ultrasonic wire cleaning unit
Especially optimized for continuous industrial profile cleaning, our new ultrasonic tube chamber is unmatched in terms of its ultrasound and power density. Inside the tube, the cleaning fluid is exposed to a high-intensive ultrasonic field creating cavitation, or tiny vacuum bubbles which implode in the fluid. The concentration across the entire tube cross-section and the distinctive focus zone inside the tube causes an intensive sonication which effectively removes soap, grease, oil, emulsions or crack residues inline.
The space-saving narrow design and the inner diameter of the tube make the unit suitable for a multiplicity of applications. Hence the ultrasound modules are used both in GEO’s custom-made cleaning- and pickling equipment. Depending on requirements the modules can be arranged in row or parallel to increase ultrasonic exposure and, therefore, throughput.
Furthermore, the ultrasonic wire and strip cleaning unit is highly efficient, fail-safe, low-maintenance and long lasting due to the 3.6 mm thick stainless steel tube material AISI 316 Ti utilised. Ultrasonic wire cleaning modules are generally incorporated in a complete wire cleaning station including cleaning solution management, rinsing, and drying if required.
