Industry

Complete industrial solutions

Success on every level

Since dirt knows no bounds, you need cleaning solutions that extend across all process levels of an industrial company: from infrastructure and production-related areas to production itself, the cleaning-in-place installation. For this variety of tasks, you need more than just the sum of individual applications. You need a system that guarantees the best results every time. And you get that from us.

 

Our Kärcher System

In collaboration with operators like you, we seek to de velop the most innovative solutions, products and services, always with the aim of creating an optimised system. A system made up of machines, accessories, cleaning agents and services which can be easily integrated into your operational processes and which brings real added value as an industrial solution. A system that makes a difference. Our Kärcher System. 

Engineered Solutions

One partner for everything

In industry, you are faced with a whole range of often very specific cleaning tasks: machinery and systems, moulds and parts, as well as transport routes and storage areas, both in doors and outdoors. Each one of these areas is very complex in itself. Combining all of them into one functioning system of the highest effectiveness and efficiency requires extensive expertise and experience. As world market leaders for cleaning technology, we offer this expertise and over 75 years’ experience. We offer the unique Kärcher System. And we offer the solution to every one of your tasks. What do you get out of it? All of the benfits.

Increase efficiency through intelligent cleaning management. By ensuring cleanliness in every area, you simultaneously improve quality. And with our innovative, gentle and protective cleaning procedures, you optimise care and maintenance of your systems.

By using our customised solutions for specific production environments, you can ensure compliance with sector-specific hygiene and safety standards at all times. For extreme or critical environments like Ex zones, danger zones, areas exposed to extreme temperatures and areas with limited accessibility, we offer highly specialised solutions. This enables you to promote your core business. And what’s more, you benefit from reduced downtime.

One of the most demanding cleaning tasks is the removal of critical substances. Whether explosive, hazardous, oily, greasy or stubborn dirt – with our special applications, virtually any type of dirt can be removed safely and reliably, without damaging your systems. And when it comes to tackling extremely in - tractable dirt and encrustations, all you need, where it is technically possible, is the pure power of water: our ultra high-pressure water jet systems remove any type of dirt, and even paint, coatings and cured concrete, in a targeted way.

Breaks are important, so long as they are planned. To ensure that this remains the case, we provide cleaning solutions which you can use parallel to your production processes without interruption. And with minimal set-up and changeover times.

Your working environment is already complex enough. That is why you will appreciate the easy handling of our cleaning machines. The same applies to our machines for special requirements. And to ensure that after successful completion of your cleaning you are not then faced with new problems, we support you with environmentally sustainable procedures for cleaning and processing production residues and waste water.

Dry ice cleaning

Dry ice blasting: powerful, gentle, residue­free

Do you want a way to remove stubborn dirt that is as effective as it is gentle? Then the Ice Blaster from Kärcher is the right solution for you. The system uses compressed air and dry ice pellets to remove rubber residues, oils, greases, parting agents, dyes etc. from workpieces or surfaces.

Our Ice Blasters can be used even in areas where cleaning with water or sand is prohibited by law or is uneconomical. Dry ice pellets dissipate residue-free – without leaving any moisture. This means that you can also clean components for which conventional methods are not suitable, such as electric motors. You can very easily produce the pellets yourself using our pelletiser. And with the right accessories for all of the diverse applications, you always achieve outstanding cleaning results.

Reactor and boiler cleaning

System solutions for agitator vessels and reactors

You work with a variety of different substances and processes. It is clear that you need individual solutions to meet high hygiene and cleanliness requirements. And we provide these in every form: mobile, permanently installed, fully integrated and automated.

The simplified system diagram shows you how a modular cleaning solution could look for you. The mobile cleaning unit approaches the container and the movable spray head cleans all internal wall surfaces and components. Once cleaning is complete, the cleaning medium is fed back into the circulation tank and filtered. It sounds simple, but requires a high level of technical expertise and ex - perience. We have both. And we will dedicate our expertise and experience to finding the right solution for you.
