Cleaning Solutions


Multistage Units

An industrial Cleaning system consists of individual stages each of which performs a particular task, such as pre cleaning, cleaning, rinsing and drying. Depending on the soils present and the desired cleaning result, the process can also be enhanced by for example ultrasonics and mechanical agitation of the parts to be cleaned. For some time now, standard systems with a rigid sequence of stages have not been suitable for efficiently performing complex operations.

This has led to the introduction of a concept where individual modules or building blocks were specifically developed so that they could be arranged in any sequence.

A further advantage of the modular approach is that the system can be modified or extended when the production process changes. Modern modular not only work with aqueous processes but also cover cleaning applications in which semi-aqueous and hydro carbons are used.

Peripheral Options

Along with the basic building blocks of the modular bench a wide variety of options are available in order that the system is suited to the final use. This includes the use of robotics for an automated system and other add-ons that increase the ability of the plant to clean to the standard required. These options include:

  • Filtration systems
  • Basket moving mechanisms
  • Fume extraction
  • Exhaust air washers
  • Automatic conveyor systems
  • Process control and display
  • Moving beam conveyors
  • Rotation systems
  • Partial and total enclosures
  • Automatic load and unload
  • Deionised water systems
  • Rinse fluid re-circulation systems

The purpose of the modular bench is to select from a standard range of modules to create a purpose designed system. Listed below is a system designed for industry. The graphic representation is expanded to show the finished plant complete with robot.

Industrial cleaning plants are used in practically every sector of industry. Because of their flexible modular design they are especially suitable where precision cleaning is required. These industries include:


  • Surface treatment
  • Medical appliance
  • Precision mechanics
  • Electrical/electronic
  • Optics
  • Nuclear
  • Metal
  • Aviation
  • Vacuum technology
  • Food Processing
  • Transport




With the growing complexity of cleaning techniques in recent years, laboratory cleaning tests have become practically indispensable.
In our applications laboratory we try out processes and cleaning solutions to find the most suitable technology. The laboratory is
equipped with the apparatus needed to achieve and prove the cleaning processes. 
From simple visual aids to Ultra-violet scanning Totalsonic can prove the effectiveness of our cleaning technology.

CE Guarding

With any process that involves robotics it is important that all risk assessments have been carried out and that the device complies to the CE guarding directive.
Seen to the left is an example of a fully enclosed plant where the chemistry involved is deemed so aggressive that a total enclosure is necessary. In other cases simple light beam technology may be used. Conveyors in this system are gravity fed however powered units are available on request
