Thermal cleaning in the WIWOX® IGS thermal system at up to 500° C removes all organic residues, even from fine drill holes. Depending on the melting and decomposition point of the residues, they are either melted or pyrolysed. The resulting exhaust air during the carbonization phase is burned in the afterburner chamber at over 850° C.
Cleaning in the pyrolysis process requires subsequent post-cleaning. Inorganic components, oxidation residues, corrosion, etc. remain on the tool surface and must be removed. The ultrasonic process with acidic or alkaline cleaning media or the blasting process with organic and mineral abrasives are suitable for this purpose.
