The company will be displaying its Fluid Clean™ fluidized bed systems that are used in a large number of manufacturing industries where a fast, safe, environmentally-friendly method is desired for the removal of paint, powder, solidified plastic and other organic materials from metal surfaces and tooling. The system consists of a reservoir filled with precisely calibrated quartz sand, which is brought to a bubbling state by the introduction of air and gas at the bottom.  As this mixture reaches the top of the sand bed it is ignited by a pilot burner, which spreads the flame across the surface. When the bed reaches an operating temperature of approximately 800oF, a basket containing the metal parts to be cleaned is automatically lowered into the fluidized sand for a pre-determined cycle time, typically ranging from 30-60 min.  The heat and constant, gentle movement of the sand cleans the items without deformation or damage.  Organic materials are immediately burned off at the top of the bed, and the sand absorbs the heat.  This significantly reduces the amount of external energy required. A range of configurations and sizes are available.
