Our involvement in component cleaning is primarily concerned with the internal profile.
We have used various techniques including pulsing a flow of fluid in alternate directions through the component for one application and introducing a CNC controlled lance into the component to supply high pressure fluid at precisely controlled locations for another.
The make up of the component dictates the most suitable cleaning technique which we then hone and refine to give the best cleaning performance in the time allowed.
The Pump Flushing Rig
The machine is designed to flush the parts in order to clean to within a specified level of cleanliness. The machine flushes the parts with a mixture of fluid and air bubbles, at up to 9 bar with 10% air and up to 10 bar at 5% air content. The main objective of the machine is to clean multiple pumps at once in order to achieve the desired per-pump cycle time and is capable of handling a variety of types of pump through fixture changes.
