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.

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.
