Rotajet Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks and Multistage Systems Used for Component Cleaning in the Aerospace Industry.
Rotajet manufacture ultrasonic cleaners and ultrasonic multistage systems for a large number of applications in the aerospace industry, from new parts manufacture to overhaul. Below is a brief outline of the various applications for Rotajet ultrasonic cleaning systems:
New parts cleaning:
Rotajet bench top ultrasonic cleaners are used for small component degreasing and cleaning, for large components, Rotajet manufacture a range of industrial ultrasonic cleaning tanks, these machines are ideally suited to cleaning and degreasing larger aerospace components, two stage wash and DI rinse ultrasonic machines are typically used, to avoid any staining on the machined surfaces Rotajet can also fit a additional fresh water purge. The wash solutions can be monitored using pH or conductivity, and all readings data logged for traceability. Rotajet will supply the machines with a suitable aerospace approved degreasing chemical along with all test and control methods for the wash solution.
If the components are too large for the standard Rotajet ultrasonic cleaning machines, Rotajet can manufacture bespoke machines to accommodate the larger sizes.
New parts crack detection:
The Rotajet ultrasonic machines are used for degreasing and cleaning aerospace components prior to dye penetration crack detection. The multistage ultrasonic systems are fitted with four stages, wash, rinse, fresh water rinse and dry. In areas were the water is hard and contains high levels of calcium salts, the final rinse is normally passed through ion exchange resins to reduce the dissolved salt levels in the rinse water. In NDT application the machines are fitted with water monitoring and data logging features.
For larger components which the standard ultrasonic cleaning and degreasing machines will not accommodate, Rotajet manufacture bespoke machines.
Prior to any repair or maintenance the components need to clean and free from any surface contamination. Rotajet manufacture a range of ultrasonic cleaning equipment for removal of surface coatings, carbon deposit, paint, etc….
The standard range of Rotajet parts washers are typically used for the initial cleaning and removal of heavy deposit of oil, grease, dirt etc…from the components prior to stripping down. Once initially wash and degreased in the Rotajet parts washers, the parts are stripped into individual component parts, these are then cleaned and degreased again prior to inspection using a Rotajet ultrasonic washing system. The operation may be performed in ultrasonic cleaning machines or a combination of spray washers and ultrasonic cleaners, depending on the component being maintained.
If components will not fit into standard Rotajet spray washing and ultrasonic machines, bespoke machines can be manufactured.
Rotajet will supply the machines with a suitable aerospace approved degreasing chemical along with all test and control methods for the wash solution.
