EcoCWave – the innovative all-round talent for applications ranging from coarse to fine cleaning
Dürr Ecoclean launches a new machine generation for use with water-based media at parts2clean 2014
The media used in wet chemical cleaning of parts and surfaces are often water-based. Depending on the task on hand, they may be formulated as acid or neutral or alkaline cleaning fluids. Application levels may range from coarse to fine cleaning. But regardless of whether the aim is to remove coarse contamination between or after machining operations or to meet defined cleanliness specifications, the cleaning process must be carried out rapidly and in a cost and energy-efficient manner. In developing the EcoCWave system, Dürr Ecoclean's engineers therefore focused on just these requirements.
High operating flexibility plus low energy and space demand
In order to provide users from diverse industries – e.g., automotive manufacturers and their tiered suppliers, medical equipment makers, workshops carrying out mechanical operations such as machining, punching, drawing or bending – with a forward-looking cleaning solution, the EcoCWave has been built to adapt optimally to any cleaning task and can be expanded as needed. The new single-chamber system also provides maximum flexibility when it comes to batch sizes. Its technical features ensure that the specified cleaning result will be achieved quickly and with minimum energy input. Per-unit cleaning costs are further reduced by a series of measures geared to boost the system's process reliability and enhance its user friendliness.
Apart from its exceptional performance, the EcoCWave distinguishes itself by its low space demand – the engineers of the Filderstadt-based equipment manufacturer have managed to reduce its footprint to a minimum. With its attractive design, the new cleaning line also represents a visual highlight. Replacing its precedessor model Universal 81 W, the EcoCWave will be premiered at parts2clean 2014 at Dürr Ecoclean GmbH's stand in Hall 5, booth C 18 / D 17.
