Wire cleaning by GPS/PDH system
Wire cleaning by GPS/PDH system

The GPS/PDH system in cleaning version is a novelty that brings a new dimension to wire cleaning process, benefiting from the unique PDH multi-function technology, enabling an automatic control of crucial process parameters (pressure/temperature/ viscosity, compound injection speed and thermal stability). In cleaning operation, most of these parameters communicate together in an extremely sensitive and automatic multi-way interaction, providing drawn wire in bright glossy finish for plating quality, at high-speed, cleaned and polished to reflective appearance, in-line, with liquid compounds or semi-solid high-viscosity products containing anti-corrosion additives.

The GPS/PDH system is installed in the last draft of adrawing machine to clean drawn wire from lubricant contaminants. It simultaneously performs surface cleaning and polishing effect, providing a high level of cleanliness of dry drawn wire, without the need for aggressive chemicals, and it operates at all practical speeds at virtually zero energy consumption. The main reason behind this achievement has been the cost, wire quality and environment factors.

The GPS/PDH wire cleaning system operates with a wide range of liquid and semi-solid lubricating solutions in continuous IN and OUT motion, evacuating lubricant contaminants out of the compressed chamber in an open or closed circuit, completely eliminating wire tunnelling effect and pressure fluctuation, enabling the highest cleaning speed, up to 12m/s (2,400ft/min). A light draft performs wire cleaning and polishing (reflective finish) in a single pass, clean wire leaving the unit completely dry.

The system is particularly recommended for cleaning applications of wires drawn in severe conditions, resulting in increased heat and burned lubricant tightly bound on the wire surface. The system is compact, and easy to install and to use.
