The SFK – EK cleaning system range is the Firbimatic top model intended for the cleaning of big dimension parts or for the cleaning of huge quantities of small parts. It performs a treatment of cleaning and drying under high vacuum at all stages of the treatment (Washing – drying – deodorization and distillation).
The SFK – EK is conceived to employ, in absolute safety, the hydrocarbon solvents belonging to the class AIII (Flash-Point > 56°C) or alternatively the Modified alcohols solvent (glycol ethers) and ensures the best cleaning quality by taking advantage of the hermetic operation under deep vacuum, which ensures the best cleaning results on complex surfaces, inside cavities and blind holes.
The prior degassing of the solvent, which precedes the start of the actual cleaning cycle, in fact ensures the absolute absence of air bubbles, and then the penetration and homogeneity of the immersion bath. At the end of the cycle, it performs the drying with vacuum values of less than 1-2 mBar: the pieces come out completely deodorised and without any residue of solvent which may contaminate the work environment.
The distillation process which consists of two distinct phases, allows an almost total separation between solvent and oils, distinguished by a negligible presence of solvent in the distillation residues.
In particular, the continuous distillation of the solvent (main phase of distillation) is alternated to phase of solvent Boil-down, which is made at the end of the day in the main distiller (or, if the option is present, the distiller through secondary).
The Boil-down of oily residues has the aim to reduce up to values <1 % the residual solvent content in the sludge which are then automatically ejected in a timed phase (with temperature control).
In no circumstance, the operator comes into contact with the solvent, because the management of: loading-unloading, the drainage distillation residues and of the cleaning of the filters, take place automatically and without creating problems for the operator relatively to a possible exposure of the same to residual emissions.
