MCF 2800 Three tank machine

This machine will de-grease, de-paint, and de-rust steel components all in one loading process. 

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. 

The three tanks can be utilised together or in pairs by the programming facility and one tank has an upright pump for the ability to use strong caustic chemical for the removal of heavy rusting. 

This machine will also prove an effective tool for achieving a high level of cleanliness after the manufacturing process and can also be used for phosphating components before painting. 

The three stage process enables a vast array of applications to be achieved. 

The machine has a load capacity of 1000kg. 

This machine was originally rented by the Ministry of Defence on a full service rental for the stripping of multiple layers of paint and surface damage to military vehicle parts. The machine is in excellent condition as it was maintained and serviced every four weeks throughout its life by a full trained technician.. 
This machine was originally supplied at a cost of £98,000.00 + VAT
