Guyson's 'Kerry'  'Microclean' 5-stage ultrasonic aqueous cleaning system (heated ultrasonic pre-clean, heated ultrasonic clean rinse, rinse, twin warm air dry) suits a wide range of cleaning needs in aerospace, engineering, electronics and other sectors. Closed loop high purity deionised water rinsing provides organic and ionic cleanliness superior to MIL standards.

General Description

The five tank system including all ancillary equipment is mounted in a fully panelled floor standing box section framework. All panels are finished in light grey and are hinged or removable to allow access to all services, stainless steel top surround with lift  off lids to wet  stages and automatic  sliding lids to Stage 5.

The Microclean MF525 features include under surface jets and weir overflow to all wet stages. 

Guyson’s Kerry Microclean 525 is a five-stage ultrasonic cleaning system for use with aqueous chemistry:

STAGE 1 - ULTRASONIC PRE-CLEANING with heating, spray under immersion, and pumped filtration, 

STAGE 2 - ULTRASONIC CLEANING with heating, spray under immersion, and pumped filtration

STAGE 3 - CASCADE DEIONISED WATER RINSE with spray under immersion.

STAGE 4 - FINAL DEIONISED WATER RINSE with spray under immersion, heating and filtration.

STAGE 5 - TWIN RECIRCULATING WARM AIR DRY with economy timer; double capacity

The PLC-based electrical control system has a touch screen LCD panel showing actual and set point temperatures, pre-set cycle times, and any faults. An audible signal indicates completion of cycle.

Microclean systems may be operated manually or with the fully automatic Autotrans Mk4 robotic handling system, when the PLC based control system interfaces with the Autotrans to provide fully automatic operation. 

Technical process specification

Stages One and Two - Ultrasonic Clean 

Internal dimensions 415 x 525 x 350mm deep.
The ultrasonic cleaning tank is fabricated in AISI 316 stainless steel and incorporates the following features:
KST submersible ultrasonic transducer positioned to base of tank, radiating face  hard chrome plated.
Pulsatron Series 500/4 generators with frequency sweep and automatic tuning, operating frequency 38 kHz ±10%.
Drain overflow and fill pipework with associated valves and protective level control switches.
Electric heating with electronic temperature control and digital indication.
Pumping and filtration system, to include stainless steel pump, pre-filter and 20 inch replacement cartridge type filter element rated 10 micron.

Stage Three - Mains Water Rinse

Internal dimensions 415 x 525 x 350mm  deep.
The rinse tank is fabricated in AISI 316 stainless steel ahd incorporates the following features:
Under immersion sparge pipes connected to water inlet pipework with economy valve.
Drain overflow and fill pipework with associated control valves.

Stage Four - DI Water Rinse

Internal dimensions 415 x 525 x 350mm  deep.
The water rinse tank is fabricated in AISI 316 stainless steel and incorporates the following features:

Pumping and filtration system, to include recirculation pump, pre-filter and 10 inch replaceable cartridge type filter rated 1O micron. To allow closed loop recirculation through externally mounted HCC1O activated carbon and HDC1O mixed  bed resin cylinders.  
Electric heating with electronic temperature control and digital indication. Drain, overflow  and fill pipework with associated  control valves.

Stage Five - Hot Air Dry

Internal dimensions  830 x 525 x 350mm deep.
The drying chamber is fabricated in AISI 316 stainless steel and incorporates the following features:
Double basket capacity.
Sliding stainless steel lids with automatic open/close operation to interface with Autotrans 1/0 controls.
Electric heating elements positioned within the air outlet manifold and including  protective  temperature control.
Full width air inlets to two side walls of chamber, air outlets in base and connected to recirculation-blower.
Adjustable air exhaust to prevent moisture saturation. Digital temperature control and indication.

Air Extraction

Stages 1, 2 and 4 incorporate air extraction manifolds which are designed to remove water vapours. All extraction ducting terminates at the rear of plant and is arranged  for connection to client's fan and external ducting  services.

Microprocessor Control

The microprocessor electrical control system incorporates a membrane type panel with tactile control buttons and LCD diagnostic  panel.

 All control switches include LED function indication .

 LCD diagnostic panel indicates actual and set point temperatures, fault display and pre-set cycle times with audible cycle complete  signal.

MF525/5  Overall dimensions including Autotrans automation and load/unload stations 5450 x 2350 x 2400  mm high.

Autotrans MK4 Automation
Designed for fitment to Microclean MF 525/5 system and to include 5450mm horizontal transfer beam.


The transporter head includes linear guide rails and toothed belt  drive  on  vertical carriage with stainless steel pick-up arm  mounted  to  a  precision ground steel support rail at low level to the rear of the MF 525/5, the rail is extended to both ends to allow for  load/unload from and to the gravity fed roller conveyors..

Both the horizontal and vertical motors (type HD92C4-64T) incorporate electronic torque limiting for system and operator protection, direct  reading  servo motors provide maximum positional accuracy with automatic positional checking.

Maximum motor speeds are 17m/min vertical, 30m/min horizontal with adjustable  ramp rates.

For fully automatic operation including automatic load/unload of the work baskets the fitment of basket 'present' and 'unload' switches are included in the  gravity  load/unload  conveyors (Two 500 x 2100 x 900mm to  be positioned at 90 °to the front of the MF525/5) .

Maximum load capacity will be 30 kg and the lift/lower mechanism incorporates basket pick-up carrier fabricated in stainless steel with V block type location points.
