Drying Cleaning Systems
This unit cleans thermo discs that tend to coin and stick
together when covered with heat treating oils. Trichloroethylene
is used to degrease the oil and when vacuum is applied, the
solvent is flashed from the discs and recovered for reuse
. The chamber, when opened has less than 25 PPM of TCE remaining
in the unit. The TCE within the area of the lid has been measured
to be less than 5 PPM, well within the OSHA requirement for
worker exposure within the workplace.
When parts can collect solvent in pockets, rotation systems
are available. Rotating parts prior to drying drains solvent
from the pockets to ensure complete vacuum drying. The system
pictured has 4 separate rotation chambers for small lots.
