Cleaning compound for profile- and tube extrusion
|The multitude of colour- and material changes, and the ever shorter production runs caused by Just-In-Time production require an effective and efficient cleaning compound.|
Quality demands for extruded products require production without black specks, while the production planning gets overloaded. ECONOCLEAN cleans extruders thoroughly and quickly, and through preventive maintenance you save a considerable amount of time before producing high quality products again. While producing less scrap in the meantime !
Through the unique formulation of ECONOCLEAN it also reaches into the dead corners of the extruder and the screw. Residues of previous production or black specks, caused by burnt material, will be removed from screw, die and cylinder by ECONOCLEAN. Also pigments and certain additives that have a natural tendency to adhere to metal surfaces, will be removed thoroughly.
Even when pulling the screw for inspection, you can reduce the time needed for cleaning considerably by cleaning it first with ECONOCLEAN.
|Less downtime||ECONOCLEAN works effective, and reduces the need for pulling the screw.|
|Shorter start-up time||ECONOCLEAN removes black specks effectively, making the start-up phase for the next run shorter, causing|
|Reduced loss of material||through shorter start-up periods, and |
|Less cleaning compound||ECONOCLEAN needs only 1½ to 2 times the cylinder contents for an effective cleaning.|
|Concentrated||ECONOCLEAN is available in ready-for-use formulations, but also as a concentrate.|
|Econoclean has already proven its effectiveness with commonly used materials like HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, EVA, PA, EAA, EMA, PP, PET/PBT, PC, PS, EVOH, TPE, PVC etc.|

|ECONOCLEAN||is a resin that is as easily processable as plastics.|
|ECONOCLEAN||is composed of materials that have the GRAS classification (FDA norm for Generally Recognized As Safe).|
|ECONOCLEAN||is odourless, also when processed. No special precautions are required.|
|The residue is a plastic with inert minerals, which can be processed as such.|
|ECONOCLEAN||is available in 25 kg quantities, in recyclable carton boxes with a plastic liner.|
|ECONOCLEAN will foam slightly in the extruder, so it reaches into the dead corners of the extruder and die. Burnt residues are released from screw and cylinder wall through a chemical reaction, and extruded by the purging properties of ECONOCLEAN. ECONOCLEAN also has a polishing (NOT abrasive) effect, which leaves the surfaces inside the extruder clean and smooth.|
Regular preventive maintenance controls the building up of burnt residues, and makes every cleaning more effective.
