Wire cleaning by BH-S system

The 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. Applications  include wire cleaning  from solid lubricant residue,  or other contaminants (rust and scale), prior to  galvanising, metallic coatings, Al or Cu cladding,  heat treatment,  etc,  and wire rod cleaning prior to drawing.

The 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 processes, 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 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, the  BH-S is a smooth and sensitive multi-layer micro-shaving/ abrading  that finely impacts the wire surface, separating lubricant residue or other contaminants from the base material, removing dispersed contaminants by moving wire, exiting the unit  extra clean of white-metal appearance at extreme speed, operating at virtually zero energy consumption.
