The Ekuma 700 Super Cleaner from MAS will be making its North American debut at NPE2015.
The unit reliably removes thermoplastic contamination from extrusion tools, filter parts and more. No cleaning agents are required and combustion does not occur in the vacuum during the cleaning process. This protects the components against local overheating and thus against annealing and mechanical damage. A cleaning cycle takes between 120 and 240 min. depending on part size, at a working temperature of 400-450 C and with a vacuum of approx. -0.4 bar.
The device can be installed in any room with a water supply and drain, a gas extractor and an electrical power supply.
