Zenith Ultrasonic Cleaning
Automated Cleaning Systems - Product Line
Advantage Automated Multi-stage Cleaner:Zenith’s patented ADVANTAGE Automation System (US Patent 10,112,221), is designed specifically for industrial cleaning applications and used to automate systems with 2-10 processing tanks. This unique system has been engineered to be easy to operate while simultaneously maximizing the cleaning performance of the machine by including a dedicated oscillation platform on each tank that serves to intermittently oscillate the product being processed DURING the cleaning and rinsing process. In addition, parts are suspended from overhead to maximize ultrasonic performance by eliminating basket structures under the basket which reduce ultrasonic cleaning performance.
Transtar Automated Multi-stage Cleaner:The Transtar Automation System is an overhead pick & place robotic transfer system that engages with baskets using a series of hooks, lifting and transferring them from tank-to-tank one at a time. These systems are the preferred choice in clean-rooms and ultra-critical cleaning applications. 2 different versions are available; Transtar 1 which lifts baskets using an overhead pneumatic cylinder and is more economical and the top- of-the-line Transtar 2 which lifts baskets using a ball screw actuator. Both designs transfer baskets using a servo-motor-controlled transfer device for the highest possible accuracy. Available with 2-10 process tanks and basket rotation
Ulramatic HV:The Ultramatic HV is a high-performance clean/rinse/dry system that includes a number of cleaning and rinsing technologies in a smaller package. Ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic rinsing, spray rinsing, and cleaning/rinsing oscillation are all included, along with amulti-position conveyor which allows queuing of multiple baskets and programmable recipe control.
Ultramatic Clean/Rinse/Dry System:The standard Ultramatic is a lower-volume lower-cost option to our Ultramatic HV and is designed based on Zenith patent #4,409,999. All cleaning, rinsing, and drying takes place in a single ultrasonically-activated tank for the ultimate in convenience and ease of use. Parts do not need to be transferred through multiple tanks making the system perfect for large and heavy parts cleaned at low volumes or other low-volume applications. Fluids can be re-used continuously, or replenished after each cycle with our low-cost NR version.
VORTEX Centrifugal Ultrasonic Cleaner:Designed specifically for high volume zero-residue cleaning of small parts or stampings, the Vortex is an automated clean/rinse/dry system which includes centrifugal rotation in all cycles to virtually eliminate detergent drag-out into rinse baths, eliminate water spotting, and eliminate the drying tank bottleneck which slows the speed of the system. Baskets typically eject every 5-7 minutes continuously, features such as filtration, multi-position conveyors, water quality control and more are all included.
CORONA Clean & Dry System:The Corona is a 2-tank clean & dry system that is designed to clean steel parts or other components not requiring a rinse operation. Parts are cleaned using proprietary cleaning/rust preventative agents and immediately dried thereafter. The cleaning fluid leaves no residues that will interfere with subsequent painting or coating operations and the rust- preventative properties will prevent oxidation on parts prior to coating. This lower-cost automatedsystem is available process are enclosures and exhaust blowers, and a host of other options
AERO-CLEAN Automated Aerospace Cleaner:The Aero-clean is an automated clean/rinse/dry system designed to clean high volumes of complex aerospace parts to zero-residue cleaning results.
Ensures that all blind holes, cavities, and channels in multiple orientations are completely clean, and
includes a multi-position drying tunnel to dry multiple baskets simultaneously. Includes a host of options such as a powered automated multi-position conveyor, random recipe processor, surface particle removal, automatic water quality maintenance, automatic liquid maintenance, filtration, and much more.
SATURN Automated Cleaning & Passivation System:The Saturn series of cleaning & passivation systems are multi-use machines that can rough clean, zero- residue clean, or clean & passivate metal parts.
Baskets requiring any one of these processes can be added at any time. No need to queue particular parts for one of the included proceses This system, available in standard 7-tank or ultra-high-volume 9- tank versions includes both citric and nitric passivation tanks, ultrasonic cleaning and rinsing tanks, and high-efficiency drying tank, along with every conceivable option such as a stainless steel process area enclosure with fume exhaust, automatic rinse quality maintenance, rinse collection & pump drain systems, large touch-screen HMI, internal process area lighting, a TRANSTAR II automation system, automated covers, and much more. Perfect for medical components or those companies requiring cleaning of parts, or cleaning and passivation of parts at any particular time of day.
MTC Multi-stage Cleaning Systems
MTC2 2-tank Cleaning System:
The MTC2 is a 2- tank system that can include a single ultrasonic cleaning tank and single rinse tank. When rinsing isnot required, the 2ⁿd tank can be a drying tank. This system is usable when customers do not require a drying operation. The clean/dry tank combination is usable when customers are cleaning steel parts and need a rust preventative.
MTC3 3-tank Cleaning System:
The MTC3 includes 3 processing tanks which are usually composed of a single ultrasonic cleaning tank, single rinse tank, and a single drying tank. Other tank arrangements such as single cleaning tank and dual cascade overflow rinse tanks are also available when drying is not required.Since the standard clean/rinse/dry arrangement includes only a single rinse tank, water and detergent spots may be present on parts after the process unless a great deal of water is used in the rinse tank to keep detergent levels in check. Not recommended when zero-residue cleaning results are required.
MTC4 4-tank Cleaning System:
The MTC4 is the most popular Zenith multi-stage cleaning system and includes 4 processing tanks; a single ultrasonic cleaning tank, dual cascade overflow rinse tanks, and a drying tank. This system is capable of producing zero-residue cleaning results on parts which are lightly contaminated with typical manufacturing residues such as cutting or machining lubricants, coolants, metal chips and fines, and other similar contaminants. Since 2 rinse tanks are included, the amount of water needed to maintain zero-residue cleaning results is greatly reduced.
MTC5 5-tank Cleaning System:
The MTC5 is another popular Zenith multi-stage cleaning system that includes 5 tanks. 2 different standard formats are available; clean/clean/rinse 1/rinse 2/dry or clean/rinse 1/rinse 2/rinse 3/dry. The dual cleaning tank system is great when your parts are highly contaminated and need 2 ultrasonic cleaning tanks to ensure that all contaminants are removed or when 2 different cleaning fluids are needed for different parts. The triple-rinse system is for ultra-clean application where zero- residue cleaning results are required and the customer wants to reduce water consumption as much as possible
Standard MTC and STC Basket Sizes:All of our multi-tank systems are based on the basket sizes rather than tank sizes since the basket size is most important. Tanks are larger to support the basket sizes listed.
MTC1200: 12” x 10” x 10” height
MTC2000: 20” x 12” x 14” height
MTC2400: 24” x 18” x 15” height
MTC3000: 30” x 22” x 18” height
MTC3600: 36” x 24” x 24” hight
Economy Multi-tank Systems:When your parts loads are less than 30 pounds and you don’t need complex options, the economy multi-tank series might be for you. These systems are manufactured using table-top ultrasonic cleaners which are positioned next to one another to produce a multi-stage cleaning system. Support carts are available to produce a single- piece roll-around design, but multiple power connections are typically required in this series
Custom Multi-stage Systems:Zenith can manufacture multi-stage systems with any number of tanks in any format imaginable as a custom system, and Zenith does not charge extra for customization. We will create a
new set of 3D solid models of your system for your review prior to manufacturing and can design the system to address your specific needs.
