Parts and components cleaning


We design and build machines who will meet the needs and constraints of the railway industry
  • Cleaning of very large and massive parts

  • Removal of significant and persistent contamination

  • Heavy duty systems that meet significant constraints

  • Repeatability of results by continuous fluid treatment

Work together to solve our cleanliness customer issues with the best / appropriate cleaning solution

Industrial cleaning machines for maintenance of high-speed trains, conventional trains, underground and trams

For the cleaning of massive railway parts such as bogies or axles, we design and manufacture machines with large useful dimensions and capable of supporting loads of severals tons.

Intensive cleaning

Railway parts such as bearings are heavily polluted with grease and sludge.

To remove these contaminations, a skillful combination of process parameters like temperature, mechanical action, time and chemistry are essential.

Cleaning of railway running gear

Repeatability of degreasing

High volume greases and sludges quickly saturated the closed-loop degreasing solution.

To ensure a high degreasing quality and to increase the life of detergent solution, our cleaning machine for the railway business include bath system treatment such as a degreaser – decanter and a dredge to scrap the sludges deposited on the bottom of the tank.
