Ecoclean UK, supplier of forward-looking machinery and services for industrial parts cleaning, precision parts cleaning, deburring and surface treatment, operates since June 2021 from its new premises. It is located at Unit 10A at Arrow Business Park, Alcester Employment Park, Arden Forest Way in Alcester, Warwickshire.
“Due to the easy access to the motorway network (A46, A435, A422) and Birmingham airport, the new location is in convenient reach from all over the UK, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic,” explains Matthew Cooper, who is heading the UK branch of Ecoclean since 2013. On an area of 2000 sq ft, the new business premises house a showroom, service department and test facilities. Close to the new premises a variety of other major suppliers for different industries are located.
The test center with associated technical support is available for cleaning tests. Trials can be carried out in different wet-chemical cleaning technologies at no cost, using authentic contaminated parts off the customer’s production line. For cleaning tests with water-based media such as neutral, alkaline and acidic formulation an EcoCcube and EcoCwave are available.
The spray cleaning machine EcoCcube is designed for the effective aqueous cleaning of workpieces with different geometries in two- stage processes (cleaning, rinsing and filtration) with hot air drying. The very compact dimensions of the machine meet the demand for more efficient cleaning technology when space is limited. This also makes it ideal for use as a local cell or stand-alone solution for intermediate cleaning, as well as for simpler cleaning tasks.
The powerful spray flood cleaning system EcoCwave is equipped with three tanks and a vacuum-tight work chamber. It is capable to handle any cleaning task from preliminary and intermediate cleaning up to precision cleaning. The use of upright cylindrical flood tanks, which have been developed for fine cleaning applications, ensure optimised fluid management, a high flexibility and improved process quality. A combination of hot-air and vacuum drying enables 100% dry parts.
Tests for solvent-based cleaning processes can be carried out using a future-oriented EcoCcore with polar solvents. It can also be used with non- halogenated hydrocarbons. Cleaning and drying take place under full vacuum. Due to its extensive standard equipment and various innovative details, the machine is perfectly tailored to satisfy high demands of cleanliness and throughput in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner.
With these diverse options for carrying out cleaning tests, Ecoclean UK covers a very wide range of degreasing and cleaning tasks in practically all industrial sectors as well as in remanufacturing. “It was also important for us to offer state of the art testing facilities for the specific requirements in medical engineering, which we have succeeded in doing thanks to the machine equipment in the test center,” adds Matt Cooper.
