Hydraulic systems demand the highest standards regarding the cleanliness of hose and pipe assemblies. However, abrasion during the cutting and crimping of hoses causes the formation of chips or scales, which must not be present, as specified in ISO 4406 and NAS 1638. Therefore, in addition to its hose crimpers, UNIFLEX also offers special cleaning devices to solve this problem.
The cost-effective and environmentally friendly tabletop RG 10 is a must-have device for hose production workshops. It features a large water tank, diaphragm pump and 10-μm pressure filter. Cleaning is accomplished by a closed water circuit with a neutral cleaning emulsion instead of expensive pellets that are used in comparable devices.
With its different-sized flushing heads as standard equipment, the RG 10 is suited for all types and sizes of hose and pipe assemblies up to a 2 in. (50.8 mm) inner diameter and up to 20 m hose length. When used in strict compliance with its operating instructions, the RG 10 can achieve the cleanliness required by NAS and ISO specifications. This is essential for hose assembly manufacturers that need to document and verify the level of cleanliness.
The flushing cones direct the non-corrosive water/cleaning emulsion and the down-stream high-pressure air (7 bar) to remove any chips or scales. The robust, 160 kg worktable with its outer dimensions of 2000 x 840 x 1050 mm offers a working area of 1600 x 800 mm. The tank has a maximum capacity of 215 l, and neutral cleaners and anti-corrosion emulsions can be added to the water as cleaning agents. The pneumatic drive is equipped with a diaphragm pump and 10 µm pressure filter. The drive uses an air pressure of 7 bar with a maximum air consumption of 250 SLM and a flow rate of 180 lpm.
