Firbimatic has been working for several years alongside major manufacturers of tubes, coils and metal profiles to develop a wide range of industrial customized vacuum cleaning systems for the degreasing and for the surface treatment of all type of big components.
These wide range of components include piping production, hollow bars, metal profiles, sophisticated mechanical components, aerospace parts (including honeycomb), oil and gas components, medical tubes , power industry and defence big components.
The tubes, hollow bars, rods, profiles or components treated in our system can be made of the most different metals, such as:
The Firbimatic customized vacuum cleaning systems can produce at an impressive hourly output (up to 3 cycles/h) as they are pre-arranged to work over 3 shifts and for more than 320 days a year, always insuring the compliance of the strictest internal cleaning parameters of the parts, (e.g. those set on EN 723 or ISO 16232).
Our customize cleaning and degreasing systems operate in full safety with the following typologies of solvents and liquids:
The operational principles of the vacuum cleaning systems which employ above solvents and liquids, are basically the same as that of standard systems, with the possibility to perform the cycle entirely under vacuum. At the same time, thanks to the modular design machine construction, the cleaning system can be adapted to the lay-out of the customer’s factory and can be integrated within existing production lines.
The operation cycle of pipe cleaning machine is totally automatic and it takes just one operator to load and unload the pipe bundles roughly every 20/40 minutes.
The machine is controlled by the PLC Siemens of the S7-1500 series, coupled either with an industrial PC or with the Siemens Touch-panel. All alarms and functions can be monitored and controlled remotely, thanks to the modem connection Siemens Gate Manager. This provides a clear picture of the working conditions of the system, which can inspected and trouble-shooted in real time remotely from the Firbimatic factory in Italy.
In the specific case of cleaning of stainless steel Coils, (which in some cases they can be up to 3 km long and with an internal diameter of up to 0.5 mm), each coil end needs to be positioned and fixed to a suitable structure to allow high pressure solvent washing/rinsing to be recirculated inside, up to a pressure of 400 BAR.
Finally, in case of a perchloroethylene operated machine, the remaining solvent vapours in the chamber are forced through the active charcoal bed with the aim to reduce their concentration inside the washing chamber until the acceptable lower limit. The cycle of cleaning machine takes roughly 30 minutes or so, based on the inside diameter of the tubes/coils and on their quantity.
The solvent is continually regenerated by the two powerful continuously running stills that regenerate the solvent periodically.
