Cleaning & Degreasing

Five Fold Increase In cleaning Efficiency

The arrival of a front-loading, aqueous washing and rinsing system from Turbex at the Hampshire production facility of leading UK pump manufacturer Selwood has improved dramatically the efficiency with which machined castings are washed in preparation for assembly. Two rotating-drum machines, also aqueous and supplied by Turbex 20 years ago to supplant a trichloroethylene cleaning process, have been replaced by a new AC-1.7-2 twin-stage machine from the Alton supplier.

A complete solution

MecWash Systems was contacted by one of its longstanding customers, one of Europe’s largest independent engine remanufacturers and assemblers, who supplies some of the world’s leading automotive OEMs.

Medical Grade Cleaning

At a cost of more than £1 million, Assembly Techniques Ltd (ATL) - in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, is opening a new, two-story facility featuring a Class ISO8 (US FED STD 209E 100,000) cleanroom for component washing and drying on the ground floor.
Adjacent to it is a class (IS07/10,000) area for processing critical clean sub-assemblies for future customers in the medical sector. On the upper level is a white room for assembling less critical kits that are currently supplied to manufacturers in the analytical, food, water and other industries.

Aqueous Ultrasonic Line Installed For Cleaning Nuclear Components

Derbyshire-based Paul Fabrications, a Unitech Aerospace company, has for a long time used both aqueous and solvent systems to wash machined, pressed and fabricated stainless steel components for its customer, Springfields Fuels Limited, near Preston, which supplies fuel pellets for advanced gas-cooled reactors in the UK.
