At parts2clean, Dürr Ecoclean presents solvent and water-based cleaning plus service solutions
Solutions as diverse as the tasks in industrial part cleaning
Filderstadt / Germany, April 2016 – A broad-based portfolio addressing virtually any cleaning task is presented by Dürr Ecoclean at this year's parts2clean in Stuttgart. The range of solutions shown extends from aqueous and solvent based cleaning through ultrafine cleaning to tailor-made after-sales concepts. Moreover, there will again be 'live' exhibits of different cleaning systems – including the new EcoCCompact – at the company's booth (D35, H5).
The demands on part cleanliness, and hence on the cleaning system employed, vary with the degree of completion, the downstream process and the specific industry. For such highly diverse cleaning tasks ranging from prewash or coarse cleaning through intermediate to fine and ultrafine cleaning, Dürr Ecoclean will be presenting matching solutions at this year's parts2clean from 31 May - 2 June. Each of these solutions helps users make their part cleaning operations more reliable, cost-efficient and sustainable.
With its EcoCCompact, Dürr Ecoclean has optimized the successful predecessor model from the prior Compact 80C/P series. Operating under a full vacuum and equipped with two flood tanks as standard, this machine can clean and conserve parts with modified alcohols and non-halogenated hydrocarbons. Experience and innovative technology from other Dürr Ecoclean systems have likewise found their way into the efficient EcoCCompact. The unit thus provides enhanced flexibility for different cleaning tasks. Versatile options open up a broad range of uses, from rapid degreasing to demanding cleaning operations in compliance with exacting cleanliness specifications. In addition, this model is perfectly adaptable to specific user requirements, e.g., from prewash through intermediate to final cleaning. To assist with such challenges, a third flood tank can be retrofitted. The machine's design focus lies on a targeted reduction in per-unit costs combined with maximum cleaning efficiency. Moreover, the new EcoCCompact shines with its particularly space-saving modular design, easy operation, visual appeal and attractive price/performance ratio.
The extensive line-up of part cleaning systems relying on aqueous media will be represented by EcoCWave and EcoCCube models at the trade fair booth. The latter constitutes an ideal entry-level solution for users considering aqueous cleaning. This is due, on the one hand, to its small footprint of just 2100 x 1630 x 1855 mm (length x width x height) and low weight. The machine can thus be integrated easily and in minimum time into any manufacturing environment, apart from providing flexibility in use. On the other hand, it attains its operating temperature quickly and energy-efficiently due to the optimized size of the two standard flood tanks. The EcoCWave is built to clean even large quantities of parts at a rapid pace and with high reliability, in processes ranging from coarse to ultrafine cleaning. It owes this capability in part to the use of powerful pumps and large diameter piping, which ensure quick filling and draining of the work chamber. The round, upright tanks are flow-optimized to prevent chips and foreign matter from accumulating inside. This design translates into a higher cleaning quality and longer cleaning fluid life.
In ultrafine cleaning tasks – e.g., in the optical industry, medical equipment manufacturing and other segments – the ultrasound cleaning systems marketed by UCM AG, a Dürr Ecoclean Group company, excel with a number of technical features which enable them to meet even exceptionally demanding cleaning standards repeatably and efficiently.
The equipment manufacturer's trade fair offering is rounded out by the "service island". Here, experienced service staff advises customers on after-sales matters, tailor-made service concepts to boost plant availability, equipment revamps and adaptations designed to meet altered requirements.
