MTC-4 Multi-configuration Ultrasonic Parts Washer      

Zenith's MTC-4 is a four-tank ultrasonic parts washer that is suitable for most four-step processing requirements where cleaning, rinsing, and drying of parts is required.

The MTC-4 comes in two standard configurations; clean/rinse/rinse/dry, or clean/rinse/rust dip/dry. The clean/rinse/rinse/dry system is ideal for applications that require zero-residue cleaning results and parts drying. The clean/rinse/rust dip/dry system features one ultrasonic cleaning tank, 1 rinse tank, a rust preventative dip tank, and 1 drying tank.

Both MTC-4 configurations can be used with automation systems including our TRANSTAR Automation System, or exclusive MBT Automation System.

Both systems can be adapted to meet specific 4-stage processing requirements if the standard design is not appropriate for your needs.

Like all Zenith cleaning machines, the MTC-4 is manufactured out of the best available high grade materials. Standard features include stainless steel access panels, particulate filtration and digital cycle timers, all of which add to the convenience and longevity of the operating system and cleaning agents.  Tanks are fabricated using 316 stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance.

In addition, ball valves are used on drain and fill ports to facilitate the manipulation of liquids used during processing.

For ease of access and use, and to help avoid corrosion, the control panel is housed in a NEMA4X fiberglass electrical enclosure.

How the Parts Washer works

Step 1: Cleaning:

The first stainless steel tank is used for ultrasonic cleaning, and includes the components required to remove contaminants from part surfaces.  For the best results and for most applications, we recommend our patented CROSSFIRE multiple frequency ultrasonic system.

A high-efficiency heater is used to heat the ultrasonic cleaning tank which features a digital temperature controller so that bath temperature is continuously displayed.

Particles and contaminants are automatically removed by means of Zenith's particulate filtration system – thus helping to increase the longevity of the cleaning agent. Filters are conveniently housed for easy removal and servicing.  Surface skimming options are also available to prevent re-deposition of contaminants back onto parts when removed from the tanks.

Finally, the ultrasonic cleaning cycle is switched off when complete by means of the digital ultrasonic timer which comes as a standard feature of both MTC-4 systems, or by the included optional MBT or TRANSTAR Automation Systems.

Steps 2 and 3: Rinsing and/or rust prevention:

Most commonly, the second and third stainless steel tanks are used for primary and secondary submersion rinsing operations.

In this configuration, the system can provide zero-residue cleaning results when the second rinse tank is supplied with purified or deionized water. In rinse/rinse configurations, tanks are designed in Reverse Cascade Overflow Format which greatly reduces the consumption of water since both rinse tanks share the same water supply.

In clean/rinse/rust dip/dry systems the second tank can be manufactured for use as a dipping bath for immersing parts in rust preventative fluids to prevent corrosion of such parts.

Step 4: Drying:

The fourth tank features a partially-recirculating, high volume drying system. This includes a core electric heater and blower that direct hot air straight to the cleaned parts, thus maximizing drying speed. Parts are dried more by air volume than by excessive heat which means that operators can handle parts baskets soon after completion of the drying process, without the need for a lengthy cooling period. The system also includes a 4" gated exhaust to channel moist air out of the drying tank and a stainless steel cover to keep the drying environment contained. A specifically designed air duct system prevents liquids from entering into the system.
