Dürr Ecoclean says its new EcoCLab system offers an automated in-line capability for inspecting and documenting particulate cleanliness in compliance with VDA 19.

The company claims its EcoCLab provides a system to perform testing of critical areas on individual parts (eg. crankcases) directly in the manufacturing line. These findings are stored in the system’s memory and can be issued in hardcopy form via an integrated printer.

The EcoCLab software and analytical electronics can be adapted to the specifications of diverse parts and other customer-defined requirements.

The testing system is a modular design and the company says it can be integrated directly into the cleaning system or may be installed at any other point of the manufacturing process.
