Dürr Ecoclean Ultra-compact and eco-friendly industrial cleaning
Germany – Dürr Ecoclean will be presenting its Ecoccube, an extremely compact cleaning machine, at the AMB. The front-loading aqueous spray-cleaning system’s small footprint, low weight, complete suite of equipment and ready-to-connect construction are designed to enable fast and easy integration into production, the company says.
Aqueous component cleaning with alkaline, neutral or acidic media is one of the most widely employed cleaning technologies in industries, including re-manufacturing. The machine, which is intended for simpler to intermediate cleaning tasks, measures 2100 x 1630 x 1855 mm / 6.90 x 5.35 x 6.10 ft. (length x width x height). According to Dürr, the two-stage (washing / rinsing) and ready-to-connect spray unit with hot-air drying is designed to be integrated into the manufacturing environment easily and quickly. The front-loading system with its integrated manual loading device is intended to offer users flexibility. The company notes that parts soiled with oil and/or emulsion can be cleaned as individual or bulk components. The all-round spray system with four nozzle sets works with a high circulation flow rate, both when cleaning and when rinsing. The cleaning effect of the medium used can be increased through rotation of the parts in the work chamber. Drying is performed by hot-air circulation without loss of vapour to the environment. The Ecoccube’s programmable control system can store up to 10 distinct programs for part-specific processes. The HMI control panel is laid out intuitively in order to make program selection and start easy, safe and reliable, Dürr adds. Twelve cleaning, rinsing and drying operations of batches weighing up to 80 kg (176 lbs) each can be conducted per hour. Contaminants brought into the bath are continuously removed from the fluids by integrated full-stream filtration and an oil skimmer. The correct operating temperature is achieved quickly and in an energy-efficient way through the optimised dimensions of two standard flood tanks.
Dürr Ecoclean says that the Ecoccube’s energy efficiency and high throughput lead to cost-efficient cleaning processes and help to reduce manufacturing costs per unit.
Dürr Ecoclean supplies the broad industrial market with the latest cleaning technology and systems for surface activation and treatment.
