CO2 Cleaning: CleanFlex™
High Speed Automated Spray CO2 Cleaning System
Numerous products including hard disk drives require incredibly clean components to function properly.
The CleanFlex™ automated spray CO2 cleaning system is an extremely economical and flexible robotic precision cleaning solution for ambient pressure environments. Proven in critical applications, the CleanFlex’s absolute consistency is unmatched.
Built-in modules purify, condense and store ultra-clean liquid CO2 from a source of low cost bulk CO2 gas. The CO2 cleaning crystals completely vaporize during application. Therefore you’ll never get drag-out from previous parts and every recipe uses virgin CO2 so the results are exactly the same, month after month with no residuals.
The CleanFlex™ is engineered for reliability and minimal operator interaction. Operators simply load pallets through the light curtain protected port onto the four-bay carousel (in-line configuration available and shown in the image).
Automatic bar code readers identify the components on each pallet. Up to 10 different pre-programmed recipe patterns provide precise and consistent spray cleaning, ensuring complete particulate and thin film removal.
All parameters related to spray applicator angle of impact, nozzle distance, speed-of-trajectory and a host of other variables are custom tailored to match the specific needs of the parts through an easy to use touch-screen interface.
The fully-enclosed, HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) work zone is ruggedly built for years of operation within any type of factory environment.
Examples of CO2 Cleaning Applications and Benefits for the CleanFlex™
