High Performance and a Very Small Footprint

Cleaning & Pretreatment New Compact Cleaning Systems

A new generation of manually loaded compact cleaning machines is designed for improved performance and highly cost-effective operation.

After redesigning its fast automated cleaning machine (Multiclean-FX), Höckh has now turned its attention to its range of manually loaded compact cleaning systems. According to the manufacturer, the third generation of Lean Concept systems (LC-III) is more powerful and easier to maintain while retaining the same compact dimensions as its predecessors. The model that is only 1250 mm wide and 1900 mm deep is particularly practical, because it can be positioned with its back against a wall.

Up to six batches per hour

The new range of compact machines is used with standard baskets which are 530 × 320 × 200 mm in size and, depending on the complexity of the cleaning programme, can process up to six batches per hour. With two cleaning circuits, ultrasound and three-stage fine filters, it is perfectly equipped for small and medium-sized businesses which require high-quality cleaning processes. This includes, in particular, companies that produce turned or pressed parts and manufacturers of medical devices.

The energy-saving mode of the new manually loaded compact cleaning machine makes it very cost-effective to run.

Energy-saving function reduces electricity consumption

The entire cleaning process takes place in a full vacuum. This ensures that it operates safely with all common solvents (hydrocarbons, modified alcohol or perchloroethylene). The standard distillation unit, which has a heat recovery system, and the residual distillation unit, which automatically removes any oil, significantly reduce the amount of maintenance needed and ensure that the solvent baths last for several years.

A particularly useful feature for small-scale users is the extended energy-saving function, which reduces electricity consumption in stand-by mode to an absolute minimum and allows for highly cost-effective part-time operation.
