Cleaning System Tackles Challenging Airbag Components
When the OEM recommended that the parts be cleaned in a hydrocarbon-type system rather than the aqueous system used by KSWV, the firm opted to purchase a Durr Ecoclean (Wixom, MI) Universal 81C hydrocarbon wash system, as well as a hydrocarbon dip tank from another manufacturer. The 81C features a pressurized self-contained closed-loop system that recycles the hydrocarbon solution. Since cleaning and drying processes occur in a work chamber under vacuum, heating energy is conserved while minimizing vapor loss, emissions and humidity issues. Heat recovery throughout the entire process helps reduce energy input, minimizing energy costs and CO2 emissions.
In addition to removing stamping oil and carbon from stamped parts, the Universal 81C prevents rust from occurring on parts after cleaning. KSWV officials report that no parts cleaned by the Universal 81C have ever failed a cleanliness test.
