Industrial equipment needs servicing and cleaning. The most common processes of industries which manufacture items are cleaning degreasing the metals, glass and plastic with cleaning liquids.
There are many types of industrial cleaning and washers, let’s go through some of them.
In this process of cleaning mainly detergents are used which can emulsify oils. The parts of the machines are usually small, and they are kept in a basket and immersed directly in the cleaning agent. This type of cleaning is carried out mainly on surface preps, degreasing, stripping or de-scaling, or bottle or container cleaning.
This is same as immersion cleaning but more enhanced. Most of the liquid cleaners like semi-aqueous solutions, alkaline, acidic, and neutral increase their cleaning efficiency by this method. They are mainly used to clean contaminants and oils, grease, particles, and machining chips using an ultrasonic wash. Also, they are then rinsed and dried ultrasonically. In this method, with the help of transducers, ultrasonic energy is created in the cleansing liquid.
In this process first the immersion method is used on machine parts and then the same solution is applied to spray on them. As generally, the nozzle pressure is low, the parts don’t have foam problems. This method is used for parts which have heavy oils. A cleaner with oil rejecting capacity is used to skim down oils from the solution surface. This method is used for cleaning nuts, bolts and washers.
This process is used on de-scaling, de-burring and pre-planting procedures. Mechanical energy is delivered by the machine to the media with cleansing compounds to do polishing, burnishing or abrades on the parts of the device. When the vibratory cleaning is done the parts are usually removed with the help of the hand, but separate screens may be used as an aid.
Mostly alkaline solutions are used in this cleaning process. The parts are directly sprayed with a cleansing agent on a pressure. The shape of the nozzle helps the cleaning agent reach the remotest parts of the machine or its parts. The higher the force of solution, the more foams get generated in a spray washer. This method is useful for removing oils from parts. For eliminating soil, mechanical process is also applied.
Things you should remember to buy a cleaner:
- Removal of soil.
- Should know the surface which is to be cleaned, so that the whole surface area gets cleaned.
- The underlying components should get cleaned by the cleaner.
- The cleaner supports corrosion protection.
- Restrictions on the material.
Overall should be good for the plant’s health as well as safety.
