MAFAC PALMA

Spray and flood cleaning perfectly combined.

The MAFAC PALMA offers ideal features for process-safe cleaning of sensitive parts with complex shapes. During the wet phase, the operations spray and flood cleaning can be individually combined. Thus high-end cleaning results are achieved. A special quick-flood system allows for full flooding of the cleaning chamber within only 30 seconds.

Optional: Ultrasonic unit for ultrafine cleaning

For applications with very high cleanliness demands, e.g. in the watch-making industry, medical technology and in precision engineering, the system can be equipped with an optional ultrasonic unit. The power layout of the ultrasonic process is perfectly aligned to customer-specific requirements by vernier adjustment. If needed, the PALMA can be equipped with a third tank, e.g. for the integration of an additional rinsing bath within the process.

Energy efficient: Rotating hot air flow drying system

Based on the patented basket-spray frame-rotation, MAFAC has invented a special hot air flow drying system which operates within the rotating system. It is especially designed for high-quality full body drying of complex-shaped parts, in particular for parts with recessed areas, e.g. narrow bevels and undercuts. As a result, process times are reduced while efficiency is increased significantly, due to the enhanced drying performance.

Benefits for the user

  • Patented rotating multi-side spray system with counter-rotating basket pickup system (can be switched off). With specifically arranged nozzles for reliable cleaning results.
  • Two or three large-capacity tanks for long life of the process water.
    Cascade design of tanks for extended life of media.
  • Reduced energy consumption thanks to insulated tanks.
    Separate heating of tanks.
  • Removable swarf filter trays for collecting coarse dirt particles in the return flow from the cleaning/rinsing process.
  • Coalescing oil separation system with integrated surface suction device in tank 1 and
