The firm's product portfolio includes the Galvatek range of plant for applications such as anodising, chemical cleaning or etching. Galvatek lines can often be found in factories manufacturing aircraft parts and engine components, as well as in the MRO sector. The supply of anodising plant forms a large part of business at Turbex. Such facilities comprise one or several lines, and typically use TSA (tartaric sulphuric acid) or PSA (phosphoric sulphuric acid).

Turbex is also specialist in the supply of aqueous cleaning and drying systems for batch or in-line processing, which will also be promoted at the show. More than 100 standard models in the range include front- and top-loading spray washers, multi-stage automatic or manual ultrasonic systems, benchtop and floor-standing ultrasonic models, precision machines with basket rotation and flood options, and tunnel cleaning lines.

One range of machines uses a world-patented system whereby rotation of the holding basket and spray jets is individually adjustable, allowing them to rotate in the same or opposite directions. Programs can be tailored, together with other movement options such as rocking of the basket, to wash even the most complex parts efficiently, says Turbex.

The equipment is aimed primarily at high-precision applications, with the possibility of simulated cleanroom conditions. Global and targeted cleaning is available in a single process and there will be an announcement on the company’s stand (D1, Hall 11) at Surface World concerning a newly developed feature, vector kinematics.

Another focus will be modular and bespoke high-precision ultrasonic cleaning machines with automation. A hallmark of their construction is multi-frequency ultrasonics, whereby a single transducer can generate two different ultrasonic frequencies. Consequently, dis-similar components and materials can be handled optimally in the same tank.

For processing larger parts, Turbex offers the ACV range of PLC-controlled front loading, spray washing and rinsing models. These machines are popular for degreasing, phosphating, paint removal, de-rusting and descaling, says the company.

Manufactured from stainless steel, the machine programme comprises single- and multi-stage units. Standard sizes range from 1 to 3 m in diameter, although larger dimensions are available. According to Turbex, the equipment provides a high level of cleaning performance due to ingenious design principles combined with elevated liquid flow rates and spray pressures.
