PARTS WASHING FOR THE FLEXO & GRAVURE INDUSTRY:

Elevate your print quality

The fully automatic washing units are designed for easy handling of press parts. It is possible to wash doctor blade chambers, ink trays, ink sumps and other removable press parts used with all types of inks, varnishes etc. The units can be equipped with a trolley, which makes the handling even easier.

Custom-built to fit your needs

The Parts Washers from Flexo Wash have a Wash & Rinse system with two separate tanks which offers an automatic two-stage cleaning process, where the first stage is for cleaning and the second stage is for rinsing.

The parts are cleaned by various high-pressure nozzles, spraying cleaning and rinse liquid from below and above.

All units can be customized according to each customer’s specific needs. They are made with a moving nozzle arm, which ensures a more dynamic liquid flow, a higher pressure and thus an improved wash result.

3 TYPES OF CLEANING METHODS:

Different needs - different techniques

Different needs require different techniques. Therefore, the Flexo Wash EasyLoad & FrontLoad parts washers can all be built to clean with solvents, alkaline liquids or eco-friendly cleaning liquids and distillable eco-friendly liquids.
Factors like ink types, thickness of ink layers, installation space etc. determines which kind of PK unit you should choose. Below you will find brief info of each type of cleaning method.

ATEX certifications and requirements

When cleaning with solvent, special precautions must be taken in order to completely neutralize the risk of explosion or fire in the immediate area. Flexo Wash takes these precautions by delivering washing equipment according to the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Flexo Wash collaborates with notified bodies for approval of the equipment, ensuring that each unit is safe being EEX-proof according to the ATEX standard and certified by ExVeritas.
