Ecoclean’s high-pressure spray cleaning option for solvent-based cleaning machines allows spraying processes and injection flood washing to be performed at adjustable pressures of up to 16 bars. According to the company, the additional cleaning capability delivers improved cleaning results on geometrically complex parts and bulk-cleaned items for the removal of film-type or particulate contaminants.

The company says that the add-on system provides flexible, adaptable spraying processes with a high-pressure pump and additional spraying bars that can be used in conjunction with any system’s current 2-3 bar spraying device. One spraying bar is mounted on the interior wall of the work chamber, while the second is centrally placed in the work chamber to provide both interior or exterior spraying either simultaneously or in an alternating pattern. The spray pressure is adjusted via the high-pressure pump, which is controlled by variable-frequency drive. The number of nozzles and product movement can be adapted to optimize the spraying process for a given part size and geometry. Moreover, this technology supports the use of various nozzles matched to the specific application in terms of size and jet shape. The pressure, spray duration, spraying mode (simultaneous or alternating) and product movement can be defined in a part-specific cleaning program and stored in the machine controller.

For cleaning processes requiring only external spraying and/or no high pressure application, the central spray bar can be removed in a few simple steps. In this case, the entire volume of the work chamber will be available to accommodate standard cleaning containers.

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
