Efficient pallet and case handling can consist of Case/Tray Denesters, Case/Shell Washers, Case/Shell Dryers, Case Inverters, Pallet Washers and other Pallet/Case/Tray Handling equipment. GC Evans manufactures rugged and reliable versions of each.

Case/Tray Denesters

  • 300 Series stainless construction throughout
  • Multi-Chain system allows for accurate separation of cases/trays at even the highest speeds
  • High strength modular plastic chain eliminates the problems associated with that of complicated timing belt systems
  • Loading design system allows for the removal of deformed or damaged cases thus eliminating most jam situations
  • All PLC based control
  • Less than 5 min. tool-less changeover from size to size
  • Custom pre-wired and pre-tested machine-mounted control package. PLUS optional large remote operator’s station
  • Optional pallet conveyor with slide table attachments

Case/Shell Washers

  • Stainless steel 304 welded construction. Tanks and side panels are 11 ga
  • Set up with a dual stainless steel roller chain conveying system or wheel drive/drag chain configuration
  • Drain valves on each tank
  • Vent collar provided to exhaust vapors from the wash module
  • Blower/Dryer modules to provide higher level of water removal
  • Case inverting systems
  • Stainless steel pumps
  • Additional stainless steel strainers
  • Dual tunnel container washers to provide more capacity and less additional cost
  • Alternate heating sources such as external heat exchangers, tank heaters, steam injection or Evans hot water heaters
  • Removable side panels on both sides of the washer allow complete access to internal components
  • Side tanks have dual removable ss filter screens allowing cleaning while washer is in operation
  • Stainless steel nozzles, designed to provide thorough washing, are located the entire length of the machine
  • Clean out openings are located in each tank
  • High pressure centrifugal pumps deliver approximately 80 psi to the wash section
  • Rinse pumps deliver approximately a 20 psi rinse pressure
  • Adjustable side and/or top guide rails permit washer to handle a variety of container sizes
  • Pressure gauges and thermometers monitor pump performance and wash temperatures
  • Tanks equipped with automated float/fill water level control
  • Complete controls package

Case/Shell Dryers

Blow-off modules:

  • Systems design based on customer desired degree of dryness
  • Utilizes heated air 40 deg. f above ambient
  • Heat package includes:
  • Includes all fluid contact area stainless steel exchanger
  • Pre-piped steam line components
  • Condensate return
  • Necessary temperature controls
  • Includs all fluid contact area stainless steel exchanger
  • Pre-piped steam line components
  • Condensate return
  • Necessary temperature controls

Filtration options:

  • Manual dual cartridge stainless mesh filters as a standard
  • In-line stainless steel filters with solenoid operated blow-down
  • Automatic filtration boxes with debris removal

Case/Shell Inverters

  • Horizontal or In-line
  • S style or 2-C style

Pallet Washers

  • Sized to effectively wash, rinse and dry pallets based on given pallet size, orientation and expected speeds of 2 to 10 pallets per minute
  • Pre-wired machine mounted Nema 4X stainless steel control panel
  • Stainless steel internal piping, spray nozzles and interior manifolds
  • Heated wash and rinse sections with independent temperature control via direct steam injection
  • Washer is of heavy gauge stainless steel tank construction
  • Powerful blower system to remove excess water from pallets
  • Manual flush valves for debris removal from the internal pipe work
  • Automatic water counter flow to “self-clean” and provide water changeover automatically
  • Removable side panels for access to the interior of the washer on both sides of the unit
  • The continuous strainer on the pallet washer is an automated process that keeps the water free from solids. It also increases the longevity of the pumps. In addition the strainer has a removable, easy to clean tray
  • High pressure centrifugal blowers raise the air temperature 40 degrees above ambient temperature. They have super high pressure to get the pallets dry
  • The pallet washer has large access doors to the washer and blower section for easy maintenance access
  • Air knife mounting brackets allow for angle adjustments to achieve the best surface contact with pallet. This provides you with optimal drying capabilities

Pallet/Case/Tray Handling

  • Pallet stackers
  • Pallet De-stackers
  • Elevators/Lowerators
  • Pallet Conveyor
  • Pallet staging conveyor
  • Pallet rotating tables
