MecWash Systems’ Duo 400 is a compact, fully automatic and self-contained aqueous cleaning system that is said to meet the highest visually clean and dry cleanliness and inspection standards. The system is well-suited for cell manufacturing or within a centralized layout with a small-footprint measuring 60” wide, 64” deep and 89” high. The single chamber rotational cleaning system features immersion/spray wash, spray rinse and hot air dry functions. Its aqueous technology cleans without solvents or emissions, and is effective at cleaning both small and large components in purpose-built fixtures or standard-sized stainless steel baskets or plastic totes.
The system’s wash chamber includes more than 100 high-volume jets that thoroughly penetrate and saturate the workpiece at over 130 gpm. The temperature of both the wash and rinse waters can be adjusted from 140º to 190ºF. Full rotation of the workpiece at 3 rpm exposes all surfaces to the wash and rinse solutions to ensure effective cleaning, draining and drying. Alternately, parts with delicate geometries can be programmed to gently oscillate from side to side.
The unit’s flood and spray wash cycles are followed by the spray rinse cycle. Afterward, a high velocity blow dryer raises temperature to 285ºF to quickly dry all faces of the given components’ surfaces as they rotate or oscillate during the dry cycle.
