Wire cleaning by BH-S system
Wire cleaning by BH-S system

BH-S is a green dry-cleaning process of great potential used in-line in the most demanding applications, allowing the highest cleaning speed with all steel wires (including 0.90%C), mechanically descaled or acid cleaned, bare or pre-coated, drawn with calcium and sodium lubricants. Applicationsinclude wire cleaning from lubricant residue, or other contaminants, prior to galvanising, metallic coatings, Al or Cu cladding, heat treatment, etc, and rod cleaning prior to drawing.

BH-S system is particularly recommended for cleaning applications in which a conventional process is inappropriate, especially with wires drawn upon severe conditions resulting in increased heat and burned lubricant tightly bound to the wire surface and embedded in micro-cavities.

Basically, BH-S is a smooth and sensitive multi-layer micro-abrading system that finely impacts wire surface separating lubricant residue from base material, evacuating away dispersed contaminants by moving wire, exiting the unit extra clean of white-metal appearance, at extremely high speed not limited by BH-S cleaning process, operating at virtually zero energy consumption.

Development of the BH-S wire dry cleaning system provides the ultimate combination of simplicity and effectiveness, replacing the most costly operations in wire cleaning process, including replacement of acid, ultrasonic and other wet chemicals, generating substantial cost savings, environmental benefits and improvement in productivity of clean H/C and L/C wires.

The same BH-S system can be used in wet configuration for cleaning and degreasing by heating the water to ensure effective removal of oily surface contamination.
