Efficient and cost-effective cleaning of water circuits

buchem_produkte_056Removing rust and calcification with WSC

The WSC Cleaning System is the latest innovation of Buchem that has been realised together with Matsui, a Japanese manufacturer of mould temperature control units.

The system consists of three elements – WSC-Phase 1, WSC-Phase 2 and the WSC-Unit – and makes short work of rust, magnesium and limescale deposits in mould ducts and heating elements: in eight steps only, you can get rid of deposits that considerably slow down heating and cooling cycles in injection moulding processes and thus lower the production rate and increase the rates of rejects.

The WSC-Unit is the application and filter system for the cleaning process. It contains a pressure and heat-resistant filter housing with integrated fine filter and neodymium magnet to bind coarse rust particles.

The pump of the temperature control unit admixes the cleaning concentrates (WSC-Phase 1 and WSC-Phase 2) to the circulating water and activates the decalcification and rust removal process. The cleaning effect is increased by heating the cycle up to a maximum of 80 °C.

The first cleaning step with WSC-Phase 1 removes limescale, magnesium and rust, and passivates the metal surfaces. The second cleaning step with WSC-Phase 2 neutralises the pH value, rinses out dirt and grease residue, and protects the pipes against corrosion until they are dry.

The result speaks for itself:
