The compact Duo 400 from MecWash Systems is a single-chamber rotational cleaning system that offers immersion/spray wash, spray rinse and hot-air dry using aqueous technology cleans that without solvents or emissions. The system measures just 60 × 64 × 89 inches and can clean both large and small components in purpose-built fixtures or standard-size stainless steel baskets and plastic totes.
The system’s wash chamber includes more than 100 high-volume jets that penetrate and saturate the workload at more than 130 gal/min. The workload is fully rotated at 3 rpm to expose all surfaces to the wash and rinse solutions, and ensure effective cleaning, draining and drying. Alternately, parts with delicate geometries can be programmed to gently oscillate from side to side.
The temperature of both the wash and rinse waters can be set between 140 and 190°F. A high-velocity blow dryer raises temperatures up to 285°F to quickly dry all surfaces as they rotate or oscillate during the dry cycle.
For iron and steel parts, MecWash also manufactures a line of aqueous cleaning chemicals with corrosion inhibition to protect them from rust for up to two weeks after cleaning.
