Ultrasonic cleaning
For ship parts maintenance

At BRIO Ultrasonics we have over 20 years of experience in machines and installations for ship maintenance. We have specific solutions for the cleaning of naval parts and components, with standard and customised projects. We cover all the cleaning requirements of the sector, complying with the most demanding safety regulations.

Our exclusive technology achieves a total cleaning of the parts with a remarkable improvement in energy efficiency, longer life and shorter washing times compared to other systems. With lower consumption, BRIO machines achieve optimum results in very short times, providing great savings to naval maintenance workshops. Below we share with you an article from an expert publication on the naval industry 'Buques y equipos de la Marina Civil' in which our technology is highlighted.

BRIO ultrasonic cleaning performs a complete and deep cleaning that reaches all complex points of the parts geometry. In this way, limestone, carbon, oxides, grease, oil and paint are removed from components such as cylinder heads, exchangers, intercoolers, pistons, liners, valves and others. It is a contaminant free process that does not require labor during its execution, and whose design can be adapted to the size of any piece, whether it is a heat exchanger or a 2 ton cylinder head.

Our machines can be found in the main naval workshops in Spain and worldwide, such as those belonging to Coterena, Barloworld Finanzauto (Caterpillar), Tanaval, Servalci, Metalships & Docks, Mecanasa and Astilleros Rías de Avilés. Internationally, we have machines installed in workshops of MWM-Caterpillar (Mannheim-Germany), West Sea (Viana do Castelo - Portugal) among others.

Expert publications in the naval maintenance sector have echoed our ultrasonic cleaning machines and their exclusive technology. We invite you to read the article dedicated to us by the magazine Buques y Equipos de la Marina Civil.

Tailor-made solutions 
For naval parts cleaning and maintenance

At BRIO ultrasonics we have experience in treating all types of parts in the naval industry, but there are some that stand out for needing a solution to a specific problem. Some of them are the following:

Engine block

The engine blocks must be in a perfect state for reassembling all engine components after cleaning and maintenance. In addition to accumulations of grease, carbon etc., iron engine blocks can also rust. Our ultrasonic cleaning system achieves a total degreasing and decarbonisation of the part, recovering it 100%. In addition, our machines completely remove corrosion, rust and paint to leave the iron clean and ready for repainting.

Cooling circuit and heat exchanger

The heat exchangers have a tubular element with holes through which the salt water circulates and which is responsible for cooling. These long and thin holes, together with the rest of the salt water circuit, end up getting blocked due to incrustations or the salinity itself. It can also happen that undesirable elements are deposited in the cooling circuit such as: balanides, crustaceans, molluscs, oxide, calcium, slime and any mineral deposit. Our ultrasonic cleaning system completely removes all these impurities and incrustations.

Plate coolers

The high heat flow through the plate walls can be significantly reduced by the formation of various types of sediment on the wall surface. Our system quickly and efficiently removes all the accumulations, completely recovering all the plates.
