MCF 2400 Two tank machine.

Metalas (UK) Ltd is part of a group of European companies called Metalas Cleaning Systems (MCS) who specialise in industrial surface treatment cleaning machines. 

Cleaning by hand is a very time consuming and costly method. Fully automatic and entirely closed, MCS cleaning machines offer an efficient and money saving alternative which is, moreover, environmentally friendly

The surprisingly effective and thorough cleaning is obtained by the combination of high velocity spray jets, a large volume of heated detergent water and bouncing whirlpool action which cleans the dirtiest parts in 5-15 minutes and all within a totally enclosed system. The machines clean everything not only metals but plastics etc

In this multi tank system. the machine you can either pre-clean, de-carbonize, (wash), rinse and/or rust inhibit components. This system is ideal for the aero industries where numerous cleaning stages are required. Also for surface treatment by iron phosphating of components prior to painting. 

Metalas machines are used in a wide range of alternative sectors such as: 

•Automotive industry 
•Defence industry 
•Transport industry 
•Medical / pharmaceutical industry 
•Food industry 
•Chemical and petrochemical industry 
•Graphic industry 
•Electronic industry 
•Metallurgical industry 
•Automotive repair and rebuild industry 

Originally commissioned to remove multiple heavy layer of paint from alloy components.

The machine can also degrease components effectively before de painting. It could also be utilised for excellent degreasing results after the manufacturing processes in many engineering operations.

Aftermarket customers could also achieve excellent results with the two stage facility. Each tank can be run independently of the other, use a wide range of chemicals and the machine also has an impressive load capacity of 1000kg. 

The machine is fitted with E pipes that can be swung in if smaller components are being cleaned for a more effective and faster cleaning result. 

Working at excellent pressure and flow rates, this machine is capable of cleaning a variety of components quickly and efficiently without the use of costly labour. 

This two stage metalas machine was been maintained every six weeks by trained specialist technicians. 

The machine was originally rented by the Ministry of Defence on a full service rental and is in excellent condition.
