With its EcoCWave, Dürr Ecoclean has developed an equipment system for aqueous cleaning processes that can handle tasks from rough to fine cleaning in an efficient manner. According to the company, the aqueous system is designed to ensure superior cleaning and process reliability, short overall cleaning cycles and major energy savings.

The system has a small footprint; therefore, it can easily be integrated in any production process, the company says. It also provides versatility by being easily adaptable to changing cleanliness and throughput specifications.

The EcoCWave is equipped with two or three flooding tanks, depending on customer requirements. The tanks are upright and their rounded geometry allows for optimized flow, which prevents the formation of chip and dirt traps. Improved cleaning quality and a longer service life of the cleaning fluid are the results.

Powerful pumps and large-diameter piping used throughout the system accelerate the operations of filling and draining the work chamber and tanks. Thus, idle time is minimized, product throughput is increased and costs per cleaned unit are reduced, the company says.

The EcoCWave has a vacuum-tight work chamber designed for batches measuring up to 670 × 480 × 300 mm. As an alternative, an enlarged work chamber for 670 × 480 × 400 mm containers may be installed without enlarging the footprint. The volume adapted batch configuration reduces per-unit costs.
