PERO R1 - The FASTEST in its class.


That's the foundation on which we've developed the R1, the most productive vacuum degreasing unit on the market today - suitable fo all popular cleaning agents, including hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons and modified alcohols.

But don't take our word for it.

With ultra short cycle times, outstanding throughput and the highest standards of surface cleaning, PERO's R1 sets a new benchmark in component cleaning performance.

The R1 is suitable for any type of machined or formed metal components that can be fitted into a standard 530 x 320 x 200 mm basket (21" x 13" x 8"). Other sizes can be supplied to special order.

  • Machined components
  • Punch, drawn and extruded parts
  • Precision ground instruments
  • Close tolerance electro-mechanical items
  • Aerospace components
  • Engine and motor industry parts
  • Heat exchangers
  • Special purpose units

Prior to shipping, each PERO cleaning machine is rigorously tested under simulated production conditions. In additon, all workholding equipment is throughly tested as part of the prove out procedure, which includes the measurement and recording of emission values.

Key User Benefits:
  • All PERO units feature intuitive operation with familiar touch screen controls (seen at right)

  • The R1's ultra fast cleaning cycle times ensure maximum productivity - delivering the same throughput as many competitors' much larger machines

  • Extremely high contaminant separation rates ensure maximum solvent life and cleaning performance

  • Automatic drainage of contaminants into SafeTainers within the R1's short maintenance cycle ensures minimum equipment downtime

  • Optional, retrofittable distillation units will maintain indefinite, round the clock parts processing

  • The R1 incorporates state of the art vacuum degreasing technology - eliminating emissions and providing maximum solvent utilization throughout an extended operating life

Tailored Solutions:
  • Stainless steel work baskets and self-sealing filter bags are supplied as standard. A series of ancillary items – such as magnetic filter cartridges – enable users to easily tailor installations to their individual requirements. (seen at right)
