PETRO-CLEAN® washer is designed for the use with non-halogenated hydrocarbons
and is featured and equipped to be classified type A1 (machines
for flammable liquids not generating flammable atmosphere) according
to the European safety standard EN12921 part 3 for washing
machines using flammable liquids.
PETRO-CLEAN® is an automatic,
three stage washer for wash-rinse and blow-off operations at medium-high
productivity in the industrial processes where a high level of
cleanness is required.
Typical applications are the cleaning after lapping or grinding of high precision components like parts of bearings, vacuum pumps, hydraulic components, gears and many others prior assembling, storing or packing.
uses the AGI-DIP® air-operated
functional principle to provide, in one cabin, the immersion cleaning
with vertical agitation, with or without ultrasonic energy, the
spray rinse with pure solvent and the blow-off of solvent from
surfaces. The full cycle is controlled by PLC according to the
preset process times.
is equipped with vertical door and loading platform for easy load/unload
operation and maximum of safety. The automatic cycle is here below
process time depends on the type of contaminant to be removed, characteristics
of the liquid used, required cleanliness. However, typical
applications after machining require 4/5 minutes corresponding to
an output of 12-15 baskets per hour. Higher performances both in
terms of cleaning and throughput can be achieved using ultrasounds
and/or heating the liquid.
operator loads the platform with workpieces and pushes the START
control for automatic process.
platform with workpieces descends into the liquid and starts
a vertical dunking movement.
the end of the time set the platform rises at the rinse level
and starts a vertical dunking movement through the jet. Workpieces
are sprayed with clean liquid.
the pump stops, the platform rises at the upper level where
an air knife removes the excess of liquid from the workpieces.
washer can be configured with separate tanks, filters and distiller
and can be used with the drier PETROL-DRY®.
