More About the Nu/Clean

Touchscreen Controls

Intuitive touchscreen controls make the Nu/Clean inline aqueous cleaners easy to operate. Robust Windows-based software controls and monitors machine functions. Password controls and recipe storage allow engineers to maintain control of production. With optional remote viewing, process control personnel can monitor real-time production.

Conveyor Systems

Our single or dual belt conveyor systems are customizable to your specific product needs. We offer various pitch and mesh sizes, as well as flight, pockets, and special belt coatings. Our innovative silencing shroud at the end of the conveyor makes the Nu/Clean aqueous cleaner the quietest in the industry.

Quick-Disconnect Spray Bars and Interchangeable Nozzles

The quick-disconnect design on the spray bars makes the Nu/Clean aqueous cleaners make it a simple process to remove and replace spray bars for different applications or to perform regular maintenance. Dozens of different nozzle types and sizes are available for use in the Nu/Clean. This flexibility makes it easy to optimize the cleaning process for various product applications, from low standoff PCBs to glass lenses to helicopter blades.

Chemistry Conservation

The Nu/Clean has many features to limit chemistry loss. The use of air curtains on either side of the wash stage help contain the chemistry. Isolation stages prevent chemistry from contaminating the rinse water. Our innovative exhaust system minimizes chemistry vapor loss throughout the machine.

Pumps and Plumbing

Each of the stainless steel pumps used in the Nu/Clean is selected based on achieving the right balance of pressure and flow. Everything is clearly labeled to make operation and maintenance easy.

Blowers and Drying

Our blowers slide out for easy access. We use high-efficiency blowers that provide the maximum results with the least amount of power consumption. Our new IR heater tunnel, available only on the Nu/Clean 800 Series, provides a powerful added drying section for difficult-to-dry products.

Nu/Clean Models

Nu/Clean 800 Series

The Nu/Clean 800 series offers top-of-the-line cleaning. It features incredible wash, rinse, and drying capabilities with plenty of isolation between stages. 15 HP stainless steel pumps offer the right balance of pressure and flow to aid in the removal of residues and contaminants. The air curtain and cascade water knife in the wash section minimize any loss of chemistry. The six air knives (included three heated) in the cleaner powered by two super efficient blowers plus the IR heater tunnel at the end of the drying section provide optimum drying power.

Nu/Clean 600 Series

The Nu/Clean 600 series may be just the right cleaner for your production needs. It has multiple isolation sections to minimize cross-over contamination between prewash, wash, rinse, and drying sections. It is an excellent cleaner for chemistry or water-only processes. The drying section comes standard with six air knives powered by two super efficient blowers, with an option for up to nine air knives powered by three super efficient blowers for even more drying power.

Nu/Clean 300 Series

Our most popular model is the Nu/Clean 318 XL, which is part of our Nu/Clean 300 Series. It features a prewash section for the removal of gross contaminants, followed by a wash section capable of handling chemistry. There is isolation between the wash and rinse sections. A rinse and then a final rinse make sure any contaminants or residual wash solution are removed from the product. A powerful drying section with two super efficient blowers makes sure the product exits fully dry.
