Component Cleaning System

HUSCO International, developer and manufacturer of hydraulic and electrohydraulic controls, has installed another MecWash Midi component cleaning system. It now has a total of nine MecWash systems, with five being in U.S. manufacturing plants.

The Midi and its replacement system, the MWX400, clean hydraulic control valves used in off-highway applications, including agricultural machinery, materials handling and construction.

HUSCO Senior Manufacturing Engineer Mike Gandy commented, "Our customers trust us to deliver precision engineered parts manufactured to the very highest specifications. HUSCO's global reputation is recognition of our unwavering commitment to quality, and this applies to all aspects of our supply chain."

Gandy continued, "Solid particle contamination can interfere with the lubrication process in hydraulic fluid systems - causing wear to the components can result in additional maintenance and repair costs, and a substantial decrease in the system's service life. Worn components can lead to parts seizing, higher fluid temperatures, leaks and reduced control. Contamination can also damage the system's fluid by accelerating oxidation - again resulting in inefficient operation.

"All of our parts must be free from contamination before they reach the assembly line. The MecWash machines are renowned within the hydraulic industry for achieving high cleanliness, which is the main reason we continue to invest in MecWash technology."

MecWash Managing Director John Pattison said, "The Midi and MWX400 are the ideal choice for cleaning components used in hydraulic and pneumatic systems. They have been specifically designed to process complex and intricate machined parts that require very high standards of cleanliness, surface finish and dryness and can incorporate a range of functionality including ultrasonic, high flow washing, rinsing, dedicated jetting and vacuum drying.

"The Midi and MWX400 provide 24/7 reliability, which is absolutely imperative in the demanding industries in which they are used."
