Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 12, 2012
Steven Smith, president of Die Cleaning Equipment and Supply, Inc., announced today the award of a DieKlean 360-3-2 die cleaning system for AstroShapes, Inc. of Struthers, Ohio. As the innovative leader in the manufacture of post aluminum extrusion die cleaning systems, the company’s DieKlean 360 family of die cleaning equipment is specifically designed to address the safety and efficiency deficiencies of the conventional die cleaning process. These machines have demonstrated a significant reduction in sodium hydroxide consumption and up to a 50% reduction in cleaning time compared to conventional wet tank die cleaning processes.
Fully automatic, each DieKlean 360 machine provides for regulated mixing of die cleaning chemicals, provides individual cleaning tank controls, and enhances plant safety because operator exposure to the cleaning chemicals is minimized. Instead of open tanks of hot caustic solution, dies are safely loaded into dry tanks before the cleaning solution is added, then closed with lids that are secured during the entire die cleaning process.
The AstroShapes DieKlean 360-3-2 features three cleaning tanks, two mixing tanks, and two immersion rinse tanks. The redundant mixing tank provides for continuous cleaning capability by permitting the premix staging of each batch of cleaning solution.
