Industrial Fluidized Baths
Parts immersed into the IFB 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.
Techne offers 7 models in the Industrial Fluidized Bath range. These 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.

IFB-101, IFB-111, IFB-121 and IFB-201 are available in both manual and automatic airflow control.
IFB-131 is only available with automatic airflow control.
Techne can also supply a gas fired AB-100 Afterburner to reduce exhaust particulate and VOC’s. When cleaning PVC’s and other halogenated polymers, the SR-100 Scrubber can be employed.
In addition, Techne can supply extraction fans and cyclones to separate fumes from any aluminum oxide carried over in the exhaust stream.
