The SITA ConSpector controls the contamination level in cleaning and rinsing baths. An increasing contamination level causes a decreasing cleaning power. A high parts cleanliness despite of an optimal cleaning agent concentration cannot be guaranteed anymore if the bath is contaminated e.g. due to oils or greases.
The light guide rod at the sensor head of the measuring device is immerged in to the sample to be measured. The measurement starts at the touch of one button. The contamination level is displayed within a few seconds. Based on this measuring result, an optimal point of time for bath care actions or preparation of a fresh cleaning solution can be determined.
Failures of treatment measures can be quickly indentified due to continuous bath replenishment. For an easy operation, the measuring value is compared to an individually determined limit value and when exceeding an alarm signal is sent out by the device.
Controlling the bath contamination ensures a high cleaning quality and thus high parts cleanliness for processes in the field of surface coating and surface treatment. Cleaning bath contamination is reproducibly detected due to the fluorescence measurement. Controlling the contamination level allows reliable and efficient process management.
