Ultrasonic Automated Passivation Equipment
Our automated ultrasonic passivation equipment using nitric or citric acid perform an automated process of cleaning-rinsing-passivation-rinsing-drying by moving the fluids from heated storage tanks into a single ultrasonic process tank, rather than moving the parts basket through a series of tanks.
With this passivation machine, the entire process required to clean, rinse, passivate, rinse, rinse and dry manufactured stainless steel metal parts is performed at the push of a button using user defined cycles via touch panel screen. The process is PLC computer-controls the fill-and-drain sequence to cycle parts through the cleaning, rinsing, and hot air drying processes; all within a single chambered unit.
Modular heated storage tanks complete the Ultrasonic cleaning machine for re-use of detergents and rinse water. This system configuration removes operator interaction, variability and eliminates exposure to chemicals.The end result is higher quality cleaned and passivated parts with tighter process controls which can be easily validated for regulated products like medical device and aerospace. The operator simply puts dirty, dry parts in, hits start and returns to cleaned, passivated and dry parts.
