FinnSonic Corus - Injection Mould Ultrasonic Cleaner
The Corus units are intended for general maintenance cleaning applications. Tank dimensions are based on Euro pallet standard. Cleaned parts are to be placed into cleaning tank in a wash basket. Each unit is an independent module. Modules can be placed next to each other to form a line with washing, rinsing and drying stages. System can be further complemented with storage tanks, filtration, Ergo Station, chain hoist etc.
FinnSonic Corus HD - Ultrasonic mould cleaner
The Corus HD units are intended for maintenance cleaning of e.g., tools and moulds. Each unit is an independent module. Modules can be placed next to each other to form a line with washing, rinsing and drying stages. Typical process consists of two steps/ tank modules: ultrasonic wash complemented with immersion rinsing/ hot passivation, but Finnsonic hot air dryers are available.
|Model||Wash basket internal dimensions||Load capacity||US effect||Tank volume||Heating effect|

|Corus 240||604 x 400 x h516 mm||200 kg||2.4 kW||262 l||5 kW|
|Corus 360||808 x 600 x h658 mm||300 kg||3.6 kW||670 l||9 kW|

Tank dimensions are based on typical injection mould sizes. Cleaned parts are to be placed into tank either in a wash basket or hung on a lifting beam. Both baskets and lifting beams are compatible with the standard tank designs. System can be further complemented with storage tanks, filtration, Ergo Station, chain hoist etc.
Moulds are handled with lifting beams (optional) matching the dimensions and weight capacity of the cleaning machine. Operator lifts moulds to and from tanks with a hoist (not included). The wash tank is equipped with supports for the lifting beam bearing the mould. Chain hoist can be detached, and lid closed for the duration of the cleaning. In rinse and passivation stages, which are typically a matter of minutes, the lifting beam is supported with the hoist during treatment. Control devices like temperature and treatment time controller and start/stop push button are located on a panel at the front of the tanks.

Process for cleaning injection mould
All the moulds had a 20 minute cycle in the Decoclean 440, immediately after the cycle has completed, remove the mould and place into a rinse tank for 3 minutes, manually dunking several times to ensure a thorough clean. After the cycle has completed, the mould was manually dried with an air supply and dry paper. The process successfully removed a lot of the staining and brought a shine back to the mould.
% Satisfactorily Cleaned: 100%.

Tool 1: The mould was separated and placed into the ultrasonic cleaner face down for 40 min. Immediately after manually dunked in the rinse tank in deionised water and manually dry with air supply.
Tool 2: Again the mould was separated and only one side at a time in the ultrasonic cleaner due to the size of the mould. Initially each side has had an hour, this brought a shine back to the tool and also removes the rubber residue. The tool has some uniform holes formatted around the mouldings. Some of the residue rubber blocking these holes has been removed with the aid of the H14. Immediately after, manually dunk in the rinse tank in deionised water and manually dry with air supply.
Tool 3: The mould was separated and both sides placed into the ultrasonic cleaner for an hour. Immediately after, manually dunked in the rinse tank in deionised water and manually dried with air supply. The H14 has removed some of the staining and residue and also brought a shine back to the mould.
Tool 4: The tools including the two pins were placed in the ultrasonic cleaner for 30 minutes, and immediately after manually dunked in the rinse tank in deionised water and manually dry with air. The H14 has removed staining on the tool and brought a shine back to it.
