Ultrasonic cleaning plant built to customer specifications
Ultrasonic cleaning using water-based detergents. Composed of Y working positions. Individual tank volume is X litres, 5 minute cycle time.
The machine is made of AISI 304 stainless steel (EN 1.4301) throughout. PLURITANK LX/YP is a conventional industrial multi-tank inline ultrasonic cleaning plant. The plant is built to customer specifications only. The machine works with water-based detergents and has Y working positions consisting in cleaning and rinsing tanks and drying ovens. The cleaning and rinsing tanks have a capacity of X litres each. The cleaning tanks are equipped with agitation, ultrasound, heating elements to heat the washing liquid, circulator pump and filter. All the rinsing tanks are designed to work in contraflow cascade, the final rinsing tank is equipped with a slow movement lifting system designed to allow drip drying of the washed products. The products are then dried with hot air in a feed-through oven. The PLURITANK LX/YP industrial cleaning plant features Y cleaning tanks. On request, the cleaning tanks can be made so that they are replaceable in a matter of minutes. The cleaning processes can be customized according to the product, and also the process parameters of each single tank can be likewise customized. PLURITANK LX/YP is designed for industrial cleaning of a vast range of materials, shapes and sizes and can remove contaminates such as machining residues or chemical process residues, cutting oils, powders, etc. The machine throughput is 5 minutes per product batch. The products to be cleaned are moved from a tank to the other with a dedicated basket and a two-axes robot. A single phase of the cleaning process is performed in each position/tank, and the cycle time is identical for each position/tank. Industrial ultrasonic cleaning is supported by Industry 4.0 compatible management software and a simple and intuitive HMI interface. The management software features several access levels: the software logs all operator-entered process types, highlights periodic maintenance intervals, logs any technical problems affecting the machine, etc. The system features a “help” button to send a service request email to Eurocold technical service. This function is especially useful if the ultrasonic cleaning machine runs 24/7 or in a significantly different time zone to Italy. Technical service accesses the machine remotely, retrieves and analyses the machine data and, in the vast majority of cases, solves the problem without an on-site visit. The machine work zone is protected from external contamination by means of a casing, and the internal air is continuously circulated and filtered.
