The Beringer Jet Cleaner is a unique vacuum pyrolysis cleaning system that removes most plastics, polymers and rubber compounds from jigs, fixtures, moulds and tooling. Operating manual with machine.

Benefits of this system include:

  • Safe* Minimal part handling.
  • No combustion* Minimises environmental impact.
  • Energy-saving operation* Significant labour savings over other methods.
  • Efficient* gentle cleaning extends metal product life.


A cleaning device must simply, economically and safely remove materials such as thermoplastics, thermosets and rubbers from extrusion tooling parts. For years unsatisfactory techniques such as blow torches, hot plates, hand working and scraping have been used. These methods all consume time, result in poor operator morale and often damage expensive tooling by spot annealing or just plain mechanical abuse.

The Beringer Jet Cleaner is the only machine of its kind developed to handle the cleaning of extrusion tooling and other plastics processing hardware. Other commercial cleaning systems such as aluminium oxide beds (fluidized beds), salt baths and hot air ovens are available, but their basic operation consists of burning off the polymer rather than removing it.


All Beringer Jet Cleaners utilise a revolutionary vacuum pyrolysis system designed to clean plastic residue from metal parts unlike any other method of cleaning. It is completely safe, highly efficient and designed for minimal environmental impact. Some of the cleaning applications, although not all, are:

  • All types of dies
  • Injection molding nozzles
  • Blow molding heads
  • Pleated screen filter media
  • Breaker plates
  • Screen packs
  • Spinnerettes
  • Extruder screws
  • Polymer melt pumps
  • Sintered stainless steel
  • Salvaging of precious filter media metals
  • Salvaging of encapsulated component metal parts

Beringer’s unique "vacuum“ method allows many complicated shapes to be cleaned without prior disassembly, such as blown film dies. Plus the unit can remove most polymers such as:

  • Styrene
  • Acetal
  • Vinyl
  • Acrylonitrite
  • ABS
  • Nylon
  • Acrylics
  • Polyethylene
  • Cellulose
  • Polypropylene
  • Acetate
  • Vinyl Foam
  • Bulyrate
  • Thermosets
  • Polycarbonate


The Beringer Jet Cleaner utilises heat and vacuum to remove the polymer from the parts. The major portion of the polymer charge is melted and trapped. The remaining polymer is vaporized and appropriately collected in a secondary trap. The Beringer Jet Cleaner features an automatic cycle. The operator simply loads the unit, secures the door and starts the cycle. Based upon a timer setting, the unit proceeds through the cleaning cycle and at the end, automatically depressurises and shuts down.

Cycle times depend upon the amount of steel and polymer charge. Most applications involve cleaning cycle times from 60 to 90 minutes.


  • Capable of removing a large cross section of polymeric materials.
  • Fast cleaning cycles.
  • Simplicity of operation.
  • Reliable and maintenance-free operation.
  • Cleaned part long term integrity.
  • Operator safety.
  • Very low emission levels without the use of afterburners.
  • Minimum energy consumption.
  • Saves labour.


Cleaning Chamber:  Fully insulated; designed to contain the parts tray, calrod heaters and control thermocouple. The heating chamber door is sealed by means of a high heat resistant O-ring and quick acting clamp. Chamber internals are fabricated from stainless steel.

Traps:  Attached to, the cleaning chamber. Fabricated from cast aluminium. Feature quick open flange covers and easily removable stainless steel collection pans.

Water-Vapor Separator:  Receives the vacuum pump exhaust. The separator serves to route the water to drain and vapours to the atmosphere (The vapours are discharged through a stove pipe run to the atmosphere). It is often recommended that a vent fan be used in the vapour exhaust run.

Vacuum Pump:  Direct motor coupled. It is supplied pre-plumbed to the heating chamber with exhaust
plumbed directly to the water vapour separator. The motor and all electrical components are prewired to the machine junction box. The pump operates on a water ring principle

Instrumentation and Control Panel: Includes temperature control instruments, vacuum monitoring gauge, cycle timer and start/stop buttons. All controls 24 VDC prewired to junction box supplied.

Internal dimensions - Ø400mm x 600mm  (17" dia. by 24") TBC
