steps to your cleaning solution
Steps to your Cleaning Solution
  • Midbrook investigates your manufacturing process and tests possible cleaning methodologies in our technology center to find the one combination best suited to your production needs.
  • We then take your requirements and design a system in AutoCAD® and/or 3D Solidworks® for approval.
  • We use state of the art laser cutting techniques and CNC machining tools to make repeatable, highest quality finished products.
  • Midbrook has over 160,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space, where our assembly team will build and run off the equipment to assure it meets the criteria expected.

Hurricane® Equipment

Material Handling Continued

  • Agitation Tank
  • Overhead Monorail
  • Push / Pull
  • Pick & Place
  • High Pressure
  • Ultrasonics

Belt Conveying Systems

  • Benefits –
  • Modular in design
  • Excellent flexibility in terms of parts, part orientation and material handling.
  • Simple, reliable material handling.
  • Drawbacks –
  • Contact time correlates to increased length.
  • Spray pattern difficult to focus while part in constant motion.
rotary auger drum systems
Rotary/Auger Drum Systems


  • Continuous or batch operation
  • Excellent cleaning due to combination spray & immersion
  • Simple load/unload features
  • Excellent for small parts


  • Possible part damage due to part-on-part contact
  • Lack of Lot Integrity

Indexing System

  • Benefits –
    • Allows for precision cleaning of complex parts.
    • Opens the entire part surface to cleaning action.
    • Excellent flexibility in terms of part orientation
    • and material handling.
    • Reduced footprint.
  • Drawbacks –
    • Must be fixtured.
    • Requires more sophisticated (or labor intensive) material handling.
    • Can not handle multiple parts.

Cabinet Cleaning System

  • Benefits –
    • Single point load/unload.
    • Typically smaller system footprint.
    • Works well in low production environment.
    • Can handle baskets and large parts.
  • Drawbacks –
  • Multiple stage cleaning requires sophisticated controls,
  • Tends to cross-contaminate solutions.
  • Batch process

sealed solvent degreasing
Sealed Solvent Degreasing
  • Batch Style
  • Hermetically sealed to reclaim nearly 100% of any solvent used.
  • Perchlorethlyne
    • Also known as PERC, is not banned and has been used in precision parts cleaning for more than 50 years. The Mac Dry unit minimizes emissions and maximizes solvent recovery making this a smart choice.
