Cleaning Systems

The cleaning products of the FilaTech Filament Technology and Spinning GmbH are technologically geared toward the customer and are also user-friendly. All processes along with the entire machine technology are being tested through continuous use (shift operation) in the sister company FRG Filter Recycling GmbH and have been optimized over the years. As an expert partner we are able to offer you not only high quality equipment but also perfected processes. The FilaTech Filament Technology and Spinnanlagen GmbH is a specialist for single components such as solvents, vacuum, secondary cleaning and inspection systems and turnkey cleaning concepts which include complete engineering.

 

Solvent Cleaning

Very mild cleaning conditions for sensitive machine parts as filter elements and spinnerets. Standard design for use of triethylene glycol (TEG, C6H1404) as solvent for complete removal of PET, PBT, PA, PC, PU and other polymers from machine parts. Special designs for other solvents available upon request.

Fully automatic process with programmable microprocessor controller or PLC. Design includes all necessary safety devices for protection of personnel, installation and environment. Various sizes available for direct heating and circulation of solvent and heat transfer oil heating. Solvent recovery accessories available optionally for units with heat transfer oil heating.

Initial cleaning in a multi-step cleaning process.

 

Vacuum Cleaning

Removal of polymers by thermal energy (ΔH) under vacuum. Standard design for complete removal of all typical fiber and film polymers as PET, PBT, PA, PC, PU, PE, PP and others from machine parts. Special designs for removal of other specific polymers available upon request. Moderate process conditions preserve material and performance of cleaned machine parts. Units require electrical power and water only.

Fully automatic process with programmable microprocessor controller or PLC for minimum requirement of manpower. Design includes all necessary safety devices for protection of personnel, installation and machine parts to be cleaned. No environmental pollution with additional exhaust gas treatment. Various sizes available for horizontal and vertical loading.

Chemical Cleaning

Effective removal of all kind of foreign matter, especially inorganic contamination, from filter elements, spin packs, melt pumps and other machine parts by forced flow of hot chemical fluids through the system. Standard design for use of caustic (OH) and acidic chemicals (H+) and agents including additives. Special designs for removal of other specific contamination or use of special chemicals available upon request. Fully automatic process with programmable microprocessor controller for minimum requirement of manpower. Various sizes with electrical, steam or heat transfer oil heating available.

Chemical cleaning follows after vacuum cleaning or solvent cleaning in a multi-step cleaning process.

 

High Pressure Backflushing

Proprietary system for optimum finish cleaning of cylindrical filter candles. Standard design acts by high pressure water jet backflushing and simultaneously creates centrifugal forces (F = m ⋅ r ⋅ ω2) in the backflushing fluid and in the foreign matter inside the pores of the filter media.
Cleaning results are unreached by other finish cleaning systems.
Fully automatic process with programmable microprocessor controller for cleaning of single filter elements.
Systems available for various filter candle dimensions and variable systems for different candle dimensions.

High pressure backflushing follows after chemical deaning in a multi-step cleaning process.

 

 

Bubble Point Test

Portable system and complete test stations for bubble and air flow test of various kind of filter elements.
Standard design and components optimised for easy-handling, accurate measurement and clear readings.
Stainless steel tanks for immersion of filter elements.
Efficient integrated test liquid vapour exhaust system optionally available for safe operation at test stations.
Pneumatically operated handling system for filter leaf discs.
Systems available for various filter element types and dimensions incl. combined systems for candles and leaf discs.

Bubble point test and air flow test follows after high pressure backflushing as finish cleaning in a multi-step cleaning process.

 

Further Supplies for Cleaning Installations

Various kind of accessories required at cleaning installations and workshops. Typical standard accessories are jet cleaners, precision balances, storage tanks for cleaning solvents, chemical and agents, pumps and more. Customised accessories are complete ultrasonic cleaning systems for filter leaf disc and spinneret cleaning, hydraulic presses for disc filter assembly, turning and handling devices for filter assemblies and special tools for assembly and disassembly of filters. Computer databases for storing ond keeping of filter test data including evaluation of cleaning history and prediction of filtration cycle times. Engineering and consulting service for planning and layout of cleaning installations and workshops, implementation of processes for cleaning of filters, spin packs ond other machine parts, training of personnel at FilaTech or customer installations. Consumables as gaskets required for filter and spin pack assembly or installation, spin pack filter mesh packs and customised articles.
