At Mach 2010 Turbex will launch its latest range of aqueous cleaning machines and ultrasonic cleaning systems for component cleaning and degreasing applications in engineering workshops.

The aqueous cleaning machines were introduced at the beginning of 2010 under an exclusive agency agreement with Mafac.

They are distinguished by a system that makes the movements of the holding basket and spray jets individually adjustable, allowing them to rotate in the same or opposite directions.

Each program can therefore be tailored, together with other movement options such as rocking of the basket, to efficiently clean complex parts.

The machines have integral condensing systems so there is no need for extraction to be fitted.

There are five machines in the Mafac range, to be represented on the stand by the Elba, which will be under power.

It has a dual wash tank, integrated warm air drying and an easy-to-use control that stores cleaning programs without complicated codes.

A folding loading door is standard, although a vertical sliding door can be specified for use with automatic basket transfer for unmanned operation.

Mach will also feature Versa, a compact ultrasonic cleaning system from Turbex supplier Finnsonic.

This modular, expandable equipment can have any number of tanks, which can be 40-, 80- or 120-litre capacity.

Typical cleaning processes include ultrasonic or immersed jet cleaning, single or multiple water rinsing and hot air drying.

Particle filtration as well as oil separation can be included, according to customer requirements.

Manual configurations can be specified.

Each tank is operated from a panel linked to a central PLC system, which provides ease of use and also allows retrofitting of handling automation, available for 10kg or 20kg basket weights.

Manual handling by pneumatic assist lift is available for baskets weighing up to 30kg.

Turbex will also showcase the stainless steel AS-100, which is intended for degreasing and cleaning components up to 950mm across by 700mm high and weighing a maximum of half a tonne.

Larger machines are also available as well as multi-stage configurations with washing and rinsing capable of more thorough cleaning.

Ideal for use in repair and maintenance shops serving transport depots, rail yards and marine workshops, for example, the single-stage spray wash machine is also suited to inter-process cleaning in production environments, such as batch degreasing of machined components and preparing fabrications for welding.

The cleaning medium is detergent dissolved in water heated to 50-75C, delivered at 400 litres/min and 4 bar pressure through rotating spray pipes.

In normal operation, the door at the front is lowered with the assistance of two gas springs, one or more components are placed in the work chamber, the door is closed, cycle times and temperature parameters are set on the control and the automatic cycle is started.

An optional lance with its own multi-impeller pump can be connected directly to the tank, allowing particularly awkward soils to be removed or temporary use of the equipment as a manual spray booth, without any automatic cleaning.

Acoustic as well as thermal insulation ensure a good working environment.

Optional accessories include a steam extraction fan, automatic refill, an oil skimmer or separator, and a detergent dosing unit.

Also on show will be the CL-360 from the Turbex Classic range of stainless steel, top-loading spray washers.

They provide a compact and economical method of cleaning parts and subassemblies in engineering workshops.

Ranging from 360mm to 1200mm in diameter, the machines are said to offer value for money in a range of applications.
