Almost every cold processing is done with sorts of oil, grease, emulsion and stearate. Rests and fractions of these have a negative impact on the product quality. Therefore, a high quality final product requires cleaning before the subsequent processing.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a highly efficient cleaning method for cleaning long products that achieves excellent surface quality even at high throughput speeds. The method is based on the effect of cavitation concentrated in a tank or pipe flooded with cleaning fluid.
In its high-performance ultrasonic systems, GEO uses specificaly for industrial inline profile cleaning optimized and patented ultrasonic modules, which are unmatched in terms of the power density achieved. The resulting intense cavitation field results in a very effective cleaning of wires, profiles, strands, tapes and other endless materials.
Compared to conventional solutions, the short design of the modules with simultaneous high power input allows an individual and space-saving design of the system concept.
In single line applications for the continuous cleaning of wire, tube and band-shaped profiles varying in size from a couple of micrometers up to 30 millimeter OD GEO’s powerful ultrasonic tube reactor is the centerpiece of the systems.
Compact Tube reactors are unmatched in terms of ultrasound, power density and variability. The method is based on the effect of cavitation, concentrated in a tube flooded with cleaning liquid. Inside the pipe of the tube reactor, the small amount of cleaning fluid is exposed to a high-intensive ultrasonic field creating cavitation. 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 particulate contaminants inline. In-line pickling processes are supported as well.
Ultrasonic immersible transducers are the first choice for the cleaning in multi-wire applications. In case of just a few, close together guided lines GEO’s tube reactor can be used alternatively. Due to its slim design a parallel arrangement of several units is also possible.
