The PYRO-STRIP™ fluidized bed cleaning system offers the most efficient thermal cleaning in the shortest amount of time. This allows more frequent fixture changes per work shift and greatly increases the efficiency of the painting or powder coating system. The process also strips reject parts, castings, and assemblies from shelving to shopping carts. The exceptional energy efficiency of the process is due to the absorption of the thermal energy given off by the combustion of the organic matter or coating that further heats the media as the product is being stripped or cleaned.
The parts or product to be stripped can be steel, iron or bronze, as well as some aluminum. The parts are loaded into a basket that is then hoisted into the fluidized bed where the fluidized hot media (Quartz Sand or Aluminum Oxide) scrubs and gasifies the organic material vaporizing it without damaging or warping the work pieces. The cleaning cycle takes from 20 to 60 minutes at a temperature of 800 to 850 deg. F. The time cycle is regulated by the mass of the load and amount of organic material to be removed. The basket of cleaned parts is lifted out of the fluidized bed to cool. The work pieces in most cases may be ready to use on the line with little or no post-cleaning. The bubbling action of the media removes most loose ash coating from the surface.
The PYRO-STRIP™ system offers multiple features with all of its designs.
