Even though we were impressed with the original Turbex machines, which had given two decades of good service, before replacing them we looked around at cleaning equipment on the market to see what was available. We took a batch of dirty castings to the Turbex technical centre in Alton, where their staff carried out a demonstration in a similar AC-1.7. The parts came out perfectly clean in a cycle time of just under 10 minutes, so we took the decision there and then to invest in this type of equipment.

Ultrasonic cleaning systems
The intermediate and final cleaning of machined components requires ultrasonic cleaning. This removes contaminants such as process residues, oil, polishing compounds, particulate, wax and grease. A variety of liquid maintenance options ensure optimum performance time after time, and an oil separator gives the ability to use de-emulsifying cleaners. The different tank sizes make the units suitable for use in a production or maintenance environment.
Ultrasonic cleaning is ideal for removing large quantities of contamination and for cleaning tasks that require a multi-stage process. The two different multi-frequency fields ensure real flexibility for the range, which allows for high precision cleaning as well as less arduous tasks.
The AC range includes heavy-duty, aqueous front-loading, spray washing machines. They have proved incredibly popular for cleaning and degreasing large, heavy components.
Manufactured from stainless steel, the AC programme comprises single and multi-stage units with options for one, two or three process tanks. Standard sizes range from one to three metres in diameter and up to 4-tonne load weight, although larger machine sizes are also available.
Precision cleaning with rotation
Turbex’s precision cleaning with rotation machines is perfect for cleaning a variety of components, from machined castings to hydraulic blocks to turned parts.
Patented technology, which features the rotation of basket and nozzle systems in the opposite or same direction, sets global standards within the cleaning industry. Our machine models are each based on a high-energy principle, ensuring clean and efficient solutions tailored to your individual cleaning requirements.
The range includes the spray-flood systems of the PALMA, PALMA XL and JAVA, and the spray cleaning systems of the ELBA, KEA, and PURA. The main characteristic of the JAVA, PALMA and PALMA XL series is the patented cleaning and drying technologies.
With over thirty years’ experience providing highly advanced, tailor-made plants to the aluminium and plating industry, Turbex is a leader in the field. Continuous development ensures that we achieve different technological solutions to create improved and more efficient processes for sectors where a precision, fault-free operation is required.
Tartaric sulphuric anodising (TSA) lines are becoming more commonly used in the manufacture of airframe parts. They provide excellent corrosion protection and paint bonding properties for aluminium. Its automated control system also ensures accurate film thickness. TSA offers a reliable and environmentally-friendly anodising option and can be delivered as a new anodising line or as a conversion to older lines.
Tunnel wash systems
The Turbex tunnel wash systems are star performers. Designed for continuous operation, they come with a wide range of optional accessories, which enable us to match the machine to the cleaning application. If you want a consistently high standard of cleaning (and drying if specified), many months between changes of the washing fluid, easy serviceability, and a machine you can rely on, please ask us to visit your site so that we can quote for you.
Solvent cleaning systems
When a large amount of oil and grease needs to be removed, Turbex’s solvent cleaning machines can provide the right solution for your industry. Solvent cleaning produces optimum results every time, for a wide variety of operations. Whether it’s degreasing surfaces, or removing particles and contaminants – such as lubricants, swarf and particulate – our range of solvent cleaning machines and detergents are more than up to the job.
A variety of drying techniques are available, including hot air, infrared and vacuum drying. Through discussion, we can advise on the most cost-effective drying technique for your application.
