ULTRAMAX fundamental design principles prioritize the protection of people and the environment. Their unwavering commitment is cantered on solving parts cleaning challenges through water-based technology, eliminating the use of harmful solvents. These principles guide their projects and actions to ensure sustainability, safety, and environmental responsibility.
Optimizing the efficiency and sustainability of aqueous parts washers involves several strategies:
1. Choosing an Optimal Process Temperature: Identifying the lowest effective process temperature minimizes energy and water usage.
2. Optimizing Pump Volume and Spray Pressure: Selecting the right pump volume and spray pressure through strategic nozzle placement improves cleaning and efficiency.
3. Thermal Insulation: Thoroughly insulating tank and cabinet surfaces minimizes heat loss, reducing energy consumption.
4. Programmable Timers: Using 7-day timers controls solution heating during off-shifts, saving energy.
5. Effective Seals: Labyrinth-type seals and curtains prevent spray and steam emissions, preserving heat and solution.
6. Demisters and Droplet Separators: These reduce exhaust moisture, returning it to the solution tank, conserving energy and water.
7. Control of Heat and Solution Loss: Minimizing solution transfer between stages and drag-out helps reduce heat and solution loss.
8. Counterflow Solution Make-Up: Counterflow systems ensure efficient makeup water addition in multi-stage cleaning systems.
9. Recycling Rinse Water: Employing ULTRAMAX Éco-Smart® evaporators efficiently recycles large quantities of rinse water for reuse.
10. Cleaning Solution Maintenance: Monitoring cleaning performance and solution cleanliness helps determine optimal solution change frequency.
These strategies collectively enhance energy and resource efficiency while maintaining effective parts cleaning.
