The patented Primary Wire Wipe is as an economical, low maintenance, environmentally friendly system to remove visible dust, swarf and excessive lubricant from bare, tinned or plated nonferrous wire or strand. The Primary Wire Wipe employs a simple principle: Removal of any residuals is achieved by two strips of non-woven cleaning tape passing across the wire at a predetermined creep speed moving in opposite directions. One above and one below the wire. The constant traverse rate of the cleaning tape across the wire ensures a continuous supply of fresh, uncontaminated cleaning tape to the wire. In this manner the wire does not come into contact with contaminated cleaning tape as is the case when rags or stationary felt pads or boxes are used. The cleaning tape traverses rate and line speed is dependent on wire diameter and contamination.
The PWW facilitates subsequent processes which require a clean surface.
The PWW can also be used on the entry side of an aqueous cleaning system in order to reduce the rate of sludge build up in the aqueous cleaning system and the frequency of sludge removal. In case of reduced requirements to the surface quality the PWW is an economical alternative to expensive cleaning systems. Furthermore the system suit applications where low space is available.
Customized modifications of the PWW have been proven successful in applying different types of lubricants and finishes, such as corrosion inhibitors, adhesion enhancers and welding wire finishing materials.
Mechanical cleaning systems are traditionally used to clean wires, strips, spring steel and profiles. GEO-Reinigungstechnik offers different systems, both with the outstanding advantages of the superior surface quality, the low investment costs, the low wear and the easy handling.
The mechanically supported washing is based on the combination of rotating brush aggregates with a wet cleaning agent, sprayed on by nozzles. Our ready for use equipment is made of chemical resistant stainless steel and has a complete water circulation with particle filter and skimmer to extend operating life. The number and type of brushes are variable. Added by especially adapted cleaning chemicals the space-saving system guarantees extraordinary cleaning performance.
