Wide Application of Horizontal Automatic washer Used in Glass Industry
With the fast development producing industry and glass manufacturing, glass deep processing industry in addition has developed extensively. This article mainly describes the wide sandton glass application of flat glass automatic washer in the glass industry.
- Concept of glass automatic washer
As the special equipment applied in glass industry, glass washing machines are used for cleaning and drying original glass sheets. According to cleaning method, it can be known vertical glass washer(vertical glass washing machine) and horizontal glass washer dryer. Because of the constraint of glass size and vertical structural, at present vertical glass automatic washer is major used for producing I. H. unit with aluminum spacer. The horizontal glass automatic washer, although it takes more area, has been applied in more extensive fields for its more high efficiency and excellent structure.
- Wide application of flat glass automatic washer
Now we majorly introduce the wide application of horizontal glass automatic washer.
(1). Cleaning application for ordinary glass
The cleaning process of flat washer dryer for ordinary glass is simple relatively. The tanks can be feed with industrial water without heating. Because the surface of glass will never be made any treatment, there is no special dependence on the brushes on the glass washer dryer. At the same time, there is also no too restrictive dependence on water PH. About the air cutlery design, we can adopt normal structural but must be sure the wind power can be adjusted. When we clean the glass with thickness 3-19 mm, the design of distance between rollers can not be considered making too large. Generally speaking, the manufacturer could use middle or small automatic washer to do the cleaning and drying job for raw little bit of ordinary glass.
(2). Cleaning application for warm-edge insulating glass
For the production of warm edge insulating glass (with flexible spacer, such as duralite or duraseal or superspacer), the cleaning requirements to the raw glass sheets are higher. Operators should ensure the good cleaning and drying for surface in order to handily make the spacer bonding for the following steps, meanwhile, avoiding surface scratch. For most developed countries and areas in the world, in order to make the entire warm edge I. H. You, more and more production facilities adopt horizontal automatic washer. This sort cleaning equipment is composed of feeding section, washing section, drying section and output section and in the washing section, there are three tanks which feature of cycling heating water with the suitable PH (6-9), meanwhile, your machine must be installed with high quality plastic transfer rollers to avoid glass scratching. In addition, engineers should design special air cutlery structure applied in drying section of the washer dryer, such as side-by-side multiple wind blade design, and guarantee the enough wind power and make it adjustable, as the best drying result, the air blower can blow hot air. All these considerations can achieve the wonderful drying job: completely cleaning up or throwing out off water in multi-angle and much area. Please also note that in order to match the complete production line, the speed of glass washer dryer also need to be regulated.
Statement: the production process of flexible spacer I. H. normally contains below machines: flat glass automatic washer, flexible spacer assembly table, glass assembly table, heated roller press machine and glass convey table. Total production line has two-side or single side establishment. Glass is presented to glass washer dryer in the horizontal state then starts its first process until to finish hot-press sealing job in heated roller machine. Around the production line, small assistant devices, such as gas filling machine, duraseal spool stand are also equipped.
(3). Cleaning application for protected glass
Before washing coating glass by the horizontal automatic washer, we should take into account the choice of brush and water quality. In cleaning process, the protected glass sheets should not stop under brushes to avoid damaging the film. As the hardness of each brush may be different, we should also check the film after cleaning to confirm that if the brush do some damage on top of glass or not. When we clean the MSVD low-e protected glass, the best way is not to use recycled water, because these films are very sensitive to the PH value, if using recycled water, operators should monitor water PH value constantly.
Using demineralization or deionization water to product protected glass to guarantee no remains when drying glass. However, the technology of this process may increase water corrosive, so we should test the sample water and confirm no adverse reactions occur. In addition, before large-scale production, we also ought to some trial production to determine that if the water can work well in the system.
In real operation, solve the above problems, both horizontal glass automatic washer and vertical glass automatic washer can well complete cleaning and drying job to protected glass
(4). Cleaning application for other glass (such as tempered, laminated and safety glass)
As above glass features of large size, thickness and weight, production facilities often use horizontal automatic washer to finish their cleaning job. For the vertical washer dryer, for its structural limitations, it can not suitable for washing large size glass. By means of choosing appropriate soft brushes and using different air cutlery structure, the horizontal glass washer dryer can fulfill the washing and drying demand for above glass.
- Prospect of horizontal automatic washer
In the last decade, building glass has been developed in the direction of insulating, energy-saving, safety and decoration, so the horizontal washing machines are also improved with the same direction. Particularly after the solar glass, conductive glass, foam glass and other special glass are widely put into market, the factoies put forward higher cleaning requirements to above special glass. The unique performance is that we are not only upgrade or reduce the equipment structure, but also make the unique difference on brush manufacturing, selection of promoting plastic rollers, especially enable the studies of cleaning system and air cutlery structure meet different special requirements. We can expect, along with social development in future, more and more special glasses will come out and the horizontal automatic washer would also be manufactured cooperatively with them and this industry will become more specific, detailed and standard.
