The growing demands for cleaning mechanical components require the use of industrial cleaning systems characterized by cutting-edge, flexible technological solutions and with increasing attention to energy saving.
Firbimatic responds to the needs of the customers with two technological solutions:
- solvent washing under vacuum;
- water or detergent washing.
Washing with modified alcohol and hydrocarbons and with chlorinated solvents
All FIRBIMATIC solvent-based cleaning machines comply with Industry 4.0 requirements and prove to be extremely performing when the cleaning standards of companies operating in the precision mechanics sector and in the production of special high-tech components must be met.
Our solvent systems for metal components are designed for the use of two types of solvents, those with modified alcohol and class A III hydrocarbons (Evolution Range, Multisolvent Range, SFK-EK Range) and chlorinated ones (Logica – SF – E).
In both cases, the washing of the metal parts takes place inside hermetic chambers, therefore under vacuum, to guarantee impeccable results even when the components have complex geometries.
An overview of the phases of the washing cycle
The beginning of the cleaning cycle of the metal components with solvent is preceded by a degassing phase which allows the elimination of any air bubbles in the liquid for a completely safe process.
They follow are the cleaning phases:
- the high pressure pre-wash phase;
- the washing phase with total or partial immersion of the parts;
- the rinsing phase with distilled liquid;
- the vapour phase;
- the final stage of drying with modified alcohol.
A SUSTAINABLE parts washing technology
Through the distillation of the solvent used for washing the metal parts it is possible to reduce the environmental impact of the entire process.
In fact, the right washing program in addition to a correct and constant maintenance of the system allow for a substantial reduction in consumption.
The distillation of the solvent allows to separate solvent and oil, guaranteeing a minimum percentage of solvent among the final residues of the process.
