Environmentally Friendly Cleaning with Light Reduces Costs

The innovative laser cleaning systems produced by Cleanlaser Systems from Germany, come to the UK. Used throughout the world for industrial and restoration cleaning, the equipment offers power and versatility, uses no water or chemicals and has the lowest cleaning running costs.

(PRWEB) June 17, 2005 -- CIProcess Ltd, the UK-based, innovative Cleaning and Process Systems company, announces that it is the exclusive distributor in the United Kingdom of laser cleaning systems produced by Clean Laser Systems in Aachen, Germany.

Developed over the last 10 years, the innovative laser cleaning systems combine power and versatility, with the lowest operating cost of all industrial cleaning methods. They offer a safe cleaning method and are environmentally friendly, using no water or chemicals and producing no effluent.

Primarily used for industrial cleaning and surface treatment, renovation and paint removal applications they also remove contaminants, production residue and coatings without damaging the substrate. Metallic and reflective surfaces are ideal although other substrates can be addressed.

Operating costs are reduced, through downtime minimization, low running costs and life span extension, with ROI paybacks of fewer than 12 months often achieved. They are easy to automate and can be integrated into existing manufacturing lines, to be used on-line and in-place without damaging equipment or requiring machine dismantling.

In use with leading companies and governments throughout the world, there are over 65 Cleanlaser systems in operation. Standard units are available in 120-W and 500-W versions, in portable or stationary versions, and special designs are also available.

Dave Adams, the technical director of CIProcess, reports "Laser cleaning is a precise, cost-effective method for cleaning when traditional methods fall short. Cleaning lasers are adept at removing additives, colorants, grease, rust, and other contaminants, while also minimizing abrasion and heat build-up.”

The Nd:YAG pulsed, solid-state lasers direct a high precision programmable scanning beam of up to 0.5mm diameter. The cleaning surface reflects laser energy and is minimally affected, however, any contaminants on the surface absorb the laser energy and are quickly vaporized, with any fumes or particulates removed by an in-built filter.

The cleaning stops when the contaminant is consumed, and consequently there is a minimal heat build-up, avoiding the microscopic roughening and cracking of metal surfaces that can be present when using traditional cleaning methods.

Cleanlaser systems are currently in use in the automobile, aerospace, bakery, food, electronics, restoration and other industries. New applications are constantly emerging and clients are invited to discuss their applications and submit their products and processes for testing in Cleanlaser’s laboratories.

The Cleanlaser systems are part of CIProcess’s extensive range of innovative cleaning and processing equipment including CIP/COP systems, innovative blast cleaning systems, skids, electrical and hygienic installations.
