Aqueous cleaning helps meet SED obligations
25 January 2013
Production of specialist aircraft components requires the highest level of cleanliness and, at Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems, this requirement is met by aqueous cleaning technology from MecWash Systems. Meggitt m
Meggitt makes continuous use of two MecWash Midi units - one in the new build area, the other in the repair and overhaul department. In both cases, production is not only meeting extreme cleanliness objectives, but addresses the requirements of the Solvent Emissions Directive.
Terry Aubrey, team leader at Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems' Coventry premises says: "There is a wide variety of component sizes, shapes and materials used, all of which we wanted to pass through the cleaning system via a single button operation.
"We worked closely with MecWash to develop a series of basket and divider sections to allow us to process all loads, irrespective of size and make up, through a common 20min cycle." A vacuum drying system is built into the design and units are fitted with Aqua-Save waste water processing system.
