mycon and Kipp Umwelttechnik offer efficient cleaning for rail technology

Efficient heat exchanger cleaning with JetMaster

The rail technology sector has already been using mycon GmbH’s highly-effective JetMaster cleaning system for cleaning heat exchangers under, in and on trains for many years. JetMaster makes the process of cleaning fin heat exchangers better, faster and more environmentally friendly, thus enabling significant savings in operating costs. The product works additive-free with 0.2-0.75l of water per minute. mycon now also offers automated solutions for the field.

Process for cleaning and stripping axles and bogies

mycon now also offers new processes for the rail technology sector, such as for stripping axles, bogies and other surfaces of paint. A special system enables bogies, engines and other surfaces to be cleaned and degreased – in a completely water-free process. The cleaning fluid used is recyclable. All processes can be used manually or automatically.

mycon devices also successful in Asia

A large rail company in Asia was also impressed by trials of mycon GmbH’s latest developments. As well as the JetMaster devices for cleaning fin heat exchangers, the trials also included new cleaning processes for manual or fully-automated stripping of axles and bogies, as well as for the water-free cleaning of bogies and other oily and greasy surfaces. There are also plans for a robot-automated under-train cleaning system using mycon GmbH’s new cleaning system. The cleaning fluid used in the planned system can be used multiple times and ultimately recycled.
