Immersion or dip cleaning is typically utilized in low production, batch processes. Agitation is generally employed with the chemistry to improve cleaning of the part and removal of the soils. Multiple stage immersion washers drain solutions back to various tanks to enhance the cleaning process, and these tanks can be heated and filtered.
The Trimac Legacy
In 1986, Kemac Power Spray Systems was founded to manufacture aqueous (water based) cleaning equipment. Its mission was to solve the growing problem manufacturers were having using solvents to clean their parts. Because of environmental concerns, manufacturers wanted to find a way to maintain the same cleanliness standards but without the generation of hazardous waste from the solvent disposal. Kemac’s designs were to clean parts from precision to industrial applications using water-based cleaning. Kemac being one of the first aqueous parts washer manufacturers, soon had shipped machines worldwide. As the company grew, it also expanded its product range from cabinet designs for batch cleaning to flow through washers for inline applications.
