Safe, efficient, and cost-effective cleaning of tooling, components, and parts
- Removes plastics, paints, epoxy, rubber, adhesives, grease, lubricants, and oils
- Fast cleaning minimizes production equipment down-time
- No tool damage or abrasion in cleaning
- Dry, inert, nontoxic aluminum oxide is a safer alternative than dangerous chemicals or solvents
- Sand sold separately
Industrial sand baths are ideal for heat treatment, cleaning, temperature calibrations, and reactive analysis (exothermic and endothermic reactions). They remove most polymers from tooling, including PVC, PET, PTFE, and PEEK without abrasion to the tool or mold. Parts immersed into the bath are cleaned by the high temperature (up to 600°C /1112°F) environment within a bath media of fluidized aluminum oxide. Baskets are available for cleaning of small parts. All baths require a dry air supply or an inert gas such as nitrogen and argon. Each unit comes with a front panel flowmeter to adjust airflow with settings for optimal flow per temperature. Note: When cleaning parts, baths should be operated in a hood or a well-ventilated area. Extraction collar and fans are available to ensure proper removal of fumes.
