Ultrasonic cleaning plant with 5 detergent tanks
Ultrasonic cleaning using water-based detergents. Composed of 12 working positions. Individual tank volume is 22 litres, 5 minute cycle time.
The machine is made of AISI 304 stainless steel (EN 1.4301) throughout. PLURITANK is a conventional industrial multi-tank inline ultrasonic cleaning plant. The plant is built to customer specifications only. The machine works with water-based detergents and has 12 working positions consisting in cleaning and rinsing tanks and drying ovens. The cleaning and rinsing tanks have a capacity of 10 litres each. The cleaning tanks are equipped with agitation, ultrasound, heating elements to heat the washing liquid, circulator pump and filter. All the rinsing tanks are designed to work in contraflow cascade, the final rinsing tank is equipped with a slow movement lifting system designed to allow drip drying of the washed products. The products are then dried with hot air in a feed-through oven. The PLURITANK 22/12P industrial cleaning plant features 5 cleaning tanks. On request, the cleaning tanks can be made so that they are replaceable in a matter of minutes. All the industrial cleaning processes are customized in accordance with the products, as are the operating parameters of each single tank. PLURITANK 22/12P is designed to clean a wide range of materials, shapes and dimensions, and can remove dirt such as residues of mechanical or chemical processing, cutting oil, dusts, etc. The machine throughput rate is one product batch every 5 minutes. The products to be cleaned are moved from a tank to the other with a dedicated basket and a two-axes robot. A single phase of the cleaning process is performed in each position/tank, and the cycle time is identical for each position/tank. The ultrasonic cleaning process is supported by management software compatible with Industry 4.0 and by an intuitive and simple HMI interface. The management software features several access levels: the software logs all operator-entered process types, highlights periodic maintenance intervals, logs any technical problems affecting the machine, etc. The system features a “help” button to send a service request email to Eurocold technical service. This function is especially useful if the ultrasonic cleaning machine runs 24/7 or in a significantly different time zone to Italy. Technical service accesses the machine remotely, retrieves and analyses the machine data and, in the vast majority of cases, solves the problem without an on-site visit. The machine work zone is protected from external contamination by means of a casing, and the internal air is continuously circulated and filtered.
