FFB51 and FFB52 industrial fluidized baths are our most popular units due to their economical price and smaller size. They offer a front panel mounted rotameter for adjustment of the fluidizing air flow and are ready for use out of the box with the included charge of aluminum oxide. For years, plastic manufacturers have come to depend on industrial fluidized baths (FFB series) for safe, efficient and cost effective cleaning of tooling, components, systems and parts (i.e. dies, breaker plates, nozzles, tools, tips, spinnerets, extruder screws, manifolds, etc.) The FFB Series will remove almost all polymers, including plastic, paint, epoxy, rubber and adhesives, as well as other hydrocarbon-based products such as oils, fluids, grease, lubricants and coatings. Parts immersed into the FFB series are cleaned by the high temperature (up to 600°C) environment within a bath media of fluidized aluminum oxide that instantly starts to degrade plastic to carbon, which then leaves the bath as CO2. This instant heating and minimized quenching gives shorter cleaning times than with conventional ovens, and with the even and consistent heat of the bath, results in greatly reduced metal fatigue and tool damage. Omega baths can be fluidized with either compressed house air or an inert gas such as nitrogen or argon. It should be noted that fluidized baths and the action created in the aluminum oxide are not abrasive to items immersed for normal cleaning or heat treatment times. Typical cleaning times range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on bath loading, temperature and amount of material to be cleaned. The excellent thermal performances the FFB series make them a good choice for basic heat treatment, test and calibration as well as reactive analysis.
