Dual Tanks & Rinse Station

Client:
Precision parts manufacturer – produces intricate components from all manner of metals & engineering plastics.
Requirements:
Remove all traces of machine oils & swarf.
Solution:
Two separate 68 kHz ultrasonic tanks, each filled with different cleaning solutions to cater for different substrates. Rinse station with overhead spray attachment.
General Description: Full stainless steel construction; adjustable feet (not pictured); bench tops have splash backs and ‘wet edges’ (to minimize spillage onto floor).
Dimensions:
4,400mm wide x 620mm deep x 900mm bench height (1,100mm overall height)
Features:
Tanks can be operated in either Manual or Auto (timed sonic & filtration cycles) modes.
Both sonic tanks are heated and fully insulated.
Temperature is controlled by digital temperature controllers.
Tanks have ‘Auto-fill’ feature, ensuring optimum operational levels are maintained.
Neither Sonics nor heaters will function if correct levels are not present.
Tanks have filtered reticulation systems with separate oil and flotsam catchment reservoirs.
The unit incorporates a 7-day timer for each tank enabling the setting of daily Heater start and stop times; a very useful time saving feature ensuring tanks are at operating temperature at the beginning of each work day.

Stainless steel lids; parts baskets

Ultrasonic Cleaning Tank and Rinse Tank Combination

 

Client:
Aerospace – aircraft servicing
Requirements:
Clean components with high levels of contamination
Solution:
Heated 38 kHz ultrasonic tank and rinse tank workstation
General Description:
Full stainless steel construction; adjustable feet; bench top has splash back
Dimensions:
2,070mm wide x 730mm deep x 950mm bench height (1,150mm overall height)
Features:
Tank can be operated in either Manual or Auto (timed sonic & filtration cycles) modes.
Tank is heated and fully insulated. Temperature is controlled by an analogue temperature controller.
Tank has ‘Auto-fill’ feature, ensuring optimum operational levels are maintained. Neither Sonics nor heater will function if correct levels are not present.
Tank has filtered reticulation system with separate oil and flotsam catchment reservoir. Due to heavy contamination load, 2 x 20” SS filters were used. Filtered cleaning solution is returned to the main tank via a surface sparger. Returning solution pushes floating contaminants into the catchment reservoir during the ‘Pump’ cycle.
The unit incorporates a 7-day timer enabling the setting of daily Heater start and stop times; a very useful time saving feature ensuring tank is at operating temperature at the beginning of each work day.
Add-ons:
Stainless steel, insulated, hinged, lift-off lid; Part baskets

Multi Stage Systems

Client:
Semiconductor and Electronic component manufacturer
Requirements:
Clean various solid state components & circuit boards
Solution:
Heated 68 kHz ultrasonic cleaning tank, acid etch tank, rinse tank and drying oven complete with overhead materials handling system.
General Description:
Full stainless steel construction; adjustable feet; individual tanks are separated by’ wet edges’ to minimize cross contamination between tanks and to minimize spillage onto floor.
Dimensions:
3,600mm wide x 750mm deep x 1000mm bench height
Features:
Ultrasonic tank can be operated in either Manual or Auto (timed sonic & filtration cycles) modes.
Sonic, acid etch and rinse tanks are heated and fully insulated. Temperatures are controlled by digital temperature controllers as is temperature in drying oven.
Tank has ‘Auto-fill’ feature, ensuring optimum operational levels are maintained. Neither Sonics nor heaters will function if correct liquid levels are not present.
Sonic tank has filtered reticulation system with separate oil and flotsam catchment reservoir. Filtered cleaning solution is returned to the main tank via a surface sparger. Returning solution pushes floating contaminants into the catchment reservoir during the ‘Pump’ cycle in the sonic tank.
The unit incorporates a 7-day timer enabling the setting of daily Heater start and stop times in the three wet tanks; a very useful time saving feature ensuring tank is at operating temperature at the beginning of each work day.
Using the control pendant, the overhead materials handling system is designed to convey the laden parts baskets between the loading platform, each of the three process tanks and the drying oven.

Large Capacity Process Tanks

Client:
Provider of wide range of products and services for the marine and energy markets
Requirements:
To clean heat exchangers, large diesel engine components, oil coalescing filters, etc
Solution:
Heated 35 kHz ultrasonic cleaning tank
General Description:
Full stainless steel construction – Tank in 3mm 316 grade SS, outer
panelling in1.5mm 304 grade SS; hydraulically operated lid; separate
enclosure for ultrasonic generators and electricals; bi-directional
filtration system; all mounted on fully galvanized TFB skid.
Dimensions:
Total tank working capacity is 2,000 litres; the unit has a foot print of 2,600mm x 1,800mm and stands approximately 2,000mm high
Features:
Ultrasonic tank can be operated in either Manual or Auto (timed sonic & filtration cycles) modes.
Sonic tank is heated and fully insulated. Temperature is controlled by an analoguel temperature controller.
Tank has ‘Auto-fill’ feature, ensuring optimum operational levels are maintained. Neither Sonics nor heaters will function if correct liquid levels are not present.
Sonic tank has filtered bi-directional reticulation system with separate oil and flotsam catchment reservoirs. Filtered cleaning solution is returned to the main tank via a sparger. Returning solution pushes floating contaminants into the catchment reservoirs during the ‘Filter O/Flow’cycle; the main tank solution can be filtered in between cleaning cycles and whilst heating.
The unit incorporates a 7-day timer enabling the setting of dailyHeater start and stop times, a very useful time saving feature ensuring tank is at operating temperature at the beginning of each work day.

Ultrasonics & Rinse Workstation

Client:
Electric motor rebuilding & repair
Requirements:
To clean armatures, bearing assemblies & completeelectric motors
Solution:
Heated 38 kHz ultrasonic tank and rinse tank workstation
General Description:
Fullstainless steel construction; adjustable feet; bench top has splash back andwet edge to minimise spillage onto floor
Dimensions:
2,800mmwide x 825mm deep x 950mm bench height (1,150mm overall height)
Features:
Tank can be operated in either Manual or Auto (timed sonic & filtration cycles) modes.
Tank is heated and fully insulated. Temperature is controlled by an analogue temperature controller.
Tank has ‘Auto-fill’ feature,ensuring optimum operational levels are maintained. Neither Sonics nor heater will function if correct levels are not present.
