MecWash Systems’ self-contained Midi aqueous cleaning system is suitable for medical and aerospace applications. The single-chamber rotational cleaning system occupies a relatively small footprint, and the wash chamber can be extended to 60" for longer parts.

The Midi system cleans without solvents or emissions and is effective for large and small components, components with complex geometries and components that require special fixturing as well as standard size baskets that can hold high volumes. The wash chamber can be configured with hundreds of high-volume, 130-gpm jet nozzles. Full rotation of the workload at a speed of 2 to 10 rpm exposes all surfaces to the wash and rinse solutions to ensure effective cleaning, draining and drying. Total cycle times range between 3 and 20 min. depending on the application.

Delicate components can be cleaned using an oscillation program, which gently tips the components from side to side. For complicated components, the degassed ultrasonic wash process is followed by a flood and spray wash, an ultrasonic rinse, a flood and spray rinse, and a high-velocity hot air dry cycle. If necessary, a vacuum dry cycle can follow the hot air dry to pull water out of blind holes and long machined passages.
