途中で付着した粉塵を電池缶51から融離除去するために、電池缶51を潜らせる洗浄液Wがそれぞれ貯留されている。図2に示すように、一次洗浄槽2の上方には、シャワーノズル9が複数設けられている。電池缶51は、このシャワーノズル9によって一次洗浄槽2に浸漬される前に一次洗浄槽2からポンプで汲み上げた洗浄液Wが外側面及び内側面に満遍なく撒きかけられる。   In the primary cleaning tank 2 and the secondary cleaning tank 3, the cleaning liquid W that hides the battery can 51 is stored in order to separate and remove the press oil adhering to the press molding and dust adhering during the transfer from the battery can 51. Has been. As shown in FIG. 2, a plurality of shower nozzles 9 are provided above the primary cleaning tank 2. Before the battery can 51 is immersed in the primary cleaning tank 2 by the shower nozzle 9, the cleaning liquid W pumped from the primary cleaning tank 2 is sprayed evenly on the outer surface and the inner surface.

図1に示すように、一次洗浄槽2の液面2aは、二次洗浄槽3の液面3aよりも低く設定されている。一次洗浄槽2の洗浄液Wは、回収されて蒸留再生機Rで蒸留されることで、洗浄液Wの中に混ざったプレスオイルや粉塵などの不純物が取除かれる。蒸留再生された洗浄液Wは、仕上洗浄部4へ送られる。   As shown in FIG. 1, the liquid level 2 a of the primary cleaning tank 2 is set lower than the liquid level 3 a of the secondary cleaning tank 3. The cleaning liquid W in the primary cleaning tank 2 is recovered and distilled by the distillation regenerator R, so that impurities such as press oil and dust mixed in the cleaning liquid W are removed. The distilled and regenerated cleaning liquid W is sent to the finish cleaning unit 4.

また、図3に示すように、電池缶51は、一次洗浄槽2に入る直前において、開口部51aが袋状に閉じた側よりも高くなるようにやや傾けられた状態である。このようにすることによって、電池缶51を浸漬させるときに、中に空気を巻き込むことを防止する。   As shown in FIG. 3, immediately before entering the primary cleaning tank 2, the battery can 51 is in a state of being slightly inclined so that the opening 51a is higher than the bag-closed side. By doing in this way, when the battery can 51 is immersed, air is prevented from being caught therein.

二次洗浄槽3と一次洗浄槽2の間には、複数のノズル10が取り付けられており、二次洗浄槽3の洗浄液Wは、一次洗浄槽2の液面2aへの落差を利用して、一次洗浄槽2を出た電池缶51に撒きかけられる。仕上洗浄部4は、図4に示すように二次洗浄槽3を経た電池缶51に蒸留再生された洗浄液Wを噴きかける噴射ノズル11を有している。噴きかけられた洗浄液Wは、そのまま垂れて二次洗浄槽3に貯留される。このように、洗浄液Wは、仕上洗浄部4で使用された後、二次洗浄槽3に一旦貯留され、さらに二次洗浄槽3から一次洗浄槽2に供給される。そして、プレスオイルや粉塵などが混入して汚れた洗浄液Wは、蒸留再生機Rによって不純物が取除かれ再び仕上洗浄部4の噴射ノズル11から噴射される。   A plurality of nozzles 10 are attached between the secondary cleaning tank 3 and the primary cleaning tank 2, and the cleaning liquid W in the secondary cleaning tank 3 uses a drop to the liquid level 2 a of the primary cleaning tank 2. The battery can 51 that has left the primary cleaning tank 2 is sprinkled. As shown in FIG. 4, the finish cleaning unit 4 has an injection nozzle 11 that sprays the cleaning liquid W that has been regenerated by distillation onto the battery can 51 that has passed through the secondary cleaning tank 3. The sprayed cleaning liquid W is dripped as it is and stored in the secondary cleaning tank 3. As described above, the cleaning liquid W is temporarily stored in the secondary cleaning tank 3 after being used in the finish cleaning unit 4, and further supplied from the secondary cleaning tank 3 to the primary cleaning tank 2. Then, the cleaning liquid W contaminated with press oil or dust is removed from the impurities by the distillation regenerator R and is again sprayed from the spray nozzle 11 of the finish cleaning section 4.

乾燥部5は、電池缶51に乾燥空気を吹きかけるエアノズルを備えている。乾燥部5は、二次洗浄槽3の隣に配置されており、仕上洗浄部4を経た電池缶51に付着している洗浄液Wをこの電池缶51が通過する間に除去する。   The drying unit 5 includes an air nozzle that blows dry air onto the battery can 51. The drying unit 5 is disposed next to the secondary cleaning tank 3, and removes the cleaning liquid W adhering to the battery can 51 that has passed through the finishing cleaning unit 4 while the battery can 51 passes.

搬送機構6は、多数のケース12と無端状につながれたチェーン13とを備える。ケース12は、図5に示すように電池缶51を挿入することのできる大きさの開放端部12aを有しているとともに、その他の部分は、内部に挿入された電池缶51に洗浄液Wが十分にかかる程度にかつ電池缶51が脱落しない程度に開口している。ケース12は、挿入部7及び排出部8において、重力方向を横切る向きに開口部51aを向けた状態で電池缶51を挿入及び排出できる角度でチェーン13に取り付けられている。また、多数のケース12は、等間隔でチェーン13に取り付けられている。なお、図1において、ケース12は、実際に取り付けられる個数よりも少なく描かれている。また、ケース12の材質は、電池缶51を傷つけない硬さでかつ洗浄液Wに対する耐食性に優れたものを採用する。   The transport mechanism 6 includes a large number of cases 12 and a chain 13 connected endlessly. As shown in FIG. 5, the case 12 has an open end 12 a large enough to allow the battery can 51 to be inserted, and the other part has the cleaning liquid W in the battery can 51 inserted therein. The battery can 51 is opened to such an extent that the battery can 51 is sufficiently removed. The case 12 is attached to the chain 13 at an angle at which the battery can 51 can be inserted and discharged at the insertion portion 7 and the discharge portion 8 in a state where the opening 51a is directed in a direction crossing the direction of gravity. A number of cases 12 are attached to the chain 13 at equal intervals. In addition, in FIG. 1, the case 12 is drawn less than the number actually attached. The case 12 is made of a material that does not damage the battery can 51 and has excellent corrosion resistance against the cleaning liquid W.

チェーン13は、挿入部7で電池缶51が入れられた状態のケース12を一次洗浄槽2及び二次洗浄槽3に順に潜らせた後さらに乾燥部5を通過するように、上下方向に蛇行しており、排出部8から一次洗浄槽2と二次洗浄槽3と乾燥部5との下を通って挿入部7まで循環している。また、チェーン13の各折り返し位置には、それぞれスプロケット14が配置されている。複数あるスプロケット14のうちの1つまたは複数にチェーン13を循環させる駆動用のサーボモータが取り付けられている。チェーン13は、サーボモータとセンサとによって、各ケース12が挿入部7及び排出部8で一旦停止されるように制御されている。   The chain 13 meanders in the vertical direction so that the case 12 with the battery can 51 placed in the insertion portion 7 is sequentially hidden in the primary cleaning tank 2 and the secondary cleaning tank 3 and then passes through the drying section 5. It circulates from the discharge unit 8 to the insertion unit 7 through the primary cleaning tank 2, the secondary cleaning tank 3, and the drying unit 5. A sprocket 14 is disposed at each turn-back position of the chain 13. A servo motor for driving that circulates the chain 13 is attached to one or a plurality of sprockets 14. The chain 13 is controlled so that each case 12 is temporarily stopped at the insertion portion 7 and the discharge portion 8 by a servo motor and a sensor.

搬送機構6によってケース12の開放端部12aが横に向く区間、一次洗浄槽2の中及び二次洗浄槽3の中で開放端部12aが上に向く区間において、電池缶51がケース12の開放端部12aから突出することを防止するために、バンド15がケース12の開放端部12aを横切るように配置されている。   In the section in which the open end 12a of the case 12 faces sideways by the transport mechanism 6, the section in which the open end 12a faces upward in the primary cleaning tank 2 and the secondary cleaning tank 3, the battery can 51 is attached to the case 12. In order to prevent protrusion from the open end 12a, the band 15 is disposed across the open end 12a of the case 12.

挿入部7は、図5に示すように、コンベア16で前の工程から搬送されてきた電池缶51をケース12の前で停止させるガイド17と、コンベア16上の電池缶51をケース12に押し込むシリンダ18を備えている。搬送機構6とシリンダ18とコンベア16とは、互いに同期が取られている。シリンダ18は、ケース12が停止してから電池缶51をケース12に向かって押し出す。コンベア16は、シリンダ18が電池缶51を押し出す前に停止し、シリンダ18が元の位置に戻ると動き出す。なお、電池缶51は、コンベア16の上方に配置されて電池缶51をケース12の開放端部12aに向けて掻き込むフィンのついたベルトで挿入されてもよい。   As illustrated in FIG. 5, the insertion unit 7 pushes the battery can 51 on the conveyor 16 into the case 12 and the guide 17 that stops the battery can 51 that has been conveyed from the previous process on the conveyor 16 in front of the case 12. A cylinder 18 is provided. The transport mechanism 6, the cylinder 18 and the conveyor 16 are synchronized with each other. The cylinder 18 pushes the battery can 51 toward the case 12 after the case 12 stops. The conveyor 16 stops before the cylinder 18 pushes out the battery can 51, and starts moving when the cylinder 18 returns to the original position. The battery can 51 may be inserted by a belt with fins that is disposed above the conveyor 16 and scrapes the battery can 51 toward the open end 12a of the case 12.

排出部8は、図6に示すように、ケース12に向かって噴出口19aが設けられた排出ノズル19を備える。ケース12の開放端部12a側には、ケース12から排出された電池缶51を次の工程に搬送するコンベア20が配置されている。排出ノズル19は、コンベア20で搬送可能な位置まで電池缶51を排出する十分な勢いのエアーを噴出する。エアーは、常に噴射されていても良いし、搬送機構6と同期させて、ケース12がコンベア20と並ぶ位置に停止した場合に噴射されるようにしても良い。   As shown in FIG. 6, the discharge unit 8 includes a discharge nozzle 19 provided with a jet port 19 a toward the case 12. On the open end 12a side of the case 12, a conveyor 20 that conveys the battery can 51 discharged from the case 12 to the next step is disposed. The discharge nozzle 19 blows out air with sufficient momentum to discharge the battery can 51 to a position where it can be conveyed by the conveyor 20. The air may be constantly jetted, or may be jetted when the case 12 stops at a position aligned with the conveyor 20 in synchronization with the transport mechanism 6.

次に、以上のように構成された電池缶洗浄装置1が電池缶51を洗浄及び乾燥する動作について説明する。電池缶洗浄装置1は、プレス加工機から搬送されてきた電池缶51をシリンダ18でケース12に1つずつ、図5に示すように開口部51aを先に向けて、挿入する。最初のスプロケット14でチェーン13が折返されることにともない、ケース12に挿入された電池缶51は、開口部51aを下に向けながら反転され、一次洗浄槽2に向かって下降する。電池缶51は、一次洗浄槽2の手前の下降途中で図2に示すように洗浄液Wをシャワーノズル9によって内側面及び外側面にかけられる。   Next, the operation of cleaning and drying the battery can 51 by the battery can cleaning device 1 configured as described above will be described. The battery can cleaning apparatus 1 inserts the battery cans 51 conveyed from the press machine into the case 12 one by one with the cylinder 18 with the opening 51a facing forward as shown in FIG. As the chain 13 is turned back by the first sprocket 14, the battery can 51 inserted into the case 12 is inverted while the opening 51 a faces downward, and descends toward the primary cleaning tank 2. As shown in FIG. 2, the battery can 51 is applied to the inner and outer surfaces of the battery can 51 by the shower nozzle 9 as shown in FIG.

図3に示すように電池缶51は、塞がれている側から沈み始めるように、やや傾いた状態で洗浄液Wに浸漬される。一次洗浄槽2内に配置されたスプロケット14でチェーン13が上向に反転されることにともない、開口部51aを下に向けながら反転される。一次洗浄槽2から引き上げられた電池缶51は、上に向かって移動する途中で、二次洗浄槽3から導かれてノズル10から流出する洗浄液Wで内側面及び外側面が濯がれる。一次洗浄槽2の上方に配置されてチェーン13を横に向けるスプロケット14と、二次洗浄槽3の上方に配置されてチェーン13を二次洗浄槽3に向かう下方に変向するスプロケット14との間で、電池缶51は、開口部51aを下に向けて起立させた状態で搬送される。これにより、電池缶51は、内部に一次洗浄槽2の洗浄液Wが残留しないように排出される。   As shown in FIG. 3, the battery can 51 is immersed in the cleaning liquid W in a slightly inclined state so as to start to sink from the closed side. As the chain 13 is inverted upward by the sprocket 14 disposed in the primary cleaning tank 2, the chain is inverted with the opening 51a facing downward. As the battery can 51 pulled up from the primary cleaning tank 2 moves upward, the inner surface and the outer surface are rinsed with the cleaning liquid W guided from the secondary cleaning tank 3 and flowing out from the nozzle 10. A sprocket 14 disposed above the primary cleaning tank 2 and facing the chain 13 sideways, and a sprocket 14 disposed above the secondary cleaning tank 3 and turning the chain 13 downward toward the secondary cleaning tank 3 In the meantime, the battery can 51 is conveyed in a state where the opening 51a is erected downward. Thereby, the battery can 51 is discharged so that the cleaning liquid W of the primary cleaning tank 2 does not remain inside.

一次洗浄槽2に潜らされたときと同様に、電池缶51は、二次洗浄槽3に潜らされ、二次洗浄槽3の中に配置されたスプロケット14でチェーン13が折返されることにともない、二次洗浄槽3から引き上げられる。二次洗浄槽3から引き上げられた電池缶51は、図4に示すように内側面及び外側面を噴射ノズル11から噴射される蒸留再生後の洗浄液Wで洗い流される。二次洗浄槽3の上方に配置されてチェーン13を乾燥部5に向けて横行させるスプロケット14と、乾燥部5の上方に配置されてチェーン13を乾燥部5に向けて下降させるスプロケット14との間において、電池缶51は、再び開口部51aを下に向けた起立状態で搬送される。これにより、電池缶51は、内部に残留する洗浄液Wが排出される。   Similarly to the case where the battery can 51 is submerged in the primary cleaning tank 2, the battery can 51 is submerged in the secondary cleaning tank 3, and the chain 13 is folded back by the sprocket 14 disposed in the secondary cleaning tank 3. The secondary cleaning tank 3 is pulled up. As shown in FIG. 4, the battery can 51 pulled up from the secondary cleaning tank 3 is washed away with the cleaning liquid W after distillation regeneration sprayed from the spray nozzle 11 on the inner and outer surfaces. A sprocket 14 disposed above the secondary cleaning tank 3 and traversing the chain 13 toward the drying unit 5, and a sprocket 14 disposed above the drying unit 5 and descending the chain 13 toward the drying unit 5. In the meantime, the battery can 51 is conveyed again in an upright state with the opening 51a facing downward. Thereby, the cleaning liquid W remaining inside the battery can 51 is discharged.

電池缶51は、乾燥部5の中に設けられたスプロケット14でチェーン13が折返されることにともなって、開口部51aを下に向けながら反転される。電池缶51は、乾燥部5を通過する間に、エアノズルで乾燥空気を吹きかけられて内側面及び外側面に残っている洗浄液Wが除去される。なお、乾燥空気は、ヒータで加熱すると洗浄液Wをより早く揮発(蒸発)させて除去することができる。乾燥部5の上方に配置されたスプロケット14でチェーン13が折返されることにともない、乾燥部5を経た電池缶51は、反転される。   The battery can 51 is inverted while the opening portion 51a faces downward as the chain 13 is folded back by the sprocket 14 provided in the drying unit 5. While the battery can 51 passes through the drying unit 5, dry air is blown by an air nozzle to remove the cleaning liquid W remaining on the inner surface and the outer surface. The dry air can be removed by volatilizing (evaporating) the cleaning liquid W more quickly when heated by a heater. As the chain 13 is folded back by the sprocket 14 disposed above the drying unit 5, the battery can 51 that has passed through the drying unit 5 is inverted.

そして、図6に示すように、電池缶51は、排出ノズル19から噴射されるエアーによって、次の工程に向けて配置されたコンベア20の上に排出される。電池缶51が排出された後のケース12は、乾燥部5、二次洗浄槽3、一次洗浄槽2の下を通って、挿入部7へ戻る。   And as shown in FIG. 6, the battery can 51 is discharged | emitted on the conveyor 20 arrange | positioned toward the next process with the air injected from the discharge nozzle 19. As shown in FIG. The case 12 after the battery can 51 is discharged passes under the drying unit 5, the secondary cleaning tank 3, and the primary cleaning tank 2 and returns to the insertion unit 7.

以上のように、電池缶洗浄装置1は、電池缶51を1つずつケース12に入れて搬送しながら洗浄及び乾燥させるので、電池缶51同士が衝突して互いに傷つくことを防止することができる。また、この電池缶洗浄装置1は、個別に洗浄及び乾燥させるので、電池缶51毎に洗浄斑が生じ難い。さらに、1つずつ連続的に電池缶51を洗浄処理するので、前工程及び後工程との連係を取りやすい。したがって、この電池缶洗浄装置1は、無人運転される生産ラインに組み込むことに適している。また、電池缶洗浄装置1は、蒸留再生機Rを備えて洗浄液Wを循環利用するので、新たに洗浄液Wを補充する量を少なくすることができる。   As described above, since the battery can cleaning device 1 puts the battery cans 51 into the case 12 one by one and cleans and dries them while being transported, the battery cans 51 can be prevented from colliding with each other and being damaged. . In addition, since the battery can cleaning device 1 is cleaned and dried individually, cleaning spots hardly occur in each battery can 51. Furthermore, since the battery cans 51 are continuously washed one by one, it is easy to link the previous process and the subsequent process. Therefore, this battery can cleaning device 1 is suitable for incorporation in a production line that is operated unattended. Moreover, since the battery can cleaning apparatus 1 includes the distillation regenerator R and circulates and uses the cleaning liquid W, the amount of the cleaning liquid W to be newly replenished can be reduced.

本発明に係る電池缶洗浄装置は、適した形状のケースに取り替えることで、洗浄を必要とする傷の付きやすい加工製品に対し、個別に洗浄をすることのできる洗浄装置として利用することができる。   The battery can cleaning device according to the present invention can be used as a cleaning device that can individually clean a scratched processed product that requires cleaning by replacing it with a case having a suitable shape. .
