Over the years, our designers and sales staff have studied thousands of different cleaning and washing applications, and their associated problems. With this experience behind us, we are able to offer you the best solutions to different cleaning processes.

Our aim is zero defects between the cleaning machine and the rest of your production line. For railway applications we are offering high-quality bogie, wheelset and part washers for engine blocks, traction motors, bearings and other components of the industry.

Flexible production

By using equipment with the latest technology, operated by highly skilled personnel, it is possible for us to produce tailor-made and complex metal parts washers as well as a comprehensive standard range. There are more than 20 standard models in the range; both spray and full-flow cleaning machines.

One of the best in

Our primary aim is to be the best in component cleaning. Aqua Clean has an excellent international reputation among users who are not only looking for technical solutions to their cleaning problems but also an effective and recent production method. Our high demand for quality and good technical solutions are important reasons behind our success.

Services and partners

Aqua Clean was founded in 1993, in Finland. Today there are Aqua Clean distributors in over 20 countries throughout Europe, the North America and Asia. We have agreements with DST-Kemi, from Denmark, which produce detergents.

AS single-stage machines

AS-machines are intended for the aqueous cleaning of small and medium sized components, when a single-stage cleaning process is sufficient to fulfil the cleanliness requirements. They are mainly used in the engineering industry, vehicle garages and rail workshops for the cleaning of metal components contaminated with oil, grease or solid particulates.

AS machines are manufactured in stainless steel, insulated with mineral wool and covered with stainless steel cover panels. The machine consists of an insulated, enclosed cabinet with a rotating spray system, a load carriage, a hinged door and a tank system. The hinged door acts as a load platform when in the open position.

The cleaning process is carried out via a rotating spray system with built-in nozzles. Hot cleaning liquid is sprayed onto the components from all directions with a high mechanical effect. The liquid is then filtered and re-circulated.

AC single-stage machines

AC single-stage cleaning machines are intended for the aqueous cleaning of medium and large components, when a single-stage cleaning process is sufficient for the cleanliness requirements. The cleaning machines are mainly used in the production engineering industry, vehicle garages and rail workshops.

AC machines are manufactured in stainless steel, insulated with mineral wool and covered with stainless steel cover panels. The machine consists of an insulated, enclosed cabinet with a rotating spray system, a load carriage, a lifting door and a tank system. A load platform or trolley is placed in front of the cleaning machine for loading.

The process is carried out via a rotating spray system with built-in nozzles. Hot detergent liquid is sprayed onto the components from all directions with a high mechanical effect. The liquid is then filtered and recirculated

When the length of the component to be cleaned is much longer than its width the AC range can be supplied with an oscillating spray system OSC.

Multi-stage cleaning machines

AC multi-stage part washers are intended for the cleaning of medium and large sized components, where the cleanliness requirements are more demanding. They are used in rail maintenance workshops for cleaning of bogies, wheel sets, diesel engines and bearing housings.

Machines are used for cleaning and rinsing of machined components prior to assembly. Compressed air blow-off and drying can be applied where necessary. The cleaning process is carried out via a rotating spray system with built-in nozzles. Hot detergent liquid is sprayed from all directions onto the components with a high mechanical effect.

Multi-stage machines are manufactured in stainless steel, insulated with mineral wool and covered with stainless steel cover panels. The machine consists of an insulated, enclosed cabinet with a rotating spray system, a load carriage, a lifting door and a tank system. A load platform or a load trolley is placed in front of the cleaning machine for loading. The AC range can be automated and integrated into a production line.

When the length of the component to be cleaned is much longer than its width the multi-stage range can be supplied with a reciprocating spray system.

BRC cleaning machines

Aqua Clean BRC cleaning machines are intended for the aqueous cleaning of components in baskets. Complicated components are placed in a rotating basket in the machine. Our BRC machines are mainly used within the manufacturing industry as a final process with high cleanliness requirements and used in maintenance rail workshops for cleaning of bearings and bulk parts.

Flooding and spray cleaning

Flooding occurs by spraying cleaning liquid with a high flow and pressure into the bath. The flooding and spraying process creates a strong turbulence and this combination of strong turbulence and a rotating basket results in the cleaning liquid penetrating effectively into inaccessible channels, openings, blind holes etc. This cleans, effectively, even the most complicated component geometry.

Cleaning process

Aqua Clean BRC cleaning machines are intended for an aqueous cleaning process, consisting of cleaning and rinsing. Blow off and drying can be applied when necessary.

BRC machines are manufactured in stainless steel insulated with mineral wool and covered with stainless steel cover panels. The machine consists of an insulated, enclosed cabinet with a rotating fixture for the basket, a fixed spray system, one lifting door and a tank system. The cleaner can be equipped with a load platform or a manual roller conveyor.
