Description

This Special Sonar 500/6 all stainless steel aqueous cleaning system (heated ultrasonic clean, rinse, rinse, warm air dry) suits a wide range of cleaning needs in aerospace, precision, electronics and other industries. Closed loop high purity deionised water rinsing provides organic and ionic cleanliness superior to MIL standard. 

Sonar 500/6 Ultrasonic Cleaning Plant.

The multistage aqueous Sonar 500/6 Ultrasonic Cleaning Cell, has an multi programme robotic handling system, which achieves precision cleaning results to the most demanding and exacting of cleaning standards.

Details:

Closed loop high purity water system with Mettler Toledo conductivity monitoring.

Ultrasonic tank is driven by 12 bar transducers bomded and mechanically fixed the the base and side walls, operating at a frequency of 30kHz. Each bar transducer comprises of 4 x piezo electric elements operating in a radial mode.

The transducers are driven by 2 x FMG 600 generator modules, delivering 1200 watts of power. The generators feature frequency sweep technology for a more uniform and powerful cavitation 

The 316 stainless steel insulated tanks are supported in an acoustically isolated 304 stainless steel framework and cladded in 1.5mm satin finished panels. Each station has a full stainless steel closing lid.

Extracted stations are powered by a Filtermist stainless steel FX4000 condensing fan allowing the air to be returned into the room saving on heat energy.

Separate free standing panel mounted siemens LOGO 240rc OBA5 PLC operating system for setting the machines variables and parameters of temperatures, fluid filtration and recirculation with the operation of the machine in either automatic or manual mode.

The Automated Comport 31 handling System controls the pick and place procedure of the process and has a handling capacity of 30kg. 

The robot can process a single basket or fixture from start to finish or operate with multiple loads to utilise each station. The handling system is loaded via the feed and exit conveyors.

Automation of the process reduces running costs with aqueous systems by assuring consistent, repeatable quality, reducing reject rates, and increasing throughput.

A pump and filter system is fitted to tanks 1 & 2 to help prolong the life of the cleaning solution utilising carbon and cotton filters. Tanks 3 & 4 deionising filter system of both mains water in and continuous filtration of tank via a weir and pump system with bypass valve for filling tank 2.  Transfer pump for filling of tank 1 with used liquid from tank 2.

Technical Comport 31 Specification:

Load capacity 30 kg
Vertical speed3.6 & 5.6 m/min 
Horizontal speed* 6.7 m/min
