IDO 36 and IDO 72

Machinery for parts cleaning

Machining processes use substantial volumes of coolant to protect the machinery and materials against premature wear. These processes use oils and emulsions. This mix of process consumables presents no problem for our IDO36 degreaser.

Incorporated water is automatically separated and is thus not able to further degrade the cleaning process. Waterspots are avoided by our shower-rinse process upgrade. Surface tension is then optimized by the high-immersion use of highly-purified solvent vapor.

In almost all cases, metal machining causes contamination that must then be removed.

Even when the raw material exhibits a high burden of chips and contaminants prior to the washing cycle, a combination of the right washing mode and washing container can nevertheless reduce the particulate surface burden to a maximum of 150 µm.

Coolants used in punch-press and deep-drawing operations are frequently highly chlorinated. The free chlorine and high temperatures in cleaning equipment frequently result in extensive corrosion damage and a very high use of consumables. The low-impact cleaning process of the IDO and the optimized process control by integrating a DESTA ensure that the temperatures in the equipment remain low at all times. This prevents the formation of additional acids.

By focusing on the essential elements, the acids generated during the punching operation and then incorporated into the equipment cannot cause unnoticed corrosion.

The IDO is also used in medical engineering. For instance, it has been reliably cleaning tooth drills at one of our customers since 2013. Oil residue that bonds to the intermediate products presents a major challenge in this case. The IDO is able to clean the parts to a surface tension of 72mN/m in spite of almost closed product containers and an extremely high packing density.
