Advanced technology is getting better day after day, all sector of activities are increasing their needs in term of cleanliness requirements to delivery higher quality product.
First step for us is to identify your parts, type of contamination and your cleanliness requirements to define the best technical solution for your application.
Every single part is different in term of characteristics, any of these features may affect the cleaning solution:
Contaminations from previous processes can vary widely, as this input parameter is critical we categorized them in 3 main families:
Each customers have different cleanliness requirements, we personnaly classify them in 5 main categories:
To success and achieve these requirements, suitable testing method and standards are used depending on the cleanliness level :
To define the best solutions for your application, our approach is based on these:
For that, we are using the Sinner’s circle where the main 4 cleaning parameters are used to be able to find the suitable cleaning solution for you.
Regarding the chemistry we have 2 types of media; Aqueous and Solvent. In cleaning process the basic rule is, Similar dissolves similar!
– Solvent > dissolves organic contamination
– Aqueous > dissolves inorganic contamination
In most cases, special purifiers will be added to the aqueous media in order to support the resolution of organic contamination. Additionally, these additives can take over pickling, phosphating, conservation or other tasks.
This parameter is the addition of all the phases necessary to accomplish the desired cleaning result. Usually we have 3 main ones; dregreasing/cleaning, rinsiing and drying.
If the total time exceeds the required processing cycle time, it will have a serious impact on the choice of the cleaning equipment.
The temperature influences both the quality of the cleaning and drying as well as the overall cycle time.
Due to the component’s features and the physicochemical background, there is also some limitation regarding the cleaning process.
The mechanical action can influence significantly the cleanliness results and total cycle time.
Various technologies are available, each of them have advantages and weaknesses depending on the application.
To be able to propose you the smartest technology depending on your needs, MecanoLav, HEMO, LPW, Washtech and NGCT join together to form a competence network called Surface Alliance Cleaning Corporation.

After selecting the best cleaning solution for your application, we still need to consider few other important paramaters such as:
Which floor space is available?
Will it be a one-piece flow production line or a batche machine?
Will the machine be loaded/unloaded manually or automatically?
Will it be a stand-alone unit or communicating with other systems?
