Chadwick Engineering specializes in the design and fabrication of
solvent based Strip Cleaning Systems. These systems are commonly
used to remove rolling oils and debris from metal strip surfaces. The
solvents are mechanically mixed with the rolling oils and debris and
then flushed away with a solvent rinse. The solvent is removed from
the strip surfaces using squeegee and vacuum rolls.
solvent left on the strip acts as a lubricant to prevent interlayer
scratching in rewound coils. Particulate in the solvent is removed
by a fine particle filter. Rolling oils are removed in a batch
process using a vacuum distillation system.
Our Cleaning Systems are designed for industrial
duty and ease of maintenance. By removing the top cover of the
enclosure, brush and wringer roll modules can be lifted out to
provide maximum accessibility for maintenance.
Two Cleaning System Models are available, a light
gauge continuously threaded model and a heavy gauge self-threading
model. The details of each model are modified to meet a customers
particular requirements for speed, width, gauge, surface sensitivity
and cleanliness requirements. Our Cleaning Systems can be custom
designed to be retrofit into existing finishing lines.
