Washing Chamber

This is the central part of the machine where the work takes place. The components to be washed are held in baskets and all the washing rinsing and drying takes place in this area. At the bottom there are several liquid entry points, also entry points for the vapours produced by the mini boiler. Situated at the top of the wash chamber there are several high pressure solvent spray bars that ensure cleaning if the components are not swivelled or rotated. There is a variable speed motor controlling the basket movement and everything in turn is controlled by the p.c.

Drying Cycle

The drying phase of the operation is performed by creating a vacuum inside the wash chamber. The vacuum pump removes the air and any solvent particles from the chamber to set up the optimal drying environment.

Ancillary Equipment

There is a refrigerator (R407C) and a 'still' for regenerating solvent, this is done by removing any impurities which have mixed in with the solvent during the cleaning process. The solvent recovery also consists of a condenser unit, a separator, a decanter and a water thermocouple alarm.

There is an active carbon depurator device, a 'fines' filter and the ultrasonic generator.

Includes External Chiller - TAE EVO 051

A self contained air cooled package chiller has a cooling capacity of 14kW at 7ºC (20kW @ 15cwlt) chilled water leaving the temperature at an ambient of 27ºC. Suitable for a wide range of solution and water cooling applications including cooling of anodising plating applications, injection moulding, food, dairy, laser cutting and air conditioning to name but a few.

Comprehensive control panel incorporating a microprocessor based digital temperature controller with fault diagnostics.

Why use Perchloroethylene?

The versatility of Perchloroethylene makes it compatible with almost any metal, especially those that are more susceptible to oxidation such as aluminium, stainless steel, magnesium, zinc and some other alloys.

A chlorinated chemical compound, Perchloroethylene is considered one of the most effective solvents especially as it has progressed over the years. Able to be recovered for a more economical process, it can now be a safe and emission free chemical whilst still maintaining its low boiling point and good drying properties.
